Day 10 and Day 11 - Busy Weekend

These have been really busy vacation days. I sewed all morning yesterday at our Breakfast Club gathering sponsored by a local quilt shop. They make a new breakfast recipe, share a pattern and we gather and either make it as shown or select our own fabric. The top photo shows the blocks we worked on in the sample provided by the teacher. She made a shortened table runner and 2 placemats with only one showing. Most of us selected our own fabric and here are three blocks made by three of us. Mine is the bottom block and I selected the "Attitude Girls" jelly roll from Moda. I am thinking I want a lap quilt, but it is going to be put aside for the next couple weeks - then maybe - but it will probably be a table runner

We enjoyed wonderful company this weekend with great meals made even better with long visits, lots of laughter and good stories. Our home team, the Montana State Bobcats beat the cross state rival, University of Montana Grizzlies in basketball last night. That game was the excuse we used for gathering with friends and the win was an even better excuse to linger over the friendship.

Another celebration for our grandson, Walker, who won a prize in the annual baby pictures contest sponsored by our local paper so his picture is in the Sunday paper today. All of the babies were too cute - not sure how they decide who wins the prizes, but we know they made the right choice selecting Walker as one of the winners. That is a "grandma" speaking, of course!

Now - this will be an early to bed night after a very short night last night. Back to normal tomorrow. Only 3 days left of this vacation so I have a lot to get done before we head for Portland later in the week.
