Well, I’ll start with Friday because “technically” it is the start of the weekend. It poured down rain all day, and the temps dropped about 30 degrees in 30 minutes……..and I stayed indoors all day long! I took the opportunity to start on a throw-size quilt for my own living room. I found the fabrics in Waco at Tomorrow’s Quilts. I have never made a quilt from start to finish, so I’ll keep you posted if you stay with me long enough! The fabric is Rouenneries by French General made by Moda. This is only a fraction of the entire line of fabrics, but I chose these colors because they match the colors of my couch in the living room. The quilt is made with a variation of the “Churn Dash Block”. If you are a quilter, and want to know more, feel free to message me.
These 7 blocks represent the 7 materials used in the quilt. There are 25 blocks total, and I’ve completed 10 of them. Like I said, it will take awhile, but I plan to work on it a little here and a little there.
The continual rain on Friday caused Allyson’s soccer game to be postponed until tonight. WOOHOO! A free night at home, and a Friday night, too! What a great deal! We stayed by the fire and enjoyed the evening at home. I can’t tell you how glad I was to not have to sit in the freezing rain for a soccer game!
On Saturday evening, we had a Semi-Formal dance at the high school. I had the privelege of chaperoning and cleaning up……..much to the dismay of my daughters! (well, one of them in particular) It was a beautiful evening and they looked fabulous — enjoy the pics! Other than being super-duper tired on Sunday, it was a great weekend. My body is certainly not used to being up until 1 am! Oh, the life of teenagers!
Allyson’s hair turned out so pretty. I fixed it myself, and I really think she liked it…….it even stayed curled for most of Sunday, too! Just couldn’t resist showing a photo of these gorgeous ringlets!
