It's finally Friday! Woohoo!! As you read this, I'm in Atlanta laying siege to the IKEA store - or attending the premier of Courageous, if it's Friday night. But I did manage to get a little bit done this week....
I finished this flimsy, made by Kate Conklin's great "Scattered Showers" pattern. I had six fat quarters of Anthology fabrics that I picked up in Virginia, and some Kona Ash. I think it makes a nice pairing!
I also started a simple Christmas quilt, using up some of my monster stash of Christmas fabrics (I think they reproduce when I'm not looking!) This pattern was on Moda Bake Shop last week - called "Road to Tennessee". I've got 1/4 of it done, shown above. Both of these quilts will be part of a silent auction to benefit Lantern Lane Farms, a non-profit run by some friends of ours who provide counseling services. I have to have both done by September 11th - eek! Better get a move on!!
And just because they're cute, I wanted to share these pics with you - - -
Lilli discovered her great-great-grandmother's stereopticon (for those of you who don't know, it's an old-time Viewmaster!) and has been having a ball looking at all the old pictures. She tells me everything she sees in them, and only lets me look after she's finished with one! It's so nice to see her appreciate old things, as well as my iPod!
So that's my whoop whoop for the week! What have you been working on? Do share with the rest of us so we can cheer you on!! Remember, you have until Saturday at midnight to link up....
