Well it has been a while since I last blogged and I lot has happened in 3 weeks! Sorry for the long post, I have a lot to catch up on.
David and I went with another couple, Mike and Tammie to Hilton Head Island to meet Ed and Michelle at their place there. I thought we would have fun, but we had a lot more than I figured. We all laughed and enjoyed ourselves so much that we are going back next year! We had a blast!
We got home and I met the counter top man and he installed a marble top on an antique dresser that I had gotten at an estate sale, but it had no top. It looks so much better!
On the 19th, I left to go to a spring retreat at Camp Blanding in Starke, Florida. I got to sew as much as my little heart desired! I needed to work on my 80 basket blocks for a swap that was due the first of May, nothing like waiting until the last minute! It was 8 of 10 different colors/sets. I only had 3 sets of basket bottoms done, so needless to say I had to get busy. After I got all the bottoms done, I set to work on my bias bars and then I had to hand sew 80 basket handles. Oh my word, that was my first time to do hand sewn handles and I hope I don’t disappoint them too much!
I also worked on two small quilts. One was from a design that Paula worked up! I really like it. Here’s a picture of her quilt to give us motivation!
Here’s the other little one I made. I got the kit from Temecula Quilt Company when I was there in January. I like how it turned out too!
I sewed the papers on month 6, of Primitive Gatherings, Among Friends now just to cut them up. Next up was sewing up month 5 blocks! I got those stitched up just in the nick of time before it was time to pack up!
I got so much done and I love this group of women!
Once I got home it has been a wild catch up, lucky for me, I have a wonderful and very supportive husband who is an awesome business partner! He took care of keeping me in the loop while I was away and I handled what I needed to.
Iron works are done on the stairs, cabinets are almost done and the shower is all in. It looks fabulous!
A few more little finishing touches need to be done and it will be time to move in!
I am so excited I can hardly stand it!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
