First off--I am doing this as I listen to a concert in the park two blocks away!!!
It is a beautiful choir--Christian music--
On our trip overtown--
Of course Little sister's and mine's first stop was for lunch at the Happy Days Cafe---

See--I was not joking---we get a huge sandwich here and we share it!!!  we also play a game of gin Rummy while waiting--today we each won a game!!!
Then we went to Pig Tail Alley Antiques and this came home with me--
An "old"--I mean older than Dirt milking stool---once I clean this up it will be perfect for milking my "goat"----
Just joking---it will make a great plant stand--course == everyone is working at me getting a "kitty" so there will go the house plants!!!!!

Then we stopped at the Quilt shop--I needed--( did you get that--I needed!!!!)
some fabric and we discovered this new pattern--Sue had the pumpkin pattern done up and it goes in a low glass dish and it is adorable-- so we got this one to do for summer---little sister knew where there was a glass dish for this one--but I am not sure it will work--but we will see!!!
Course the next stop was the Country Shop -- I decided I needed a wood tray to keep my quilting things in on the new glass top table by my rocker---as the thread and pencils kept rolling off onto the floor---finally found this one and I think it will work perfectly!!!!  And it only cost me $2.00 as I had $11.00 in credit---at the Country shop she keeps track of your sales for 6 visits--then she gives you 10% of that total in free merchandise!!!!
Then we slowly walked home--tried little old ladies--by this time!!!!
after a rest--some ice tea and some Chocolate I did finish putting this top together--
this is this years "Bouquet" bom that Jenny has--(see side bar)
I believe mine is a "tiny" bit different than how Jenny put her's together--but--what can I say?????  I still need to add outside borders--then do the batting and backing--basting and hand quilting--so I am far from done---but I am soooo happy with "meself" for actually getting the top all done in the same month as the last block!!!!!!

Well-I am off to spend some money on line for some large spools of my machine thread--
I hope you are all having a great holiday week end--

Hugs, Di
