A perfect weekend would have ended in the Eagles winning the Super Bowl but that was not to be. Both teams played great but KC won in the end. I've no complaints because I was entertained by a fun season and the SB game itself was exciting and fun to watch with Chris and some friends. It was all good and now I have my Sunday's back for a few months.
In other news, do you remember my quilts for Paula Nadelstern's new fabric line? You can see them here and here. Well the fabrics are now in the shop and Benartex has published the Lookbook. The other quilts in the Lookbook are spectacular! Please check them out. If you are interested in the fabrics, they are in several online stores and you can find them by searching "Needle Stars Benartex". I found the best price at Hancock's of Paducah. I'm not affiliated, I just spent some time shopping around.
I honestly didn't get a lot accomplished this weekend. But I did get one more lap quilt top made and another cut out and ready to sew. Each one takes a little more than an hour, start to finish, if I don't cut the fabric wrong.
I didn't practice my botanical quilting at all! I must rectify that soon.
Instead of sewing or quilting Saturday we picked up the last load of wood from Becky's, Chris chopped it and I stacked it. This whole pile is only 1 tree! It's probably about a third of what we will use in a winter so we still have lots of work to do to find and harvest more wood. This particular tree fell during Thanksgiving weekend and we were happy to get it.
Saturday I had done my normal exercise, hauled woods with Chris and then stacked wood. After that all I wanted to do was sit in my chair and crochet and that's exactly what happened. I'm 4 balls in on this blanket and have 3 to go.
