This has been a wonderful week! though I didn't get much sewing done.
Saturday we ventured into Boston for Wentworth's Family Weekend with our son, Taylor and his girlfriend Clarissa. After dinner at Qdoba's resturant we took a school bus! to Blue Man Group. Lucked out - I think - with 2nd row seats. Not sure what it is that they use but there was a faint smell of banana pudding on us for the rest of the evening :) Fun was had by all. If you have a chance to see them it's a great show!
Sunday at home was a 'Fall Cleaning' day... Windows washed, leaves removed (first layer anyway), etc...
At the end of the day I hid and sewed just a little....
The project I chose to work on isn't on my list so it's a 'new project' and it's Regina's 4 Patches 4 Hope project.
It's a wonderful project to help the American Cancer Society. I know that Cancer has 'stomped' on the life of two special people in my life in the past year and a half. We all need to help put a stop to this horrible disease!
Regina's "concept is simple - Make a 4 Patch... Make a Donation... Make a difference." It's a unique and wonderful idea.
These are the blocks I made.
OK, so who doesn't have a couple of yards of coordinating fabric and a little time they can give to help make a difference?? Myself, I'm going to try to send Regina some blocks each month to help her wonderful project.
Well, the only other thing I accomplished this week was gathering fabric for two other blogs projects: Block lotto where it's Sampler month with blues and creams and the Valor Quilt Bee. Hope to get blocks for both of these done this weekend. Oh and I bought some flannel fabric to back the three pink D4P quilts! Going to be 'snuggle up warm.'
