beam me up scottie...

This weekend held a whirlwind of events. Friday night dinner date with Travis, rummage sale excursion, quilt guild, severe weather, and Sunday afternoon quilting. I'm happy to say that I'm back in the swing of sewing mode, so now it's time to get some stuff accomplished. I worked on my baby quilt for the nursery and have about 60% of it done. I have all the blocks cut out and all the scotties appliqued on. This week I have a goal of getting it all pieced together and ready for quilting..."no pressure". I need to finish a mother's day gift and work some more on my brother-in-law's wedding quilt, but I'm just happy that I'm not too stressed over any of it.

I had some luck rummaging and found my mobile guts so I can start making my custom scottie dog mobile. I found some mirrors that I plan to paint with some funky color for the walls in the baby's room and I also stumbled across the cutest antique child's chair. I think I will keep the finish as is, but I think I will jazz it up with a cushion to match the crib bedding, quilt, and rocking chair pads. I'm so excited that everything is coming together for all of it. Next weekend is demo time for the baby's room. I need to get all my quilting stuff cleared out and wallpaper taken down along with shelving and drop ceiling.

Here are some pictures from the weekend:

Yikes! I heard about the bad weather down there! Glad you guys are okay. The quilt is coming along really good! I love the scotties. The chair was a great find! I think you are right to leave it as is. Thanks for your comment today, being a stay at home mom is the best! I feel so fortunate to be able to do it. Not that its easy every day, but its definitely worth it!!
