First of all, I love my Singer 221 Featherweight sewing machine. We were lucky that our holiday travels only involved a few hours of driving and the featherweight traveled well.
During the drive, Howie helped me bind a quilt for one of my nephews.
I brought with me a charm pack of Bonnie & Camille's Marmalade and 42 5" Kona White squares. My sister-in-laws enjoyed learning how to make half square triangles using this method from Cluck Cluck Sew.
Howie enjoyed playing with the HSTs while I was squaring them.
This past weekend I spent some time and am about half way through putting together the Marmalade HST quilt top. The current plan is that this will serve as a quilt for the next niece born in the family. I'm excited that the girl will have a quilt that all of her aunts (and mom!) made.
Oh and in case you were wondering, the San Diego Zoo is fabulous! My husband and I enjoyed all of the animals, especially the leopard statue.
And the koalas were active! When we went a few years ago for our honeymoon, the koalas were sleeping. But this time...
I caught one leaping from the branches.
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!
