How Did It Get to be Friday?

These beauties are calling to me. Not sure what I'm going to do with them but I will leave them laying around today in case some brilliant idea pops into my mind. It certainly won't be anything very large since this is all there is. Just 5 fat quarters.

Last night the quilt gals & I compared notes on things we are working on. I finished those little Christmas houses and wanted to take a sepia fine-line Sakura pen and write Christmas 2008 above the houses. My friend who has the Bernina embroidery machine, volunteered to do it in old script on the machine for me. Wahoo-one less thing to do for a finish. I will pick it up next week. Ain't it great to have friends? The weather here varies between blazing and sort of blazing and humid. I know some of you have much worse to deal with so I'll quit bitchin' now. At any rate, I've been hanging out inside with books and sewing and enjoying visiting you all to see what you're up to.

In a couple of weeks I will be heading out to Pennsylvania. First, we got a room at the Hershey Convention Center for the big quilt show there (whoohoo)and then we are heading up to visit our dear friends, Rich & Diane who live on a mountain top in Lockhaven. I'm really looking forward to both those things. Rich and Roger go all the way back to grade school so it's a lot of fun for him to see his good buddy plus we adore his wonderful wife Diane and their 2 girls.

Yesterday Dorothy asked us what's on the fridge. I think mine is always a mess since I have a million scraps and pictures some from...Christmas...gad. It's just one of those things I walk past forever and don't think about. It had many train items(Roger's hobby) many little art pieces(me) and some funny pics from James when he worked at a local gas station. I guess I really should do some culling. All pics are clickable-there are two pics of my beautiful nieces, little Tatum, and the lovely Michelle.

I'm off to throw in a load of the omnipresent laundry and then some sewing. Yesterday they had a mini marathon on TBS of Burn Notice-my all time fav program lately. It's so good it makes me giggle. The new season began last night so I'll try to catch it on-line today while I sew. Hope your day is a great one. Talk to you soon.

I remember Lockhaven. I think I have been there, being a former Penn Stater!! I had relatives in Williamsport. My mom was from PA. My friend, Diane, made a really cool quilt out of those fabrics. I think she had veggies, too.

Have a nice week-end. We are having such fabulous and well-deserved weather. I mean, it is perfect.

Placemats, table runner, hot pads, oven mitts, coasters, cozies...I never know what to do with fabric with prints like that. But it doesn't mean I don't buy it and drool over it.
