There are so many blessings about today but first and foremost it’s Saturday. I got to sleep in until 7:30 a.m. which is a rare thing for me. I picked blackberries. I mowed most of the yard. I weed whacked (actually my least favorite thing to do) and now it is the heat of the day and I am inside rehydrating and in my sewing room.
I am bubbling with excitement because I received a package in the mail today that contained my # 3 installment for my BOM “A Boy and A Girl” by Kim Mclean. When I opened it out popped a riot of beautiful colored fabric that felt like Liberty fabrics. The snippets are small and I do not know who the manufacturers are but boy are they luscious to the touch. What quilter does not like to touch and feel fabric. Honestly, isn’t that one of the requirements of being a quilter?
My goal this weekend other than getting caught up on yard work is finishing hand appliqueing the cute owl Row by Row block. This is the last row of my 2014 Row by Row Adventure and then I can sew it all together. I was able to purchase a couple of license plates and I have decided to use them in the backing.
So the rest of the day will be spent appliqueing the Owl row. Then when it cools down outside I will finish picking the blackberries.
Hope you enjoy your Saturday as much as I am mine!
