petals on the edge....


that is the name of this quilt pattern.....I think I bought it a while back and it ended up with my friend Laura...She brought it over and said " this is a definite Melinda style quilt, and I think it must be yours..." . The cover of the pattern shows it all done in batiks with lots of nice hot colors and it does look like me...This example that I have made up does not...I challenged myself to think out of my color box and to use only scraps and I did both. It gave me something to do, what more can I say. Tomorrow I am going to put on borders and then quilt it up...I might do some embellishing too...What am I going to do with it? I have no clue...really. Yesterday the kids and I had a fun day. We pulled weeds in the weed patch (they thought it was fun....dirt and bugs and idle chatter...) and then took a picnic to the keystone ferry park. It is right on the water and the ferry goes right into the cove. Andrew was thrilled as he loves any kind of vehicle, boats included. We threw the stick in the water a zillion times for Cooper and built sandcastles... I have learned to appreciate every second of sun and blue sky we get and to get out and do something in it...Today I spent the day getting ready for Olivia's birthday...she is all excited about having a party. We are going to have it on Sunday at the park/ playground, so hopefully we will see some sunshine that day. tonight I got an email from my sister Julie sending me pictures of her baby shower...The one that my invitation said wasn't until This coming Saturday...The one that I mailed her crown and quilt for today! AAAARGGGHHH...I was so proud of myself getting it out on time too...darn it. I sent her a picture of her crown anyway and she laughed her head off and said she loves it. She says that she is going to wear it when she is in labor..That would be worth a trip to Utah to see! haha....
