Come meet the blockheads!
KT and her crew all came over yesterday for lunch and the afternoon. Two of the boys are on spring break and we figured what better way to celebrate than have friends (read that family!) come over to play.
And play we did.
KT's basket and baggy of quilty goodness. Thoughtful and resourceful her brought a power strip so that
we both could have some quality time with our machines. Thankfully, both of us have an addiction to soda and lunch at Taco Bell (closest place to eat, we don't want to waste time when we could be sewing!) started the afternoon festivities off with andale, andale!
KT worked on
her projects so fast, her hands blur! She is a very efficient sewer. I'm more of a meandering putzer.
She finished up her pinwheel block for the week.
She's making two pinwheel block quilts
and she thinks I have have too many projects going on and a poor little orphan gets to come live at my house.
Where it will be loved and NOT called names! LOL
She finished up her star blocks.
I can't tell you the feeling to have a friend like KT. Who knows where your iron is (well, it was on the ironing board waiting to be used to press work shirts), is comfortable in bare feet in your house, has her kids wear gray footed socks to keep you from shame, and still loves your dog even though she's been a very bad puppy.
But so was KT's little "puppy". Her youngest decided to help himself to the open container of homemade chocolate chip cookies KT brought over to share. Well, they were on the edge of the counter top and someone did leave the lid off and well, the dog was right there too.
Fate. They will be best friends forever. Unfortunately, no one else got to enjoy anymore cookies.
Meanwhile, amidst the chaos supreme
I pulled out my scraps and worked some more on
this. Which, I'm not really sure what it is except a big, giant, scrap quilt in progress. A crazy quilt where the quilt isn't crazy, but the quilter is?
I'm blending greens and blues into the right side right now.
I also finished
my wallhanging for the family room. The border is the top of a vintage sheet I wish I could get more of. Alas, I must keep looking. Or-you could keep looking for me! LOL
I like my hearts so much, I made another one
Am I sad, or what? They're like kids. I keep making them, but I'm not really sure which one is my favorite! LOL
Ansje's quilt went into the mail and because it's Easter weekend and it's on its STUDly way, a look at who's hopping into town
That's right. The "E"aster Bunny. Hoping she likes it as much as I did when I was making it.
Today is not only Sew & Tell Friday (click on the link to see the other creatively fabulous projects that got finished this week), but it's Good Friday. Javi went to the Lakes with the snowbirds to help get their place ready for summer fun. C-man had a genetics paper due this week and I now know more about hemophilia than I ever wanted to. He's off to see "The Passion of the Christ" with his youth group tonight and Bean will be spending the night with his other Mimi. Never a dull moment.
May Peace reign in your life.
"Greater love hath no man than this, that a Man laid down His life for His friends."
