The first thing I want to mention today is that I've heard that some people are having trouble getting the blog subscription newsletter. I think it's related to the email address that I'm using. I've made a change that I hope will work. If you have stopped getting them all together you might want to try to re-subscribe on the box on the right side of this page.
Sewing weekend was very productive! I got another veterans quilt top done. This is from the same kit as the one I made last month. I think I like this one a little better than the other one. It's just mroe to my personal taste. Both will be good comfort quilts for 2 veterans.
This one is all scrap fabric. The large squares are a Paula nadelstern fabric that I used as the background from my Pleides quilt. The gold is leftover veterans quilt back fabric and the small print fabrics are all symmetry fabric scraps.
I finished that quilt and had time to clean my travel machine, wind a bunch of bobbins and make one block from the next kit I'll work on. This one has enough pieces for 2 quilts. They should go together pretty fast but I will not work on the until the next sewing weekend. I'm in no hurry. I've made 10 veterans quilts this year so far and I'm happy with that productivity.
Mom stayed with me Friday night so after sewing we visited my brother. I delivered his blanket to him and also delivered this little sweater that I dyed for his massively spoiled dog, Lulu. Lulu is a little nutty and very demanding of belly rubs and attention. She's a funny dog and she's really grown on me. I was surprised that she actually kept this on for about 15 minutes.
After she gets all of the attention that she needs she digs into her blanket and this is all we see unless she hears anything that might sound like a treat.
I spent a lot of Sunday ironing while watching football but I also made a little progress on my Red Sunset quilt.
I might be going out of town for a few days this week so if I don't post a for a couple of days that's why.
