I finished up my cleaning this morning before heading out to the stores. I didn’t worry too much about the house because we don’t have a crowd coming in but I made sure I did all my usual cleaning and a little bit extra. We have a House Concert next weekend but we’ll be at Film Festival most of the week so I needed to get a bit of a head start on things. Not that I expect anything will stay clean!

We needed a few groceries and I needed treats for the show tonight; to get everything I wanted I had to shop at both Quality Foods (for their Marble Rye bread) and Safeway (for their English Muffins). Mini doughnuts, mini tarts and Valentine cookies will be on the board tonight. I’ll go to the Hall early to help the “new guys” set up; next time they will be on their own. If there is anything left at the end of the night Pat can take it to the afternoon workshop tomorrow.

It wasn’t until I checked my mail after lunch that I realized today they released Week 2 of my latest quilt-along. I hadn’t done Week 1 yet so I worked on them this afternoon. Both are finished now. The pieces I was using were all 1.5″ or 2″ and it was very handy to have my scrap cabinet right beside my cutting table. It is amazing how many things you can make from scraps and not even see much of a dent in the drawers.

We’ve got some sunny weather today and it is supposed to last. I’m hoping to get at least one quilt sandwiched this weekend. For now though I’m going to do a bit of work on my Thursday project – or maybe my Strip Quilt. Always lots to choose from.
