Friday we hiked. It. Was. Rough! My knees weren’t happy after doing Zumba on Monday and Wednesday, plus it was 87% humidity after raining the previous 2 days. Next week I’ll be heading out on my own while Mister runs the route.
After our showers we headed over toward ASU for Mister to pick up a study pack for one class and then to the art store for his supplies for this term. I found a white charcoal pencil for marking dark fabrics and some perma-ink pens for labels. I love finding quilt supplies at non-quilt stores.
Then we went to find the Farmers Market. Boy, was THAT a disappointment. It was a store. Granted they had items in there that were local (meats, dairy, eggs, vegetables, etc.) but still it wasn’t the actual vendors themselves. I felt cheated since the website made me feel that’s what I would find. I didn’t buy anything.
During our Friday lunch out, where I ate too much, I decided I was just too tired to go to the movies. I was actually afraid I might fall asleep so we came home instead.
I spent some time upstairs. I printed and cut out several Wild & Goosey patterns and the remaining patterns needed for my guild BOM Challenge. Then I managed to piece together another Wild & Goosey block.
Later that evening I finished my version of Lizzie Kate’s Cross-Stitcher in Residence. I haven’t decided how I’m going to finish it out, yet.
Saturday we headed out to see Guardians of the Galaxy and do a couple more errands. Came home to a good mail day. Two reams of newsprint for paper piecing (I now have 3 paper piecing projects going), Dear Jane Quilt book, and my one and only Market purchase, The Scarlett House’s Hannah’s Brownstone.
Dinner last night was a treat. Mister cooked omelets. Yummy, and no cooking for me.
This morning I decided to do my July Red Scrappy BOM Challenge block. If you look too close you can see the red smeared a bit on the white. Bummer, but I’ll live. There’s a faint red streak on the bottom of my iron plate that needs to be cleaned when it cools off.
The bulletin board over my laptop is looking very pretty.
The icing on the cake of my good weekend is dinner at some friends tonight to celebrate a birthday.
