Happy St. Urho’s Day to all my Finnish friends! Don’t know St. Urho? His day is celebrated on March 16…one day before the more famous St. Patrick’s Day. St. Urho cast the frogs out of Finland. See his story here . Scroll down to Nonhistorical traditions. And, don’t forget to wear your purple tomorrow!

This past weekend was the Dallas Quilt Guild’s quilt show. Here are pictures of some of the quilts I particularly liked or found interesting.

“How My Garden Grows” by Shelly Sutton

“Beach Budds” by Sandy Brawner

“Modern Coffee” by Barbara Lange

“Mariner’s Choice” by Jean Dobson

“Eat A Bug” by Cathy Bradley

“How Do You See the World” by Terri Krysan

“Fizzle Sticks” by Candy Mahaffey – one of the log cabin quilts that met the guild’s theme…

And, the completed guild raffle quilt (not the Dallas Guild, I’m holding off on naming as our guild has not seen it, yet):

I haven’t told you what I’m reading in a while. I just finished “The Titan’s Curse” by Rick Riordan, the third book in the Percy Jackson and the Olympian series. I read the first book before seeing “The Lightning Thief” movie, and really enjoyed it. So, currently, I’m reading “The Scarpetta Factor” by Patricia Cornwell, the lastest book in the Kay Scarpetta series.

Have a great week!

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been so long since I posted. I’ve been in a little bit of a blue funk, so haven’t been doing much sewing. Hopefully, things will be looking up!

This was my birthday weekend. It was a lovely birthday! My friends surprised me with a party in a suite at last night’s Frisco Tornado game.

Here I am with my cupcake cake. It was delish!

And, this was me, Janet, and, Diana as human bowling balls between periods. It was soooo much fun!

I’m very lucky to have such wonderful friends…especially because I’ve been less than fun the past couple of months.

There has been a little bit of sewing. I’ve been working on a raffle quilt with several other women for our guild. Here’s a preview.

It is being quilted and then has some last minute applique to be added. Can’t wait it see it finished!!

Don’t forget, locals, the Dallas Quilt Show is this coming weekend. See you there!
