Catching Up

I have been pulled away from my usual routine. Hubby had some issues with medication that caused an emergency trip to hospital but home and improving now so thought I would post Pics of what is in progress at the moment.
I spent many hours last week preparing blocks for Princess Tea Party kit that I started in July at The Sweet Retreat in California.
I found that watching episodes of "24"on Netflix helped to make the process more interesting. Really getting into that series..did't follow it when it was a regular series but really hooked now.
I have completed the "stacked cups" block and ready to move onto the next one. Did I mention that this is just the blocks from Section one!!!!!! Still have to prepare section two and three...I think one will keep me busy for quite some time. Will post my progress.

I also just finished piecing a cute table runner for my entry hall table using Sew Cherry (again!). Pattern was from Love of Quilting magazine may/june2011. Designed by Darlene Zimmerman called Sweet Pickin's.
I will keep the quilting simple and minimum so it can be finished fast.

Son and daughter-in-law have arrived for a visit from Norway, very happy to see them. Lots of good family time is planned.
Next week is a big birthday week. Mine, daughter-in-law and son all next week. So happy to be able to share birthday time with them. Party, Party, Party! :-)

Have a good weekend out there.
