Peace And Quiet Day

Today was a good day. We left early this morning to the casino. We played for a couple hour before coming back home. The traffic was slow but not bad.

I finished the flower. The photo looks good. I'm not happy with the petals, but that will come with time and practice. I do like the way this is coming out. Who knows, I may actually have one more thing done this year!

Phil's quilt will be next too.....okay which one....finish one then the other?....maybe on two at once....or three....that sounds more like me!

We got word yesterday that my Nephew is expecting his first child in Aug. Both Jason and Lisa called me last night. I'm excited. Trouble is, now I need to make something for them. I noticed I had some white and baby green yarn downstairs. May make an afghan for them. That usually goes fast. Oh, crap...ANOTHER project. Oh, well, I'm having fun! Happy Quilting.

Went To The Movies Today
