Our family is like that. Dates don't mean a whole lot. We've always had jobs or activities requiring us to be somewhat flexible in holiday/special day celebrations and this is no exception. It doesn't mean the day isn't important; quite the contrary actually. But life has a way of wiggling into things and we just work with it, instead of against.
Like my blog posts. This weekend was filled with family, food, and fun. We worked and played all weekend and not much time was spent in here doing quilt things. It was good to get back yesterday!
Here's what I've been up to:
I stumbled on this little fabric box yesterday while listening to YouTube videos. It sparked my attention and I watched the whole video through to see if this was some little project I could whip out, which, of course, took longer then expected, but cute nonetheless.

This is a Judy Niemeyer pattern I've had laying around since about October. I was waiting to purchase fabrics to work on the pattern, but then saw a "scrappy" version of the very same pattern at the Chicago show. I decided I could pull all my batiks together and make what I could out of those instead. So far I've only had a few "shortness" issues, but think I've got them all worked out in my head.

I love string quilts! Probably because I'm more partial to the scrappy look of quilts and find these not only pretty to look at, but very utilitarian as well.
Today will be more arc construction and then who knows where I'll go. It's a mystery for sure!
