Until then, I prepped the first three appliqué blocks for the free 1857 Album Quilt Along over at Sentimental Stitches. Nice gentle curves and big pieces is a nice change after lots of little parts last year with the midget appliqué blocks. Instead of the red, green and cheddar I plan to do green, purples and yellow.
Saturday after Emily was Mona Lisa in France at our Thinking Day
we headed home for Aidan's birthday party with his grandparents down here in Florida. We had a nice game of Chinese Checkers which was a gift from his Grandparents in Vermont. Thanks Mom and Dad - we had a great time playing.
Today is the boys requested birthday meal out - he wants to go to Steak and Shake! After that lunch, Grandma is taking the kids to the movies and I'll pack my bags for a drive over to Tampa for a couple of days of training. Now you know why I wanted that quilt finished this week - so I can bring it with me for binding work at the hotel! I think the sewing machine will come with me too as the bottom of that box of appliqué has the cut out parts for a heart baby quilt. Some nylon netting and my crochet hook will come with me also - to make some scrubbies for Mom and me.
Linking up with Kathy over at Slow Stitching Sunday.
