Evabeth turns 8 today and Rebekah turned 6, Sunday. They always want to celebrate together- they think they get more presents that way. Fine by me. Bekah is having a bad hair day. She has her mother's wild head of hair and she had been walking in the wind... thus, the windblown look. I took them to a symphony performance and they just loved it. Muncie has an excellent arts reputation. Lots of culture. But with the university, little parking. So it was a long brisk walk. Nobody seemed to mind. They are celebrating their birthday on Saturday, when Daddy can be home. I haven't recieved the menu, yet, but I am sure it will be sufficiently celebratory. Something including strawberries.
I got my blue skies and sunshine quilt all quilted up and even have the binding sewn on the back side. I just need to flip and stitch it down on the front. I just have been kinda busy and thus, tired, this week. I sure don't like to top-stitch binding when I'm tired. Looks like a drunkard was driving! Certainly won't do. I did have fun at the QS yesterday. I sewed up a small quilt top (Eleanor Burn's Lily pond from her Quick Trips book.) We did it up in blues and greens- what's not to love? Instead of appliqueing water lillies, Tanya is planning on making big dragon flies. With Angelina fibers on the wings. Very pretty. She had brought in her Mega Quilter- a Viking creation, and that thing surely does fly! Especially when you are doing long straight stretches. I might need to ask if I can borrow that when it's time to whip up curtains for my room! The right tool for the right job.
