Self induced and unannounced blogging break...

I didn't mean to be away as long as I was, but I just didn't have anything to say...or rather, I had plenty to say and share, but just didn't have the umph to write. But lets get right to the sharing...

This is the quilt that I'm working on for my boss. She will be finishing her term in the next month (and her birthday is at the end of the month) and I wanted to give her something special, something that she would use and something that she would think of our office when she used it.

Its only a lap quilt (12 inch squares, log cabin, 3 across/4 down with white sashing and backing and I may combine the left over strips to create the binding).

These aren't the colors I necessarily think of when I think of her, but they jumped out of my stash closet and said "Use me and me and me and me!!" Of course, I was sick at the time, so that may have been a hallucination. Anyhoo, now when she is sitting at home on a cold, snowy night, reading a book with this quilt on her lap, she will think of all of us stuck here listening to the Senate until some ungodly hour and thank her lucky stars that she doesn't have to do that anymore (and then drive 30 minutes home with people still calling her!)

Well, the day is almost done, tomorrow is wood day (Mum, Dad, Derek and I load up trucks and trailers and bring 4 cord of wood to the Lake) and Saturday, my cousin is getting married ♥ in Massachusetts! Still so much to do before then!

Have a wonderful weekend, anyone and everyone. Until next week!
