On the back of my design wall

I am making a Christmas Tree Skirt for my daughter and son-in-law! I am using my "Grinch" material ans the tree skirt pattern from Missouri Star Quilt Shop!




1:44 am Finish

This quilt has been "almost done" for a very LOOOOONG time! It is the first quilt. I have made for myself and has been put on the back burner multiple times so finish other more time sensitive projects! I was determined to finish it tonight! Why? Well, this is the first time in a long time that I was actually cold in the evening, so I wanted to sleep covered up with it tonight. So.....while watching DVR'd shows, it is finished and lovely:

Back from Seattle

I have been back from Seattle for a couple of days now! Back to the "grind"!

I have a WONDERFUL time in Seattle with one of my "besties", Susan. She is one of my oldest and dearest friends. And can you say-super Organizes. She investigated seattle so that when we got there, we just headed right to the sites and famous spots, no time wasted! And we had an absolute blast!





We saw THE most beautidul flower arrangments ever- with super cheap price tags!

Unlike anything i've ever seen!

We saH



Tons of dahlias and sunflowers and cabbage roses!

Also fresh seafood:


We took the ferry to Bainbridge Island and shopped the day away!













Shopped and shopped some more:

We also took the monorail to see Dale Chihuli glass exhibit---it was so inspiring and beautiful!!


I loved looking at his pattern, then masterpiece!















The gift shop was awesome too! We spent time and $$ there!

This is not to mention the delicious meals we had! Alot of shrimp!

It by far was one of the best vacations I've had!




Finshed the binding on my Halloween quilt that is for my oldest (Susan is it "eldest"?) sister. I will be giving it to her today!

Inspected by dogs-"Thing One and Thing Two"!
