I'm making a quilt in honor of this coming year, called (so clever, right?) "23". I have to thank, a million times over, Rita (and her MIL!) over at Red Pepper Quilts for the inspiration and advice (although I have to appologize, there's no way I could have hand pieced these! it's machine piecing for me until I'm in retirement I'm afraid).
A few of my favorites so far....but, really, I love them all. They're each such teenie little Escher-esque quilt-y works of art. Um, not to brag or anything, hah!
I've got 15 blocks down, 8 to go. They're completely addictive.
Two more exciting things, today my mom is coming in to town to see me, aaaand Saturday, for my birthday present, Mark is taking me to stay a night HERE...
I have wanted to stay here ever since I was a little girl and we would drive by on the way from Arkansas to Branson/Silver Dollar City. I thought it was a magical princess castle that only celebrities could stay in! We are like....sooo thrilled. Even if we can't afford the spa luxuries ($190+20% "service fee" for a couple's massage!). There will totally be chocolate covered strawberries, champagne, and hot tubbage though. Eeeep!
