May The 4th Be With You
Happy National Star Wars Day!
Not a lot going on here in Allie-land. Slowly stitching, reading lots of good books, reading lots of good blogs *G*, not much else new. I was scrounging through my fabrics and found some quilt blocks I had started, from Gwen Marston...the quilt is called Sand Pails. I had stopped production when I realized I didn't know how I wanted to do the handles of the sand pails. I pulled them out, and tried some rick-rack that Carrie had sent me....what do you think?
I LOVE it. I'm going to do them all with rick-rack. And it's pretty quick stitching it on by hand! I spent the morning cutting the rest of the backgrounds for the pails.
The rain has stopped, and the sun has appeared, a lovely evening here. There was a lot of flooding to our north. I hope all my Michigan friends are dry. I'm going to go sit and do nothing, we went out to eat this evening and I'm stuffed.....doesn't this look good?
If you're ever in the Livonia, MI area, Leo's Coney Island is on the southeast corner of 8 Mile and Farmington roads - next to Jimmy John's. The Greek salad is wonderful!
I hope you all have a very yummy weekend!
