We started off the weekend with watermelon margaritas:
2 cups frozen watermelon chunks
Juice of one fresh lime
3 Tbsp. frozen limeade concentrate
1 oz. Watermelon Pucker schnapps
4 oz. white tequila
handful of ice cubes (just add enough to get the right amount of slushiness)
Whir in a blender and serve in chilled glasses.
They were so good we had them again on Saturday evening.
The entire weekend wasn't spent drinking. On Saturday morning we hit up a few more quilt stores. I bought two charm packs of Moda's Celebrate Spring to make my Acorn Quilt & Gift Co. Meadow quilted table topper. The example on the pattern cover was made using Moda's Faded Memories charm packs - I think Celebrate Spring has very similar colors. I am planning on making mine square (so it's table topper shaped) so I'll need less charm squares then the pattern calls for.
I've never appliqued before so we'll see how that goes.
We spent the entire afternoon sewing. Rick was a really good sport about all the bits of fabric and loose threads that were floating around the house. We worked on two projects for Sara - a skirt and an apron. Man - the apron was tough. The instructions were incomplete or just plain missing steps and I think if Nicki's cooler head hadn't prevailed Sara and I would have just abandoned the entire project.
It was a perfect way to spend the weekend. Just the right amount of shopping, sewing, laughing and productivity. After a week of 30 (!) meetings - it was really needed.
