Day 4, Thursday, was slotted to be Shopping with Eleanor Day. My friend Eleanor is the queen of shopping and bargain hunting and I anticipated a grueling, yet rewarding day of clothes shopping. You never know what you are going to find when you shop with Eleanor! Unfortunately, Eleanor had to cancel. So instead, I allowed myself two errands in the morning (one must not do too many errands on staycation!): purchase printer ink (long overdue) at Staples, and a brief trip to Joann Fabrics for polyester fiberfill and pillow forms. Then I headed back to the Studio for a few hours of bonus sewing.
|Mike and I fortified ourselves with some sushi on Thursday night before we headed to the grocery store to stock up for our party. Mike ate EVERYTHING shown on that platter.|

Saturday morning, I finished Logan's Scottie dog. Sewing in the gusset, which makes the dog three dimensional, was a wee bit challenging. Actually sewing in the first side was tough, but for some reason, sewing in the second side was easier. The charm squares came from an ancient Millennium fabric swap from 1999. I decided to stop kidding myself that I would make a quilt out of them. Don't worry, I have enough squares left to make 101 Scottie dogs.
|I wonder what Logan will name his new friend.|

I have finished half of my Scrap Wave quilt. I promised myself that I would make a scrappy back or even another scrap quilt for the back of this quilt. It will not even make a small dent in my batik stash.

By the end of my staycation, I had finished almost half the blocks for Susan's quilt. I calculated that I need 240 blocks to make it king size. Although I'm sure the finished quilt will be lovely, the blocks are kind of boring to make.
|This is a good project to work on with a friend. Mindless sewing with minimal room for error.|
Have a great weekend!
