Last Friday at sewing, after seeing Marg's quilt, Michelle and Helen decided they were going to make a "positive/negative 9 patch" quilt from their fabric club stash. They rushed down to the quilt shop and bought their backing fabric and there was lots of talk about how much free time each had over the weekend to make a start on it. There were definately competitive undertones in the conversation.
At sewing today, they were both there, with their Janome Gem's, furiously sewing away. The story eventually came out how the week transpired with lots of text messages to each other, checking to make sure that one hadn't done more than the other. It made for a very funny and interesting afternoon and I decided that I wanted in on the challenge.
I raced, with Helen, to the quilt shop on the way home, and purchased some background fabric. After tea, I hunted down just a small portion of my fabric club stash, and have made a few blocks already.
I would also like to brag that we have our first GOLD MEDAL at the Winter Olympics! Torah Bright brought home the Gold in the Womens' Snowboard Half Pipe and I am so proud! This is only the 4th gold medal Australia has ever won at the Winter Olympics. Congratulations Torah!!!
Have a great weekend everyone and to Michelle and Helen, let the Friday Girl Games begin!
