The weather forecast for today was right on and was it ever beautiful. There was not a cloud in the sky, it was warm, but not hot, no humidity, and there was a gentle breeze. A person could not ask for a more beautiful day.
Today's block was easy peasy. I think it took me a total of 20 minutes to cut and piece it which means a small quilt could easily be made in a just a few hours. I almost made two of them just to see what they would look like when you put them together, but then I decided not to overdo it. The Minnesota State Shop Hop started this weekend and we took a drive to a shop that I love that is a little farther away. I usually try to make it to the ones in my section, but I don't always get to all of them. I decided this year I might just try to make it to the ones I rarely get to or the ones that are my favorites. I'll let you know how far I actually get in the next three weeks.

On the stash report, I purchased 2-1/2 yards today of a fabric I have been looking for for a very long time. It is an orange Robert Kaufman Mixmasters Fizz. If you know of a shop anywhere that carries that line of fabric, I would love to know. I have quite a few of them to find and it has been near to impossible. I'm back to work tomorrow after a lengthy vacation. I'm rested, I didn't finish anything I had planned to, and I was just pretty lazy. I did realize that sometimes rest is a good thing. Our bodies will always let us know when it has been too much, and mine finally did. Happy Stitching!! --Kristen
