On a Monday

Cards with the ladies tonight.  It's my turn to host.  Wonderful Husband spent the day preparing the food while I was at work.  I came home to a clean house and wonderful smells.  He even made his own pita bread of all things!  I popped out into the backyard to see if I could find some winter/spring branches to cut to make an artsy arrangement and yes, I did find those but I also found a clump of intensely purple mini irises that were blooming dramatically in the back flower beds.  I don't think I have ever noticed them before.  I think they bloom so early that I don't notice them!

Have you ever changed the blade in your rotary cutter and be astounded by the difference it makes?  That was me yesterday.  Good grief!!!  I really should do that more often.  KarrieLyne at Freckled Whimsy had a tip on her blog a bit ago.  She was going to order some carpet cutter blades for cheap, cheap, cheap to see if they were as good as the "quilting" rotary cutter blades.  I wonder...

Here's a picture of the couch quilt already to go under the sewing machine next weekend for it's very own quilty experience.  I had fun with the back.  Used a bunch of the leftovers from the front and then some yardage by 3 Sisters for Moda.  I think it is from a line called Chocolate.  But I am not sure.  It is lovely though and goes nicely with the other 3 Sister's fabric I used for the front along with a whole lot of other stuff.

Happy Monday!
