Best Laid Plans ---


Well - I'll just say I'm a free spirit! Then I have to protest that outside forces were at work, making sure I didn't get any of my plans done. Heh heh heh. So the big plans didn't happen because Saturday I ended up gone most of the day and going out to dinner that night, then our friends came over. So much for that day! Sunday was more of the same - all fun stuff and fun people, but all time away from the sewing room. Then there was Mary Hickeys' book of baby quilts that got me all fired up to start making quilts for the first grandson coming in June - Jaden. I hope he likes cowboys! Just as I was sewing on the last border, Jaden's Daddy came in, scared the soup out of me. He lives 75 miles away! He came up behind me and did a "boogie-boogie" - whew! So I got to show him Jaden's quilt, and he wants me to do fleece for backing. I don't have any right now, so quilting will happen later - but the top was all done in one day!

Here's a close up of the blocks, fussy-cut from some cute fabric, that I think my darlin' Rosy gave me when she was my Secret Pal a couple of years ago. I can't remember buying it but I have a hazy memory of opening a gift and finding it.


Every bit of it came from stash, too! So it was free! LOL - how's that for reasoning? If I shop in my closet, it dosn't cost a thing. Makes sense to me! And I know anyone reading this will agree that it's too easy to get sidetracked into new projects - that's the fun of it all! Hmmmm...now what?

The cowboy quilt looks great and what little fella wouldn't just love it. Done in one day (holy ...) - I've never completed a top in one day and you sound like you had a fun weekend, too.

Hi Su Bee, just popped over to see where you thread your needles..*VBS* Thanks for stopping by at my blog and leaving a comment. So happy that the Hamilton Book link worked out for you. I have found some really great values there, and am totally happy with the shipping and their service. They don't ship as fast as Amazon, but they sure have good books at great prices.
I love your cowboy quilt for the new grandson, and have to say I really like the sail boat quilt you posted earlier.
You gave me quite a chuckle when I looked at your profile to see what your blog name was...LOL...you manage very well for someone 250 years old...Hugs, Finn *VBG*
