Yeah, almost

Just three small blocks to do at the bottom of Dresser Drawer Hearts and this baby is finished. And I'll finish those up tonight on the way home from work so tomorrow will bring a new start. :-) I have no idea what that is yet - I'll go stash shopping tonight after work. But like most of you I have plenty to pick from.

I had a great weekend. On Saturday the temps were in the upper 60s and it was so sunny! The pugs and I cleaned out the fish pond most of the day and now we can see them clear as day. They were so tired after all their hard work they didn't move all day on Sunday. I did however and did go for a Dim Sum lunch with friends. It was so much fun. The little bit of stitching I did on Saturday night was it for the entire weekend. But I find it's like that in spring and early summer. When it's still fun to be working outside and not the chore that it becomes later in the summer. :-) This Friday I'm taking the day off work and going to the International Quilt Show in Rosemont. It's so much fun even if I have to go by myself every year. I've been saving extra money to buy things and the only bad part of the day will be deciding which of the many, many things I want to buy. I can't even plan ahead because every year it's something that I don't expect to buy that temps me. Although I'm already thinking that maybe this is the year to buy the Big Board. It's always discounted at the quilt show and there is no shipping to pay for so the savings is huge. And I've wanted one for years!

Enjoy your week and tune in tomorrow to see what I've started. :-)

I love the dresser drawer pattern. It looks like a fun stitch. I am also very intrigued by the Big Board. Space is at a premium in my little stitching room and that sounds like it would be so helpful. Thanks for sharing.

Nice WIP! I looooove Dim Sum! Lucky you! Have a great time at the quilt show. I want to go to the local one when it happens. I haven't been to a quilt show in ages!

You are right, the weather is too nice for stitching right now. There will be plenty of time when summer humidity hits. I can't wait to hear your report of the Quilt temptation show. Shopping is always fun.
