A Quiet Week-end

Sunday, July 22nd, 2012

I mainly puttered around the house this week-end, doing odds and ends of stuff. We had a great dinner on Friday night. I am still savoring it. After doing our household chores yesterday morning, we headed for downtown Portland to look for new chairs for our kitchen. The chairs we have were purchased when we lived in NY and are Hitchcock chairs with stenciled backs. They are wonderful chairs, but don’t really work with our more modern aesthetic.

We saw that Design Within Reach (named Design Out of Reach by our kids) was having a sale. We found some chairs that we really liked and now are waiting for them to be shipped from Kentucky.

I had nice phone calls with all 3 of my kids. Look at this wonderful photo of Mark with Paige. I just love it.

I also had time to keep up with my 3 x 3s.

I have 3 days to get some work done in my studio before I leave for 3 days in Long Beach for International Quilt Festival.
