Fabulous Friday

For Today:
Looking Out My Window:  Yesterdays warm temps melted a lot of snow.  There's grass showing, dry roads, and I'm looking forward to another warmer day.

My Weekend Plans Include: Tomorrow it's practicing crewing.  Ed is off on a 40 mile "fun" run? I get to follow him around, via the car, and make sure he makes it from point A to point B, etc. Oh, boy!

I’m Reading:.  I'm still reading Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens.  Oprah, I found out, has it on her reading list. I should get quite a lot of listening done tomorrow in the car.

Movie Marquee: I wanted to watch American Graffiti.  It's been a long time and we also have the beginning of season 6 of The Office.  It's getting harder and harder for me to watch regular TV with all the commercials.

Something Quiltie: This week I was able to spend some time auditioning fabric for my newest project.  Choosing fabric from my stash and seeing how it might work in a project is always a challenge.  Then you need to see how it will work with the other fabrics.   You have to see if it's a team player.  Sometimes you just don't know until you begin to work with a particular color or pattern what it will do.  Kind of sounds like people doesn't it.

One of My Favorite Things: are quiet mornings.

I’m Thinking About: some upcoming travel plans to Savannah.  Has anyone been there?  Any recommendations? 

What’s For Dinner:Yesterday I tried a new recipe from Cooking Light, January, 2011, Mexican Chicken Casserole with Charred Tomato Salsa.  It was great.  And we get to have it again tonight!

Until Next Time-


  1. In Savannah take a city tour, there is shopping on the water front. Lovely old mansions. When do you go? Wonder if you will have nice weather, at least it won't be hot and muggy as in the summer. Did you have some winners in your fabric auditions or did you have to go to the newer "models"?

  2. Planning on going to Savannah in April or May. Actually, most of my winners came out of my stash. Just 3 little pieces where new models.
