You Are Here

I am here and happy! I had an impromptu early birthday dinner for myself, Mr C, M & M and their dad, Jack. Stephanie has been working in Brooklyn all week – she comes home tomorrow night. We had grilled salmon, steamed broccoli, roasted potatoes and carrots and cupcakes.

M & M brought me some pretty flowers.

M & M are spending the night, and they have been having a ball with my Wii Fit Plus.

I received a package from my friend Judy Carpenter. Inside was this beautiful silk scarf which she dyed using a sugar syrup resist. It is gorgeous.

I couldn’t move forward on my organ piece because I didn’t have a piece of batting large enough. I did some shopping at Mill Ends, near my house. I bought a large piece of luscious charcoal gray felt, some cotton batting and some thick dark gray felt – not sure what I will do with that – maybe back some quilts to hang using Jane Dunnewold’s method.

I decided to use the charcoal gray felt for the organ piece. I have drawn a grid on it to help me free cut the pieces based on a gridded photo.

And today’s 3 x 3 – made on the fly!

    Oh, what sweet sweet wishes from Jeannie! I will just have to say ditto to all of that! I’m so glad that your scarf arrived on time. I’m going to have to borrow your photo of it, because as I put the package in the mail, I realized that I had never photographed it! Duhhhhh! Always in a hurry!!
    Sounds like last evening was marvelous: both your dinner and your overnight guests. My how they have grown since we first met! Both are very good looking young adults! 😉
    Hope today is very wonderful for you, and that the coming year is all you have dreamed it will be.

    Happy Birthday my dear Gerrie!!! I have so many wishes for you, too many to list! So, I’ll keep it simple – I wish you so much joy, laughter, and fun. I hope that this year brings all of your heart desires and then some. Celebrate and know that the world is so much richer having you in it. xoxoxo
