Quiet Weekend

After a busy few weeks, I had a lovely quiet weekend, mostly at home.  On Saturday I had lunch in town with Jenni and Mum came to visit later in the afternoon and spent most of yesterday afternoon in the sewing room.

I've been sewing the "Kiss Me" blocks for a while now.  The main blocks are made - next up my least favourite part of quilt-making:  block placement.


The flying geese blocks for one of the borders are ready to be sewn together too.


There was also a little more secret sewing.


See that little silver gizmo in the bottom right-hand corner of the photo?  It's a little music player that my friend Barbara bought me for my birthday - what a fantastic toy it is.  It takes a tiny SD card onto which you load your music and this little thing then vibrates through whatever it's resting on and that provides the volume.  I have no affiliation with this product - I think it's a lot of fun and very clever idea.

The crock pot worked overtime.

Chilli Con Carne
Osso Bucco

At last I'm making some headway with my current Gingham Girls block - don't often feel like sewing at night lately.
Those purple glasses are a little off-centre; just like mine sometimes.

Barbara and I are looking forward to seeing "The Great Gatsby" on Thursday then in June I'm going to see "Jesus Christ Superstar" and Kristen Chenoweth as well as the quilt show with Diann and Lorraine.  Should be a great month.
