White Thumb Day

Yesterday was a "white thumb" day.  I was in the mood to bake.  Made 3 dozen snickerdoodles, a batch of blueberry muffins and a loaf of white bread.  Figured as long as I was making a mess, I might as well make it worth my while cleaning up!  All turned out yummy.  We had some cookies for dessert after dinner, a slice of warm bread with homemade butter later and blueberry muffins and coffee for breakfast this morning.

Going to spend a quiet day reading, then work on a quilt block (hand piecing) after dinner.  Planning sloppy joes and french fries for dinner.  Quick and simple.

The Commemorative Quilt has been unveiled!

The Arizona Commemorative Quilt was officially unveiled in Prescott, AZ a couple of weeks ago at the Sharlot Hall Museum. Sorry I'm so slow getting around to posting pictures. Hope you enjoy! It is really beautiful. The front and back were quilted separately, then joined together with the binding. The Arizona Historical Museum has graciously agreed to give the quilt a permanent home. It will be on display there beginning February 18, 2012 and should be on display for a year. Also on display at the same time will be the "100 Quilts - 100 Years" quilt display. I have seen some of the entries. It will be well worth planning a trip to view these beautiful works of art!!!!!
