We had a great day of quilting and conversation. I very rarely do anything like this so I really enjoyed the day.
I worked on the quilt I started last week, and Sherry worked on a quilt for her grandson. The third member of our party left a bit earlier and I didn't get pics of her project.
When I got home I decided that I would add to what I already had and expand it to a bed quilt for the guest bedroom. I have a couple more borders and then the fun part begins. The quilting!!!
I made soap last night and cut it when I got home. This is our Country Roads. I usually use titanium dioxide to keep the lighter parts white, but I decided to leave it out this time. This smells really nice and is a unisex scent so I left out the glitter. Apparently, guys do not like glitter.
I made some candles and tarts last Saturday in anticipation of the Syrup Festival in April. I've been playing with labels. Just what I needed - another addiction!
While Ben was napping today, I poured over one of my quilt books by Lynette Jensen of Thimblerries. Tonight I plan to finish my current quilt top because on the way home from Ionia, I bought some fabric for my next quilt.
But hanging is my sewing room is a scrap of fabric for a quilt challenge. That has to be done by the time of the Shepherd Maple Syrup festival. And then there are the curtains I need to finish for the twins' room, not to mention the quilt I am repairing for my daughter. I guess I have enough to keep me out of trouble for a while.
