I've Found Mary!!

Talk about being the lazy blogger........ I win the prize!!! Where in the world have I been? I lost myself to company, travels, projects, gardening, cleaning (which is what I should be doing), reading...

Company started in March and appeared every month through yesterday. Last night my husband and I sat at our little bar and toasted the quiet normalcy with a wonderful vino rosso. We almost giggled knowing that no one was going to appear until our daughter comes home for Thanksgiving.

Don't get us wrong... We love to have visitors from California. We catch up on all the news of our old school district. I love finding out about my former first graders and what they're up to. And, we do live by the beach. CA people love our beach because it is warm. The Atlantic vs the Pacific is like No Wet Suit vs Wet Suit! The pacific is cold!!

But, now we're alone. It's quiet. I need to pull weeds.   Forget that! I NEED to quilt. I'm going back to work on the Italian quilt and wrap that baby up! It is not going to be a UFQ... unfinished quilt. Do you even remember the Italian quilt?...

We went to Italy last fall and I was inspired by the marble floors at San Marcos in Venice. The floors are quilt patterns done in marble and granite! While everyone else was looking up, I had my eyes and camera on the floor.  Check it out.

What quilter wouldn't be inspired by this?

So, I'm off to the sewing room (which also needs to be cleaned). DH is playing golf. The morning is mine!!

Hugs to you from Me...
