Plenty of activity going on outside of the sewing room--I've only managed to sew four blocks this week--as a test for the newlywed's quilt. Our older daughter and family are mid-move, their new home is not quite ready with the renovations they are doing (kitchen tile just went down yesterday!), and they have to be out of their current house by tomorrow. Luckily her mother-in-law and her husband have plenty of room for them to stay until it is ready. We've been helping with childcare and had a grand time with the boys yesterday at our house for a few hours. They are in constant motion at 3 and 5, and of course are always in need of snacks. All of us have fingers-crossed for no hiccups in the completion of renovations.
In other news, I was the very lucky winner of JanetO's blogversary giveway--she had to draw three times for an eligible entry. The package arrived with interesting lumps and bumps. Mini was present for the grand unveiling.
...all innocent in her actions. Look at the impossibly tiny binding! See the 6" ruler there to the right of the quilt.
Janet included some very lovely handmade soaps, package of pins, thread and notebook with her lovely card. I'm very thankful to be the new owner of this eensy charm quilt and will treasure it.
I unpacked all the fabric treasure from the Quilt Run and feasted my eyes on all the loot on the cutting table.
Some of the packaged badges the quilt shops gave out, so fun. For completing the Quilt Run we were entered in a Grand Prize drawing but neither of us won. We did get a lovely pair of small scissors at the final shop.
Off to sew now, I have a block to sew for our pizza box block swap due tomorrow, and two baby quilts to finish and turn in. Nothing like the last minute....
