Yesterday, while the guys were out picking up drywall with moms truck (since mine is no longer here), she hung out here with me in the studio. I wanted to give her a fun project to do while I was working on the Pepto quilt. I know she loves to work with colors and while she is so not a textile person, she is very artistic and her use of colors is amazing.
I showed her this.

She asked a few questions. She looked briefly looked through the book and within an hour she had all the fabrics selected.

Pepto is done! I didn't snap a pic of it completed because I couldn't get it out of here fast enough!
After the game, the boys decided to start hanging all the drywall they picked up before the game. I would have felt guilty sitting in the family room playing on my device while they were working so I decided to start in on the borders for Christmas Triangles.
Before we all stopped last night, the guys had one wall hung downstairs, and I had all the borders on the top. I still need to pre-wash the backing fabric (which I'll do once my daily load of laundry is done) and get the quilt loaded before we have to return the little kid back to school later today.

Today is Sunday and I should probably start working on my Christmas wall hanging for the guild party. I came up with an idea in my tiny little head, but for some reason it's just not fully lighting my fire. Maybe I need to research this some more this morning and see what else I come up with?
I got a late start blogging this morning because Connecting Threads is having a huge sale on notions today. I shopped for an hour (or more) and found some really useful things on my wish list for at least half off. Jim gave me the green light to add them all to my cart (including 505 at $6.05 a can). Must get busy doing something productive and less chatty out here in cyber land.
