Weekend Report: Sewing, Cats, Oscars
I started sewing the rows together with help from Stella. I think she is making sure the colors are all distributed evenly.
The fabric is French General's Maison de Garance. Yummy yummy yummy.
I got about half of the top together so maybe I'll get the other half sewn this upcoming weekend.
My Battle Hymn fabric project is calling me and I sewed one of the star blocks together to see what it looked like.
Hmmm need to think on this.
On Sunday, I worked at Starbucks all morning. On my way home, my truck (Xena) drove itself to Intown Quilters to rest in the parking lot while I browsed inside.
Really it was Xena's fault, she wanted to rest in the beautiful spring-like sun for awhile.
Really. That's the story and we are sticking to it.
I hadn't been in the shop in a long time, even though it is on the way home from Starbucks and my day job, I try to be good and only stop every once and awhile. The shop is filled to the brim with Modern Quilt fabrics, Kaffe Fassett, brights, and batiks.
I had a "filled" shopper card so snagged some goodies with a discount. A couple of yards of Robert Kaufman organic cotton solid in gray. I'm looking forward to sewing with this. A cool laptop bag pattern by Fig Tree Quilts. Some Valdani thread for wool appliqué in pretty purples. And a patterns to make owl potholders. Owls as potholders. Oh owly love! These would be great in my kitchen. Now I just need some time to make all this LOL!
Did you stay up late watching the Oscars? S. and I said we were not going to this year because we only saw a couple of the movies that were nominated for several of the main awards (Moneyball, Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Bridesmaids). We stayed up until the end anyway. I was sorry that Brad Pitt didn't win for Moneyball because I thought he was really good in the movie. I was so happy that Meryl Streep won though. She is class and graciousness personified as well as being an unparalleled actor extraordinaire.
