It's a wonderful day today, with only -5 degrees. The sun is shining, and it looks great with all the snow. Perfect for my two youngest and their snowboards :o) They went with my brother and his boy, to the alpine center just half an hour drive from us. I hope they will have a great day (it's the first time they are going there). Hope they'll take some pics to show me :o)
They have been training at a small apline center near by, so they really looked forward to go to the "big hills" today. Hubby was supposed to go with them too, but his back is still killing him, so he just have to stay home:o( Guess the kids will spend the whole day there, so I'll be having some sewing time today.
My focus project this weekend is a quilt I started on back in June 2009, the pattern was released at Moda Bake Shop, and I just fell in love with it. It's called "Irish chain".
All the "flower" blocks are finished long ago, so it's only the ones between I need to work on. A bit of puzzle work, but fun! I wish I had some of the fabrics used in the original quilt, they are so beautiful! But I found some fabrics similar in colors, and I think they work all right.
I am working with 2" strips, instead of 1,5" like the pattern says. This way it "grows" faster, and I want to make a lap quilt instead of a baby quilt first. I have the same fabrics precut in 1,5" strips too, so I will also make the baby quilt later:o)
Wish you all a great weekend,
