First, a picture of a recent finish. Woo!
(Because this is first and foremost a quilting blog.)
I'm pleased with the orange border and blue binding.
A good snuggly fallish quilt.
Many thanks for the swine flu well wishes. I think we're on the mend. (fingers crossed.)
(Disclaimer: Sorry the rest of this has nothing whatsoever to do with quilting.) For you other SYTYCD (so you think you can dance) people: nothing like a show full of good dance (Wade!) to end a day of: taking care of sick and cranky people at the same time as you try to finish all the final fall yard work before it snows tomorrow. Whew. Mandi Moore's choreography made me full-on grin. At first I wasn't sure what to think when she didn't choreograph to some classic 80's hit, but man, Viva La Vida was awesome. Oh wow - that is how I want to dance in heaven. If I tried it now my children would start yelling, "MOM! STOP!" plus I'd probably throw my back out or dislocate a hip joint or something worse. And cute Ryan Di Lello. A few years ago my husband used to occasionally teach classes at BYU and Ryan was one of his students. (My husband taught Intro to Public Relations, not Advanced Latin Ballroom - although that would be pretty cool. Not that Public Relations isn't sexy too.) A short time later my husband was in charge of the youth group at church and asked Ryan to come teach a class in some basic partner dance moves. I was there. He is a really nice guy. So that is my brush with SYTYCD fame. And there you go.
Now, onto finishing Halloween costumes!
