I had quite a busy week trying to get a baby quilt assembled for a co-worker's first grandbaby that's due in July. You might say, why rush? Well,I realized after talking to my BFF Michelle, who is also my "quilter extroadinairre" that in the next 8-10 weeks or so she'll be packing up the machine and taking off to her husband's next assignment so the push is on to get anything I need this summer done and ready early. The quilt did in fact get done but I didn't get the backing prepped so I haven't gotten it to her "YET" but I hope to mail it out this week so she can do it at her leisure....
I also need another quilt for around the same time for one of my daughter's best friend's so last night and today I started working on that one. With luck, I can get both quilts out to Michelle before the week is over.
THEN....yesterday I had the opportunity to meet up with Michelle again and we took a road trip to the Lancaster, Pennsylvania area. It was snowing like crazy when I left New Jersey, but this is what I drove into as I went over the Delaware Memorial Bridge. A little bit of clouds, but by the time I pulled into the Christiana Mall where I met Michelle, the sun was out, and stayed out all day. It was cold...but the sun was definitely out!
While there we visited 4 shops and let me tell you,
I had quite a day for myself. The old credit card was smoking by the time I left to go home.
