Happy day!

1. Farmer's market today - romanesco cauliflower, broccoli, radishes, potatoes

2. Dentist visit not too bad - no gum work needed right now!

3. I found a dress!!! This is a biggie - I'm going to a wedding this weekend - my boss's son - in the Poconos. I literally had NOTHING to wear. The last wedding I went to, I was 7 months pregnant with my not-quite-13-year-old. Any fancy stuff I do have is red or black, and this Southern girl is NOT wearing black or red (or white, for that matter) to a wedding. It's great, and I got a great deal at Nordstrom Rack. Originally priced at $160 and marked down to less than $30. Green silk chiffon over satin, ruched bodice, shoulder construction somewhere between a strap and a sleeve, tied at the back of the neck...and it fits wonderfully. I just need to buy a present, and I'm pretty much set.

4. New bras! One marked way down and pretty, and one with NO WIRE!! (and pretty, too.) Yippee!!

Secret Sister booty

I got a package from my quilt guild secret sister yesterday. It had a birthday card in it, so...wait for my birthday, or not?

Since one item wasn't birthday-wrapped, just in plain paper, I decided that it was my belated guild-meeting goody bag, and it was!! A couple of fat quarters, some coffee, some chocolate (!!!) and a cool fiber art pin. If I could find the camera, I could show you photographs.

AND, still 3 wrapped little packages for my birthday!! How cool is that!

Another guild's quilt show is this Friday and Saturday. It's the one that meets close to work during the day. At some point I may try to join, but something always seems to come up on that Thursday.

I've started working on the ripple afghan for the mid-kid again. It's over a foot now, but still a long way to go.

EEK! I'm still here...

Over a month!
Not a whole lotta quilting going on. My boss had emergency surgery almost a month ago, so I've been the de facto boss instead. Lots of stress. And a vacation weekend at the beach as well.

Great guild meeting tonight - June Colburn.
Wonderful design ideas, very well presented. Just a solid talk.
