A Homemade Weekend

Is the weekend over already? And is tomorrow really Tuesday? Geez oh pete! Well, even though the weekend is over and the work week has begun, the Hubby and I are still feeling giddy about the fun, productive weekend we had. Both of us were immersed in our handmade with my sewing and him with his woodworking. (And don't forget the yummy homemade food that went along with the weekend).
On Friday I helped Dustin with the twin shelves he's making for our dining room. The weather was absolutely perfect for us to be out in the garage.Earlier in the summer we got beautiful new furniture (that came with not so beautiful throw pillows) so I covered them with Amy Butler's Nigella. They look A-mazing now.
Saturday morning was so relaxing. We've been able to open the windows for the past couple of days and sleep with the wonderful breeze coming in. When we awoke on Saturday, we found Kitty enjoying the breeze as well. Aren't those pillows amazing? There were two blocks from my quilt from A Notion or Two that were so delicatly made, that I couldn't bring myself to put them in the quilt that would be tossed around on our bed. So I made some beautiful throw pillows with them. This way we can enjoy the detail without worrying about messing them up.Chief wasn't quite ready to get up yet...until he smelled the bacon sizzling in the kitchen...because every Saturday morning should start with French Toast, eggs, and bacon.Later in the day I worked on some more sewing. I'm working on several gifts for the wonderful people in my life. Nothing makes me more happy than doing what I love for those that I love.I hope everyone else had a fabulous weekend. What special things did you do?

Fun - love all the productivity and that food is making me hungry! I love you Bible verse of the day - I have it on my living room wall (in those vinyl sticker things).

hey that's my block you made into a pillow!! What a great idea! I haven't done any smocking like that since. Maybe I need to do another.... Can't wait to see the finished quilt!

I think I need to come to your house for breakfast on Saturday!
