Another weekend has come and gone, but this week I’ve got no complaints as that means that we are now just 3 days from heading to Hilton Head. Woo hoo!
Saturday was a busy day … I spent the morning finalizing our trip plans, making hotel reservations for our stops along the way, and updating the maps on our GPS. I also cleaned the hardwood floors … they needed it badly, and I certainly wouldn’t be able to leave with them like that. I spent the afternoon quilting, but I spent my evening working on my next quilting project … a grandmother’s flower garden. Yes, I’m joining the hexie craze! And yes, I’m a little late to the party. But better late than never, right? I’ve always wanted a portable project, to take on our trips, etc. and I think this will fit the bill. I ordered hexagon papers and cut my fabric (I’m using leftover fabrics from other projects, mostly Kansas Troubles fabrics). I need to find some kind of portable storage container as I’m planning on taking this with me when we leave … I am hoping that I can work on it while we’re in the car, but if I can’t, I will have something to do at night in our hotel room. Thankfully someone from the Celebrate Hand Quilting Facebook group came to my rescue – again. I found just what will fit the bill … on sale at JoAnn’s. DH will be out running errands today and has graciously agreed to take a side trip to JoAnn’s … I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: he’s a keeper!
Sunday was a slower day. After church, I did a little more quilting and just took it easy … a nice way to end the weekend.
Have a marvelous Monday!
