I love long weekends. If I was the queen of the world we would all have long weekends and only work 4 days a week. That would be heavenly. I wouldn't want to work four 10 hour days, just four 8 hour days! Long weekends are so nice to get something done for a change.
I went to two quilt shows, weeded my front flower beds, sewed a wool bag, which I can't show you because I think I'm entering it in the Wool challenge for my quilt guild in June. Tonight I made up a huge batch of laundry soap using Ivory soap, 20 Mule Team Borax, and Arm & Hammer Laundry Boost. I used the concoction tonight to wash a load of towels and so far I'm very pleased with the result. Plus, it costs about 5¢ per load -- can't hardly beat that!
I also sewed some of the scraps from Erica's wedding quilt. I bought a tiny 1 1/2" square up ruler
and used it Saturday for these blocks:
Ordinarily I would have thrown out the cutoffs from the blocks but this time I decided I needed to do something with them. They could be incorporated into the quilt or they could be their own mini-quilt, just a bunch of 1" finished squares. Hmmmmm.......
And this was what was leftover after the trimming:
And now I'm off to bed -- I need a good night's sleep before I head back to work in the morning. Back to the grind....
