This weekend

I've spent most of this weekend sleeping off a three day migraine.  I am not sure what triggered it: perhaps tension, maybe salt or could it have been that chocolate bar?  I'll never know, but I did get some sewing done since my last post.
I chose some fabrics from my stash to finish the last round of the Lisa Bongean Vintage Nine project I'd started a couple of years ago.
Ta-da.  Finished stitching on the last row at Thimbles last Friday.
I think I will use this limey green and tan brushed cotton check for the backing.
Mary Ellen Von Holt from Little Quilts visited Thimbles; she had some charm packs of Curio by Moda's Basic Grey . Seriously yummy.  I bought all four charm packs, and, since I love the Vintage Nine pattern so much, I started a new one yesterday.
Never mind it has taken me three years to NOT finish the first one.
I just needed to stitch, and I already had a pack of coordinating wool bits for the flowers. It made sense to me at the time.
And I spied this pattern on a website (scroll down the page to see it); just had to have it.  Don't you know I cannot wait to start it.  Hey, what about my UFO list for guild?  Shoot!  I will have to make a list of priorities.
Little Jojo doesn't have a problem setting priorities.  He plays hard and just crashes whenever and wherever he needs to. That's what I call freedom.

Love how your quilt came out and love the backing, will be nice and soft. I need to piece more, and use the machine more, then I might get some larger ones done. No power today, so using the generator to run a few things;)

I love your Vintage 9-Patch! Have you ever heard of the Joe Grey (cat) Mysteries by Shirley Rousseau Murphy? I enjoy reading them. Yep, JoJo sure sounds like a Russian Blue to me...just like Earl. My Earl likes to play "fetch" like a dog (loves orange golf practice balls) and he can say his own name "rrrrrl".
