Quilting, crocheting, and cross stitching in a weekend.

So I used up all my DMC 838 on this one and it still was not enough for a completion but here is how far I got. I did place an order with my floss mom so as soon as it arrives I'll pull this back out and finish it. The fabric is lighter than this picture, it looks so dark on here. Hmm must be the cloudy weather that's messing up my pictures.

I also crocheted this little Easter bag which was a freebie from Suzies Stuff. She posts freebie crochet patterns that she designs herself. She's a very talented lady.

And lastly for this weekend I pulled out my fabric for my friendship quilt and cut all the squares and then machined stitched the entire thing together. So here are pics of it so far. I laid it out on my side of the bed. We have a California King, just to give you an idea of the length of it. So now I pose a question to you all. Do I complete it as is or do I continue and make it larger? You see I don't know where exactly I am going to put it or what to do with it though I am loving the idea of having a quilt on my bed and whats better than one with a special stitched square from each of my stitching friends. Though the idea of being able to lay it over the back of my couch for all to see when they come over. So please give me your opinion. I am still doing the Fair and Square exchange as I do enjoy it.

DH got mad at me on Saturday as he saw me putting together my friendship quilt. You see back in 2005 I was crocheting him a Dallas Cowboys throw blanket but when the movers packed it and brought it here to Germany it wreaked of cologne. You see they won't ship cologne at all so I have no idea where this cologne would have come from. It smelled like someone broke a bottle in it and removed the broken pieces. And even with a good wash the smell was still there. It takes 3 months to get our things from Fort Bliss, TX to Bamberg, DE so I guess it had been on there pretty long. So anyway into the garbage it went sadly. SO DH wanted to know when I was going to make his blanket and was upset because I was doing all these other projects and never produced his blanket, LOL. He didn't mention it all these years so I thought he was no longer interested. I guess I was wrong. So payday I will be ordering some new yarn for him and work on it though I am wondering if I could quilt him one......

So how was everyone's weekend?

Oh, I'm so sorry you ran out of floss, darn it. Ah well, floss mom to the rescue. That is a hard decision you ask us for on your quilt because both ideas have lots of merit. After long thought though, I'm going for make it fit the bed. You can always drag it to the living room if you know somebody is coming over. Love the little pouch.

Sorry you ran out of floss but at least you got some on the way! That piece is really pretty and you have done an amazing job! I just love the Easter bag! That is so darling! The quilt is looking amazing! I would have a hard time deciding as well, but I think that I might go with the back of the couch so all could see. Whatever you decide, it will be awesome!! Also, can not wait to see the Cowboys when you get around to it for your DH. We love them boys!!
