Slacker Weekend

This was a busy weekend. Not too busy on the quilting front, but a busy one. Friday night I managed to get a little farther into the "GP" quilt. They no longer look like granny panties, right? You can see that they are a stack of pumpkins, hopefully. Sometimes when I draw things, they don't always look like what they were suppose to be. Just know, these are pumpkins.
I've added leaves and vines and when I'm finished quilting, I'll add some button berries to the vines.

Saturday, my BFF's parents were celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. I found a vintage hanky in my linen stash. This one was meant to be, because it had a "R" already embroidered on it. Why did I buy it? No reason, I just collect initials, they can come in handy in times like this.
So I sketched out an oval, drew in a few numbers. Quilted it up ( just before the party, because I'm a slacker) and voile, an heirloom gift that you know nobody else will be bringing.

I forgot to take a picture when I finished. I was in such a hurry to get to the party in time that I had to take a picture at the party. Hopefully I've learned my lesson and will stop being a slacker.
So with that thought, I'm going to leave you now and go attack the pile of laundry that I've put off till I'M wearing the granny panties!

Take care, Brandie

Well for a slacker, you sure get a lot finished. Your gift is truly an heirloom, how thoughtful of you to share. And your granny panties, lol, cuteness! I'm trying to hold back on starting anything new (even though I have one now that is really pulling at me). I have some projects which needs tending before I can do anything else new. I can't manage to keep up with you!
