Sandwiched this quilt.
Decided that stippling wasn't the right style of quilting for the graphic design of the quilt. So I ripped one bobbin's worth of stitching out if the quilt. It was very time consuming. Now I am stitching in the ditch, and I am not good at it.
Threw a birthday party for my sister.
Which called for some home made banners (paper and yarn) with the help of my oldest.
My brother and my other sister stayed overnight.
Went to a Labor Day party at my sister's place. Took the kids swimming and enjoyed hanging out with my family.
Made a pair of pajama pants for Zach.
My fear of sewing clothing is decreasing. I actually followed a pattern.
And some earrings. Sulu inspired, for sure.
And I worked on quilting my quilt.
And I worked on quilting my quilt.
What did you do?
Wow! You rock with accomplishments this weekend! Everything looks great. Really like the jewelry!
We went to picnics and just relaxed. I'm afraid I didn't create a thing.... mmmm. back on that tonight!
Love those PJ pants! Too cute!
As for me, I made MY FIRST QUILT!!!! YAY!!!!!!!
Those PJ pants are way CUTE!! love the necklace and earrings too!!
Holy Cow! You were a busy gal! Love the jewelry. I went to my first real bead store over the weekend - WOW. I think I might be hooked. I tried to control myself and only get stuff for specific projects. But WOW.
Aren't you ever productive?! Geesh, lady!
Your quilt is looking great. That stinks you had to rip out the stippling.
I also threw a party this weekend. A surprise 40th anniversary party for my parents.
(I had to stitch in the ditch last week and wasn't very good either.)
You put me to shame!
We did a nice road trip to the cape and managed to do some crafting... but nothing like you!
Sorry to hear you had to rip out all those stitches. boo hoo. Looks terrific though.
And wow, look at those beads.
A new hobby in the making?
You far surpassed me in accomplishments this weekend! I agree on the stippling -- I'll bet you'll be much happier with straight quilting. If stitch-in-the-ditch is too hard and it's not too late, you could try 1/4" quilting -- that might look good too!
Well, I guess you did get lots done. I did no crafting, but some organizing of letters.
Wow, it sounds like you had a pretty busy weekend!
I read a book, went on a dinner date with my husband, took a few walks, took some photos... Obviously my weekend was not very busy:) (I do have an excuse though, because it was a bit too hot to do much of anything outside.)
Wow - what an action packed weekend!! Sounds like a marvellous time was had by all! Love the quilt!
Quilt is a beauty---VERY Gee's Bend! I love those! so cudos!
Um, I'm embarrassed to tell you what I did when I read all of the amazing things you have done this weekend!
I think you are still my hero! My weekend of cooking and wandering around with husband and dog in tow pale in comparison to your adventures.
Thank you for sharing and inspiring!
okay.first i'm catching my breathe from reading about YOUR weekend!
worked on two quilts.
lounged by the pool.
WOW! way to go on all of your accomplishments! i make my children flannel pants...they are the best....and your little guys tootsies....ADORABLE!
you got a lot done!
I checked my blog this morning and saw that you left a comment!! I'm so HONORED! I LOVE your blog and I'm always checking up on you to see what you are working on. You are my quilting inspiration! :) You made my day!
Boy, I sure wish you would do something on these holiday weekends instead of getting nothing accomplished. Geeesh!!!
You amaze me!! The quilts look beautiful! The pants are cute! And throwing a party?!?!? You are a crazy woman!!
Oh, I forgot.....the jewelry is spectacular!!
Wow! Everything looks fabulous. I wish I could say I have been productive. I have been very busy, but I have no idea what I have been doing, as I have nothing to show for my efforts... The earrings are so pretty!
Yeesh! Are you that productive every weekend??? I'm totally impressed and in awe...
Wow! You certainly accomplished a lot. Your projects all look great! My biggest accomplishments were finishing drawing a fake boardwalk onto a 140 foot roll of paper and finishing my scarf.
I attended the birthday party (a fine party, thank you), went camping, cleaned, finished the baby afghan, cooked and grilled, hosted a Labor day event.
And I got the worst case of poison ivy ever. My fingers keep growing purpler and bigger (one is about as chubby as dad's). No more cooking or cleaning for me this week. The water hurts.
Yay! You're working with beads!!! They're so much fun, right? I can't believe how productive you've been, and in so many different ways. I'm glad to see that you're starting to try patters - I can't imagine that you of all people would have any trouble with them.
