I should have known...

that I wouldn't have time to sew yesterday.  My art quilters group is coming Monday so I had to finish putting away the garage sale stuff because they come in that way to get to the basement.  Then I had to vacuum the basement and dust all of the tables.  I had put all of the machines on one table and put a plastic drop sheet over them while I was gone so I had to set up all of the machines too.  I was putting away all of the class samples and supplies and I don't think I showed this little piece after it was sewn together.  Maybe I'll decide on borders and finish it soon.
I finished reading "Spider Bones".  I was so close to the end that I had to keep going until it was done. 

I need to bake one batch of cookies early this morning while it is still cool.  I'm not sure when I'll do the second batch.  It will depend on the weather.

I don't like it when cleaning gets in the way of sewing. It's good you've got friends coming though.
What a stunning piece with those fabrics!

Do you ever slow down? I just wish I had half of your energy. I know I've said it before, but it's true! :)

Lovely! Love all the movement in this, almost like the fabric is playing a game.

I must confess, I've never been a big fan of colorwash quilts, but this one is more interesting to me because of the interesting color and texture variations in the fabrics. How big are the squares?
