Mothers Day 2016

It's a little dark, but photos taken against a window always seem to be.  For all who celebrate, Happy Mother's Day to you!  These tulips are from last night's Spring Fling at the public library.  For the trustees, it was quite a bit of work, moving furniture and setting things up on three floors, but it was well worth it.  The catered food was good, as were the magic show and musicians.  People seemed to enjoy themselves, and we even had people hang around after the music ended to help us clean up.

I took home a few of the tulips we had in little vases on some of the tables, but this morning Chris arrived with a big bouquet of mums in purple and hot pink.  Very pretty!  It was too gloomy to take a picture, so the tulips will have to do.  Because of the previous days' busy-ness (I walked over 7,000 steps yesterday in the library), we spent a quiet day at home.  I finished a tumbler quilt, made a nice loaf of bread, and read the 8th book in the Ruth Galloway series by Elly Griffiths.  I like those mysteries which feature a middle aged archaeologist who isn't glamorous or slim, but very human.

Tomorrow I will get out another quilt top and get it ready for quilting.  May have to finagle a back out of scraps, but I'm making progress on the ones hanging in the closet!

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

LOL - very few of us are slim and glamorous! It is nice when a book has people as we really are
