A busy weekend

Nothing new to show quiltwise, really.  But I did have a full weekend.

  • Met with the 1800's gals again to firm up our project that we are going to start  - so now I can wash my fabric and get started! :)
  • I belong to Upper Midwest Machine Quilters and we met on Saturday - it was our quarterly meeting.  There is always a lot of inspiration, information and beautiful quilts there.  Lots of sharing of ideas from so many creative quilters.
  • Sunday,  I took a class on Faux Batik. The first of two classes.  We put a resist on three different fabrics with oatmeal, mash potatoes, and painted designs on with school gel glue and baby rice.  Next week we will paint or dye our fabrics and that will make our "batik".  The teacher directed us to Lisa Kerpoe for information about different resists.  It was very fun!
  • Hezzie, our dog, had to go to the vet. He has severe ear infections.  A bacterial infection in one and a yeast infection in the other.  We have always been very careful to use an ear wash after every bath but didn't do it the last few times.  I feel so guilty and so bad for the little furry guy. 

We decided to let voice mail get our messages for the rest of Sunday evening and watched TV uninterrupted.

Be sure to stop over at Judy L's at Patchwork Times to see what others are working on today.

Have a great start to your week!

Hope Hezzie feels better soon. Trips to the vet are no fun for either of you. Your faux batik class sounds interesting. Mashed potatoes?

Sounds like a very busy and fun (for the most part) weekend. Hope your pup is feeling better soon!
