What I Made With the Shop Hop Fabric

Or alternately titled, ” Wanna see my fat calves?” I have calves that were made for walking, and biking, and skiing. Not modeling. Sigh.
The Western Washington Quilt Shop Hop is coming up in three weeks and we always have fun at the shop trying to find things to make with the Shop Hop fabric. This is from the Butterick 5431 pattern for a bias skirt. The fabric is a teeny bit thin for a single layer skirt. So I decided to line it with a pale pink gingham check and let a little bit of it show out from under the hem.
What you also can’t see is that my knee is still swelling up a little when I do anything. Yesterday we went on an extended bike ride of errands. Does anybody have any home remedies other than ice, ice, ice? I have another follow-up appointment in a couple of weeks to check on my progress.
On another note, we have been having extraordinarily warm and sunny weather for the last several days. We just don’t know what to do with so many consecutively nice days!
