I've spent my quilting time this weekend cutting fabric. I have depleted my stash by nearly 12 yards of fabric. I've cut:
* 60 - 8x8 inch squares for a swap using up 3 yards of fabric
* 50 – 2.5 inch strips that were cut into half strips for another swap using up 3.5 yards of fabric
* 270 nickel squares for gifts at the quilt gathering I’m going to next weekend using up 5.25 yards of fabric
This morning I cut all the pieces I need for my 365 Challenge quilt.
My studio is in a little bit of disarray as I am getting ready to spend next weekend with 17 members of one of my on-line groups. I have some gifts to wrap. Swaps to get in the mail. Projects to pack to bring along next week. I am so ready for a few days off. I've spent more hours working lately than I care to remember or admit to.
Yesterday was a beautiful day here in New England. DH and I walked around downtown Dover and ate lunch on the deck of one of the restaurants. We poked around in a couple of the shops that carry antique furniture and found these wood double folding chairs. How cool! We bought two of them. We are going to paint one of them in Red Sox red and the other in New England Patriots blue. We may try to find decals to put on them too. They are cool. I can't wait to refinish them. They will be a neat addition to the sports room we'll have some day soon.
