I want to stay up to date on my Dear Baby Jane blocks so I have to make sure I get to them done on the weekend. My latest blocks are above. One easy, one hard. Can you guess which one is which? Ha. The triangle look a chunk of time and its a little "off" at the top but I did my best.
I love to hand applique and I realize this pattern/project would be finished long ago if I used another way to applique but I want to enjoy it as I go. I am 2/3 finished with my blocks and I'm loving how they are turning out. This is fun. I'm in my element when I make a novelty quilt.
This is a quilt my friend Ashley made. Its her first quilt! Yayy. And then I quilted it for her this weekend. Obviously its an Hawaiian themed quilt. I'm super proud of her.
Its my mother-in-laws birthday today. Happy Birthday Marie. We had my in-laws for dinner yesterday and I wanted to make it a nice dinner. It turned out well and I think they had a nice time.
We had roast beef and I made a zucchini gratin. I love Ina Garten and I actually DVR her show everyday. For my birthday I got 2 Barefoot Contessa cookbooks. I also used Ina's chocolate cake receipe that Laura recently made. It was really good. There wasn't a piece left.
So it was a pretty good weekend. Now back to work. Anyone have any good Father's Day ideas?
