A little behind

I didn’t get around to posting last week because I was traveling so let me try to catch up now.

Last Friday I flew to Maryland to spend a few days with my niece and to attend her baby shower. As you may recall from my last post she had sent me a bundle of pink & gray fat quarters they wanted turned into a quilt (yes, she’s having a girl!). It only took me a few days to complete that project so I also made her a few receiving blankets and an elephant tag toy – you can read about that here.

Anytime I go back to Md I always hunt down some good crabs and I was not disappointed this time! We went to a restaurant called Fifer’s in Fort Smallwood.

The Baby Shower was on Sunday…they had it at their house and handled all the details. I helped them pickup the cake and balloons that morning and we finalized all the food & decorations. I’ll spare you the hundreds of pictures and just show a few – they’ve already picked out her name too: Campbell Elizabeth

What a creative way to ‘wrap’ the gift!

I flew home Monday afternoon and haven’t spent much time in my sewing room but I did get a little bit done. I finally got around to completing the August Honey Pot Bee block and since I was on a roll I did September too!

Since I got the September one done so early, there’s a second block option for Sept that I may make as well  😉

I also put this top together…I had to set it aside in my “Tops” box (waiting to be basted, quilted & finished) so I can work on a few commissioned projects.

I picked up a new commissioned job to do quilting & binding on a cross stitch blanket (pictures next week) and I finally got my client to pick out backing fabric for the Clemson tshirt quilt. I had to order it online so it should be here early next week.

I’ve been watching the US Open for the last week…lots of great stories but my highlights are Roger & Rafa (how do they continue to play at that level?!!)  and all the US Ladies that are doing so well!

And I’m looking forward to another season of NFL…my team, the Redskins, isn’t predicted to do very well so as usual I’ll cheer on my back up team, the Patriots!

 

That’s about it for now…let me know what you’ve been working on!
