Ev and I had the past week off. We rented a cute cabin in the Missouri Ozarks. It was a beautiful spot and was very peaceful and relaxing. Unfortunately, Ev was sick with a respiratory and sinus infection.
I had taken my Featherweight machine and made some of these cute little present blocks.
The new cat, Miss Lenore, was pretty happy to see us. My sister came over and fed and watered her. She has become quite the little lover , jumping in my lap and curling up for a nap.
This weekend I quilted panels for 4 more bags on Gemma.

Yesterday we had a girls day. The three of us from my area met up with our friend up north. We had a shopping trip and then lunch.
See all our bags? I put goodies in different pockets, too.
My son and his wife moved to the city over the weekend. They bought their first house. Since it is in the middle of the city, they didn't take their cat that had been living outside. We now have a cat living in our garage. I'm actually loving it. I go out and spend time with her every night when she comes in for the night.

Here is a checkbook cover I found a pattern for on Pinterest. It was super easy and worked up quickly. I needed something in a light color because I am always digging around in my purse for my checkbook. This pretty fabric is one of my favorites.
I finished quilting my brothers wedding quilt today. Took it off the frame and just have to add a label and bind it! Not sure what's going on Gemma next, but I want to keep the momentum going.

This is the top I am quilting next. It was on Gemma a year ago and part of it was ruined by Bess the cat. Had to build out the sides with the large border to make it the right size.
I picked up backing material over the weekend when Ev and I went down ti Nashville, IL. Lee's Variety store is so cool.... It reminds me if my childhood.

Salvation Army has had this entertainment center for a couple months now. It is not very tall and originally was marked at 50 bucks. It went down to 40, then 25, and today was marked 12.99. The one door did not line up properly. I sent Johanna a picture and asked if it was fixable. She said yes so I bought it (senior discount, with tax, price was 12.17 out the door).
I did not even have to take it out of the truck, she just fine tuned the door hinge and took out the tv stand and slider. When she removed the bottom drawer to do that she found the original receipt. In 1994 the cost was $1060! I think I got a good deal, don't you?
