There's no mistaking as to what my answer was...
We had a fantastic time yesterday...shopping, laughing, more shopping and more laughing followed by a fantastic lunch consisting of fresh, locally caught fish...and chips. It can't get much better than that!
My purchases included more of my favorite Civil War and reproduction fabrics to add to my stash.
I also splurged on some must-have notions.
It was as near to a perfect day as possible. Thanks Debra and Lisa!
At this time last year, I was in the fourth of six weeks of chemo and radiation treatments. It seems like such a long time ago and the memories are certainly bittersweet.
Today, I finished sewing on the binding to a little court house steps quilt that I pieced the week before starting my treatments.
It sat as a flimsy for almost a year when I decided to ask my friend Darlene if her Mom would quilt it for me. I have seen some of Darlene's quilts that her Mom has quilted and her work is amazing. The stitches are so perfect and so tiny. Those same perfect and tiny stitches now adorn my little quilt. It's relevance is even more special now.
And here's the back. Don't you just love toile fabric? It's my favorite to use for backing quilts.
It was a relatively mild day today and we didn't need the fire on in the kitchen so Frankie and Ollie decided to cuddle up on the chair in the family room instead.
|Move over, Ollie. There's room for both of us here!|
