I've been sewing up a storm over the weekend! I worked on the Orange Crush Mystery quilt and finished with step 3. Yeah, I cheated and went ahead with the next step before finishing with step 2. Is it just me or is step 2 seems to take forever to get done?
My favorite unit of step 3 is the unplanned one of a cat face peeking out!
At the beginning of the mystery quilt, I also pulled fabrics from my 30's collection to make a baby quilt called Pink Lemonade. I started sewing on this project too. This one should be quicker to complete each step ... smaller quilt = less blocks to do. Since it's still a mystery, I'm guessing as to how many blocks to do. One of the gal from QuiltvilleChat group suggested to cut the numbers to a quarter, so I'm going with that. When Bonnie reveals the mystery, I will adjust it accordingly. For now, Step 1=40 4-patches.
Celebrating Mother's Day!
Since we spent half of the day in the RV driving back from the Colorado River last Sunday, John and the kiddos took me out to the Melting Pot for a belated Mother's Day dinner. It was yummy!
We started out with two different kinds of cheese fondue: Spinach Artichoke Cheese and Fiesta Cheese that the waiter mixed the ingredients and melted them in pots right at the table along with chips, veggies, bread, and apples to dip. These appertizers did not last long with my voracious group! *lol* Then I had a California salad with Walnut Rasberries dressing. It was delicious!
Of course, the entrees were delectable. We had two kinds of broth to cook the meats. seafood, and more veggies in. Yummm!!For dessert: Flaming Turtle, Yin and Yang Chocolates! What is better than ending the meal with CHOCOLATES with fresh fruits and cakes for dipping! :-D
