Happy Friday

Today Kathy and I ran a million errands and felt like we got alot done so we went and saw National Treasure 2, then ran to rent NT1 since she hadn't seen it. I sewed a few I love you hand labels on quilts that needed them, worked on the puzzle quilt that wasn't quite right til I was happy with it and browsed through my Denyse Schmidt book and decided I should make the heating pad cover for my heating pad. I also want to make the Mix it up cocktail coasters she has in there and I have collected a few fabrics I think will work for that. I love this book but I haven't actually done anything from it...just looked at it repeatedly!

My other favorite book is by Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr and is called The Modern Quilt Workshop. I have actually made two quilts from this book and am really looking to make another. My daughter is the proud owner of Outside the Box and my son of Love Beads. I may make the Zipper quilt for my oldest son too. Here are some pictures of those quilts.

I have really enjoyed being off work so I can quilt and plan quilts and such...I am going to make more of an effort to find time to quilt even though I have to go back to work soon. My migraines seem to have improved and I am wondering if quilting is good therapy for me!

I've bookmarked your blog so that I can come back often : )
