Sometimes I love rainy days. Yesterday was a quiet, slow, rainy day. We finished school, I did my housework and then I got to sit and sew for a little. I was able to get the sashing on my Granny Squares. I just need to add the borders and I'll have another top ready for quilting. I sorta burned out on the Granny Squares. But when I started working with my blocks again I remembered why I love them so much. I enjoy looking at all of the different prints I used for this scrappy granny!
I also had an anniversary this week. My sweet, sweet husband surprised me with these beautiful roses. I'm generally a thrifty person and don't like the idea of wasting money on store bought flowers because they die. But I will admit they make me smile and the gesture warms my heart. We all keep walking by them and smelling them. I realized when I went to put them in water that I don't even own a vase anymore. They are currently residing in a wide mouth quart size Mason jar, which I actually prefer over a vase anyway.
My son drew us an anniversary picture. I asked if we were "love birds" because I thought that was what he drew. He looked at me like I was totally nuts and said "No, mom, you're Bluegills!" I don't think he could have made his dad more proud. These boys love fishing!
and just because they won't last long....another shot of the roses :) Hope you're having a wonderful week!!!
P.S. The hand quilting demonstration I gave on Sunday was really fun! Thanks for the encouragement!
