All day Quilt-a-thon


Yes, today was my husbands birthday, and we had intended to spend a nice romantic overnite at the farm but, alas, I have been laid low by a terrible sore throat and a stuffy nose!  I did manage to get zucchini bread in the oven for breakfast before he got up.  A valient effort which he appreciated, but the day did not proceed as we had planned.

Instead, my two older girls decided that they wanted to sew with me so we set up a card table in the bedroom, hauled in a couple more machines, and we sewed the day away while the birthday boy read magazines and generally futzed around.  It was fun and relaxing, and I even got in a little nap!  Gotta love having girls!  My son actually showed up about half way through the day.  He had taken the train home from the city so that he could go to a party this evening with his friends here in the burbs.  We invited him to join us but he promptly fled the scene flailing his arms and screeching in horror! Ah well, boys have their charms too …

There was lots of cutting

And pressing

And then we had blocks!  Mine....
