I have been doing hand quilting on the mini I am making for the HGTV mini swap. My partner is Shogun. I love this little quilt. I think it is probably my favorite piece I have done in a long time. I can`t wait to get the binding on it next week and get it sent to her. I have decided I love hand quilting small pieces and plan on doing a lot more!!
Today the 23rd of May is my 23rd wedding anniversary!!! I left work early today and went to Altoona with my husband to celebrate. I took him to the Olive Garden for dinner, and it was very, very nice. This is the first time, in I can not remember when that we did not take at least one of our sons with us. We went to the local antique store and flea market. I found a great book of embroidered flowers for only two bucks. That was all I bought at the flea market. I told my husband all I wanted was a pair of Crocs shoes, so of course we could not find them in about 20 stores at the mall. He took me to another shopping center and bought me two pairs of Crocs, and two tops for our anniversary!! So I made out very good! lol
Tomorrow we go up to my Moms camp and have a picnic for her birthday and to celebrate Memorial Day. On the way up every year, I stop at a nursery and buy her flowers and plants. I buy some for my house at the same time. I want to plant some asparagus this year too. I found out my whole family love fresh asparagus fried in olive oil in a cast iron skillet.
That is what I am up to on this weekend!
