Vancouver 2010

The opening ceremonies last night for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver were inspiring. I liked the music. I also liked many of the countries team outfits. I took notes on some that I particularly liked to I could make some cards. I hope to get to that this afternoon. Stay tuned for the photos. Good luck to all athletes. My sympathies go to the country Georgia, and the family of the luge play that was killed while practicing.

A New Quilt

Earlier this month I joined a group through Facebook to make 9-patch quilt squares. Six people joined. I volunteered to do two squares so we would have more finished squares. Everyone else decided to do two as well. So when we swap we will each have two squares. That should be enough to make a crib size quilt. The fabrics chosen were white and a pastel print. I searched through my stash of fabric and chose a lavender print and a baby blue print. Each person sends two finished squares to all the others in the group. I mailed mine a week or so ago. Today I got my first set of two from one of the members. She used a green. It is super cute fabric. I am anxious to receive the other squares. They should be here with in the next two weeks. The deadline is March 1. I hope I get the squares sewn together soon so I have a quilt ready to quilt.
