Saturday Sampler and Other Stuff

Yeah!!!  I’m on vacation!!!  I decided to take all next week off.  Monday is a holiday anyway so I only have to use 4 vacation days to get a nice long stretch off.  I started my vacation yesterday afternoon when I went stitching with the girls.  I brought Sail Away with me and made some progress on part 3.  I was so surprised at how small the person was.  Was some reason I pictured her bigger….  That’s the part I’m stitching right now.  I plan on going to my LNS, Where Victoria’s Angels Stitch, and I’ll bring my stitching with me.

This is where I am on Sail Away.  Not a great picture but you get the idea…

Last night after I got home I remembered that Saturday Sampler is this weekend at my local quilt shop, Kindred Quilts.  I finished up my August block.  The pieces went together pretty easily but the applique was a pain.  The template wasn’t the right size!  It was too short.  The trouble is that they don’t give you any extra fabric so there is no frogging…  Anyway, it came out okay and at least this means that I’m still caught up.  I think this week I’m going to do some quilting so I may start the Funky colorway which I LOVE.  I actually like the Funky colorway better than the Floral.  The Floral is the colorway that I’m caught up on.

Here’s my August block.  Lots of small pieces but that wasn’t too bad.
