I had a great weekend. Yesterday we attended a 50th Wedding Anniversary Mass and luncheon for friends of ours. On the way home we stopped at a new to me quilt shop. Since I'm still off No Buy until the end of July I couldn't leave without buying some fabric. I found this cute sports print fabric and DH picked out the two coordinating fabrics. Not sure what kind of quilt I will make with them. But I'm sure it will a boy quilt.
I spent the evening finishing my E is for Egg block from Bobby Socks. I stitched this one in a deep green rather than red. I like the color. I used the Presencia Finca thread I bought recently. I love the way the thread handles. It stays soft and silky and lies well on the fabric. Next up is F is for Fairy and I'm going to stitch it with purple thread.
Today was the kind of Sunday I enjoy. Since we went to Mass yesterday we didn't have to go this morning. Instead we stayed home for the day. Our laundry is done and put away. We watched the US Soccer team beat the Mexico team for the Gold Cup. We watched the Red Sox beat the San Diego Chargers. And I finished my Wicked Girlie top, even the binding is sewn and pressed, ready to use. I had to order more backing fabric tonight. That will be here later this week. When I pick up my Pink Infinity quilt in two weeks, I'll drop off this quilt to be quilted. I am so in love with this quilt. I can't wait to get it finished.
I still have photos and stories from last week's retreat to share. I'll try to get that done this week. I know some of you are anxious to hear the stories about the quilters and Sister Theresa!
