The other day while getting a few items at a local home improvement store, I strolled by the gardening department where I couldn't resist picking up this beautiful gardenia.
On Friday, my friends Edith and Laurel and I headed up to Contoocook, NH, where Edith was dropping off a quilt at Dancing Crane Quilting. Since I was riding shotgun on the way up, I was able to snap these shots of the Boston skyline and the Zakim bridge with my iPhone.
After dropping off the quilt and having lunch, we headed to a favorite NH quilt shop, Quilted Threads in nearby Henneker. You'll be shocked to read that I only purchased three fat quarters.
I have an idea for a mixed media piece percolating in my mind for which these pieces might work well.
This lovely barn is directly across the street from Quilted Threads.
Cuteness Alert: One of the bloggers that I follow is LuAnn Kessi. She is a quilter who lives on a ranch. Her blog features her photography, ranch life, and her quilting projects. Last Saturday, she posted photos of Lucy, a nanny goat, who had just had her first babies, triplets! Click here to see Lucy and her babies. If you scroll back through her recent posts, you can see photos and videos of some of the calves that have recently been born. Her blog always makes me smile.
We have snow this morning, but it will soon change to rain as temperatures rise. No need to shovel as tomorrow it will be close to 50 degrees. You have to love New England weather!
Have a perfectly lovely, creative, productive, fun week.
