I am hard pressed to realize that almost a week has gone by. Wow - somehow life goes by quickly and I don't get back here. So you know that I haven't just been sitting around, here are a few photos of things going on in my sewing room.
Do you remember my Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll mystery quilt? I struggled and struggled about what to do with that. I just didn't like it. Yes, I spent hours and hours on it - I think I counted that the red blocks alone had 64 pieces in them. But no matter what I did, it just didn't please me. So on the second day of our Stashbusters retreat I offered it to my long-armer friend, Alayne. Meanwhile she had been thinking about it and offered to trade me the quilt for work on her machine. Voila! Perfect agreement. I did finish up a couple of blocks for that quilt this week and on Friday, she and I spent a chunk of the day with the design wall laying it all out. She is delighted and so am I.
Oh yes, and my sweet friend Caro arrives from the Netherlands in just over two weeks. We always have such a good time - I drive and she shops. Fun! I'll be sure to keep you posted.
