The other day I found myself with a free afternoon. What was I going to do? Well, to be honest there were a couple of things that I could have done, but I chose to sew instead! It was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and the temperature was finally warm enough to go out and sew in my Summer Palace ( I first talked about my Summer Palace here, and then again here, and probably a few other places sprinkled around my bog). The weather has been unusually cold and wet so far this Spring. I have a few flowers planted, but none in front of the Palace yet! Yikes! I have not been able to get excited about buying and planting flowers in such yucky weather. In fact, I had thought about going out today and purchasing some but we had a tornado watch this morning, and it looks like it can rain again. :( That quickly put a damper on those plans today!
Anyway, I guess I had better get back to what I am really writing about today! I got my little Featherweight sewing machine all set up in the Palace and started to sew away on a project that has to be kept a secret right now so you won't be seeing this work in progress. You never know who is going to read your blog and this is a gift for someone. I am making the quilt top and someone else is going to do the quilting. I will show you the finished top at a later date, but I won't be showing this work in progress as I would hate for a surprise to be ruined!
Travel Talk With Marilyn and this one. The cupcakes were a lot of fun to make and eat of course! I have three of these little Alien guys that hang out on my desk and they always make me smile when I look at them. They make great office mates! :)
Yesterday at guild we had a guest speaker, Caron Carlson come. In the afternoon she gave a class on hand piecing an Orange Peel quit. Stay tuned for more on that topic soon...and I can actually show you that one too! :)
What a Sweet Retreat!
