McBlog Post

Here I am at the computer at 7:00 o'clock at night & it only feels like 10:00. What's up with that time change thing anyway? I'll admit it was a lot nicer setting up for the farmer's market in daylight, but man it's been a long day. The market started out kinda bad today, but ended well. That new quilt I made is gone, all the new bibs and an old item from my website too. Not too shabby. Luckily I snapped a photo of the quilt early on so I have something to show you. It's not a great shot, but you get the idea. Those Look and Learn fabrics are so great, I'm going to order more and make another quilt.
I felt so good when the market was over that I actually took the rest of the afternoon off & took Nick to lunch. We had a lovely time and today was gorgeous, almost 80 degrees.
While I'm here, I thought I'd
tell you about another coffee find. This one is a bit of a surprise. Yesterday, Nick & I walked over to McDonald's so I could try their new iced coffee. It was something like $1.79 for a huge vanilla coffee and I have to say, it was pretty good. Nice to know I can take a stroll over there when I need a break from the sewing machine. (The cookies are 3 for $1 too). Cool.

Glad things ended well at your market :)

Love the quilt. I wish I could sew but I can't seem to manage a straight line so I'd better just stick to yarn.

I LOVE the quilt! I knew you'd do something fab with that fabric ;). And YES.. what is with the "it's 7pm but feels like 10pm" thing!?! The time change is killing me!

Your quilt looks so wonderful. Quilts have been on my mind a lot lately, maybe because of the approach of winter or maybe because I'm starting to think about actually learning to make one.

Love the quilt! I bought the charm pack of that collection because I wanted to make scarves out of it for my boys but couldn't decide what patterns to buy. They arrived today and I still can't decide, LOL!
