I'm supposed to be cooking dinner. But what I really wanted to do was just finish up the cornerstones on the garden path setting for this sampler quilt. SIGH What was I thinking last year? Another sampler. AND another pink and green quilt!
This is the quilt top so far, not sewn together. It was the $2.00 block from a LQS, that really was $5.00 a block since I never got there after the first one on the right day for pickup. So, I think the quilt top actually cost me more than if I had just made it myself. The original sampler was supposed to have pink where I have the neutral. This will probably be a Christmas present for someone! The green is a muddy green, and the other colors are more "greyed" than I prefer. They called these colors Shabby Chic, but I just call it drabby.
And what would the first day of opening the pool be without the appropriate kidlets playing in the water. Here are my darlings that live close by. It was only chilly when we got out, but quite nice to play in and under the water!
