Vacation

Today is the end of my first week's vacation.  If you recall, last week-end I drove to Utah for a family reunion.  Tuesday, I finished my "Willow Weave" from "Aunt Reen's" Jelly Roll Sew Along.  Wednesday, I worked on my "Hidden Baskets" and Thursday, I kind of took the day off!!  Early morning, I made a mini quilt that is 11 sq. inches.  It is called "Baking Powder Biscuits" by "Sweet Confections".


I played hooky the rest of the day with some friends.  We drove to Hermiston, Oregon, to shop at a new quilt shop called "Material Girl".  It is a rather small shop with a nice selection of fabric and offers internet sales.  The shop has only been open since April.  We had lunch, and then drove home.  I worked some more on my "Hidden Baskets", and then met with my sewing group called "Sew What".  This is a group of beginners who are very eager to learn new things.  I showed them how to make a simple shoulder bag and they all did an excellent job!!  I took a picture but it won't rotate!?

This evening I can say that "Ta Da", I have finished "Hidden Baskets" and the baskets will be obvious to you, finally!!




My project for tomorrow is to start the "Pam Buda" Sew Along and get a couple of quilts quilted.
