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