Quilting by candle light...
Well, admiring the quilt by candle light, anyway! We had a power outage yesterday evening, due to someone sliding their car into a pole- county roads aren't really very civilized. Everyone was fine, but the pole had to be replaced. The kids get downright giddy when the power goes out. I had just stepped out of the shower and I was less than giddy to be sitting in a cold house with a wet head.
But the quilt over the piano was awfully pretty. It is a very old one that my Aunt Shelia gave me. The fabrics are very coarse and the quilting very utilitarian- but you know how I love that look. It is one of my favorites because it gives the room a nice, cozy feel- important when the snow is flying and the wind is howling to get it.
Today was spent in less than quilty endeavors. I had to meet my MIL at the dr office. It was really quite pleasant as the dr was as cute as a button- aren't they getting younger every day. What? I'm getting older? Well, yeah, I know. Rub it in why don't ya? He was also very sweet with her and that put him on my good side. All is well. Then I went and had lunch with Sandy and we organized her fat quarters- you know how those drawers can get all out of hand! Now she is color coded and I am the proud new owner of her batiks. Score! Now it's home and I had the good sense to put the hen in the crock pot before I left. Chicken and dumplings for dinner. Sweet William will be home tomorrow night. He is in Atlanta for business. One more night without him. I think I can do it!
