We had a very nice weekend and celebrated our 5th anniversary with a steak dinner in a nice restaurant in Rolla. They kept the homemade rolls and honey butter coming and we were beyond full when we left.
Yesterday I took a drive to our little fabric shop here in town and they were unpacking a new shipment of fabric and I got first go at it! I was shopping primarily for backing for small quilts, but I caved and bought some shamrock prints because I always intend to make a special quilt or runner for St Patrick's Day.
The white fabric on the right is white-on-white shamrocks. I'm thinking a table runner would be nice. Normally I don't do quilts specific to any holiday, but table runners are a nice way to add some interest to the table and they are not a long commitment of time to make.
I had a major computer crash yesterday and I'm using Jeff's computer today while I shop for a replacement. It looks like all the new computers are loaded with Windows 8 and I understand it's a nightmare to learn. I may look for something on the back shelf that has Windows 7!
Wishing you blessings and a day filled with Peace & Plenty!! Barb
