Woooooooooooohooooo!! I'm starting a four day weekend! WOOT WOOT! Forget that the calendar says it's Thursday...it was MY Friday and I am ECSTATIC about that! Never mind that my plans for the weekend were foiled at the near last minute (sorry Paulette & MM...). The hubs was invited on a fishing trip to Lake Erie (his most fav' place in the world to catch walleye)...so he left on a whim this afternoon! He's gone enjoying himself until Wednesday or Thursday! And *I* am on a four day weekend! Off until TUESDAY! OH ME OH MY what kind of trouble can I find to get in to???
Welllllll....I thought I'd kick off the early Friday by surprising my bud, Twyla, out at www.quiltedmem.com and bring dinner to her and visit...and shop...and yack...and visit...and eat. See...it's shop-hop week, so she's been keeping late hours...and, well, I have been remiss in getting out there lately and I do always love chit-chatting with Twyla!
So off to Twyla's I went....dinner in hand..........and THIS is what I came home with...
Never fails...there's always something fabulous I have to have out there! I picked up the Turning Twenty book...and picked 20 fat quarters of some yummy fabs! Also a great shirting...and the latest issue of Quilt Sampler!!! A nice little haul and I so badly want to start that turning twenty quilt! But nope...I'm going to first piece the Americana blocks that are waiting for me downstairs. That's one of my missions for the long weekend! :o)
During our conversation, she showed me a quilt in the latest Quilts & More that she's pulling fabrics for....it's going to be sweet! Well...then I had to run to the store later this evening...and there on the newstand was Quilts & More and I couldn't resist picking it up. Hmmm...now that I think about it, I wonder if Twyla had that there all along too!? Anyhoooo...it's a great issue and I'm itching to start multiple projects!
I'm geared up for the long four days and hope to get much accomplished! I'm going to get quite a bit in on the Blackbird Designs sampler....put those blocks together that are waiting downstairs.....get that small applique quilt quilted and framed.....
AND start the Turning Twenty quilt! Seems doable...no hubby around to cook for.....ability to stay in jammies for days on end.....yep.....I think I can do it!
What creative stuff is on YOUR weekend agenda? Would love to hear all about it!
