long pier for short walks
The rest of the time was laughing our asses off watching Sophia-Grace and Rosie on Ellen YouTube vids, lounging in our jammies till noon (or later, ahem), munching on all sorts of delicious wheat-free snacks and shared meals, chatting, chatting, chatting and a moderate amount of sewing. Yup, moderate. For once I have returned from a retreat without an aching neck, shoulders and lower back. A fairly significant dent was made in my proverb quilt; all of the text rows have been pieced and I worked on two smaller projects as well.
There are a few finishing touches to put on a great bag I made for my daughter before I can show it to you. In the mean time, here's the fun iPad sleeve I made using Faith's tutorial on Fresh Lemon Quilts.
I had ordered more of Melody Miller's transistor fabric to make some tech protectors and then I was alerted to Faith's tute which looked amazing in the same fabric. Score! The transistors are paired here with some Essex linen in orange and Echo by Lotta Jansdotter (all from Marmalade Fabrics! and the transistors are on super-sale). I like that the sleeve has a zippered pocket for extras and charging cable. The new iPad 2 with magnetic screen protector fits snugly.
Hope you had a lovely weekend too!
