Quilt progress, embroidery project, new page and a card game review

I finished quilting the monster quilt yesterday and now I’ve gotta trim and measure it to make sure I have enough binding. I hope to get the trimming done tonight and make any extra binding that I might need.

Yesterday I had a few designs to stitch out while I worked on some other things.  Here is one of them for Towel Day:

I love Douglas Adams and my husband is a huge fan too so I wanted to make a towel for him using the free design offered by Urban Threads for a limited time! It came out very cute. He told his co-worker about it and now she wants one.

I’ve been working on a page that has all the links to supplies and places I commonly order things from so I can share that with my quilting and sewing friends! I always try to get the best bang for my buck. It’s been trial and error but I’ve found some good deals and it’s nice to have them all in one place. I hope you find it useful!

Over the weekend some of our friends introduced us to a new card game called Fluxx.  Have you played it? It’s a little crazy learning how to do it the first time but after that you’ll be going like gangbusters.  It’s like uno on steroids.

Ringo particularly likes it because the rules can change to immediately screw up other players and enrage them! We played it Friday night and  went out and bought a pack of cards to play with our other friends on Saturday. They loved it too. I was lucky and found the last pack of the original set at Barnes and Nobel. If you love card games with friends get this one!
