Happy Saturday

Hello fellow quilting buddies!  I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  Tomorrow, I will be spending all day in the car with my son.  We’re headed home to Texas after a week in Missouri with mom and Gene.  Hopefully we can get there in 12 hours or so.  Doesn’t that sound like so much fun?  I would rather be quilting but I’ll have to wait one more day.

I’ll be too tired to post anything tomorrow but I’ll be back Monday.  After all, I do have to announce the winner of our current giveaway for the OLFA Circle Cutter.  I’m also going to share my massive list of things that have to be finished before I return to Missouri in July.  Yikes…my list is terribly scary.

Mom tried to give me a crash course in paper piecing today.  It went pretty good but I’m still not sure I like it.  I’ll have to keep practicing and see if I get any better.  Who knows…maybe I’ll end up liking it.

Here’s a look at what I was working on…
I want to share a picture I took a couple weeks ago.  I thought this was such a pretty flower.  Little did I know it’s actually considered a weed.  It’s called Thistle.  Don’t you love the matching butterfly?

Well, it’s about time for me to hit the hay.  I have a long day ahead of me tomorrow.  One thing’s for sure, I know I won’t fall asleep while I’m driving.  My son will talk nonstop the whole way home.  Maybe I should’ve invested in ear plugs….

  1. Interesting fabrics in your PP project . The Thistle is so pretty and a great photo with the butterfly ,besides who says that a weed can’t be beautiful 😉 Enjoy your trip.

  2. I like the colors for your PP project. Such a pretty butterfly. I’ve always loved thistles. I learned about them when I was very young because they are what Eeyore (from Winnie the Pooh) eats!!

  3. I’ve played around with paper piecing a few times and I have a love/hate relationship with it. I guess it all depends on the design.

    I hope you and your Son are having a great time on your road trip back home. My Son (13) is a chatter box in the car too. That’s where we have our most serious talks about life. It’s easier for him if I don’t make eye contact lol.

  4. Love the fabrics in your PPing project. The ‘weed’ is pretty and lucky you to have a camera handy when the butterfly landed.
    Have a safe and fun drive and we’ll catch you on the flip side after you’ve caught your breath.
