A really nice weekend

As we come to the close of another weekend, I dream that this is what retirement would be like.

Our youngest nephew celebrated his birthday recently, and we celebrated with him on Saturday by playing Mario Kart and Wii Sports (okay, CC played with him while I watched and knitted on my socks). The day was beautiful, a nice day to take a drive. Here's my progress on one of the socks.

Today I started out by putting a 15-bean soup in the crock pot, did a few chores, but mostly had some fun in the sewing room. I started out by attaching the new borders to my MCQG 2011 mystery quilt. I like them much better than the yellowish ones I had originally attached.

After that I finished up round 8 of the Feathered Fantasy quilt blocks (the purple ones), and cut out the strips for rounds 9 and 10 plus the quarter square triangles for finishing.

Then I finished piecing the Twist n Spin strips for the placemats I'm making - both the Christmas ones and the remaining 3 ones for my kitchen / cat bowl mats. I still have to find some fabric for the Christmas ones, so that project will probably be set aside for a bit until I go shopping at a local quilt shop. And I'm hoping to get the rest of the cat bowl mats pieced before Retreat. I would really like to get them quilted before then too, but I'm not pushing that. :)

I've narrowed down my Retreat projects to 3 or 4 - now I just need to go look at the patterns and decide which one(s) I really want to devote some time to.
