This weekend was spent doing a variety of stuff around the house. Not one single stitch in a quilting or stitching project. I did get to knit a bit Saturday and my sweater is coming along. Late last weekend I finished this applique block for my $5 quilt. I'm enjoying the applique and I like the pieced background. Between the two it takes a lot of time though.
Today my parents and sister came up and we celebrated Chris's birthday. He wanted to cook his own birthday dinner. I bought a whole beef tenderloin from Costco and he trimmed it up and cut it into filets and grilled it. I have to say, was the BEST steak I've ever eaten. Much better than Morton or Ruths Chris. He also served roasted fresh asparagus wrapped in bacon, grilled sweet potatoes and corn. I made the birthday cake (which I had to make twice) and salad. I also neglected to take any photos. We had a great time and it was great to spend time with family.
I'm gearing up for a girls weekend! More on that later....for now let's just say I'm excited!
