The end of a busy week!

I have spent most of this week quilting this monster log cabin quilt. It is mine, and I've entered it in the TVQG quilt show, so I really need to get it done:

I played bridge at the Studio on Tuesday night with Ann, and we played really well. 1.70 points, came in second overall.

The Texas Sage, also known as the Barometer Bush, is blooming in our front yard. It's never had so many flowers! Leucophyllum frutescens is called the Barometer Bush because, according to local legend, it only blooms when it is about to rain.

Brian asked for a water feature for his birthday, so today we picked up the pieces. He's going to assemble it himself. The water will bubble out of the cobalt blue pot:

I'll be working on the log cabin this weekend while Brian works on his fountain.

Beautiful, large log cabin quilt. Love the color selections. Best wishes on your entry.

Looks like a great water feature. Hope you post a finished photo. Happy Birthday to Brian!

Have a great weekend!
