Weekend Report

I didn't get a whole lot done.  *hangs head in shame*

It was a lazy weekend and we finally enjoyed some RAIN!  I think we got 2 inches at final count.  Normally by this time of year we have had around 6 inches.  So any rain right now is good rain.

Saturday I managed to work on two projects that I hadn't even planned to make.  The first one is a little quilt from the leftovers from my Witch's Boot.  I am making it for a friend for her birthday.  Right now its only 20" square.  I'm thinking it needs a small 1" beige border followed by a 1/2" orange and a 3" black border to finish it off.

Then from leftover ends from all the 60 degree triangles I've been cutting, I made this little 16" top.  I am thinking a premie quilt maybe.  The ends had so much left that it just seemed a waste to throw them away.

I don't know what it is but I just didn't feel like working on anything else this weekend.  And it's not like I don't have stuff to work on.  I have sample quilts and swap blocks that need to be completed.  My lack of "git r dun" attitude might have something to do with the state of my quilting room  I think.  It looks like it's been ransacked.  Which means its probably time to do a little tidying up.  But that'll have to wait till after I get back from quilt retreat this weekend.

I don't know, I would say you accomplished all that you needed to for the weekend. Sometimes, being lazy is what our bodies really need. Besides if you are going to a quilting retreat - you are needing the rest! If your retreats are like the ones I go to, there is a ton of sewing and not too much sleeping!!

Both little quilts are so cute! Sometimes thats all we need to do is a little quilt and get the feeling of accomplishment.
Cleaning the sewing room will give me the same feeling but it isn't as fun! LOL
