How was your weekend?

How was your weekend?

(Image from Yahoo)

Honey Do took a day off work after his business trip. We had plans to run some errands together, but otherwise it was meant to be a quiet day.

Newton was at school, while Honey Do replaced the plumbin in the toilet I did dishes, hung a load of laundry outside to dry and worked on more blocks for the lace cabins.


By dinner time, I had three rows assembled. I put together extra blocks from the leftover pieces. I might have to come up with a new quilt using up these blocks.



Some of my fabric pieces are small, so I'm using them for framing Pam's quilt (church quilt). I sorted through and matched up with the blocks.

Saturday was another early morning. I stayed quiet until everyone else was up and mobile. Homemade multigrain waffles for breakfast. Chores done, I worked on more of the leftover blocks. I kept finding bits and pieces to use up. 30 plus minutes at the sewing machine :)

The sun's shining and we're all relatively quiet. The temperature has risen considerably over the last day or two and we're feeling the upper 80s. The forecast for the next week is in the 90s all week.

Sunday I spent time working on Pam's quilt while Newton played video games and Honey Do went fishing. Spent the entire afternoon at the sewing machine :)

It sounds like a lovely weekend to me! Lots of scraps were involved, and that's always a good thing. =)

You are a whizz at using scraps, girl! Really love those blocks, and I adore your Redwork quilt, that turned out so gorgeous!!!!! Stay cool - we're still in the 90's here, yuck.
