Weekend Sew-a-thon

My boys left about 2 hours ago for a weekend camping trip. I purchased this selection of threads on Tuesday in anticipation of having time to work on my rectangles piece this weekend. Here's another photo of it.

This morning I made myself a salad. I'm going to start the bread machine soon so I can have some Italian bread to go with my salad. Then I'm going to sew, sew, sew.

Oh! And I had some exciting news in my email inbox. My art group entered a quilt in the Colorado Quilting Council Show and we won first place in our category!!! I'm searching for a photo of the quilt but haven't found one yet and I'm wasting valuable sewing time looking. If you click on "photo quilt" underneath the list of categories on the right hand side of my blog, it will take you to the entry where I posted a photo of my section of our quilt. We blew up the photo below and cut it into seven sections. Each person in the group made a section using a main color (mine was green) and its complement.

I know I have a photograph of our finished quilt somewhere on my computer, I just have to find it. When I do, I'll show you the finished, award winning, quilt.

Hey, congratulations! That is great! I can't wait to see the quilt when you post it. I know what you mean about not wanting to waste valuable sewing time. Have fun sewing while your boys are gone. I am looking forward to some fun sew time when my husband and daughter go off together and we are moved into our house. I'll probably be stuck unpacking and organizing the sewing room, however. Ha ha!
