Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to my family and friends.  Yesterday after church I drove to Huntsville to have dinner with Janet and Nick.  Nick was the chef and fixed bruschetta and baked chicken parmesan!  It was delicious.

Chicken Parmesan
Janet and I weren't totally worthless.  I brought a bottle of wine and Janet and I went and picked up dessert while Nick was busy in the kitchen.

After dinner we watched "Toy Story".  If you can believe it, I had never seen any of the "Toy Story" films so it was way past time.  It was a fun show.

This was good!
Since we had wine, I spent the night and headed back to Franklin this morning.  (after Nick fixed breakfast).  On the way I made a few stops.  First up was "Sirs Fabric" in Fayetteville, TN.  This is about half-way between Franklin and Huntsville so I finally took the time to stop and look around.  May I say "once was enough".  The town square was cute and I looked at a couple other shops while I was there.

My next stop was at Cathy's to see her progress on my quilt and to drop off a quilt top that Barbara had pieced.  She made this for her daughter, Amy.   I love all the bright colors.  My quilt looks wonderful!!!  I can't believe it is almost finished.  Cathy was going to let me do a little of the quilting but I chickened out and did it in the margin that will be cut off.

Dinner looks yummy. Maybe you'll have a quilt for guild Show'n'Tell in March? It's a beautiful quilt and I can't wait to see the quilting. You inspired me to start a new quilt this month. :-D

How exciting to have your quilt almost done! I found a quilt top in my stash cleanup. Not sure what it's fate will be. No love for Sir?

What a nice way to spend Valentines! I love the quilt pics. I can't believe you chickened out on quilting some of your quilt (a part that wouldn't be cut off!).... so funny. I am sure you would have done a beautiful job on it. It is so obvious your friends and family love you so much. I enjoy getting a peek into your exciting life. I am also curious how much you will owe the quilting shop for fabric that needed a new home! Much love, ~Christa :-)
