I'm not sure what I did this week but it wasn't a lot of sewing. I did finish these two embroidered blocks for my Herb Quilt. Bee Balm and Eucalyptus were both pretty quick to do. This quilt will have 16 herb blocks set 4 x 4 with sashing and cornerstones. Then an embroidered poem will surround them for the first border and another border will be added after that. I have 15 blocks done so I'm the downhill side of this one!
Buried back in a bin of UFOs I found this "cheater panel" that I bought at least 8 years ago. Yes, 8. I confess that I have a few things like that. Perfect timing I thought so I got it out and did some machine quilting and hung it up. One more thing checked off that UFO list.
On Friday mornings my husband and I have breakfast with friends from church. Today, after breakfast, the ladies and I went to the annual craft fair held at our fairgrounds. I haven't been in years but we had great fun. It is a perfect day - still under 70° this morning, clear skies, and the crowd wasn't huge as it will be later in the day. I saw lots of things I wanted but I was good. I bought three odd shaped gourds, an apron and 5 lbs. of stone ground cornmeal. And to add to my Finished by Friday I must also acknowledge these: 1 fresh made vegetable egg roll, 1 apple fried pie, and 1 fresh squeezed lemonade. I wonder if we could go back there for supper?
