This photo is all I have to show for my weekend!
We went clay shooting Saturday and had a great time but I didn't take any photos. I haven't done any shooting for over a year so my expectations were low. There were 4 guys (all hunters) and 2 wives. Chris said I was the second best shooter of the group! I was at least the 3rd best. All those lessons I took actually stuck and that was a nice surprise. As a bonus, it was an absolutely beautiful day to be outside.
Shooting took all of Saturday but I had finished piecing my 4 Red Sunset corners on Friday and spent all day Sunday ripping out the papers. You can see that it was a huge mess but I didn't mind. This is kind of a zen activity and fine work for watching football. Sometime this week I will get the corners pressed and sewn to the quilt. I'm already starting to think about what might be my next big project. I will definitely do more Judy Niemeyer projects in the future.
This week is going to be a weird week schedule wise and my posting will be intermittent for the next few weeks. My friend, Laura, is coming in from England Thursday and we will be going to the beach on Sunday for a few days. I've moved my dyeing day to today but should be able to get Red Sunset sewn together tomorrow or Wednesday. After that's done I need to get back to the longarm and get some quits quilted. But I'm not going to stress about anything. After Thursday, and for the next 3 weeks, I'm going to do whatever Laura and I are in the mood to do.
Today, I'm off to the dye studio.

have fun while your friend is visiting and sounds like you are a pretty good shot! I have never tried shooting not really something I have been interested in although I know quite a few who do target shooting but not clay shooting

That type of paper work is a whole lot more fun than that which involves dollars and cents.

That sounds like a good plan with your friend. Be in the moment and just enjoy.

Haha! I don't really like paper work of that type any more than I like the 'doing taxes' type.

Have fun with your friend and enjoy your time together! Ripping out those papers does make quite a mess.
