Better Late Than Never

This post was supposed to be earlier today, but I got caught up and didn't get it done. So first thing this morning hubby snapped this sunrise photo at the golf course~isn't it pretty!
Well, I am pleased to share that my second Sister's quilt top is finished(needs to be ironed though).  I am happy with the end result, prior to quilting it.  The fabric line was Sea and Sky and that is what this quilt says to me. It reminds me of the Islands, hubby's favorite vacation spot and this is why I choose these colors.  On Saturday, I'm taking a friend down to a quilt store on the way to Estes and going to shop their Batik sale-yeah, a big 25% off for the back.  I'm thinking I might end up with the light blue-green, but I won't know until I'm there.  As for quilting, it will be simple-probably following the design lines.  It will make a nice lap quilt for the cooler weather.  This is what happens when you don't get any instructions from the teacher-you space out and forget that you haven't put the borders on yet.  Glad I didn't post it on FB on the teacher's page...silly me.  So guess I'd better get back to work.
I walked 3.4 miles today and also spent an hour or so at the pool with our youngest and her five.  Such fun!
Tomorrow I will walk with a girlfriend and then in the afternoon we girls will have a tea-party at Carrie's.  I am making a blueberry-peach crisp to take; I promise to get some before photos and will share that with the recipe.  Hope you've had a great day and will have a fantastic Wednesday.
