I'll start us off with one of my favorite ORANGE photos:
The photo was taken last year at the CCLQ @ The Bluff Quilt Retreat. We were treated to glorious nightly sunsets overlooking the shores of Lake Ontario. Oh, how I would love to visit, again!!
SUNDAY was a quiet day. It was mainly spent icing and elevating my foot. I did venture up to the sewing room long enough to do THIS prep work:
On MONDAY, after Knit Group, I grabbed some sushi from Asian Harbor in Mebane and came home to see if I could sew. HERE is how far I got... star points. Period. End of sewing:
What about seahorses for the center???
TUESDAY was my birthday, so I slept late and lounged around the house until... I got a text from a friend asking for help. Off I went and THIS was in the mailbox when I returned:
Pin Cushion Swap, anyone???
By the time I was finished photographing and sending thanks to my swap partner, DH was home and ready to head out for my birthday dinner at Tripp's in Durham. Hot Fudge Cake for dessert. YUM!!!
Thank you, again, to Janet over at Rogue Quilter blog.
On WEDNESDAY, I mailed out these QOV Block Drive blocks for my friend AlyciaQuilts out in Colorado:
On the way to Mebane Knights for my birthday celebration with The Knit Girls. Fun, fun!!! Thanks, ladies.
THURSDAY is the day that I attend my weekly Quilt Group meeting. This week was at Ella's and there was a surprise waiting for me:
This beautiful hand beaded bracelet was made by my friend, Jean. It's a House Divided Bracelet... RED for NC State and BLUE for Carolina. State for DS1 and UNC for DS2!! Such a thoughtful gift.
Thank you, Jean!!
FRIDAY turned out to be a knitting day (since my friend, Kim, was off work today.) I putzed around the house during most of the afternoon, but did get that ONE Maverick Star in ORANGE done... when I was SUPPOSED to be packing projects for Quilt Camp:
It's SATURDAY and that means that it's time for Angela's LINK PARTY over on the So Scrappy blog.
Today is my monthly Quilt Bee meeting. We will be back at Ella's (since her house was already clean from Thursday!!)
The afternoon will be spent packing for Quilt Camp and the evening is all for DS2's FIRST jazz performance with the UNC Jazz Band!!! Should be AWESOME!!! (I'll try to add an update before leaving for Quilt Camp tomorrow. No promises, though.)
Until next time...
