Tidbits from my weekend

I had a very nice weekend, which included a haircut, a quilt guild meeting, and lots of time sewing with my friends.

Letter from Lotta Quilt - nearly finished

I had hoped to have this quilt finished to show you today but I'm still finishing the last of the binding.  It will be my last finish for the 2013 Finish Along.  Are you ready to link up your projects?

Knit fabric

I also went shopping for fabric to make my Ruby Dress. I wasn't actually terribly successful on the dress fabric shopping, but this lovely knit caught my eye and I had to get a metre of it.  I think I'll just sew it up into a simple cowl, and it will make a lovely soft spring scarf.

I haven't tried sewing with knit yet - I like your idea of a cowl though ... it would be a simple project to experiment with. Looking forward to seeing your finished quilt :)

It sounded like a lovely weekend you had.. I love new haircuts, it lifts up mood. How was your new haircut? By the way, the quilt is looking stunning. Hope to see the finished soon. Thank you for linking up to Littlemushroomcap Weekend Do.
