I've been in Virginia for almost a week and have enjoyed my time with Lexi, my granddaughter and, of course, my daughter, Serena. We celebrated Lexi's 1st birthday this past Saturday with a party. We had a great time with lots of little kids. Lexi seems to enjoy all her new toys and loved her birthday cake, as the picture shows. She ate cake and finger painted with the icing.
There is little time for quilting, but I brought some of the Material Girls challenge blocks to work on. I put one together yesterday afternoon and realized I did the math wrong. I drafted all the blocks to get the sizes everyone wanted but on one I used the finished dimensions instead of the cut ones. This always messes me up, and I love math. So I came out with a 4 inch block instead of a 6 inch and no extra fabric here. I also have been knitting and will post a picture of Lexi with her new cap soon.
A special note to Loose Threads: I am so sorry to have missed our group last night. Want you to know I thought of you and hope someone posts pictures of your projects. Let me know when we meet again.
Friday we are going to the Mid-Atlantic quilt show. I am so looking forward to this. Serena and her friend, Amanda, are going with me and they are in for a big surprise. They have no idea how big this show is going to be. They have never been to a show before, so they aren't really sure what I am dragging them too. Serena quilts and Amanda wants to learn. It will be great! I'll let you all know what they think.
