First of all, a big thank you to my latest follower "J". I hope you find enough of interest to keep following me.
I am also answering the few comments from yesterday in this post because I really don't think anyone has time to go back and re-read comments and I want you all to know how appreciative I am of your comments.
Thank you! I am feeling 200% better today!
Welcome! What a delight to read your comment. I would have emailed you privately, but you were anonymous, so I had to answer here. I am so glad you found something worth spending hours at my blog! I know I am just thrilled when I come across a blog on the weekend that is so interesting, I spend half a day just reading old posts. I salute you back with the glass of Chardonnay that I am drinking right now---from the box, of course. :)
Betty and Dianne,
Thank you both for the well wishes. You are both such loyal readers and I double thank you for that!
So I just finished my third mini quilt from this weekend. I can admit when I am wrong -- and I was oh, so wrong to think these would have made quilt art that I wanted to look at for the rest of my life (since it's doubtful that DH will ever agree to change pics and fix the sixteen holes he drilled into the wall to hang the 8 lighthouse pictures). The colors ended up way darker than I originally thought they would be anyway.
They do make pretty good trivets to protect my long counter when I am in a mega baking mood, or when I have a family potluck and everyone brings a hot dish. I have one more to finish and that should fill in most of the slightly-over-8-foot counter.
Did anyone notice my parsley plant down at the end of the counter? I have kept it alive all winter (!) and have even used it a few times. I actually still have three of the four herbs I tried to save. I used some rosemary on Sunday when I made a very tasty pot roast. I do love having fresh herbs during the winter months.
Take care, all, & I hope you are all having a wonderful Tuesday.
My Weekend Goal was to Make a Bench Pillow - I am happy to report that I accomplished that goal!
