Look at this beauty! One of my friends brought this Tuesday when I hosted my quilty friends. This is Easy Street - the latest mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter's blog. Look for the tab at the top of her blog for the instructions.
I love this pattern - must put it on my to do list.
I don't know what's going on with me this week, but I've done everything but sew! Every single day there seemed to be some sort of distraction. Yesterday hubby had a meeting in Birmingham. At the very last minute (5:00 am!) I decided to tag along. I drop him off downtown and headed to Joann's to stock up on some miscellany. No fabric purchased, but I did get some bamboo knitting needles for future sock knitting, some sock yarn, a stock of rick rack for my next Secret Project, and some hand sewing needles.
Then I headed down to Cracker Barrel to sip hot tea while my in-laws ate a late breakfast. I enjoyed visiting with them for a bit. Then I went back downtown to pick up hubby and we hit the road back to Auburn.
This was my first trip back to B'ham since we moved last June. I have good memories from there, but I do not miss the TRAFFIC! I do miss my friends and neighbors though. But I'll be going back to visit next month - I scheduled a mammogram. Eventually I'll get this done here, but this is a follow up appointment so I figure I should continue to follow up there for now.
And now excuse me while I head to the studio. My mother is coming Sunday and I need to finish her quilt!!!!!!!!!
I am a wife, mother to two daughters, an avid art quilter, cooking contest entrant, and dog lover. My book, FABRIC PHOTO PLAY, AQS, 2005, demonstrates my original technique for making portrait quilts. My second book (with Peggy Rhodes), Quick and Easy Hexie Quilts was recently released.
