I'm continuing to work on Going Rouge and have now finished all six of the Sugar Bowls. Here are three of them. Still to come are Cake Stand (I'm cutting them today) and Simple Flower Basket. I had thought that this quilt would take a long, long time to make (and perhaps it will!) but it is going together pretty smoothly. Sometimes I lose track of which is background and which is basket when I'm working with the fabric. I'm not too alarmed at that since every block is different.
The Rouenneries fabric has a very pretty selvedge and I've cut and saved them from all of the FQs that I'm using for the baskets. I'm not a selvedge person, but I know there are those of you who are doing things with selvedges and if you are one of those people and would like to have mine when I am all finished with this project, let me know and I'll send them off to you. First to claim them gets them.
The shower for Amy was a big success. It was fun to work together with her Mom on this project. Everyone was so generous; Amy and Andrew received a marvelous assortment of gifts including some amazing Calvin Klein onesies, a couple of gorgeous crocheted shawls, and a hand-crafter Minkie bear and many, many other things.
No one felt like cooking dinner last night so we went out with A&A and Amy's parents for a delicious dinner at CinCin and then came home and fell asleep in front of the Olympics. The kids left for home after breakfast this morning and I've been doing laundry, piecing blocks, and making turkey soup with the Olympic events on in the background.
Truly a nice, nice weekend.
