With our friends here my schedule is totally out of whack....in a good way. I finally have someone to play Cribbage and Backgammon with in the evenings, and I have someone to sew with. This week I've also had a few errands with Mom. So there hasn't been much sewing or crochet.
I'm cool with it because I'm having a great time. But I will show you what we are working on between other activities.
What I want to be working on is the Antelope Canyon quilt but the blue fabric is still processing. I didn't want to start anything big so I pulled out some fat quarters to make some mastectomy drain bags. I had a roll of grosgrain ribbon that I was able to cut for half the straps. I'll get started sewing these today before Laura and I head to happy hour with friends.
Laura and Ian come here often enough (during non-lockdown times) that they leave some clothes and things behind. I had totally forgotten that the last time they were here that she had started cutting out this quilt. It's been in my guest closet for 2 years and I didn't remember at all!
It turns out that we had made good notes so she was able to start cutting and sewing right away. I don't know if she will get the top together while she's here but I expect she'll take it home this time to finish before she changes the decor in her bedroom again.
This weekend I hope to get the mastectomy bags done and get the blue fabric cut for the Antelope Canyon quilt.

Glad your friends arrived safely and that you're enjoying your visit. Her quilt is going to be wonderful - good thing she remembered it was there!

Is there a pattern for that fabulous quilt, or did it just appear in someone's head?

So smart to have notes! Many times I have put things away that are partially made thinking I will remember what I was doing and then years pass and I don't remember anything! LOL!! Have fun with your company!
