    It is a lovely sunny day here in Birmingham, UK, and I am really looking forward to the weekend because

    a) I just got paid
    b) The weather is supposed to stay nice
    c) I have sewing and shopping planned

    Tonight - straight home after work, a glass of vino, laundry and a bit of tidying up.
    Tomorrow - an early start, then grocery shopping, going to the sewing machine shop to get denim needles, checking out the charity shop for cheap denim to buy (planning to do a denim rag quilt). go to the market for my meat and veg. Then an afternoon of sewing, and then a relaxing evening in with my fella.
    Sunday - Lazy morning with my fella, read the papers, have a nice breakfast. Then will pop over to Mom and Dad's for a quick visit, then not much else for the day....more sewing, bit of housework, maybe doing the ironing. Roasting a chicken for the cats because it is their birthday (2 yrs old)

    So I was wondering if you are all also looking forward to the weekend? I'd love to hear what you are all doing?

    Loretta have we seen this surprise? You know we have to approve.

    My DD just turned 21 on Weds and we are having a party out at out camp. So it is prep and camp for me.

    I'm putting the 2 borders on my DN's Graduation quilt. Top should be finished on Sunday. Then it's onto the frame for some real fun! :)

    Way too much...Tomorrow is my dad's birthday and my parents anniversary, but we're celebrating tonight because today is also my fiance's very last day of college (hopefully!). Then tomorrow I have a bridal shower to go to and a bachelorette party. Sunday another bridal shower. And hopefully somewhere in there I'll get some quilting done. I at least have to finish a table runner before dinner tonight.

    This is a UFO weekend for me. It means that my group of quilting friends from church descend upon the music room and take it over for our quilting!!! We are there from 5-11 (or 12) tonight and 9-3 tomorrow. I have today off of work, so I am going to get some backs done so that tonight DH and I can go over to the church to the tables set up and sandwich 4 quilts. I may not start quilting them at the church cause it is easier for me to work on them at home since my sewing machine sinks into my desk and I have a nice large flat area to work on. I may bring the embroider unit and work on the labels for these for quilts. I love UFO weekends!!! It's friends, quilting, food, quilting, talking, quilting, sharing of ideas and projects!!!

    Last weekend 6 of us went on the Central Coast Quilt Run. We hit 14 quilt shops in 2 days. 11 of them on Friday. We had the greatest time!

    Not a blessed thing! After a full month of something every weekend, I can finally relax. Oh wait, we're thinking of getting two of the grandsons...No relaxing for me, but plenty of hugs, kisses, and laughter.

    What a wonderful weekend you have planned! Sounds like fun. I'm finishing up some work stuff and then I'll tackle the laundry I've let slide. Always time for sewing though. Sunday, we'll have the boat on the lake. Hopefully, I won't get brave and try a turn on the tube. I think hubby has it out for me! :roll: I should stick to water skiing.

    This weekend will be very busy for us!

    Saturday morning hubby will drop me off in the village so that I can go to the annual village Sidewalk Sale while he goes to the Farmer's Market to do our shopping. Hopefully I will find some good bargains!

    Saturday afternoon I will be out buying materials for Sunday's Big Project, which is:

    Building our chicken coop!

    We have 25 young chickens that I got as 1-day-old baby chicks 6 weeks ago. They've been living in a pen in our garage ever since, and now it's finally time for them to move outside! Some friends are coming out to our place to help us build a coop for them.

    I hope the rain stays away for us!

    I'm stripping :lol: Okay, okay, I'm stripping my porch furniture. I got my mom's old porch furniture and it's redwood that she painted over (and over and over). Then I get the "joy" of weeding my garden, cleaning my house, doing laundry and then if I have time ]I'll get to quilt :D[

    I work this weekend. Poor me :cry: :cry: :cry: Oh, I can't cry because I go back to work after four days off. I got some quilting done so it's been good. I have to go the work to pay for the fabric I bought today. :-) :-) :-)
