Whew! What a busy weekend. Course, when I think about it, not too much was accomplished.
In fact, I even missed some important To-Dos. Like get my Babydoll’s gym suit for school. Yikes. She had to go to school today in her regular clothes and a note apologizing. Oh, I feel like a horrible mom!!
But who am I kidding? With two growing kiddies, there’s not a lota room for hangin’ about.
What I did do on Saturday was go visit the local Irish Patchwork Society. The meeting was in a town north of Dublin on the ocean front, so the girls and I made the train trek up there and I scurried off to the meeting while Babydoll and Cutiepie played in the park with the au pair.
It was nice. I even joined in membership. And I came home with inspiration and project ideas. The membership meets once a month and there is a patchwork library and vendors on site. A win/win in one!
One idea, free to take home, was a patchwork advent calendar for coming Christmas. I loved it; very simple and doable. However, the last detail is to put numbers on the pockets. Does anyone have a quick cute way of adding numbers to a quilt work? I’m trying to keep it simple, would consider appliquéing fabric numbers to the pockets… Any ideas out there?
