Guilt free…?

There was no stitching for me yesterday…I had laundry to do…AGAIN!  What’s with all the dirty clothes!??  Sheeesh!! I guess at home I don’t really notice ‘doing’ laundry…I just do it in between ‘things’.  So while the clothes were going through the different cycles I started a book…and couldn’t get my nose out of it!  I spent the rest of the day in a lawn chair reading….Now back home I would NEVER do this…guess this is what “holidaying” is all about!!  Guilt free…doing WHATEVER you want to do…within reason of course!

I even took yesterday off from Blogging!!  Let’s blame it on the Yoga…I have to be there by 8:15am and I was too tired the night to write my post…

Let’s get back to quilting~ The Clubhouse was a hive of activity on Wednesday…Gwen has completely finished…

   P1110399

her wall hanging…she is having it professionally quilted when she gets home.  I wasn’t able to get the name or the designer for you as Gwen didn’t bring the pattern with her…sorry!  But one things for sure, it is SPECTACULAR!!

P1110401

Isn’t this pretty?  I think Anne from Alberta made this….

P1110404

She also made this one…Anne is one busy quilter and LOVES batiks.

Anne flew home for a funeral and brought back a bunch of her quilts… we just found out that we are having a quilt show in the main clubhouse in February!  Got to get busy!!

Penny started off making herself a table runner for Spring and ended up…

And look at what Penny started to do…she hauled the Clubhouse Light Box out and is tracing her stitchery pattern onto cotton…she will probably have it finished by next Wednesday!

P1110591

While we were busy working…the UPS man dropped this off for ME!!  How sweet of him!!

P1110423

I had ordered 3 yards of black wool  and a yard of brown for my Settler’s Pride Quilt!  I was thrilled with the wool…the PERFECT weight!!  Not too heavy and not too light…JUST RIGHT!! 

P1110424

And Goldilocks lived happily ever after!! 

(I ordered the wool from Dorr’s Wool…it’s called Wool Coating- perfect for Penny Rugs and runners…and a great price!  Check it out!)

Have a Super Saturday and Happy Quilting!~P

I love dorr wool, wish I could get up there.
I like seeing it in person and fun to go through their bins.

I am taking a day off too, I need a brain break, so hitting the prims and antique barn.
