New York

I went to New York City to celebrate my birthday with my son and daughter in law. It was wonderful. The weather was nice and sunny. We did a lot of walking, eating, and visiting. I cooked on Friday night for them and a friend of theirs. We rented a zipcar and drove north along the Hudson River and stopped in Cold Springs, New York for dinner at Cathryn's Tuscan Grill. The food there was awesome and the town was quaint with lots of antique shops.

We went to only one quilt shop while I was there. The City Quilter was a shop we visited the last time I was in the city. I was on a mission. I was looking for a few more 30's prints for my Feed Sack quilt. I found 6 pieces for the quilt. I got them in 1/4 yd pieces and they are already cut up for the quilt.

I have not done much quilting since I have gotten back. I am getting ready to leave for work. I am working all day and will take my Olympic project along in case we are not busy. I would like to get that finished. I am going to stop at the quilt shop on the way to work and pick up a pattern that will use up lots of my scraps. Yeah!!!

Tomorrow I am walking with my mom and sister if the weather allows. Then I am going to my other sister's house to spend the night and part of the next day together. We are both off on Monday. Then I will be going to my Quilted Chaos meeting. It is my small quilt group.
