Yesterday, I went to school for our first Brownie meeting, and saw this hanging in the 2nd grade hall. I love it! And I think Daphne drew a very good taco!
Brownies was really really fun. Those girls are awesome. Lots of exciting things coming up this year including DOG SLEDDING! Fifteen more days!
I was exhausted by the time I went to my quilt class, but I managed to put all 35 blocks together into something resembling a quilt top! It isn't perfect, but it doesn't matter, I love it anyway. I love the colors. I love the pattern. It makes me happy.
I picked out fabric for the backing and binding, and now I just have to go buy batting. Next week, we sandwich the whole thing together and start quilting.
When it's done, I am going to put on my owl sweater and some housepants, and curl up on the couch under my quilt with some coffee, yarn, and perhaps a little Van Morrison or Iron and Wine. Maybe I should skip the coffee. Good grief. What if I spilled coffee all over my owl sweater and my new quilt?! OK, no coffee.
Looking forward to the weekend. Tonight is the big Willie Wonka movie surprise. I have had the hardest time keeping it a secret from Daphne. Tomorrow, she is going to a birthday party, so I get to hang out with Kev for a while. And Sunday, we're all going to lunch to celebrate my mom's birthday. There will hopefully be some knitting time. But not sewing. Because I am FINISHED sewing until the sandwiching class next week. Yay!
