Last week I wrote an entry complete with photographs about the Empire Quilt show and how much I had enjoyed some of the quilts. Through my own ineptitude I managed to erase it before posting. It's the kind of thing that happens, but lately with the hurly-burly of my life, it was more disheartening than it should have been.
Here I sit after several days full of quilting activities with wonderful people where I learned a lot and had a great deal of fun. I took a class in which I learned a new technique that I hope to incorporate in my own designs. There was a day of sewing on a new project that I can hardly wait to get back to working on and to meet again with that delightful group.
This weekend was D's birthday, and who could have asked for better weather? If my spirits had been down, they would have been elevated - since my spirits weren't down, they soared with the application of sunshine. We had a grand time complete with his choice of good food (a small boneless leg of lamb, roasted brussels sprouts, Jerusalem artichokes as an experiment, and yams). His presents from a sister were garden themed - perfect for him and especially in this weather! Our g'son called and he and our daughter sang "happy birthday" to him.
Finally, today was the meeting of my "Pieceful Piecing Club" where we hand-stitched and laughed, and stitched some more.
So it was a grand few days!
