Ready for the Weekend!

Woke up to the sad news that UGA Vll died last night. He was only 4 years old. My boys just went to a game and Cade got to see him and talked about how cute he was.

Well, I put my 9 patches aside and started cutting a new quilt! I sewed on and off all day long!! It is a simple Sawtooth Star quilt. The fabric is so pretty! It is called House by Annette Tatum. I will take some pictures when I get more done. I bought the fabric this summer after seeing a really nice quilt on SewMommaSew. With a daughter in college, I have tried to cut back on my fabric purchases. I bought several 1/2 yards of the collection. Knowing that it was probably my last "big" fabric spend for awhile makes it even more special. I havent decided yet what amount will be a "little" spend!!Thanks for all of ya'lls advice! I will finish the 9 patch later on. NO GUILT!!

We have no big weekend plans. A family birthday party Saturday night and that is it!! Kelsey isnt coming home this weekend so that will lighten my laundry!! Cade is out of school all next week. I really hope to just stay around the house, watch the UGA Bulldogs and sew!

I hope that you all have a great weekend! Thanks for making my first weeks of blogging so much fun!! Libby
Here is Ruby ready for the weekend! We heat her towel up in the dryer for her to lay on...

That is so sad that at 4 the little bulldog passed away :(

YAY for the new quilt. I can't wait to see it. Ruby is doing what cats do best on that warm towel.

Hope you have a great weekend.♥

Put a warm towel on me, and I'd be in la la land too!

So sad about the dog. Andrew had one of the English bulldogs and he just loved him.

How exciting for you to start a new quilt! I have a million of them going at once! :( It may take me a while to get them done but they do eventually get finished!

Ruby and Donkey need to date! :)
