Weekend wrap up

Well not much accomplished this weekend. Did get into a wee bit o' trouble with Karin and Becky at a trip to Sweet Home Quilt shop. We all met there on Saturday to see the new fabric and try to resist temptation. Becky talked me and Karin into doing an online mystery quilt from the Quiltville website called "Orange Crush" so I bought a some deep yellow (not an "orange" person) and am going to find the rest of the fabric in my stash. Karin bought a book of charm square patterns and of course when I looked at hers, I decided I needed one too. So I have been sufficiently "peer pressured" by my friends and have some projects to start. The rest of Saturday was rainy and I mostly vegged on the couch. Worked at Starbucks this AM and since it is cold and gray, Edgar decided it was perfect weather for this:
(the quilt is a flannel rag quilt and the best for "couch potatoing") So I am going to join him and maybe read the Sunday NY Times or maybe just nap.

Hi Gretch...
So sorry I missed ya'll on Saturday. I was having fun Grammy-time with my littlest joy, Hayden, and then played hooky after that.

Isn't peer pressure great?!?!? Good, quilty friends can get you into all sorts of trouble if you let them!
Have a good week...

Sounds like you had fun. I stayed away from quilt fabric-- went to Gail K's Fabric on Cheshire Bridge with 2 ASG sewing guild friends!!

A rag quilt is the best on a wet cool day.
