Stopping in for a Visit . . .

It was a busy weekend of chores, as so many of my weekends seem to be.  I feel like I used to have more play time.  I know working out has cut into my time, as has meal planning, so maybe that explains it a bit.  Nevertheless, I've done a little bit of stitching last week and this weekend, so I thought I'd share with you what I'm up to.

A friend and I have started a new applique project, Grandma's Kitchen.  The pattern is by Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet.  Here's a photo of the pattern--

I finished my first block, the apron block.  We've decided to use mostly 30s fabric/colors for our version.

Next we'll start on the block with the pitcher of lemonade.  The other project I completed is a version of a pattern by Kimberbell called Too Fa-boo-lous.

Also in the last week or two, I've prepped the applique for the Country Houses quilt, but there's still a lot of actual sewing to be done.

So that's what I've been up to.  How about you?
