(1) a bag of hot doughnuts
(2) favorite magnets on the fridge
(3) a peach smoothie
I've been experimenting with smoothies lately (bought a Magic Bullet thingie) and I really like how the peach ones turn out! I use a cup of almond milk (frozen), a container of vanilla yogurt, a ripe peach, a handful of granola and a couple dashes of cinnamon. Yummy-licious!
I think I'm going to like using these containers, they're 14x14 square and almost 3-1/2" high, so I can easily put 12-1/2" blocks inside without folding. They're flat and will stack easily, and the colors are pretty kewl. Can't see through em though, but at $20 I'm satisfied with the deal - it's like paying $4 each.
Can't beat that at Joann's!
A few months ago I mentioned that I'm going on Bonnie Hunter's Alaska quilting cruise (Quilting Under the Midnight Sun). Bonnie is one busy lady - as I type this, she's in Alaska doing a workshop sponsored by the Kenai Peninsulsa Quilt Guild of Soldotna!
But time really flies, I can't believe we have two more weeks! Renea and I are taking a 7:30 am flight out of Baltimore, changing in Chicago, then running like H-E-Double-Hocky-Sticks for the port! It's all good though, we won't be the only ones. :O)
Bonnie designed a quilt specially for the cruise, a scrappy two-color-family quilt with neutrals. She gave us the option of choosing different colors from hers... with some input from Wanda (thanks, Wanda!) I've chosen these fabrics from my stash:
The greens and pinks will more than likely be batik fabrics and my neutrals probably will be also, I haven't definitely decided on that part yet. I'm not looking to get the entire quilt pieced on the cruise, I'm only taking enough fabric for two or three blocks - fabric is heavy, and heavy-on-a-plane is extra $$! You know the drill... classes will be held on the at-sea days, with the room made available all week if you want to do extra sewing. Hmmm... extra sewing, or seeing the glaciers?? Extra sewing, or seeing a stage show?? Decisions, decisions!
Anyway, the quilt is all made from 2" strips, so I'll pull out my trusty GO cutter and it'll be done in no time flat - thank goodness for the GO!
Take care and do something relaxing and fun - it's the weekend! Sew forth and sew on til later...
