How do Quilters spend the weekend?

I used to teach five days a week, now I teach two.  Yes, it is lovely.  I teach on Mondays and Wednesdays so theoretically, my weekends start right after my second class. But I don't consider the weekend to be starting until I am done with my Aqua Exercise class on Thursday. 

I think of my weekends as being Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  When my daughter was unemployed, we all really wanted her to find a teaching job, which she did.  But to make the unemployment seem more fun, we had Adventure Friday, my daughter, my sister and I would go to various places in Chicago.

This past Friday, my sister and I kept up the tradition and went to the city, meeting at the Art Institute.  We wanted to walk from there to Millennium Park but the street was closed down because the President was in town.  We walked out the door of the Art Institute and watched his motorcade go by minutes later.  I am pretty sure he mouthed, "Good job on those quilts" as he sped by.

We also went over to Cloudgate, better known as The Bean.  I am trying to think of a way to incorporate it into a quilt.  I just love it.

Saturday was St. Patrick's day and my husband and I had ourcard group here for a Irish themed card night.

What fun just to set the table!

As if this wasn't enough excitement, my knitting group met here on Sunday.  It had been a while since we had met so I was the only one who did any knitting, we had so much talking to do.  Yes, as a matter of fact it is hard to knit something tricky and talk!  But I knit because I needed help big time and my friends are awesome knitters.

I bet you didn't know how wild Quilter were on the weekend.  Wait, you haven't heard about the trip to the Art Institute, that is a whole blog entry unto itself!

Tomorrow:  Quilter weekend part two!
