Happy Friday to you. I hope your week has been productive and that you are ready for the weekend. As you know, I finished all my quilt projects and now our mini-group has a challenge. We decided to use Eleanor Burns new book Forty Fabulous Years and make a quilt of our choosing. With 12 of us making different sizes and colors, it will be fun to see at the end of the challenge. I haven't seen Eleanor Burns in person, but she is a hoot. An icon in the quilting world, she brings fun and craziness to making quilts. I have made several of her quilts before and am really looking forward to our challenge. Each month our leader demonstrates two blocks and we all go home and make them before the next meeting. She is known for wearing a boa during her lectures and also throwing scraps over her shoulder.
Today we've been to the gym already~weight machines and 3.5 miles on the bike. Now we are getting ready to go out to lunch with in-laws. It's raining and snow is scheduled to fall around noon.
Tonight we will be with Kim's family as she and her hubby are going out to celebrate their 16 anniversary; where has the time gone? Tomorrow her hubby and oldest daughter are running in a 5K and doing a polar bear plunge. We are planning on going unless it is snowing heavily. They will run regardless-burr!
Have a great day today!
Blessings and joy,
Progress on the parlor.....
