A Success

Didn't get a ton done this weekend but did get some things done that were on the sewing to do list so that felt great.

I had off on Friday after a little work getaway with the hubs.  We were able to stay overnight and a nice hotel have a great breakfast out and it was snowing here on Friday. So when I got home I did a little of this:

My DH bought them for me a couple of years ago and either we haven't had a lot of snow or timing is off. So nice 4 inches of snow and I had the day off. It was very quiet and one part of the trail, I was the first one on.  That was a nice way to get a work out in.

Saturday I headed to a small quilt show near my house and I did not take any pictures while I was there.  This show has gotten bigger but still is pretty small.  Went to the vendors, saw all the quilts, listened to a lecture on what is Modern Quilting?  and was done in about an hour and a half.  Not many Modern Quilts but still some very beautiful quilts displayed.  I did buy a little fabric but since we are going to quilt retreat next week end I held back a little.  Here are the two pieces I did get.

I loved the little teapots and thought I would make a place mat to use in the kitchen.

Then for actual sewing I was able to get my fabric cut and organized for my bee month of March.  I then made one test block.  I LOVE IT!  I am so excited to see this done.  It will be rainbow colors.  I hope they all turn out this cool.  I still have lots of charms left so I will be able to fill in or exchange out whatever I need.

Here is hoping I get a little more done this week to prep for the sewing retreat next weekend!  I have a list and here's to not getting side tracked by other things!

Happy Sewing.  Linking up to Let's get Acquainted blog meet which is being hosted by Better off Thread.  There is lots of quilty inspiration over there!

Happy Sewing this week.
