Evidence of a Great Weekend!

I hope that you all had a great weekend, near or far! I have lots of pictures to prove my weekend was a blast!

Coldstone icecream cake--

Outside on the new patio--

Owen eating the dirt--


From my little vegetable patch - I know most in the US are already eating from their gardens or getting really close! Here in the mountains if I plant too early the frost gets it - this is the usual weekend for the seeds to go in! They were planted today :)


Joe and I got to go out for dinner on Saturday -- we had a great night on our own. And look what I found while browsing Barnes & Noble! Love all the eye candy in this book.
I finally have my own copy!

By birthday fabric! You guessed it :)
My Quilt-along fabrics
I'm hoping to make a summer quilt for our bed, through Dana's quilt-along!

That's all for now - this is our last week of school and it's a full week!
Blessings -
Amy

Jackie said...

What a terrific birthday weekend! We are like you with plantings, no where close to any kind of harvest. You made out well with the book and fabric. I also just purchased that book this week and love it!

Amy - your birthday cake looks yummy. I have enjoyed for weeks and weeks the quilt festival and thank you for setting it up. I am not good with the tec end of things and would like to find out why the "list" disappears from time to time - get a box with alot of computer code. I am only on 237 and have a ways to go. So is this box thing my computer that is failing to load the information correctly? or is it something on the blog end? On another note: would love to "mark" these entries but know it is crazyness to ask my computer to do so.... is there a way I could "list" all these blog spots to have for later? my email is pbxmimi@hotmail.com Thanks - enjoy the week - it will not be the last week of school for 3rd grade or 5th grade ever again.

Glad you had a great birthday. The kids look like they loved there weekend. I like that fabric you picked out. How much more did you get to make that quilt along quilt a queen. I like that idea. I may consider copying that plan for myself. OH, I'm so excited I did it I tryed free motion quilting. Hopefully I will get it on my blog later today. If I can figure it out. I quilted a whole baby quilt.

A great weekend indeed -- looks like you had a wonderful time! Yummy fabric and book. Our gardens just went in here this weekend too -- about 2 weeks late this year -- it's been so rainy and cold!

Happy Birthday to you! Mine was on Saturday. I didn't get a cake, but I got a hot date with my Hubby. I'm not complaining.
Yummy fabric!

Andrea said...

A perfect weekend!! HappyBirthday again...that cake looks so delicious, I love icecream cake! We're about the same in gardening mode. It's finally safe to plant here, and things are just peeking out. It's funny you posted that Material Obsession book - I just had it in my hands at chapters( our barnes and noble) this morning!!

So happy to have found your blog. Great inspiration! Just starting in the quilting world and having way to much fun. Just wish the Big Island of Hawaii had more fabric options.

Happy birthday! I just realized I am one year older than you.:) It looks like you had a wonderful day, and I love that stack of fabric just waiting for the wonderful possibilities. We just planted tomatoes two weeks ago. It wasn't warm enough at night until then. Happy gardening and sewing!
