A Day of Sewing With A Friend - ohhhh it feels so good!

Today I will spend at a friend's house on a mini retreat sewing all day long!  It feels good to be looking forward to something like this. 

After spending a couple of nights in the hospital with my mom it will be good to be sewing again.  And not worrying about how Dutch is doing when I am away.  Yes, this will be good and I am glad for it.

Yesterday I received Dutch's pawprint from my vet so I know his ashes will be coming in a week or so.  It brought a few tears to my eyes for sure. 

Off to get ready and pack my stuff up.
Thanks to the help of my good friend Paula, I was able to complete all but two of the blocks for the BQ quilt today.  It is awesome!  I am totally in love with this pattern and these fabrics.  They are batiks from the Laundry Basket Batiks from Moda and are in the Sweet 16 and Believe groupings.  They are perfectly marvleous. 
I see that they do not photograph as good as they look.  In person the colors are perfectly blended with maroons, greens, browns and golds.  I am so sorry it does not look as good here.  Just take my word for it.  Paula is not keen on batiks but she fell in love with this one!
Like an Indian Giver, I will give the quilt top as a present to the person for whom it was intended and then take it back to complete the quilting.  It will be just wonderful!


  1. It looks great! Have fun sewing...you deserve the sewing time.

  2. Love the fabrics and the design. Beautiful quilt. Glad you are quilting again.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
