I don't know about you, but I had a great weekend, even though I had to work.
Friday was an extra day off, we were all awarded a wellness day, as a thank you for all the hard work and effort that we have put in, even me who was off work for eight weeks. So I took it on Friday.
I played all day, with my floral scraps, making up blocks and even adding the first sashing strips.
This is how I left them when I went off to prepare dinner. Debbie and her hubby joined us. We had Prawn toasts and spring rolls, followed by chicken and corn soup and Tony's amazing crispy shredded sweet chilli beef.
Debbie brought a HUGE banana cake.
That was a late night, and I thought I might be late for zoom on Saturday.
I wasn't late for zoom, I was awake in plenty of time to grab a cuppa and get logged in.
I spent the morning working on my Lucy Blue EPP project.
It was good to see everyone and I enjoyed myself, listening and chatting until it was time to head off to work.
I added three large blocks and four smaller spacer blocks.
I'm on to the last row!
Then I'll need to go around and add the edge pieces.
Chooky, thank you once again for a great day.
A little while ago I wondered about making it a little bigger, but decided in the end, to stick with original size, it's a good size for hanging in my hall way.
Tony wasn't available for my photo shoot today, so I pegged it on to my quilt hanging rail to get a good picture.
And decided while I was at it, I would change the guard.
I like to change the quilt hanging at the end of the hallway. Some stay for only a few weeks, some stay longer.
This one is a regular, I'm very fond of it.
It sometimes gets used as a table cloth too.
Also today I played in my sewing room pretty much right up to the moment I had to run out of the door for work. LOL
I was determined to get the floral scrapper together and to get the first border on.
And I did it. I had just enough fabric, though there are a few more joins than I would like in some of those longer pieces.
I think I'll add a tiny peeper border (Chooky you've started something.....) before adding another neutral border.
That is a job for tomorrow.
I did think this one might be a donor quilt, but I've fallen in love with it.....
On the whole, I think I had a fantastic weekend.
I hope yours was just as good.
