until I woke up and saw this!
It was so beautiful that I had to go out and take pictures.
Needless to say, there was no garden work done today. Nonetheless, I enjoyed a wonderful day. I cleaned just a little, I finished the 64 3-inch blocks I've been working on all week to finish off the X's for this star quilt I started last fall,
and I spent a few hours hand quilting my 'Roses are Red...' quilt while watching a marathon of Deadliest Catch, an Alaska Bering Sea fishermen show on the Discovery channel. It's probably some hit reality show that I've never heard of. I was captivated by the life of those fishermen. Talk about a tough job! I can't imagine living that life.
I think that may be as big as my star quilt is going to get. I am planning to buy new family room sofas and I think this quilt may be perfect for a throw on a solid colored sofa (tan or green is what I am thinking). It's big enough to throw over your lap, but not really long enough to pull up to your chin and curl up with (I think it's 51' by 51' right now). I will have to think about whether to enlarge it because I really enjoy curling up covered to my chin while watching a movie. It's about 4th in line to be quilted, so I have plenty of time to reconsider the size.
In the mail today, I got something about a group called Ojos Gitanos, A night of Spanish guitar, song and colorful Flamenco dance. I haven't the vaguest idea what this is, but I called anyway and made reservations for the first weekend in May. I googled it and found this pic
It's a dinner show. I am assuming it's a Mexican meal. Has anyone heard of it? I think it's a group out of Chicago. DH and I love to go to dinner shows so we're game to go and see what it's all about. I hope I don't have to dance! I have no rhythm.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
