Here are the curtains and tablecloth I made last year for my dining room. I still have not made my chair cushions though, they are going to be yellow. Maybe after I finish this birdhouse quilt. I picked up my mouse pad and arm rest at a yard sale for $1 and they match perfect!

Yesterday was a busy day for me. I left at 7 to take my husband to work. He works 30 minutes away and since we only have one car, I will stay in town to do all my grocery shopping. I had a hamburger at lunch. Whoops, should have had a salad - I had gone four days doing totally raw. I'll continue with my raw for at least two meals though.
We got home after five and went to church at 6:30 to sew. I cut 23 more birdhouse blocks, taught my sewing teacher and a two tweens how to properly iron, sew and cut for quilting. We had an assembly line going and got all 23 rooftops sewn! This quilt is for a friend and a few friends are helping me sew it. Today I need to "square up" (make even) the quilt blocks that are finished and cut the frames for 100 blocks! I'll get a few done at least so people can start sewing them on.
I can't wait to show you the quilt when it is done, I hope it turns out the way I am "seeing" it in my head.
Have a great weekend everyone, I am going to chop up an apple and sprinkle some cinnamon on it for breakfast. Did you know that cinnamon is very good you?
