Relaxing Weekend

Hello and happy week-end! I am so glad this week is over .. sometimes it feels like the short work-weeks last longer than the regular ones!

This is the hubster's weekend to work so not a whole lot going on ... going out to dinner with the neighbors and while at the store yesterday bought a bottle of wine ... sounds like a good evening!

So i just made a chocolate cake and some homemade chocolate frosting for hubby to take to work tonight and while i was rinsing the dishes the most wonderful smell of rain came thru the kitchen window so i decided i'd do a lil post with some fall stuff.

Last night i dug out my fall quilt and threw it over the doesn't really match the curtains now, so i'm thinkin it's time for some different curtains for the seasons ;o) This morning i've been working on making some pinwheel blocks using the below fabrics...i'm testing out the way Vickie makes them in THIS tutorial before i do them in a large quilt which i plan to give as a gift. The tutorial says something about leaving bias edges so i figured i better make sure i know what i'm doing. This will probably be just a table topper or small throw.

When it comes to running out of bobbin thread, it NEVER fails to happen at the worst time for me! But check this out ... this is what was left when i finished one of my squares ... WHEW!
Have a great weekend!

I had the same thing happen with my bobbin thread the other day! I had about an inch or two left. I was shocked it didn't run out in the middle like it normally does! LOL
