Working For The Weekend...

P3 Designs - Florida Album Block
 I was so busy yesterday that I never picked up a camera.
This weekend is the workshop that I'm holding to start our guild quilt 
for the 2014 quilt show. Two of my friends from the guild came over to
our home to learn about the techniques ahead of the workshop, and then
they tucked right in to help me with some of my last minute preparations.

Pat K. and Joan B. were a godsend! We got so much accomplished!
They came over at 12:30 pm and left around 4 pm.
They're both guild board members (like I am), and we had an evening board 
meeting last night, so I only said goodbye for a couple of hours. 
I couldn't wait to thank them in front of the rest of the board.

P3 Designs - Iowa Album Block
 Pearl (of P3 Designs) completed two more blocks that we need for our 
quilt, so as soon as the girls left, I went to her online site and ordered them.
I love these two!
Check out the alligator on the Florida block, and the great use
of a specialty fabric in the Iowa block for the corn! So clever.
(You can see all of her album blocks by clicking here.)

Work officially begins on the construction of this quilt on Saturday.
I promise to share lots of photos of the workshop.

Today, I'm going to work on Farmer's Wife blocks again.
As Scarlet O'Hara says, "Tomorrow's another day."
I'll be working on the applique' blocks then.

I hope your day is filled with you doing things that make you happy.
See you again tomorrow!
