Busy weekend. Laura Beth, Nick and Mason arrived Friday night and left today. We had a family meal on Sunday. Yes, turkey and all the things that go with it. We had a lot of fun.
Mason kept us busy. He and Grandpa sat on the couch and practiced whistling. Mason had time to smile for the camera.
It was chilly this weekend. But Mason still likes to go outside. Luckily the family next door doesn't mind if Mason tries out their toys.
Lots of "new" toys next door. Thanks Heidi!
Mason is a busy boy. Nick slowed him up turning him into a "Mason burrito".
In between I relaxed by sewing. This block I finished last week. Just wanted to see what it looked like. Another block for "Jay's" pile.
Mason checked my sewing box. Wore my green thimble. Unrolled several spools of thread. Was fascinated by my orange scissors he couldn't play with!
One of my purchases was a book last week. Yes, I used a coupon!
I found a simple quilt in this book I really liked. A 1936 Kansas City Star pattern called "Flower of Spring". Its alternate name was "Two Lips".
Yes Jay, the gold fabric is the last scrap I found from your box. All the flower blocks have the same orange fabric in the middle of the flowers. I didn't have any orange for that--so I bought 11.5 yards. I think this will be a wonderful long term scrap project for me. The pattern has 54 of these 9" blocks.
My stash accumulations--I think that brings this year's total to 43.5 yards. All good though. I'm enjoying my quilting.
I'm not a "Black Friday" shopper. Nope, you're going to find me inside reading and sewing! Have a great week everyone!~
