I actually got a lot of sewing in this past weekend.
We were supposed to go to California to spend the weekend at my in-laws' condo. Instead Clara got sick. Then I got sick. Then Brent. Then his dad.
This weekend was doomed from the start.
But, it ended up being a blessing disguised as a vomit inducing flu bug. I not only got a three day stay-cation, I got a free weekend. FREE! One I thought would be spent lounging in the cool Oceanside air. Spent reading on the porch watching the waves against the pier. One away from home where I would ignore the pending laundry and sewing and errands that would inevitably cause me stress on the ride home.
I got all that finished and more.
I even HAND STITCHED binding on Miss Maze's Peacock Elephant Quilt. For those of you who don't know me well, binding is my arch nemesis. I hate it. With a passion. I'm pretty sure it hates me back. It's a mutual hatred.
Anyway, my sister stopped by, so I had someone to hold it up for pictures:
We can count this as finish number two for the year! Woot! Woot!
The white area is FMQ with swirls and the Lark is quilted with organic waves. I quilted just off the seams for the rest of the quilt.
I am going to link this up at my friend Nancy's blog, Owen's Olivia. She recently completed her very first quilt EVER and is holding a linky party for people to share some of their favorite quilts. Personally, I think she's just nosey :) but if you've completed a quilt ever (which I know most of you have) please link up! She would love the support and it won't take much time!
