So many good things

That's what this post is full of...wonderful things!

Firstly, here is my Laura Gunn version of the New Wave Quilt in all it's glory.

Isn't it yummy? I'm loving it. And now it's sitting with its other Laura Gunn friend on our sofa. Yay! (I love matching - pillows are in the works...).

It's gorgeous outside so I jumped out on to our patio and took pictures of our big organic herb pot. They're looking good and I'm sure will taste even better!

My sweetie's parents are coming this weekend for a visit. It'll be the first time they've seen our apartment! We have big cleaning plans that I started today (as you know you all do when parents come to town) and while we normally are tidy, I'm amazed at how nice the place looks even just with a good vacuuming and mopping (this all occurred, by the way, because Louie is at the groomers and therefore I'm free to vacuum and mop without him terrorizing me and the appliances during the process - I don't know what it is but he's OBSESSED). See, even the dog will be shiny and new. ;-)

We have lots of fun plans: Billy Elliot, the Dalai Lama, and yummy restaurants of course. We're going to be spoiled over the next few days, I can just tell. In another couple of weeks, my sis will be moving here to start her summer internship and MY folks will get their turn. Can't wait!

Gotta go - a bunch more errands, cleaning, running (it's GORGEOUS out!), emails/job stuff and hopefully some sewing. I'm so behind on working on my Pillow Talk Swap pillow!

  1. That is such a gorgeous quilt. We saw the Dalai Lama a few years ago - amazing. (I am very behind on my pillow but isn't due yet ....)

  2. Your quilt is beautiful! I love that line of fabric...

  3. I just love that pattern. I think I will be using my Heather Ross for mine :) I can so see little mermaids all over that quilt.


Kind words, funny stories, and recipes are always welcome. :)
