Things were accomplished here at Casa P this weekend. The biggest accomplishment has to go to Mr. P who surfed 101 waves yesterday to support his favorite charity, Boys to Men Mentoring Network, in their 100 Wave Challenge. My accomplishments this weekend did not involve any strenuous activity, thank goodness. Instead, I employed the mantra of the turtle, “Slow and steady wins the race.” This HST patchwork pillow was finally quilted and assembled. Lots of fun Sis Boom scraps in this one, which go beautifully with the other Sis Boom pillows around here. The block is usually known as Depression Era but I like to think of this one as “What depression?!” Jennifer’s color sense always has a heavy dose of optimism. I think this block shows just how well that optimism runs throughout her collections.
I also worked on a free pattern this weekend, one I think you’ll enjoy. A patchwork foot stool….from scratch. And by “from scratch” I mean starting with a square of plywood and some hardware. I can’t wait for you to see it next month!
I may have gotten carried away with some digital pattern ideas. You’ll get to see those eventually too. If it hadn’t been for Stinka, I would have missed out on some gorgeous weather outdoors. Thank you, Stinka, for reminding me about the small things.I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready for Fall! (Or Spring as the case may be.)
