how I spent my birthday

January 28, 2010

I took the day off from work yesterday and spent the morning lounging around working on a quilt design. The mister brought me lunch and took me out to pick up cupcakes from a new-ish shop not too far away. The beauty of cupcakes is that I’m able to pick out 6 amazing looking flavor combinations and taste test them over the next few days. I spent the rest of the afternoon reading some Octavia Butler and ended the day with some yummy sushi.

I’ve really been loving all the ticker tape quilts that have been showing up on Flickr lately, so I’m leaning towards that for my Doll Quilt Swap 8 contribution. Yesterday I played around a bit with a possible layout. This is how it was looking yesterday morning, but I changed it around quite a bit before I was satisfied.

I think its time for the fused plastic banner to be hung in the entry.
