Back to Monday already

Boy the weekends sure go by fast!  I always try to cram too much in, but there are just too many things I want to do each weekend.  There's sewing, of course and crocheting and baking and cooking and crafting with my grandson this weekend.  And now as I am writing this the dishwasher finally run after the big mother's day dinner and laundry is spinning around so the must do things are also getting done.  I let myself do the fun stuff for every must do I accomplish.  Here are some of the fun things: remember the pillow above?  It was from the Moda Bake Shop.  I hate doing zippers so I did an overlapping back.  Because of the width of the pillow, it tended to gap.  My solution....buttons!

I had to learn how to do buttonholes on my Bernina.  I had never used that feature since I got this new machine.  Think I've got it now.
 Then time out to try out this little pattern.  It is from Little Red Hen I didn't know she did crochet too!  I had to rip out 7 times to figure it out, but the first one is done and I love it!!  I am still a novice in pattern reading I guess. 

I started piecing the back to my Sunkissed Squares quilt finally.  I can't wait to get this one done and start quilting it with the cotton floss!  And while all this was going on, V was working on some projects of his own for mother's day and just because he loves crafting like his momma and I.
craft sticks and glue

some great pictures...he's very prolific.
And that was our weekend.  One more thing; I am contemplating this fabric and trying to decide what it should become.  At first I thought curtains, but now I'm not so sure.  Any ideas?

I just love this!  Have a great week!

I love this fabric, but living in a house called 'The Garden House' I guess it is a pretty natural attraction. Not sure what you should make out of it, but I sure hope it is something like curtains that show off the beautiful flower pattern!!
