Today, was my errand day when I also have a long standing date with friends for lunch. It's the birthday of one of the girls on Tuesday, the big 60, (mine is coming next month). We bring gifts to the lunch and since I'm a fan of recycling, I searched for a bag in my collection that would fit and a quick decoration to cover up the label.
A few scraps of fusible backed fabric from the bin, a little glitter glue, and a permanent pen.
A little creativeness saves the environment and is always appreciated.
I'm still thinking about getting some quilt projects organized to grab for upcoming retreat days, keeping in mind gift quilts that I may need in the future. This afternoon, I put together a scrappy block that I think will make a happy baby quilt, with polka dots, brights, and tone on tone whites. It's a Jelly roll pattern from the 3 dudes.
The placement of strips is totally random . I think I like the odd shapes created with the whites but not sure yet.
Here in Canada, we've a long weekend and the weather forecast looks splendid. I'm looking forward to a day away with the kayaks and an extra day with hubby around (even if he golfs).
