After posting my last post i realized that that was my 666th post...make what you will of that! I think changing that number might make me feel better. I am not superstitious or anything, it was just 666 and that just seems bad....anyway....just saying
I have a few things to share here so it is a combined post of sorts. I finally finished Delilah's baby afghan. In truth it did make it to a finish much sooner than Mitchell's ever did...(when he was six years old). Her quilt began as a much different color...but i confess i made a total rookie mistake and did not purchase matching dye lots. i know!! what was i thinking? So i began it all over again with this gray, and boy am i glad that i did(check out the original start in this post). I do love it but it is not without its errors, sort of!!! Somehow it got a little out of control and grew and grew without me noticing. Changing from a sweet baby afghan to a decent size lap quilt, that likely weighs more than my actual baby!!!! Still love it though!
Then it was Mother's Day....my little's were so sweet. Buying me pretty flowers and making sweet cards. This owl was a gift from my hubby and is happily now residing in a tree branch above my tv cabinet.
It was my option to go out for dinner or have dinner made at home for me by him.... i chose dinner at home. Much cozier than a busy restaurant. He made me this wonderful curry chicken salad, that i could literally eat every single day. You can find the recipe here, i most certainly can not take credit for this fabulous dish.
Lastly, what could warm a quilt making momma's heart more than walking into a room to find all three of her babies happily snuggled up under a pile of her quilty creations!!!??? I tell you... there is nothing.
Who could resist this little face, happily whiling away the morning in her sisters lap with her two favorite fingers!
If you are reading this and have gotten all the way to the end, thanks for sticking with me even though this post was a little wordy and definitely picture heavy. Just thanks for being great blog/virtual friends.
