Weekend Catchup!


This is the progress I've made so far on my scrap quilt. I'm working on the two remaining sides. The two sides need a total of 180 2.5" squares. I wanted to get them all cut out before doing any sewing.



This pile is made up of the 180 squares I need to finish the 2 sides. It took me all week to cut them. The hardest part was looking through my stash and finding the many fabrics. I used to belong to a club where I would receive twenty 4 inch squares every month. Those squares came in very handy!



As a diversion, I made this little fabric basket. If you're interested in making one, you can find the directions here. I think it would make a great gift. You can fill it with so many different items. I was thinking of adding ribbons to each corner. So fun!



My husband and I haven't been out to eat lately due to his addiction to golf. But we went out last night and I had this great drink! It was called a Pina Colada-tini! So good! Nice way to enjoy the weekend!

    1. I'm definitely enjoying looking through my stash. I have so much fabric I forgot I even had! I needed that drink Saturday night. So busy at work Saturday morning. It was therapeutic!!

  2. This piece is really coming together so well; I spent a year doing squares-works--the cutting is the hardest part and finding enough different fabrics, too...that drink looks amazing! Hugs, Julierose

Quiet Memorial Day

I haven't done much sewing or quilting at all. I'm still adjusting to the passing of my dad. However, I would like to get to Ar...
