Mela's first "apartment", and apparently she loves it. I cannot wait to meet her, hold her, in less than 4 months! July 28th due date. You can already see she is beautiful and ready for us!
Yesterday I went to see my Ice Crystals quilt hanging in the show at Lower Mill Gallery in Honeoye. When Elaine, Martha, Mary Lee and I arrived around 11:00 AM, there was a shower going on in the room. We couldn't see most of the exhibit and worse yet, hot, steaming serving containers were placed on a table directly in front of two quilts. Disappointing and surprising that an art gallery would carry out such a plan.
We soothed and abated our woe's by indulging in Tom Wahls and Chestnut Bay Quilt Shop. Burger, fries, homemade root beer and fabric!
I made a few quilting stitches in Bullseye. Oh no. Unsightly bearding from the batting. Having spent over two hours basting this, I don't relish the thought of doing it again. I will try quilting with silk thread, using Thread Heaven. Maybe the thread will glide through all layers, leaving batting inside.
I have learned:
- In my 34th year of employment, I have become the first female Executive Board Member on my union local. Of course I was the first female Stockkeeper in this local as well. Much to learn. Look forward to it.
- Mela is 22 weeks this week. I loved being pregnant. I love seeing my daughter pregnant.
- Caponata. Yummy Italian made with eggplant, tomatoes and onion.
