Update for the weekend
Yesterday was mostly an errand day is it worked out like most errand days. I need a new phone and made my second trip to Best Buy to get one. Picked one out and now I get to go back next week to get it because they didn't have it in stock. . Then I went to DSW to get some new sneakers. I came home with new hiking boots but no sneakers. Then I went to Kroger to use a gift card and proceeded to use my debit card at checkout instead! It was a typical errand day with varying rates of success. I am pretty excited about the hiking boots though. I've been shopping for them since September. I can't wait to go try them out.
Before and after shopping I actually got some sewing and quilting done.'
The little lap quilts are going to come together so fast! Between Wednesday evening and yesterday morning I finished 3 more tops. These 4 will be for the butterfly print fabric as backing. I can already tell that I'm just going to power through these tops. Who knows when they will get quilted but they are way too much fun to piece. I'll probably try to gather some of my batting options this weekend and pair up some batting with each set of quilt top/backs.
After running errands I got to spend some time in the basement washing out fabrics and quilting 8 more stars. I think I'm 1/3 done with the star motifs and borders. I'm going to have to get cracking coming up with my plan for quilting the green areas.
These 2 projects are basically my plans for the weekend after I meet up with some friends this evening. I hope you have a fun weekend doing whatever you love doing.

I love the veteran's quilts! A simple design, but the quilts are so pretty being made with your luscious, luminous hand-dyed fabrics! The recipients will love them.

Really laughing at your errand day - I don't know how many times I go looking for certain things and come home with completely different things.

Well, shoot, Vicki. That's why errand days are so much fun! Ha.

I am laughing about the gift card - because that is so "me." I have had to wrap a note around my credit card as a reminder to use the gift card FIRST.
