Have you been to Delaware? What can you do there? Ordinarily I would visit a National Park, but Delaware does not have one. I'm not terribly interested in visiting the beach. If your suggestion is 5 year old friendly that would be a bonus. Just a day trip... (My Geography fan is apparently collecting states.)
Speaking of 5 year old friendly, we are headed back to Quilt Odyssey in Hershey, PA & Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA in a couple weeks. (As of now - Quilt Show on Friday, Amusement Park on Saturday - we booked one nights stay in a hotel, I would like to visit the Country Kitchen in Intercourse, PA on the way home.)
Not the best photo, but this is my life right now. She hopped up to "see me" but when I reached out to pet her she ran away. So sad, I eventually followed her (as she wanted to begin with) she has a full food bowl & 2 bowls of fresh kitty water. What more could she want? Oh yeah - chicken or beef or fish. Too bad kitty momma is sipping on an iced mocha. :o)
My son is kind of into dinosaurs.
So the Smithsonian's dinosaur exhibit is closed for 5 years. Good thing he likes other things too. The boys left me to rest while they went to the National Mall to the Natural History museum - just in case & to see the ocean exhibit.
I am kind of addicted to Eleanor Burns & I am going to have to blame Carla for this new addiction. I've been watching her TV Shows - they are on her website, on Vimeo, &on Youtube. (& I have invested in a couple rulers & a couple books...)
I have accepted a commission to make a wedding canopy (Chuppah) for a couple in Israel. The center is with a machine embroiderer as I type. There is no way that I could appliqué the quote like on my chuppah.
The commission will be similar but different.
Still thinking about how to use those warm/cool squares... Maybe as Eleanor Burns style flying geese.
