After the Stars Quilt

After being so focused on finishing my Stars Quilt I plan to get back to some of my other projects on the weekend.

Yesterday and today though are all about music exams for two of my boys. I took Mr 13 to Dubbo for his trumpet exam yesterday. He was not disappointed about missing a day of school. We went to Spotlight to get some fabric for a cushion for his Yr 7 textiles class. I was a bit surprised - very black and white.

I couldn't leave this on the shelf, navy on white.

I haven't sewn clothes for years and years, but I have been wondering whether I should get back into it. Some of the dress patterns were 40% off, so for $12 I got two, a skirt and a dress. I figure at that price it's not the end of the world if they don't get made. I might end up looking like I'm wearing a quilt.

A saxophone exam for Mr 11 today, and then a blissfully empty Saturday in front of the fire I hope - shhhhhhh don't tell anyone.

Hope you're having a fun week (and keeping warm).
