Well, the weather fooled me. It looked beautiful out with a clear sky this morning - a very nice change from cloudy and rain the last week. Ran some errands quickly and got home. Checked the garden and picked some beans and peas and scallions. Onto the pool next, to drain out some water before it overflowed and clean the filter. Got stuck at that point since the o-ring popped out and we didn't have the lube to put it back in at home. So.... since it was near lunchtime I took some water in for testing and brought Daddy some lunch and a quick visit with the kids at the store. Got what I needed and got home just as the rain and thunder started. Bummer.... there goes working on the pool. Hmmm..... got the kids settle down for late naps (Thank Goodness they both went down without too much fuss and are still sleeping 2 hours later...... I know, I should go wake them.....) Lots of cleaning and things to be done around the house but..... I didn't feel like it. I wanted to SEW. So...... this is my thinking..... cleaning will be there later and the ability to sew while kids are napping will not........ I sewed. (Don't you just love how my mind works?) I didn't feel like cutting things for the Birds in the Air blocks... I wanted something new and quick. I pulled a jelly roll and the pineapple blossom instructions from Quiltville that I printed out last night and started to cut and sew. I feel much better now and this is what I have to show for it. 4 12.5 inch blocks
and lots of these little double pinwheels.
The color contrast is not what I wanted but at this point I am going to make about 8 more of them... maybe 12 or 16 if I have enough fabric and make a little lap quilt with it. The extra bonus triangles? I believe Emmy said Baby needed another quilt as she only has 3 that she is covered up with each and every nap/bedtime by her Mommy Emmy.
So, what did you do this Saturday? Head on over to SoScrappy and see what purple things others have been working on. I am calling this a purple sewing day since some of the fabrics above are purple. Ok, I'd better go pull the fish for the fish and chips for dinner and pick up the house a bunch on my way to wake up the children. I do want them to be able to sleep tonight. Have a great Saturday.
