Paula came to Florida last week so we could both attend the retreat at Camp Blanding. We worked really hard, planned a lot, sewed a bunch and laughed with good friends. Before we left for the retreat, Paula's sample yardage for her newest collection - Indigo and Claret - arrived at my house. This collection will ship in two parts, so we actually received the indigoes first. We've planned two quilt re-do's from the blues - James River Blues and Charlotte - so we spent some time at the retreat getting ready to piece both of them. AND that is what I will be working on tonight - all of the half square triangles that we need for James River Blues and the 4-patch strips! Perfect Opening Ceremony projects!
And because you really can't see much of the fabric, I thought I should at least share the actual fabrics! I love this new collection and I can't wait to see the Claret part - clarets, grays, blacks and some backgrounds. I think they will be in your lqs around September.
Next up for the weekend will be cutting the kits for our Fall Mystery Block of the Week program. The response has been great and I see a lot of cutting in my future! Remember there is a limited number of kits available, so if you are still interested in participating, order your kit now. Fall Mystery Block of the Week. The price is $59.00 plus shipping. Here are the details again and a look at the fabrics we will be using.

Enjoy your evening and weekend, whatever your plans! Personally, I don't think there's anything you would want do tonight besides watch the Opening Ceremony!! I'm looking forward to 21 days of Olympic fun and then it's time for the Closing Ceremony.
