Today was a Play Day for me! I met a friend for lunch (Hi Karen!) and we lingered over a lovely lunch at Johnny Carino's. Then we headed to Michael's to get a hoop, and other things. You see, Karen has decided she wants her own sampler wall, and has picked up the needle after about a 20 year hiatus. I had to help get her stocked and ready! And she is now ready! So exciting to have another stitching buddy!
After our foray at Michael's, we headed to Barnes & Noble, where we took our sweet ol' time leafing thru quilt, knitting and stitching magazines. Great fun! I was good and only came home with one magazine...Knits Weekend. It had some great projects I hope to knit!
Before we knew it, it was 4:00 (we started at 11:30)..and so we went our separate ways and headed for home.
I spent some time with the hubs, driving thru neighborhoods and looking at homes for sale. We're in the market...so the fun begins!
Once home, we had dinner and then I headed down to the quilt den.
This is the stack of fat eighths I'm working with for the Farmers Wife Quilt blocks so far. Another bundle should be arriving in the next week, so I needed to get some more blocks pieced.
This is just a sampling of the blocks I've completed. I do not plan on making this queen size...but rather a nice large lap/small twin, so I'm being selective in the blocks I do. You know what that means?? I'm SURE to have lots of fabric leftovers! I am loving the fabrics that Primitive Gatherings has been sending, so am just super excited about using them in another scrap quilt!
And speaking of scrap quilts....I played with the stash a little and pulled for a new quilt.
I need some regular ol' muslin though, so will have to get that before I can start this one! Another one for the drawing board!
I love play days!!
