See You In September

Yes, we got our power back on Monday night. Woo hoo! Spent last night reacquainting  myself with how to operate the stove, the dishwasher, the refrigerator.....I even made brownies from scratch! (Katherine Hepburn's recipe, no less).

I've got a couple books that need to be read, so I knocked off  'Room' (loved it!), and now I'm trying to read anything but the bookclub's non-fiction choice--which is strange because this bookclub is the neighborhood ladies Happy Hour/Night book club. Amy wanted a book club, so she's recruited us and chosen the first book, "The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks".  I don't know how this is going to work out, but I suspect that we're going to wind up with 'Don't Drink and Read' t-shirts by the time this is all over.

While the power was out, it would have been a wonderful time to pin about 3 quilts that are ready for pinning, but blame the DH because he didn't bring the pinning table up from the basement when I asked him, and it slipped my mind after that. So, rather than get started on that now, I've taken my usual run out to left field and I'm working on something else...

Remember that scrappy little Valentines quilt with the totally impossible instructions that I picked up a kit for in Vegas last fall? you remember!

Yep, it's a scrappy little pumpkin quilt kit I picked up in Vegas, and it's from the same provider of less than intuitive instructions that came along with the Valentine's quilt.  I gotta tell ya, I 86'd those instructions right off the bat... I'm doing things my way with this one. Hopefully I'll have something to show you by the weekend.

And hooray for long weekends! I've got a lot planned. There's going to be a field trip to a pretty cool Baltimore establishment (it'll be a blog post, so stay tuned, you're going to enjoy this trip), I need to do my Baltimore Album homework for class next weekend, and I'd like to get those sandwiches made. Setting the bar pretty high, as of Wednesday.

Hope you've got something wonderful planned as well! Whatever it is, play safe, and enjoy yourself!


  1. Glad you got the power back on!

  2. It's a great book - I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

  3. Have to add "Room" to my list of must reads. I've been struggling with what to pick up next. Book club sounds like fun! Your pumpkin quilt turned out very to see it "in process".


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
