First off, thanks to the home team for basically letting me do whatever I wanted to do this weekend. They took me out for Barbecue on Saturday night and then did the grocery shopping for me yesterday morning and made me a big breakfast and a big lunch and every time I asked what I needed to do, they sent me away. I also got a Norman Rockwell plate that I'll show one week for VTT and a card from Rob and a dozen roses and a handmade card from the kid. All was well for the man-mom.
That gave me the time to redo this little quilt. This is a Project Linus quilt that was started by someone else, either the girl scouts or a school group. They drew the Cinderella story and I thought it was so cute. But, there was a block that said Dad Died, which is true to the story, but Linus couldn't risk the quilt getting to a child whose Dad had died, so they were going to scrap it. I took it and after a year and a half, I finally got around to fixing it. It was tied and I took those out, took the sandwich apart, drew a dark cloud over the previous words and wrote "sad days" in the block that had little Cindy crying. Then I quilted the heck out of it and machine bound it (my first machine binding ever!) We washed it yesterday and now it's ready to add to the bag of projects to send back to Linus.
I also got time to work on my hand sewing project. All the squares are finished and this is the layout I picked. I have all the rows assembled and am about to start sewing them together. I decided to go with 36 instead of 42 squares and will use four of the remaining squares in the corners after I add the border. Now, I just have to find something for the border.
And, next weekend, Rob has planned an outing for us to an outdoor quilt show in Boerne (pronounced burney), TX. They have the show arranged around the town at all the little stores and on the square and we're going to see how much trouble we can get into.
Hope your Mother's Day or your Man-mom's day or however you celebrated anything special this weekend was as wonderful. Take care and we'll see ya round the www. Lane
