PAJAMA DAY - yippee

7:00 a.m. Good morning!!!! It's pajama day at our house - no getting dressed all day long...

Thank goodness no rule against quilting.

Plenty of turkey left for sandwiches.

I can't wait...........

10:00 update: I just finished the quilting on this little whole-cloth with trapunto that I started yesterday at class... just needs binding now! This is my first use of wool batting - oh is sews up nicely!



And I put DH to work arranging some "I Spy" blocks for a charity quilt! He is enjoying doing this (wonder if he wants to cut some strips?)



.............more pajama day to come!

6:30 pm. PAJAMA DAY NEARS AN END
The afternoon was very relaxed, but a lot got done:
These HST's are for Clue 2 of Bonnie Hunters's mystery quilt:
This basket of strings came from a bin of scraps: and then became a bunch of string blocks:
And I discovered that my cactus is preparing to bloom - a lovely yellow bud:


The quilt DH arranged and selected the border for is a completed flimsy now - this will go to the Bumble Beans Quilt Gathering when it is sandwiched and quilted..

What a great Pajama Day - and I didn't once stress over the laundry or other household chores... wearing pajamas somehow wards off reality...
Back to work tomorrow - what a great holiday weekend this has been!
Happy Quilting and Pajama-Wearing, Everyone
Kate

Awwww Pyjama Day! I think we need a tradition like that in our house - the only problem is that my grotty teenagers dont get out of their pjs from Friday night till Monday morning if they are not going anywhere!
Love the idea of a whole day ralxing and sewing though. Love your blog - it is a great read! Keep on quilting and blogging please
