Then lots of apricots - jars of apricot halves, jars of apricot juice and many jars of apricot-pineapple jam. I love that the kids raid the pantry when they stop by but sure hope they save some for us.

That should bring me up to date in keeping track of my quilty life :)

I used the time to start putting the pieces together for the Chelsea Cottage quilt many of us came home with after AAQR last year.
Monday I spent part of the day using a friends longarm to quilt a few comfort quilts for parents of fellow quilter/friends. One pass with yucky tension and an even yuckier thread choice and it came off the machine to be unsewed. Sigh.
Then it was off to spend a couple hours with 60+ of my favorite Girl Scouts as they are in the final stages of planning a day long event for Daisy's & Brownies. It was one of our better gatherings and lot was accomplished, but you know what they say . . . It's all fun and games until someone pulls the fire alarm. At least we now know the answer to the age old question of how many firemen does it take to check a pulled alarm. They even made us promise we wouldn't hurt any of the girls before they left.
That brings me up to date and now I'm off to spend some more time unsewing so I can start it all over again tomorrow.

This is The Big House where we go for incredible home cooked meals at 8, noon & 6.
Then we walk off some of the meal by heading down the path to the Little House and getting back to work.
This is the room 10 of us were working in. Looks kind of messy, but you know what they say about creative minds and boy were those minds working overtime this weekend!

3 shirts and 3 pair of shorts for my brother. Every year he shows up on my doorstep with a bag of fabric for me to create his new spring/summer wardrobe. At least I've finally trained him to shop at his local quiltstore (and use my name for their frequent shopper program) :) I do need to add an additional training session on why it's not appropriate to buy panels for clothing construction, but I'll worry about that for next year.
