Eclipse and Oklahoma!

Hey there, friends!  It's been a great week around here, including a solar eclipse day trip.  Though we worried about cloud cover in central Arkansas (only about 2.5 hours from us), we ended up with lovely weather and four full minutes of totality.  Though my son and I traveled to Paducah for the eclipse in 2017 (with my mom and grandmother), my husband was on a work trip and missed that one.  So, a total solar eclipse was a new experience for him, as well as for my son's girlfriend, who also came along with us on Monday.  Even though I experienced the 2017 eclipse, this one was no less amazing.

And now, at the time of posting, I'm actually on my way to visit Bartlesville, Oklahoma.  No sewing this week, but plenty of other great things going on.

So, let's go ahead and check out a few highlights from last week's party.  Deb at A Scrappy Quilter showed off this finish-

This pretty quilt is from Gretchen's Little Corner-

Check out this awesome purple quilt from Something Rosemade-

And finally, I love this scrappy quilt from Maggie at Making a Lather-

Okay, friends!  Let's get our party going!

*If you're new to the party, here's a helpful tip for linking up- select "Auto Crop"  when selecting your thumbnail photo.  For some reason, trying to crop your own image results in the dreaded "white question mark box," and we definitely want to see your awesome work!  :)


  1. I know the weather for Central AR was iffy, and I'm so glad it worked out for you and your family to get to see the eclipse!

  2. we had a terrific view in central Arkansas - we live in the Russellville area and the skies were clear as could be!
