Well, it was a completely unproductive week. I did manage to go blueberry picking with Aidan on Tuesday and got a few of them frozen for tasty treats this winter. With the rainy week we had, I am sad to say I got no sewing done. I was a little under the weather this weekend.... just lazy I think and got a bout of heartburn that just keeps coming back. Then a splitting headache yesterday afternoon for a good 6 hours... not fun with a babbling baby.
I did order the 2 civil war diary books and got them from Amazon 2 days later! Gotta love that service. I don't think I will be starting that project this year but look forward to doing that sometime in the future.
I also signed up for a mystery quilt using batiks... something I have never worked with. I stopped in at my LQS on Friday and got the info and materials list. The ladies there were great helping me with ideas for the fabric choices and were having a great time talking to Aidan while Mommy browsed. I'll have to pop back into the store sometime and buy the fabrics I need but I have a good month before the class starts. I selected greens and blues for the colorway...and this might become a gift for someone who loves those colors. We'll see how it turns out first.
I need to go grab fabric from my stash to do the quilt that Beth at bzyqltr is doing on her blog. I am thinking I might do a scrappy version.. but have not decided yet. We'll see what I pick out for fabrics.
Hope everyone has a great week.

I'm just starting to work with Batiks, but I find them so fascinating!

I love working with batiks. Made my bed quilt with them and matching pillow cases ~ they come out very crisp.
