Tara suggested I make two quilts, one for a boy and one for a girl. (I haven't started the boy's yet - better get moving on that!)
I bought two yards of the Sherbet Pips fabric from a quilt show in New York, and the rest on the internet (I forget which site).
Matt and Tara gave me a lifetime supply of these beautiful fabric labels. Some time ago I sent Tara a bunch of links and asked her to design some for me, as I felt too inept to accomplish the task and she has a knack for things like that. This is what she came up with:
Spoonflower, in case you're interested.
On another note, my Farmer's Wife blocks are NOT coming along so well! It seems every block I have some sort of problem! I'm almost ready to throw in the farmer's wife's kitchen towel :-) Are any of you making these blocks? I know I see a lot of the bloggers I follow doing them, some with no complaints, some with similar complaints as mine.
Today the love of my life and I are celebrating our 31st anniversary, which was June 28. We're going to spend the day on Jamestown (a small island about 35 minutes away). We're bringing our bikes, our bathing suits, and clothes to change into so at the end of the day we can have dinner at one of our favorite restaurants: Trattoria Simpatico. They have al fresco dining and the food is spectacular! I hope you all enjoy your day as much as I'm sure we will enjoy ours!
Take care, and may you bless and be blessed!
