Lots of exciting things going on this coming weekend. I know two little girls that will be having a monumental birthday this weekend. More about that tomorrow. Saturday at the shop is our first Friendship Sit ‘n Sew group with myself and Pat, a quilter and fellow co-worker. Quilters can come and exchange strips, sit and sew or work on some of the projects From Edyta Sitar‘s new book Friendship Strips and Scraps. I think it should be a super fun day! I will be working on the quilt that graces the cover of Edyta’s new book. I was a little worried about gathering fabric for it because I have such a measly fabric stash. I think I will share that with you soon. I just love the way Edyta mixes her fabric up. I happened to mention it to Edyta and she offered to bring a kit for that quilt up to the shop. I was like “YES” that would be more than wonderful!! I think some of the other ladies jumped on board and bought kits too.
See the little white plug that now has an “x” marked on it, that was inserted backwards. We had no idea which way was the front of the plug or that it would matter. I had Jamie mark the x just in case, so I know for future reference. I just felt sooooo bad that Jamie drove back to my house. I’m so glad it was nothing. Jamie was even more relieved. He thought it was something very serious. He said the drive was well worth it. He is so sweet. While Jamie was here we went over a few more maintenance items. He also helped me pick out some threads out off a thread chart, that way I have an idea of what to order. The tread chart has hundreds of thread colors! I would order them all if I could, but that’s obviously not practical. Unfortunately, no time to really practice after Jamie left because I had to take the girls to dance.
