Awesome weekend...

Where do I begin when telling about how great of a weekend I had.  

Saturday morning the girls woke up to find all the seeds sprouting like mad.  I made an executive decision that we were not starting the second tray of seeds until next week.  That way we can have harvest times staggered a bit.  That way I get tomatoes all summer long, hopefully.  One can hope that there advantages to being in charge and making these kind of decisions.
 There was a new 'cafe' to try out upstairs in the spare bedroom of all places.  The service was superb and the food outstanding.  Loved my salad along side my steak and potatoes.
Compliments to the chef!
She was wondering if she would ever get on the show "Diners, Drive-in's and Dives".  I told her not right away.  Maybe with a little work.  :)
 On Friday the most wonderful of wonderful things happened!
The quilting foot for my new sewing machine came in the mail!
I really think I snatched the box out of our mail carriers hands.
I'm just glad she knows us pretty well and didn't take any offense to the snatching.
She had been well informed of the weeks of frustration that I had been suffering and I don't think it phased her.  She even told me who the package was from, so I think she kind of prepared herself for what ever was to come.

You don't know how freakin' awesome it was to get back to quilting and getting the Christmas quilt finished on the machine.
Angels were singing for me.
 Now I'm enjoying finishing the binding on the back.  
Two more sides to go!!!
You know I'm jigging while trying not to stab myself with the needle.
I must depart from all this happiness for a short bit so that dinner can be made.
But rest assured that I will be back at the quilt very quickly so that I can do an even bigger jig to celebrate the completion of this quilt.
Pics will be coming soon!


  1. You deserved a good weekend. I'm glad your mail carrier took your reaction in stride. I'm chuckling at your seed plans....I did exactly the same thing yesterday as I planted round one. It all boils down to timely (well, maybe a few other variables too).

  2. I am giddy just reading this!! :o) How exciting!!

  3. I'm so glad you had a lovely weekend. How exciting to finally have your quilting foot. Happy sewing. :)
