There was laundry...
|Mike has clean clothes to wear today.|
I made a lasagna...
I thought about adding some spinach to make it red and green for Christmas! I opted for the classic meat and cheese. We had it for dinner last night and we froze some for another day.
I made a layer cake quilt! This pretty little lavender and purple lap quilt is a free pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop called Lemonade. In my case, it's more of a Grape-Ade. (There is also a You Tube Video.) All fabrics are from my stash. I put it together in 2 nights. It is a gift for a co-worker who lost her home in a fire. The heater in their aquarium burned out and that caused a spark big enough to set the curtains on fire. When the fish tank exploded, the water in it extinguished the fire, but the smoke damage was so great that they lost everything. She's not a close friend, but I figure it's the least I can do. She's a really nice person.
|Yes, I noticed that there are two rows of identical sashing |
lining up next to each other. I'm going to live with it. This
quilt is meant for use, not for the quilt show in Paducah.
Unexpectedly, there were lilies. Mike went to the grocery store yesterday to pick up a few items, and he brought me home this lovely bouquet.
|Admittedly, it's a mixed bouquet, but there are |
definitely lilies in it. Place mats underneath were
a gift from the Place Mat Queen, Joannie.
|Wouldn't this photo of Mike be perfect if he were |
playing a lyre instead of a classical guitar?
And of course, there is always LarryPug!
|LarryPug will do anything for a laugh.|
|LarryPug got a new chewy bone yesterday. |
He is making sure that it is empty.
Hope you have a lovely holiday with your loved ones.
Pugs and kisses,
