No baby yet!! Mommie and I spent part of the day Wednesday at a beautiful outdoor mall shopping, walking, eating lunch and having a great visit together. We had gone to the mall to return a baby food processor/cooker that she had received as a gift. She had heard that the plastic in the bowl where the food is processed is the "bad" plastic, but we were happy to find out from the manager at Williams Sanoma that that was not the case. So we managed to do a little retail therapy and lots of chatting. Lots of chatting about BABY!! Thursday a friend of mine begged me to go shopping, OK it was totally my idea, so more retail therapy was happening!!!!
Last night I finished this Christmas quilt for Luke. This fabric just cracks me up. 12 Dogs Days of Christmas from the Happy Howlidays line from Moda. The border fabric says things like Happy Howlidays", "Very Hairy Christmas" and We Woof You A Merry Christmas!! ROLF - Ok, I am very simple and very easily amused :-)!!!! I have my second Designer BOM cut and ready to go and I plan to finish that today. Also I thought I would share this quilt with you. It was made by my friend Jan. I really love this quilt. The picture isn't that great (operator malfunction!), but boy it's a beauty.
Since Wednesday was the day we were convinced the baby was coming I was all full of excitement and anticipation and just couldn't get to sleep. I was up hopping around on the blogs VERY LATE and thought I would list some things of interest that I came across.
*May Britt is having a giveaway for her 2 year blogiversary

seeing this badge on other blogs and finally decided to

Parcheesi quilt on her blog complete with some wonderful applique tips.

anything when you read it!!! Talk about funny :-)!
