Lazy Weekend

Handful of Scraps, quilts

What are you doing this weekend? I’m doing a little sewing and a lot of reading.  I saw a new Kindle book the other day that I got – I hadn’t seen anything from the author in a long time, maybe I had just missed them – a fun Victorian romance/mystery by Amanda Quick (aka Jayne Ann Krentz) one of my daughters and I used to read her books all the time – “Til Death Do Us Part” nothing deep, just amusing.  I hadn’t seen her books in years and must admit I had kind of forgotten her books.  I’m having a fun weekend reading this one.  It is new  – your library might have it – but I have some credit given to me by Amazon for some kind of screw up they did in overcharging I think so I have some ebook credit to use.

Early in the afternoon yesterday I finished the 13 blocks I had ready for the Butterfly Parade and have them up on the wall.  I am linking to SoScrappy today and Quilting is More Fun Than Housework.


It is kind of small still as you can see from a distance – the wall has plenty of space to fill in still.  But it is growing – square by  square.


Other than that I was basting some neutral hexies for Handful of Scraps and I will continue on that today for Slow Sunday Stitching with Kathy.

    From seeing everything that you did yesterday I’d not call it lazy 🙂

    We will have another day here over 90 degrees…just watered everything and felt hot already!

    I love a good lazy day! If it includes a little sewing, all the better! Your butterfly parade quilt is gorgeous now, and will be even more so when it grows!!

    I read Jayne Krentz under all her names.
    Pure popcorn! Enjoy

    Your Butterfly Parade quilt is very pretty. I’ve not seen that pattern before. Working on hexies is so relaxing and fun. Enjoy your slow stitching today.

    You have some wonderful projects going on and I look forward to your progress, enjoy your book.

    I love your butterfly parade quilt. The colors are pure joy.
    I’m working on getting a neglected flower bed cleaned out and since it gets mostly shade, I am transplanting some hostas in it. Just gave them a good drink of water and hopefully they will do well there.
    I received a credit also from Amazon to use. I think it was from a class action lawsuit over the way publishers were charging for books.

    Your butterfly parade quilt is so very sweet. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

    Butterfly Parade is lovely. Love the soft colors you’ve used. I’ve read a lot of Amanda Quick, as well as her books under other names. They are light, fun reading. Enjoy your slow stitching today.

    Both projects on your design wall look fantastic. Your diamond-shaped hexi project is the 2nd like that I’ve seen on blogs today. I find myself thinking this might be something I would consider tackling. I like the look, that’s for sure! I found you at Slow Stitching Sunday, and have enjoyed looking at the variety of hand work, yours included.

    I got back into the sewing room (finally) today and did some more piecing on my mini quilt. I had hoped to have all the sawtooth blocks finished, but I made (another) mistake with a couple of the neutrals that are somewhat similar to each other, so I decided that was my clue to call it a day.

    Thanks for the book recommendation. In the summer, I seem to prefer some light reading (what a former coworker called potato chips for the mind).

    Love her books, and your butterflies

  • Magpie Sue Jun 26, 2016

    Love the butterflies! It almost makes me want to do them for next year’s RSC (one of dozens of options mind you!). I’ve heard of Amanda Quick but I don’t think I’ve ever read her work. Are her romances clean?

    This is the first time I’ve seen your blog. Your butterfly quilt is so lovely with such a nice blend of colors. I also like the butterfly shape, better than most patterns I’ve seen. You seem to be getting a lot done. Glad I’ve found you on Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
