Sunday Morning Musings

I love quiet Sunday mornings when everyone is still in bed. I've been piddling on the internet, reading my email, reading blogs, and my house is so peaceful and quiet. :o) I really need to get my butt in gear and open my mail and pay bills. Ugh. I just hate doing that, probably because I let it stack up and stack up until it is a massive job.

But that is because I have so many other, more fun things to do! Like, work on a quilt!

I finished my quilt top in the quilt class on Thursday, and I picked out the material for the border and back (the reddish-orange floral material), and for the binding (the brown material).

I took the class at Quilt Arts, our new quilting store here in Jackson. It is a very nice store, and the owners are so helpful to newbies like me. :o) The class was a great experience, and I plan to take more classes from them. Rhonda Blasingame teaches there also, and I would love to take one of her classes.

I will end this post with a masterpiece I call Boy in the Kitchen. Billy, my daughter's boyfriend who lives with us also, was left to my tender mercies on Friday night as Megan took their one car to work. Due to my insistance that the only things I cook are frozen cheese pizzas and meatless spaghetti, poor Billy was forced into the kitchen to cook him some meat.

Actually he cooked hamburger helper, and Mark happily helped him eat it. I had cheese pizza. :o)
