Back Again

 006 The view for this week and oh yes, cool weather…ahhhhh!  Yes I’m spoiled and lucky.  It was a whole week of relaxing and not doing much of anything….again, ahhhh!!!!  Golfing and reading for       Mr. P and for me………….. I worked on my Designer BOM’s007 and got all three done including the stem/leaf sections.  Love these sweet blocks.  Kimberly and the girls at Fat Quarter Shop outdid themselves!!!008

Ruthie, one of the gals in my friendship group, gave us all a lesson last week on making these cute mesh bags.  I am working on a couple for The Dots out of Dinosaur Train fabric.  That is the cutest show.  Anyway, I finished adding the top bands and handles and next week Ruthie will show me how to finish them up.009

There was also some time to put the binding on my friend Carol’s watermelon quilt….stinkin’ cute I have to say, and rick rack around the inner border, well again stinkin’ cute!

Yes I am spoiled.  My friend Pat is a hosting a quilt retreat this weekend at her house, so I will be packing up some projects and heading out tomorrow night for a weekend of sewing.  As Mrs. Goodneedle would say, “life is good”!  Off to see what is going on in blogland.  Happy weekend everyone.
