Oho, the Wellth Fargo Wagon ith a-comin’ now

I feel like the little boy in The Music Man, waiting for somthin’ special to arrive. Here is what I am waiting for:

  • Superior thread from The Web of Thread in Kenmore, WA
  • Beautiful hand-dyed extra large backing fabric from equilter
  • Cotton batting by the yard and extra large felt to cover my design wall from Fabric Depot (This I could have picked up, but they do free shipping and I am afraid to go in the store until I get this current project done.
  • A custom designed quilt hanging device from the Quilter’s Husband (also some spray fuse).
  • A step counting pedometer because I have joined Debra’s walking challenge: Quilter’s with No Fat Quarters. All we’ve agreed to do is wear a pedometer every day and attempt to do 10,000 steps/day for 2 months.

I  have finished fusing the liturgical piece and can’t do anymore until the above supplies arrive. So I am working on the fish quilt. Here is a photo of the piece as it now lies draped over my work table.


Last night we went to see the DaVinci Code. I enjoyed it. It was a very faithful interpretation of the book. Then we went out for Japanese food – Yaki-soba and some spicy California roll.

Today was family dinner day. Here are the beautiful peonies I picked up to go with my peony place mats:



Steph and Jack dropped of M & M while they did some shopping for his new office. Milo showed me his tattoo of a dragon:


And Mia twirled around the living room: (clickable)

We enjoyed a meal of grilled Copper River Salmon, tri-tip, pasta salad with fresh  mozzarella, tomatoes and basil, asparagus, bread and strawberry shortcake (biscuits made by Steph, Yum!)

Hope you are all having a great long week-end!!

    The liturgical piece is amazing! What a huge project… the very size of it would terrify me! But there you are, each of us is unique and offering something special no one else can do. You can do the “large” and I’ll settle for the “small”! Meanwhile, I love watching your work develop via your blog!

    Hope your packages arrive soon! Isn’t it the pits to be at the mercy of the mail, so to speak.
    Your hanging is wonderful!!! I would find the size to be overwhelming, but you seem fine with it. You go girl!!!
