The Weekend So Far

My poor hubby has to work this weekend, which means I actually have my weekend to sew.  Usually the weekends are his days off and so I don't get much done in the sewing room.  Don't get me wrong, I wish he had the weekend off since it is turning out to be nice and sunny and warm out.  But, since he works, I get to try and finish the Pink Overload so I can get it ready to quilt next week.

This one will go in my Etsy shop for 45 days, the if it doesn't sell I'll gift it to the person that called dibs the minute she saw a picture of where I was with it on Wednesday.  I'm thinking one more checkerboard border then a wide border.  I'm at 61.5 inches by 58.5 inches right now, so after I'm done with the borders I have planned it should be a nice bed sized quilt.

You can also sort of see from the above picture my new workspace that hubby had a friend haul home for me.  I LOVE it.  No more walking back and forth to the bedroom to lay things out on our bed!

Below is a bonus picture of my daughter.  We are both huge Sci-Fi fans, that explains the shirt.  She has about 100 "nerd" tee shirts. :D  She titled this picture "Let's be bad guys."  A famous Jayne quote, I guess.

Hope everyone else is having a lovely weekend, whatever you are doing!
