Weekend Catch-Up

It's beautiful here in Michigan this weekend and I hope your weekend is going well. Yesterday was Flower Day at the Farmer's Market. Me, not having a green thumb (but a calloused quilting one) just observed. Lots of money and flora changed hands.I'll make my purchase later this week, some herbs for the porch planter. That's as much gardening as I do.

Gibby is doing very, very well. He sends you all his thanks for the good will.

Polly is in New York City with the East Coast granddaughters. They saw this last night.I got a report this morning that all the girls LOVED it.

After unpacking over 50 pieces of luggage (dozens and dozens of quilts and rugs for the trunk show and lots of kits for the classes) from Mackinac Island, I found that we have a couple of kits left over. I have one Flying Free kit.....
and one kit for the Michigan pillow workshop....Email me here is you are interested.

After the market yesterday, Bill and I basted a quilt. It went splendidly. Sorry, I can't show you the whole quilt, but this is a small part of it.This is going to be the 2012 Block of The Month for Kansas City Star Newspaper. We're pretty excited about that. Once it has been in the paper, it will be published as a book by Kansas City Star.

All of you who have asked about my quilt that I worked on last summer with the berries..... well, that one is getting very close to it's publication date and we'll be showing that soon.


P.S. The Flying Free kit is now gone. Thanks!!!

P. P. S. The pillow kit is gone too. Thanks again!

I am still debating on what to make with my jelly roll. I do want to do something americana though and have an idea.

Your weekend sounds lovely. Love your block for the BOM - will definitely get the book. I love their books! Guess I'll have to be patient a little longer waiting for the berry quilt! :)
