A Peaceful (and Pieceful) Saturday

I am so glad this week is over. I was really busy with day job this week (lots of traveling around the state), hence the lack of posts. I didn't have to work at SBux last night so had a great evening at home with the cats and working on projects. I'm also trying to catch up on blogs and emails.

It is overcast and rainy here, which means I can't clean the carpets (too damp) and can bypass working in the yard. So I got up early for a Saturday and finished this project:
I love love love this quilt. Very 1940s. I got the pattern and fabric from Sweet Home Quilt Co. (Melisa takes on-line orders if you want to make one too!)
Stella is settling in for nap time. I, on the other hand, am going to start in on another project. More later....
