A Quilty weekend

Well, Judy and I had a nice, relaxing weekend. Just last week, she messaged me and said, "Let's go to watch "Quilters" at the Amarillo Little Theater. Well, how could I say no? So, we left Sunday morning to attend the afternoon production. It was really nice. "Combining music, dance movement and scenes of vivid dramatic intensity, this play pays eloquent tribute to the courage and spirit of our pioneer women. Who would have thought that quilts, quilting and quilters had so much joy and pain, laughter and tears, so much life, beauty and drama in them?

Ostensibly the story of a pioneer woman and her six daughters, Quilters blends a series of interelated scenes in a rich mosaic that captures the sweep and beauty, the terror and joy, the harsh challenge and abiding rewards of frontier life. Illuminating stories contained in various patches or "blocks," the action depicts the lot of women on the frontier. Filled with love, warmth, rich and lively humor and the moving spectacle of simple human dignity and steadfastness in the face of adversity, this show promises to be a joyous theatre event for the entire family."
I took the preceeding from the theater's web page.

Here's another purse. It's for a birthday girl. I have been wanting to make a black and white purse for a while. I have enough fabric for another one so I may have to make one for myself. The first picture is the front of the purse.
This view is the back.
Here is the inside. I just couldn't resist using the large black and white print for the lining with the smaller dotted fabric for the pockets.

We were able to stop by and visit for just a few minutes with one of my favorite clients/friends. Good to finally catch you at home, Mary!

Dad did well while we were gone. I pray he can continue to do well.

We had a very nice evening tonight. Robert and April came over and brought pizza and chocolate chip cookies! I love those kids! lol April brought her scrubs and I sewed side pieces and hems to make them suitable for her last two months of pregnancy. Even if I do say so myself, they came out really cute. I hope I can get her to take some pictures of them. I think I'll have to return them to their regular scrub-like state once the baby's born.

Hi Veronica, look like you were busy! The "Quilters" sounds like i would like it too. I love that bag and the other projects. i don;t know if it's only me but I can't see Judy's Block picture. I don't know if it's because of the weather but i made cookies too! Maybe because it was snowing and I felt like it!
Happy sewing!
