Wonderful Weekend

The tail end of the week for me last week involved LTW bringing me bolts of fabric that a friend of hers gave her.  She was sharing with me and my friends and the CL's and wasn't that the nicest thing?  Her friend was going out of business and has just this last little bits of fabric to get rid of and so they shared.

I took Friday off of work to go and see DD2 at MSU.  So of course I made a shop hop out of it!  I got these lovely fabrics at the second shop, Wendy's Simple Stitching and Country Stitches.  I can't tell you what I intend to use them for as it is a secret.  Just remember that you saw them.
I just love this little owl and thought this would be great to make it out of.  Now I need to fill it in with more from the line.
I just fell in love with these little gremlins.  Not sure what I will do with them.
The Halloween fabric is a back for another Halloween project and how could I pass up the blue and green yumminess??
I just ADORE this pattern, but had nothing of these colors in my stash.  It is a fairly big quilt, like twin size.  I guess I thought it would be wall hanging size but isn't it cute? I found the pattern online.
Anyway, I had fun with DD2 too.  We went shopping at the mall and she got some new jeans.  I asked her if she wanted to call the BF to go out with us but she didn't want to share her time with me with him!  I did insist, after he texted and asked her if she wanted to eat beans and weenies with him for dinner, that she call and invite him out for dinner with us.  We went to the Olive Garden and had a nice dinner.  Then she went back to her house with him and I drove home.  All in all a great day!

On Saturday, Aiden was in this box that I brought home from DD's place.  This box was not without a cat in it all weekend!  She was taking a quick cat bath here.
I did work on the centers for the Big Ten blocks and got them all stitched down.  I thought you might like to see these two after LTW got done with the embroidery work.  Neat, huh?
I made the Big Ten block since I need to applique all the emblems all over it.  They are just set in place as I was missing the OSU bit.  I picked it up at work today and will have it for placement tonight.  
I know that I skipped over Sat but we had QTYW day and there were only 2 others besides me.  I even went out and bought stuff for lunch (figuring people would stay longer if there was food) but just Ruth Ann and Mary and I were there to eat it.  I did manage to get 2 sets of the Chubby chicks  quilt cut out though.  I still need to trace the actual chicks onto fusible but I got all the pieced parts cut.  I had even bought some w-o-w fabric on Friday that looked like chick feathers to use in the one I am keeping!  Then I went home and watched the MSU Notre Dame football game, we won which was awesome!

I am meeting Yuki for dinner tonight so will have that to share tomorrow.  Have a great day!!

You have been so busy. I'm glad you found time to get us caught up. Your new fabrics look wonderful, and I was thinking "Pam may be one of those rare fabric collectors that is worthy of every scrap, because she is so super-productive!" Here's wishing you a super week.

You're not going to believe this...
I have that owl pattern...

Love that snow globe panel...

Cat's can bathe anywhere!
I have a cartoon that shows a parody on the tortoise & the hare - the hare is replaced by a cat & the nap is replaced by a bath!

I am always amazed the way mine can stop what ever they are doing - do a quick lick & keep on rolling...

What gorgeous fabric....I'm jealous!! Almost everything I've made in over a year has been from my stash. It is good that I'm doing that but it is about time for a fabric binge, don't ya think?

LuAnn said...

Wow you hit the jackpot!!!! And, a shop hop to boot. Have fun with all those fabrics.

Very Mary said...

Bolts of fabric? Didn't you pee your pants just a little?!

Pat said...

So nice of LTW to share with you! any trouble finding a home for the bolts?!

Your shop hop sounds like a great way to travel to MSU and what a fun day with your DD!

Your Big Ten quilt is progressing nicely! Is the raffle soon? I am so out of the Big Ten football thinks I need to fly *my Sparty* flag :)

So those are embroideries? Did LTW digitize them? Inquiring mind here... It's awesome. Now, that Owl pattern and the fabric line are the cutest things I've seen in a while. Love, love, love them! I'm going to try and find that pattern, what fabric line is that, do tell!
