Awwh it is Monday. That means I had a whole weekend to get things done. Ha... Ha ha ha.
My mom is still up here so I spent much of my time with my family. I think she got more done while visiting me then I finished.
I worked on my Embroidery Quilt Along blocks.
I have been having the worse luck with this quilt along. It is all me not the quilt along. First I messed up cutting my first cut, so I order another fat quarter of that print. Then for some strange reason I cut 5 inch blocks instead of 5 1/2 and even pressed the interfacing on the back. Luckily I had extra interfacing and I made the little bit of the extra background fabric work for me. Then my machine decided to go crazy and have major tension issues. I took it all apart and finished those blocks above.
I also decided I wasn't happy with this fabric that had chosen for my kaleidoscope quilt along.
So I went and got this.
So much for using from the stash. It is fresh linens by fig tree. I think it will make me a lot more happy. I will just keep saving the nautical fabric for something else.
Another interesting thing about today is the weather. The weather has been so strange here in Northern California. This afternoon for lunch it was 87, then by 3:30pm it was 94, then when I went outside for pictures it was some what sunny still, but by the time I went back in it looked like this.
It was windy and getting cold.
My roses sure like this weird weather.
And so does my magnolia tree (first time it has bloomed)
However, I am not sure how I am feeling about it.
Hope you all had a great Monday. I am doing something fun with my b-day present tomorrow. I will take lots of pictures and tell you all about it tomorrow.
Oh yeah by the way. I got the last of my b-day loot yesterday. My mother in law got me two presents.
Do you see that underneath the book. Yep that is a Moda bella solids card. I had so much fun playing with it. Now I want more solids.
Sorry for any odd lighting in the photos, the weather sure was weird while I was taking these pictures.
