Well the week away allowed me to finish the blind stitching on the parrot quilt. I just need to add the borders and quilt them and it's done. I'm hoping to work on it this weekend.
I found some really nice fabric - butterflies in purples and blues. It's a large print and very pretty. It was 4 dollars a meter on sale so I picked up several meters - I'm looking forward to doing something with it at a later date.
