It's A Good Day!


Yep, it's a good day. The sun is shinning, baby Polka Dot is visiting and lots of playing was happening all day (he's napping right now), and today is my friend Nan's birthday..... so a giant

HAPPY BIRTHDAY NAN!!!!! ♥♥
Hope your day is filled with lots of fun and all the things that does your heart good!!!

Not much quilty going on. I finished up a batch of pillowcases for a friend who has a pillowcase project and put the binding on this yummy quilt and shipped it off to Oregon. Great colors, and there's that 9 patch...gotta love a 9 patch! My friend Jan has such a way with color.

Years back I belonged to a group on Prodigy called the Buttonheads. We all collected buttons and exchanged quilt blocks that had buttons on them. Terry and I have stayed in touch over the years and this is what came in the mail on Friday. Now that's a button. It is going to be perfect in my sewing room......and she knows I am addicted to ME fabric. That pattern is so cute and has some wonderful Rick Rack on it.

Yesterday in honor of Ms. Geranium we barbecued some pizza. Such a great, easy recipe of hers and for our first pizza of the season they came out great!!! The cashews and purple onion were the perfect touch to all the normal toppings!

Wishing you all a great week of crafting and enjoying life!! I almost forget the good news...... THE COMPUTER IS COMING, THE COMPUTER IS COMING..........YIPEEEEE!!!

Prodigy....oh my, that does bring back memories!!! I think my husband used that as the carrot to get me computer literate (G)!!!!
Glad your day was joyous. Mine too....working on my ME project from camp. Gosh, I got so little done. Do you think I was just a bit to chatty (G)!!!! XXX Annie

Oh My! I must have a button like that! I wonder if she would share were she bought it from. My BFF would go crazy for a giant button.

Great post! I remember Prodigy... But the best thing on your post is the Pizza. I have never had it on the grill. I bet it has a really good flavor. Did you put it directly on the heat? Would love the recipe.

I have not tried cashews on my pizza, must be a California thang. I have made it once on the grill, maybe I should again soon.
