Diet Monday ...!

Well, it's that time of the week again. Not that I find those post amusing but, I guess it's part of the deal. And since I like to follow rules, well let's pretend that I do, I'm posting.

I don't have anything to report on that topic except that I had a wonderful weekend of beer and home made pizza. Yep, the beauty in all this is the fact that I'm oblivious to any weight I may have gained! Ignorance is bliss! ;o)

On the quilting front, I did have a date with Penelope today. I MADE myself do it. It had been way too long! Nothing special, a pantho for a charity quilt.

It's a gorgeous quilt! I love the pattern!

It was made by Sheila in Ohio. If you recall she sent me 3 (three) quilts to practice. This is the last one.

Thanks again Sheila for your kindness!

I want to show you a fabric that made quite an impression on me.

Jennifer found 3 (three) yards of this older fabric at a thrift shop. It's not the prettiest, but I tell you, the quality was amazing.

I have never seen a plaid fabric printed on such a straight grain as this one.

We all know how difficult it can be to work with plaids, I mean we all gave up on matching lines! Well, this one was printed so well that it lined up beautifully. I was in awe! They sure don't make/print fabric like they used too!

That's it for me except that I do want to say to my friends in Australia, I am in shock from the devastation. You are in my thoughts!

Beautiful, Carole! I love that panto, which one is it? I know exactly what you mean about plaids being straight, or not straight. ;~)

Darlene said...

Woohoo - time with Penelope!

Needled Mom said...

That is a great pattern and the colors look beautiful.

Plaids are a nightmare. I remember struggling trying to match them when sewing clothing. Ick!

Glad that you had a good weekend and some quality time with Penelope.

Quilt Hollow said...

Well I think your brave to post about your pizza and beer....it takes a real woman to "man up" and just put it on out there! Good for you!

But must comment on your lovely quilting! I'm so glad you are spending some time with your Penelope!! I check here often you know!

Yes it is a shock I remember last year with the fires this time it is worse.. they are saying that it is arson related!! dreadful!!

Sheila said...

Thanks for sharing, Carole. This is one of two quilts I don't have a picture of! You did a fantastic job. I'll keep you in mind for sending more when things are a little calmer around here.
