I hope everyone had as wonderful a Mother's Day as I did. It was a beautiful sunny day so I picked up some champagne, fresh fruit and orange juice at the market... thanks to a generous gift certificate from my California son.... and drove over to my daughter's house.
We sat outside in the sunshine eating the crepes with fruit and drank mimosas of champagne and orange juice. My daughter inlaw and my grandaughter joined us and we chatted until my younger daughter had to leave for work at noon and my DIL and my g-daughter went off to have a picnic at a little beach nearby.
I've never seen anything like this before so i'm calling it a sun halo. My daughter noticed this ring around the sun while we were working on the chicken coop. Strange, huh? And very pretty!
I took Liza and Madeleine home and went home myself to see who would win the Amazing Race. I was a little disappointed that the Oklahoma brothers, the McCoys, didn't win but it was an exciting race overall.
What a great day!
Twiddletails posted the 10th block for the quilt I'm making so I got that done a few days ago too.
Two more blocks to go, then I guess there'll be sashing to go around each block.
Today, I'm going to be a seamstress and cut out the pattern for a skirt and top that my older daughter wants to take to California with her next month.
Jules wants to help. I'm sure that will make the project go much faster especially after he sees all that nice, crinkly tissue paper.
