Yesterday I was just lagging. Tired and dragging and sluggish but even so I got my crumb quilt pieced together, sans border. Haven't downloaded the photos yet, so instead you get a picture of my lazy Pokey girl.
Today I did much better. Did some hand quilting (actually feel like I'm going to finish Merry Penguins soon) while watching Desperate Housewives Season Two and While You Were Sleeping - one of my favorite movies ever. Washed and ironed a load of fabric and got started on cutting strips from the fabric that I have been buying since I got back to the states in Sept. Had so much fun piecing with Bonnie that I want to keep playing in the utility quilt vein, even though I don't have crumbs and I don't have enough fabric for the quilt to really be scrappy. Gotta do the best I can. It's going to be fun and bright and intense.
My poor husband has gotten saddled with all the work of moving into the new Paris apartment (heh heh heh). He's gotten everything unpacked now and some lamps to brighten the place up, so it's starting to come together. There are several butcher shops in the area and now he's found the fromagerie (cheese shop). I'm really pleased that he's been reading the Les Halles Cookbook by Anthony Bourdain (which is a real hoot - Bourdain's abrasive personality really shines through) and getting excited about cooking with all the fresh ingredients there.
Howler is yelling at me for attention. He was so quiet (mostly) while Bonnie was here... Guess I better go stand over him at the food bowl and give him some loving. Ya'all take care.
