I had a wonderful day today. It was one of those quiet, no one needs me for anything kind of a day. The sun was shining and the birds were chirping. I got to sleep in and I don't have to weigh in until Monday! (The final weigh in) I went to Zumba, baked some muffins, cooked some squash to make into soup tomorrow, did some cleaning and filed some quilt paperwork. DH cleaned the family room and did a spot on job of it. Then we went to Dixboro to the General Store there and met up with our DD2. I got a new candle and some handmade candy canes. Then we drove to dinner with our DD2. It was a nice night. Now we are home and getting ready to watch the Rocky Horror Picture Show. I love that movie!
I wanted to share a quilt with you though before I go to watch the movie. Do you remember when I went to Grand Rapids and got to meet Amanda Jean of Crazy Mom Quilts fame? Well I finished a top and now the entire quilt is done. I really love how LTW quilted it so I thought I would share it before I send it on to Margaret's Hope Chest.
I had this fabric from some fabric sample cards and I thought it would be perfect for a boy's charity quilt. Actually another woman made one too but she used brown for the sashing where I used light gray. I really love this quilt. I had enough of the fabric squares such that I kept enough to make another top from it and left the rest with Carin to make another top. I'd say I got my use out of those samples, wouldn't you? Four quilts all together. I also have this same set of fabric in the red and blue colorway (also samples). I plan to make some more of these tops to donate too.
Ok so that catches you up with what's going on over here. I am going to throw some laundry in, pull some more things to file while watching the movie and just enjoy my time alone with my DH.
