Design Wall Monday - CW Quilt

I really didn't get much sewing done on my CW quilt this past weekend.  
I did make a Lemon Meringue Pie. Yum.
And got the car wash - got a little wet.
And did the laundry - so I won't be miss stinky.
Took hubby to the movies - where he took a nap.
Rescued my daughter when her car broke down - Nothing like having Mom & Dad & the checkbook come to the save the day.
And helped at the church Nursery School - No one cried. YEA!
And played catch with the cutest rough and tumble little boy - my little grandson.
  I do have a little bowl full of applique flower finished. I sure hope there will be enough!
And I experimented with my vines.  I've always heard that they have to be cut on the bias. I have a bunch of strips cut on the straight away - (hey, I bet that's called something else) anyway, I practiced curving them, and stitched them down.  See..
That looks like it's going to work.  It curved just fine and lays flat.   So I'll use up those extra strips.  Unless - anyone knows some other reason I shouldn't use these strips?

  And lastly, Mark didn't do anything on his quilt.  I did go down and buy some fabric to separate some of those blocks.  

I'm linking up with Design Wall Monday over at Patchwork Times

Happy Stitching,
Nicey Linda
