Final Weekend update

I went to Patrice's this evening to spend some quality time with my buds. I got a lot accomplished and it was nice spending time with the girls... erh, uh, ladies. :)

They showed me what to do with the nine patch blocks that I had made so I was able to finish that top.


Patrice got the binding finished on her Nickel Quilt Streak of Lightening. It is stunning!


I finished my August block for the Best Friends BOM. It is so close to being done! I can't wait to get the finishing kit so that I can put the top together!


I was able to give a couple of the secret projects out and they were very well liked! And Linda was very sweet and got me a copy of this book. I have thumbed through it already and it looks awesome!!

Linda also brought me a doggie bed for Max and Maisy. Linda has cats and they used the bed for a while but then abandoned it and she thought that Max and Maisy would enjoy it. Since we had one that they used that got thrown out after the flood, I knew that it would be put to good use. I brought it in, dropped it on the floor and they went crazy! It was a good 5 minutes of this:




I am sure that they are going to love hanging out in this bed while I am in the basement quilting!
So here is a recap of things that I wanted to do this weekend and how I fared:

  1. Quilt an Alaska charity quilt
  2. Quilt a Kid Komforts charity quilt
  3. Piece an Alaska charity quilt
  4. Piece a Kid Komforts charity quilt
  5. Finish the 4 secret projects
  6. Work on the other set of secret projects
  7. Finish one more pair of pants
  8. Finish my Courier bag homework
  9. Piece my August block for the BOM

I didn't get any quilting done, but I will have plenty of time in the evenings this week to do that. I will need to get the quilting done and binding ready to hand off to Dominique to work on this weekend. And I want to get the other secret projects done and a large quilt quilted to send to Florida so that I can have something to work on while I am down there and watching TV in the evenings.

Tomorrow night, I am going to the Reds game with some co-workers and the auditors. Should be a good time, although I am not too worried about watching the game. And it is a short work week. Woo hoo!!!

Congrats on getting so much done on your list this weekend! I'm way impressed!

Is that your Disappearing 9-Patch quilt? It's a lot larger than I thought it would be - how big were the patches? I have one cut and sewn and cut... ready to sew when :ahem: I have nothing else to do. :-)
