Ditto, I agree on Calico Hutch. Its very much worth the drive no matter where you are in Iowa. They have a website with some great pictures on it. You all should ck it out. Rhonda

Well, lets see..
This weekend, my grandsons are coming over sometime tomorrow to spend the night. We will probably play games, maybe make some cookies or something. My oldest grandson wants to make a blanket for his dogs and his Aunt's dog, so we might work on that. And hopefully cut some squares, so they will be ready to go! I also need to get some big envelopes to mail the squares in. Maybe put some more quilt squares on my page, and maybe even get sprung from jail!
Sounds like I will be busy. Have fun, everyone!

Thank you everyone for the input. I think I can convince him to wait a week-it's worth it! We're supposed to have perfect weather tomorrow, so if we just get out and about he should be content. I found Calico Hutch on the internet....looks wonderful. Thanks again!!!

I haven't really made any plans for this weekend. We'll probably go visit our daughter and her family sometime. I do plan to finish cutting out my 6" squares for the group project. I had to run down to the quilt shop for some fabric today. I only live seven blocks from the quilt shop - how great is that! I had a mishap with my rotary cutter. I took off a bit of my finger. Never had that happen before. My husband said I need to buy that glove that Fons & Porter always wear when rotary cutting. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

I have to agree that the Calico Hutch will be a shop to remember. Anyone who goes there is bound to find plenty to keep them busy. I feel fortunate to live only 30 miles away. I even ventured out on a very blustery winter day to get there for no special reason. It was worth braving the weather. Add it to your itinerary when you can.

Lisa - My hubby is a ceramic tile installer and carpenter. He does beautiful work and is very interested in quilting and colors. He has used some of my quilt patterns in his ceramic tile layouts. He has said the same thing as your dad - not much difference between putting wood together and putting quilt blocks together. LOL

Lisa - our student is also through Rotary - from Slovakia. Will yours be going to the retreat in Oklahoma in a couple of weeks?

I'll be at work (retail...) this weekend, but maybe when I go to watch the game Sun. after work I'll take my featherweight and sew while visiting with my folks...I don't think that would be too rude...they're crafty people (my dad even took up quilting these last couple years - he's 78, always built stuff, and once mom got into a huge mess off health issues, he decided he might as well join me in my passion! What's so different from cutting wood and putting it together, and cutting fabric?!) Now I can hardly wait to go! Also, Tammy, we have an exchange student, too! Fede is here from Argentina with Rotary, meanwhile my oldest daughter is in Argentina this year! (She has a blog if anyone is interested...)

I took a class on Ricky Timm's Convergence a couple of years ago. It was really fun and easy when you get the hang of it. I even made another one a while later, so what I learned must have "stuck" on my teflon brain. You will enjoy it. Have fun!
