Last weekend, I managed to finish this little baby boy's quilt. I had purchased this fabric at a quilt shop close out with the intent to make 2 Yellow Brick Road quilts. I cut out both, but got one top made and didn't care for it. The fabric is cute, but I just don't think I like the YBR pattern. I like seeing a design when I look at a quilt. That is unless it's a fabulous scrap quilt, that's different, then there are so many fabrics to dazzle you, you don't need much else. Well anyway, I took the pieces of the top that wasn't finished and added the yellow stars and stripe border. The stripe border was left overs from the placemats I made my staff for Christmas last year! It worked out well, if I would have found that before I made the stars, I might have matched it a little better.
After that was finished, I had to get rid of that mini patch basket bug that I caught from Darlene, and Lorraine and all of the others. I made 3 for little prezzies. They are so much fun to make, I want to make more. I want to make myself one for my desk at work, to put note pads and staple puller and stuff like that.
arrive and a most unexpected gift from my good friend Syl!!
Look at this pumpkin stack. Syl called it a big pumpkin pincushion! LOL, she is so sweet, what a lovely surprise. The best part of this gift was hearing her voice when I called to thank her! This lady is a dear and she makes some beautiful quilts, she just won some ribbons, I'm not surprized at all. We talked about her starting a blog. I think she might!!! Come on Syl, join the fun! Here is a picture of Syl and her quilt that we suprized her with at retreat last year!So are you still here? Good, I've got a lot to be excited about, I'm packing and planning to leave tomorrow morning to go down the coast to a mini quilting retreat. I will drive down to Aromas and meet up with Holly, we'll trek on down further and meet up with Deb and Pam. I can't wait. I can't stop grinning, we are going to have some fun!! I'm so looking forward to this gettaway!
I was making a list of stuff while at work today, and the list went something like this...

Other Items to Pack: Pillow
Do you see what I see? How does happen, why am I perpetually plagued by P's??? Well to celebrate my 100th post I thought it would be fitting to offer this perfectly precious 30's fat quarter packet to a random commenter. Yes, they are purple! I'm so sorry the pictures are blurry. They are cute, honest! and I'm not even gonna make you count the p's in this post! I'll pick a name when I get home on Sunday nite.
Hope your weekend is a fun one! xomar
