I am going to have to share what I did this week LATER because I just realized that ALMOST everything that I did is a secret. So, why am I even bothering to mention this? Because some people will be REMINDING me that I forgot my QUILTY REPORT……so, I will give a little hint.
I spent the first part of the week making favors for Saturday brunch at Quilt Camp! I will be having fun smelling the salt air in Corolla, North Carolina from Thursday through Sunday!!!! And not only will I be savoring the smell and sound of the ocean, but I will be soaking up the sunshine and quilting away with my beach retreat friends. I remember three years ago I went to the beach for the first time and it was my FIRST QUILT RETREAT ever….and it is that time again. I am so excited. I will post pictures of the favors when I get home next week.
OH NO, I can’t show pictures of my ATC (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) that I made this week either (I am really on a roll, aren’t I?) Actually I just finished them, it has taken quite awhile…….but I am not trading them until the last Sunday of the month, so they have to remain a secret……I promise I will share pictures later!
OK – finally a picture…..my binding chair….. I decided that if this chair stacked with quilts that needed binding were in my closet, where I could see it every day, that it would be my motivation to do the binding on my quilts that have been accumulating (I LOVE BINDING); but alas, the stack is not going down – it is moving in the wrong directions! THE GOOD NEWS is that if my sewing machine breaks down at Quilt Camp this week, I will get a lot of binding finished. I am going to fill my car with quilts!! You know, it is POSSIBLE - ast year both ” Bonnie” my Singer Featherweight AND “ Molly” my Hello Kitty Machine stopped working and I got LOTS done on my Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt!
I also finished the back for Baby Cook’s SHE Ribbon Quilt……yeah!
The good news is that I worked in the yard today – Max and I pruned and raked – and the sunshine was FABULOUS!!!!! If my camera were not broken I would have taken pictures! HM…..what else did I do that I couldn’t take pictures of. Would you believe that I baked a beautiful four-layer chocolate cake? And the apple pie was gorgeous!!!!!
