Saturday my friend gifted me with this early birthday present - an orange iPod shuffle. Is this not the cutest thing you've ever seen? Teeny weeny and it clips to your shirt. I loaded it with 260 of my favorite songs and there is still room for a few more. It's unbelieveable that something this small can produce such rich, beautiful sound. I smile every time I look at it!
Saturday I was also able to FINALLY pick up my orange quilt. I was getting a little miffed that my longarm quilter has had it since February, but a series of events prevented her from getting to it in a more timely manner, so here it finally is. I wish I was able to get better photos of the beautiful quilting. She used a whimsical floral pattern and a variegated orange thread with a beautiful sheen to it. This is exactly what I had in mind and I am so happy with the results.
The back of the quilt is this flame fabric and it's flannel. So much fun - I just love everything about this quilt and I'm happy to finally have it home. When I flung it out on the floor to show my family, my DD flopped down on and and pronounced "MINE" but I think I want to hang this one in our entry.
I also found the perfect fabric in my stash for binding, but as my luck would have it, I didn't have quite enough for my binding strips. But not to worry, more is winging its way to me as you read this!
I also spotted an orange Volkswagen GTI at the dealership on my way home Saturday, but after coming home and looking up the price on the Internet, that little beauty won't be coming home with me....
