Having fun in the sun

Retired work

Thinking about retiring?   I recommend it!  This is how I spent my Thursday.  I thought I wanted to get into the studio to quilt but somewhere on the way I was sidetracked by sunshine and 77F temps, and quality reading.  Oh, and a couple of peppermint patties. Angel


So, today, Friday, I got another row quilted on the Cats quilt prior to getting in another couple hours of quality reading time. 


Feb color palette

I did take out a little time to begin work on Vicki’s color palette challenge for February.  Aren’t the colors luscious?  So I pulled these fabrics but I am not sure what I will be doing with them.


iPad cover 1

Except that they will probably be the outside for an iPad cover.  This is a double thickness of a semi-stiff stabelizer.  I have drawn the outline of the iPad, with an inch included for the fold, and than an additional inch to give me a little room for other stuff.  Now all I have to do is come up with a design for the quilt: I can’t cut into the fabric until I know what I need. 

I hope to get back to the quilting on Cats either Saturday or Sunday.  I have three more rows and then a little fixing (filling the empty spaces I missed on the way down) and then it will be time to cut the fabric for the binding.  I got a great stripe that I think will finish this cute quilt off great.

Have a great weekend and come back and visit again.

How nice to sit in the sunshine and read! Great fabrics for that cover you are going to make...can't wait to see it finished.

I am quite jealous of your 77*...although we have had some beautiful sunny days here, the wind is cold but the sun feels awesome!
Love your color palette fabrics. I'm making small, doable projects for this challenge. Figuring out exactly what to make may be the challenge. :)
Enjoy your sun!

Wow! We didn't get quite that warm, though it was close! This has been such a mild, mild winter. Have fun working with the Cats!! :)
