Last night

We had a town day yesterday, ran around and did all of our errands, got the house measured for the new windows, had lunch at the cafe, and generally had a nice family day together.

Oldest made us dinner last night, from his new (birthday gift) cookbook. It was the first time he made dinner for all of us and it was really, really good. He made chicken quesadillas and a Caesar salad! There are even a bit of leftovers, so we can snack on them again today.

Our intention last night was to go and see Harry Potter in the theater - but no go! We got in, comfortably installed with our snacks, only to learn that the projector was not going to work. They tried about 4 times to get things to run (much to the delight of the kids who thought the sound track slowwwwing dowwwwnnnnn was an absolute riot) and in the end gave us passes (or refunds) and sent us on our way. We brought our snacks home and watched "Bridge to Terabithia" together instead. I'd read the book, and the movie was really wonderful. Well worth seeing. The boys are still talking about it this morning.

Thought you might like to see a little tidbit of another quilt that I finished this week:

It's a biggie, too. Marilyn called it a confetti quilt...I'm not sure if that's because it uses many small squares, or if that's the actual name of the pattern. I've not seen this layout before, but quite liked it. The quilt has a lovely homespun quality to it.

Man, I love scrappy quilts.

Happy stitching,

Fabulous feathers, Lisa!

Your quilting on confetti is the perfect compliment. I, too, love (prfer) scrap quilts.

Sad news about the movie! I saw Nancy Drew Monday night, and the theater had about 20 minutes of technical difficulties. Thankfully,they were able to fix it...

The quilt looks great. I'm liking scrap quilts more and more every day....
