Sunday in the rain

Well yes, this is the pacific northwest and we are beginning to develop clearly webbed feet.  Oh it's awful.  But even more so, the poor people of Japan.  Oh - I don't even know what to say except my heart aches for them.

This afternoon's project was completing quilting the borders on the bricks and stepping stones quilt.  I've decided that I will give it to my son for his birthday.  He is setting himself up with a study/den and music room, so am hoping that this little lap quilt will go nicely in there.

I can't tell you how delighted I am to report that my machine is working very well.  I haven't solved all the thread questions (which one works best for what application) but it is so reassuring to have it work properly.

And then because it just seemed like the right thing to do, I made the world's easiest lemon pie,
Use a purchased graham cracker crust.  Fill it with a mix of 2 cans of sweetened condensed milk and the juice (and some pulp and grated peel) of 4 lemons.  Mix and chill.  Fabulous.  I will be required to do a bit of quality control in front of the TV tonight - just to be sure, but you know. . . . . . . .

A semi busy week ahead.  I'll keep you posted.
