American Mother's Day
Willemijn seems to be taking great joy in pointing out my error - no, it is not my first, but at least I did admit it! But we are moving on, right?
Happy Mother's Day for all mothers and mother-type folks. Flowers sent by my sweet son from the other Washington - but that should change in a few months - yeah!
Stashbusters has finally gotten ourselves organized to think about and plan for our raffle quilt. Last week we all brought in our stash of appropriate colors of batiks (no yellow) and divvied them up amongst ourselves. Each person will make 3 blocks and then we will sort and arrange them in a pleasing fashion. I haven't made mine yet, but I do like the block and as it finishes at 12" it should go really fast.
Friday morning was spent working with Kris - an incredible artist from our church. She is making a wedding canopy for a couple from the church who will be married later this month. So between us we surged and finished 20 organza panels. I wish I could be there to see them all assembled (we're off on a camping trip) so perhaps someone will take photos and I can see.
Today is my turn to be the CTA on duty at a local fabric store. We are just there to provide help and perhaps some answers to sewing/quilting questions that shoppers have. Our CTA group has been doing this for a couple of years at another location of this same fabric store, so we are now instituting this at a local store. It's always fun. And I get to do some handwork while I'm sitting there. [finishing my friendship exchange - photos to follow] Happy week-end.
