My Weekend Stimulus Package!

The weekend is almost here! I don't know about you but last weekend was busy with Father's Day and went by so fast I didn't feel like I had a day off from work at all! So, fingers crossed, my plan for this weekend is to go visit my sewing room and see what I can get accomplished. I do get distracted in there and I can't get through one project fast enough before my mind starts thinking about the next one. That seems to be an on-going problem.
Am I alone with this?

Today I decided to pick a favorite blog of the week. A Quilting Life is a blog that I have followed for quite some time and Sherri is an endless source of inspiration for me.
When I started my blog I was more than thrilled when she started commenting on what I was doing. Sherri is such a talented, enthusiastic and a very creative quilter.

... and a look at my Fig Tree "turnover" quilt that is waiting for me to finish hand sewing the binding on it. Then it's off to the shop for display! I am anxiously waiting for the next FT project which will be the sample for the Fig Tree Club's "first" project (it's going to be a lap quilt)!
Have you seen the picture of it yet on Joanna's blog?

This photo is for Angela, who was my pincushion swap partner. I made a matching pincushion for myself.
Along with it is my steal of a deal that I found while on vacation last week. A Brenda pattern... and it was on sale... I can't even tell you how much I paid, just in case they change their minds and come after me!

Have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Your Fig Tree quilt is gorgeous! And I love the pincushion you made *almost* like mine! :o) I really enjoy seeing the same pattern (as in the pincushion) done different ways, it is amazing what a change of fabric can do! Thanks for the pic!
