I started this quilt at 11 a.m yesterday and finished the top at 9 p.m. this evening. During that time I also slept, read a crime novel, ate, worked four hours, read lots of blogs, and participated in a marching band with my kids. :) This was a mystery from a local quilt shop, although I changed the pattern. The half square triangles were supposed to be in a flying geese formation but I put them in pinwheels instead. I added the two fabrics for the borders from my stash. Also I changed out one of the fabrics, there was a dark yellow but I replaced it with the dark blue. This top is about 60 x 75. You know, I haven't made any stars for awhile and I am feeling kind of out of place with my quilting. My DH says "These last few quilts just don't look like the quilts you do".
My DH and I celebrated twelve years of marriage on 06-06-06. We went out to eat at the nicest restaurant around here and it was great! Much better than expected, cheaper than expected, and great service. I had a steak and potato, and some kind of greens, Bill had shrimp and scallops with garlic mashed potatoes and shredded carrots and asparagus. We had crab cakes for an appetizer, with iced tea for me and a dark beer for him. The view of the mountains was magnificant, and the weather was beautiful. It was a great celebration.
