A Fun Four-Patch...

 I worked on a sweet lap quilt yesterday. I began with a sewing-theme focus fabric, pulled
 the fabrics to use as coordinates and I was ready to go. I chose a Sashed Four-Patch
design, so I cut 5 1/2" squares of each fabric and set about my assembly line for the sets.
 By the end of my work play day, I had assembled all the four-patches and all of the
 sashing. Tomorrow I'll add the next border (or two) and then decide what I'm going
to do for the backing. It won't be finished until it's quilted and embellished.
(I've got a really cute idea in mind!)
Next time you see it, it will be finished and ready to ship out.
I'll even tell you who it's going to live with!

Well, it's Saturday morning so you know what that means...coffee with the girls.
Afterwards, I'm joining my friend, Tammy for lunch. There's nothing
quite like starting the day with good friends to stir up the creative juices.
When I get back home, I'm going to finish this project.

Sunday afternoon will be another treat. I get to listen to Handsome perform again.
I'll be recording the North Port Concert Band's Christmas concert.
(I've been their official videographer for the last two seasons.)
I went to the last rehearsal so I can tell you it will be a real holiday treat.
As soon as I finish editing the recording, I'll be sure to post a little holiday cheer for you.
 
What are your plans for today (and the weekend?)
I hope there's a little holiday spirit in your future!
