A Fun Weekend!

Colin (son) and Jennifer (daughter-in-law) came for the weekend and we had such a good time quilting, eating and visiting! Jennifer also celebrated her birthday on September 1 so I made her a couple of really cute aprons (forgot to get pictures!) that Ben Franklin had directions on how to make them from linen kitchen towels and gave her some quilting $$.

Jennifer made a beautiful King Size quilt two years ago but had not had a chance to quilt it so this weekend was the perfect opportunity to try out Indie. So we loaded her up on Saturday and it was truly amazing and so much fun! I think I was up until about midnight on Saturday just quilting away and didn't realize the time. Then got up Sunday morning and Tony made biscuits and gravy for breakfast (for the guys only) - Jennifer had biscuits and honey and I had my regular cereal and blueberries instead! Then it was off again upstairs to the sweat shop (quilt studio) to finish up the quilt. An hour and half later it was finished! So much fun and I loved how Indie preformed and how the quilt turned out. Thanks Jennifer for trusting me with your quilt!
Then it was off to Gathering Fabrics in Woodinville and Ben Franklin in Redmond to see about spending those birthday dollars. We did have fun!!
