The colors of my life

RED - Jason and I earned our Red Belts in American Freestyle Karate this weekend. If we stay on track, we should be Black Belts sometime next summer or fall. Woo hoo!

BLUE - The kids and I went to a birthday party for one of their friends this weekend, and the kids had a ball playing in the blue water of their backyard pool.

PURPLE - The color our hands were stained after picking blackberries in our yard on Sunday. Yum!

MULTICOLORED - After a busy day on Saturday (karate testing, an auction, a bday party and a baseball game), I was determined to stay home on Sunday. While putzing around my house, I found my way down to the sewing studio where I putzed around with some 1.5" scraps. Originally, I was going to make my name, but then I realized that the letters in ERIN are all in the word FRIEND, and I was moved to create that word instead. I've since added a border and hand-quilted it, and I hope to get a binding on tonight and send this off to one of my special friends who has been on my mind a lot lately. More photos when it is done. This could possibly be one of my fastest start --> finish projects EVER! Cool!
