Cotton napkins! Yay, maybe we'll cut down on the extreme amount of paper towels we use!
Oh yeah, here is a little pincushion I whipped up Thursday evening using some fabric scraps. Isn't it cute?
After visiting with the girls I made a fabric run. I was invited by my friend to go to a quilting group that evening and needed to get the material.
I have never made a quilt and to be honest was a little intimidated. However, my friend assured me I could do it. Another friend of ours is the one who is leading the group. I had so much fun meeting everyone and hanging out with such a great group of ladies! My friend who leads the group was so patient and made sure everyone had the help they needed. I got a lot done that night. I was able to get the front done on Sunday. Still a lot to do and I can't wait to go again!
Here is a picture of some of the blocks that I was able to finish! I feel like I got so much done :)
Aaron and I were able to spend the day on Saturday together. My Mom and Step-dad picked the girls up and took them out for the day. They went to the planetarium and had fun all day. Aaron and I went to Burlington and out to lunch. It was nice. I was able to work on some embroidery pieces Saturday afternoon. I also made this rice bag for my friend . . .
Sunday morning, the girls wanted waffles for breakfast. I don't have a waffle maker, wish I did, so we had Eggo's! I got a lot done around the house on Sunday and made homemade chicken noodle soup for lunch. I felt very productive. This included finishing sewing the rows together for my quilt. Then before I knew it, it was time to go to a Superbowl party! We had fun last night hanging out with good friends and eating good food!
My sweet girls!
Mmmm . . . good breakfast!
Homemade chicken noodle for lunch! A favorite around here.
The front of my quilt!
I finished up some more napkins before Superbowl. I never use those fancy stitches on my sewing machine so I wanted to see what they would do. Turned out pretty cute!
This evening we watched Megamind and enjoyed "hanging" out with the family :) Now the kiddos are in bed and I am going to get rid of this piece of chocolate chess pie my MIL left for me. I tell her not to leave things like that but she does not listen to me!
