Sunday Afternoon

Steph's quilt is done, quilted, bound, labelled and named! It's name is "Spring Fling in the Great NorthEast" and I'm quite pleased with it. I did a big meander, with a lot of freehand hearts, and quilted her name into it several times. I took it to the meeting of South Jersey Longarmer as show and tell.

I always learn something at the longarmers meeting. Most of them have been doing it for awhile, are happy to share tips and stories. I know I never want to do it as a business- I hate deadlines, and if I make a mistake on a family quilt, no one knows but me.

Last night Ralph, Steph and I went out to dinner to Abondonza, which is one of our favorite places. We all brought home enough leftovers for at least 2 more meals!

Steph's decided she'd rather have shams than pillowcases. She'll use white pillowcases and the patterned shams. That will look pretty, and use more of the stash!

Things to be happy about:
It didn't snow after all!
Having Steph and Toast home for the weekend.
Steph and I are going to go to NC next weekend!
