I Like Thursday: Tea and Treats

It's Thursday - time to like some stuff!

I like that I got together with some crafting friends on Sunday.  We drank tea, gabbed and showed off our latest creations.  There was so many good things.


I loved the purple and teal carpenter blocks.  And isn't that sashiko (the navy blue with white stitching) pretty?  One friend brought a black, white and red quilt top.  She'll be quilting it soon.  It will look fantastic when it's finished!  And so many delicious treats.  I had lovely leftovers for two days.  Yum.

I like the new shiny black car in our driveway.  I got to ride in it on Sunday (I'm afraid to drive it until Rob knows how it works - it does all sorts of newfangled stuff I'm not used to!).  I'll stick with my little blue car.  But it's nice to know we have one reliable car.

I like that I'm going to a dance tonight - which is some unexpected fun.  On the other hand, it may be a sign that I've lost my mind... I'll be picking up a dozen (yes, twelve!) acoustical drapes.  Yup - I'm tackling another set of The Drapes of Doom!




But before I face whatever I'm doing with the drapes, I need to finish my Mom's quilt.  I like that I have my first 10 blocks.  Look at that!  And even better?  The points are all pointy and they're all 9½" square.  All that trimming and squaring paid off!  Most wondrous!

I have nothing planned this weekend, so I hope to be doing lots of sewing.

There's more to like over at Not Afraid of Color.  Enjoy!

  3. Hi Sally,
    Oh my, that navy with the white stitching! WOW - that looks so beautiful. And so do the carpenter blocks - thanks for sharing the name of the block because I often wonder and then do not know. Ooh, new cars - don't you love the new car smell? You will adjust to it soon! A dozen drapes - have you lost your mind?! I hope you have a fabulous weekend, sewing away! ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Your crafty get together sounds like fun! I just came home from my afternoon quilt group get together - show and tell, treats, and lots of chit chat. Those times with friends are the best! Your mom's quilt blocks are looking good!

  9. It took about 5 months before I could bear to load my lovely new (2004) Highlander with hay. It was just so...nice. And now it's just so...hay-ey. And will be, forevermore.
    Just working my way up to the day I have to put goats in the back.
