Downs and Ups

This weekend was a busy one; work, friends and family in for a visit, a trip to the ER...

Last night was definitely the worst part of my weekend. Sister was ridiculously sick and ended up calling 911, getting a ride in an ambulance, and spending several hours in the ER. We live about 1.5/2 hours away (opposite ends of the Chicago suburbs) and we hauled it down to her place. Husband, bro-in-law, and friend returned home last night and I stayed with her. She was able to go home, get some medicine, and is feeling much better. I needed to get home. That's where the best part of the weekend comes in.

I took the commuter train into downtown Chicago and had a few hours to wander around, people watch, window shop, etc. It was a wonderful stroll; beautiful weather, fingers stained orange from Garret's popcorn, never once pulling out the emergency GoogleMap in my purse. Then I hopped onto another train and was home by the afternoon. I picked up Eat, Pray, Love before my jaunt into the city and LOVED every page I read. And then, upon my return home I was greeted by this...

Amy Butler Midwestern Modern fat quarters. What should I make? I'm thinking a set of placemats with two coordinating fabrics in the same style as the ones Danielle made for me and some sort of patchwork handbag and a no-cash wallet from BTRS and what else?

Ok, this is my third comment in 5 minutes, but what a coincidence! I picked up Eat Pray Love this weekend as well! I'm halfway through India, and I'm really enjoying it. I'm glad your sister is ok, and I can't wait to see what else you make with those fat quarters!
