One busy weekend

As the weekend comes to an end, I like to take a moment to think of all the things I accomplished and everything that did not get done.

Well lets start with the good.

3x6 bee blocks

I finished all my blocks for the 3 x 6 bee and I got everything into the mail by Saturday. Nothing like procrastinating.

I used a string block off set inside a square and I love it! I am actually going to make a whole lap quilt from these blocks. I even picked up some more fabric in my color way (like I need more fabric)

I also made it to the monthly meeting of the Sacramento Modern Quilt Guild. Some very lovely pictures went up today. As always very inspirational work.

We also spent a lot of time with family. Pictures would have been a good idea.

Today we went to a winery in Sonoma. Here is Suzie enjoying our trip.


I was playing with my camera in manual mode for a bit. I am really out of practice from when I used to do black and white photography. I guess it is just going to take a bunch more practice.

Now on to the bad.

Let's start with scraps gone bad.

Scrap Quilting gone bad

String quilt blocks means you need string and this is the results of searching my scrap basket for it.

Also all the time spent with family meant that I didn't get my cleaning done this weekend or laundry. Wow, I just realized I don't have clean pants for next week... I am off to take care of that!
