One Busy Weekend = one unproductive week

It has been a bit quiet around here. All with good reason. Let me give you a quick look at my weekend. Let's just start by saying it was Randall's sister's wedding weekend.

So the weekend started with my dear husband, Randall, and I showing his New York family a different side of California.

We started at Bodega Bay.

They drove 45 minutes up to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve.

Where I found this awesome log.

Attended a Rehearsal Dinner.

Pizza from the rehersal dinner

Watched his sister get married. It was a very lovely wedding.

Noelle's Wedding

Went on a wine tour.

Wine Tasting

After all of this and a couple days to recover I was able to finish putting the last border on my geese in the park quilt.

I also started cutting the fabric for a new quilt.

Starting a new project

And ordered the most amazing quilt kit from fig tree quilts called Halloween Pops (that counts as progress right? - ignore that question). I so can't wait for this to come in the mail.

I do have a question though. Which do you think is better?

I have just enough goose zag blocks to make one row across the backing of the quilt. (Take a moment to notice the dog that photo bombed the picture).

Or make a couple pillows to go with the geese in the park quilt.

goose-zag blocks into a pillow?

Hmm hard choice there... I really do need some input which to do. I keep going back and forth.

  4. OOh that pizza looks so good :D. I love your Geese in the Park quilt. The colors are so nice! That is a tough choice about those extra blocks...I think I would go with pillows!

  5. I love your quilt and the quilt you bought looks amazing. I would make pillows with the extra blocks.
