Friday excitement!

Soooo glad it is Friday!  How about you?  I’ve got much waiting on me at home and I’m ready to get back into it.

I had started my June AYOS this past week and am working on the pinwheel blocks in the Dulcinea pattern.  I went through my stash and found that I had two charm packs of Indigo Crossing by Minick & Simpson (MODA).  Very soothing color combination of blues, tans, creams.  I can’t wait to see how it will turn out.

I also continued my Robin’s Nest applique.  I went to the store yesterday and bought some silk thread to see if it made a difference.  I was using 100% cotton.  It sure feels better gliding through the fabric, but I don’t know if I can tell much difference in the end result.  I’ll stick with it though, because it does feel good.

I had to go out shopping for a new dress (first time in years) this week.  My mother was awarded the Paul Harris Fellows award from the local Rotary Club last night.  Very proud of her and everything she does for my hometown.  Born, raised, married, returned, and retired from teaching in the same town.  Anyway, getting out and about at 6:30 pm here is still horribly warm.  Really doesn’t make you want to do clothes shopping when you are dripping with sweat just from walking to the mall doors from the car.

Weekend at home with no big plans, other than the usual. 

Goals for this coming week:

  • Complete June AYOS – Dulcinea
  • Complete Robin’s Nest applique center and cut out first border
  • Complete the 20 blocks for Rah Rah Rally quilt
  • Play with kittens! 

Here they are napping, one practically on top of the other.  Good thing they are so cute, because I really forgot how bad litter boxes smell…

Have a great weekend!  See you on the other side!
