Oh, it is nice to have a totally "down" day - nothing required. Just a quick check in with you. The regular events have been happening this week. Wednesday evening was the Stashbusters Quilt Group - regular simi-monthly gathering. We are working on our nine patches for the quilt we will donate to "cover" our rent. I believe the pattern is called Oklahoma 9 patch - with the lighter colors in the 1 and 3 positions. The colors are fairly muted, plain and patterns.
Blogger is having troubles with photos this afternoon - we'll see if it can manage any more. In addition to our 9 patches, folks are working on various projects
- even finishing up a Christmas wall hanging. Oh well, you know how it goes, somtimes.
I've been working on #2 of three baby quilts that are on the "due" list. Is everyone having babies right now? So giving this one a trial - see how I like it. It is much softer and more pleasant to a little "pea".
I won't get this completed before I head out of town, but that isn't all bad. Earlier I visited Barnes and Noble, nearby, to buy some quilting magazines to take with me. It was the one thing that an internet friend in the Netherlands asked for. Also found some cross-stitch magazines for another friend in Belgium. Won't it be fun? Just to have enough room in my suitcase for a few clothes, but leaving gifts behind means space in my suitcase to bring one or two things home with me, right? All American quilting/needlework supplies are so very expensive in Europe, this is an easy thing for me to bring along. I have a new 2 GB card for my camera so intend to find lots of photo-ops.
I will try to blog on my journey (I'll take the camera cord) and will return here March 9th - with stories forever. Life is soooooo good!
