I am not sure what happened to this past week. I got home from NY on Sunday evening and went to work on Monday despite the holiday. Too much work to do since only had one day at work the week before. Tuesday and Wednesday I went out after work! 2 days in one week!! Time spent with good friends and good food to top it all off.
Now I am into the usual Saturday chores. A little backed up on the laundry.
One of the items for this weekend is to begin to pull together all the stuff I need to take to quilt camp. I have to figure out what projects I am going to take with me as well as the project that is on tap. I need to cut the strips for that as well. And then there is snack shopping.
I learned 2 things while spending time with the ladies (and Pat!) on Wednesday night. One was that the quality of wide back fabbie is not the same as the "standard" fabric width. Who knew? The other thing is that I really love using straw needles to sew on binding. I need to go get some more since I am afraid I will lose the one that Becky gave me. i can't believe the difference. Only downside is that I need my needle threader close at hand as there is no way that I can thread this needle. I have a hard enough time with a sharp.
I read Becky's blog and her cleaning of the sewing room. Mine is in dire need but will have to wait until after camp and the cleaning lady because it will probably take me a month to get it done. Good job Becky!!
