Boy - what a day. Kelly and I took Zoie shopping for volleyball shorts, kneepads and headbands. Luckily the school provides the tops. How many of you have been shopping with a 13 year old girl? I think we went through every pair of spandex shorts in the mall. But we finally found some shorts that met her approval and the schools requirements, a couple of tops for practices, kneepads and some headbands that will work until we can find something better.
That done, we had lunch at around 3:00 and came home.
So I want to back up a little.
This is Linda from my Girl Gang. Linda comes to the meeting each month, picks up her block, sits and chats for 2 hours but she never does any applique.
This month she brought a couple of quilts she's been working on.
The top on is crosstitch and is a King sized quilt.
I thought it was a good day to post it, following Alma's blog post.
This one is a bit smaller but the embroidery is absolutely stunning. The fabric is all French General. We told her she could bring her embroidery from now on. I think she just likes the fabric company.
The Crossroads pattern for today is "Let It Snow". They were supposed to be little snowman blocks but they grew.
Quilts have a mind of their own sometimes.
And I just love Lori's quilting as usual. Snowflakes in the snowmen
and squiggles in the trees.
The little quilt on special is Sunflowers and Scarecrows.
I need to take the dogs on their run and my walk so we need to get hopping. One hop is quite a distance - Aneela Hooey from the UK - and the other just a half a state away - Lynne from Kansas Troubles.
If you haven't already done it, be sure to go back to my post on the 6th and make a comment for a chance at the Crossroads precuts.
Then sometime before Tuesday morning, subscribe to my tutorial channel for a chance at the Rose Urn Kit (see yesterday).
Have a good rest of the weekend and see you Monday.
