It has been such wonderful weather in Minnesota this week. It was 40 degrees the other day. Went on a couple of outings with Hubby since it was such awesome temps and "sunshine." Sunshine has been sadly lacking for a long time this winter. I feel for everyone in the bad weather areas, especially since we have been having such mild weather.
Only attended one quilting event this week. On Monday, we had Sew-Sew Monday at the LQS. There was a fun quilt show during lunch time. Two of the ladies, Bonita and Mary, had each bought three yards of the same fabric. They challenged each other to make a quilt using the fabric and keep it secret from each other. Well, on Monday they brought their completed quilts. Oh, how different they are and how much fun to see how they utilized the same fabric.

I spent a lot of the week cutting out all of Bonnie Hunter's "Grand Illusion". Since I will be going on retreat, it is nice to have the whole thing cut and ready to sew. All the pieces are separated with directions into the five parts so that I do not get them mixed up. Wouldn't it be nice if I could get all the pieces sewn during retreat?

Did not finish any projects this week but did purge and donate one UFO. It was a hand applique project started about 15 years ago. I donated five completed blocks, fabric, and book with patterns to a very nice friend who took it off my hands. WooHoo -- one project that will no longer guilt me because it is not completed.
Besides purging a UFO, I have been combing my stash for fabric to make pillowcases for our guild service project. The pillow cases are cut and ready to sew. Hoping to have a lot of usage to report next week.
