Quilt Show

Yesterday Rachel and I visited the Baltimore Heritage Quilters' Guild's Quilt Expo 2009 . Its happening again today (Sunday) from 10am-5pm at Goucher College in Towson if you are interested.

It was lovely to see all of the quilts, but my favorite by far was this beauty made by my Mama just for me! Its so amazingly gorgeous that I think I may be too scared to take it home! It was many years in the making and is all hand quilted too!  THANKS MOM! I may have to have kids now, just so I have someone to pass this quilt on to...I'm completely inspired now to make some quilts of my own (I haven't made one since college..) They've been floating around in my head for a while...just need a few more hours in the day! 

Will be posting a few more little monsters later on...

Birthday Thanks!

Well today was my birthday, and though it was an hour shorter, due to daylights savings, it managed to seem extra long, as I celebrated all weekend! The weather was amazingly beautiful, in the 60s and 70s! Friday I went for a long evening stroll and an amazing healthy dinner of french fries and beer at the One World Cafe with two of my buds, then Saturday, a hike in the woods and stop at the conservatory to oggle at the giant aloe plants and dream of California...a nice nap, then dinner at my favorite vegetarian restaurant Liquid Earth, THEN went to see a play written, performed and produced by some of my favorite Baltimore folks...THEN Duckpin Bowling with my dear friends! Then today, another long walk to Charles Village and a drive uptown to eat pizza and the best hot milk cake ever with my familia! Amazing!

Now I'm sitting down writing a post on my new laptop courtesy of Jay! What an amazing birthday weekend! Home-made presents all around, granola, a bracelet, and this adorable apron made by my mama! I love 'em all! Thanks everyone for making me feel so loved!
