I love weekends part 2

This was our last weekend home before the kickoff to the summer Highland games. I spend it doing the things I love with those I love. I look forward to our travels this summer and have portable projects to take. I am learning how to use our GoPro for video this summer.

I practiced old patterns I knew and added the top one called Viaduct. I sent it to my block swap partner along with this block.

After realizing I made a terrible cutting mistake, guess which block, I cant see the book well lying flat with these bifocals. It is Tula Pinks City Sampler. I am on block 53 and I found my cook book stand. Magic, I can see without destroying the book by getting it spiral bound. And without spending even more money! Tip for the day why spend money when you have these things on hand?

Speaking of having on hand, I  have twin grand daughters. I found out they needed some summer clothes. I happened to have patterns the right size that a friend gave me , plus some of my own from when my daughter was  young, the cutest little girl fabric and a serger fresh out of the shop! I can’t believe it I made clothes!!! All my sewing lessons in 4H paid off because I felt like I knew what I was doing. It helps having sewing and sergering machines that are in good shape.

I love how this sampler stitch is turning out, I spent time here too. It is my quilt and the tutorial is listed as woven ribbons on how to piece it, link on tutorial page. I found that I can take cheap online classes at iquilt.com. The Judy Madsen class is there as well as Gwen Marsten. I will save my 150 for the class I wanted to take at AQS, go to the show in Grand I am ending this post where I was enjoying my time …. outside in my fairy garden. I have a patio and a smoke free zone now that the neighbors all quit. It was a pleasant 70 degrees.

I added 2 more mini plants, scotch moss and hens n chicks. Now to watch it grow and find another house or two. I have 2 more raised bed to add to as the plants grow. I will have a village. I love miniatures so much.
