A beautiful spring day!

Yesterday I escaped and went to Montreal for an appointment with my Professor. Afterward I had a lunch date with my dear friend Judy.

Judy and I go back a long ways. We had lunch at Hurley's Irish Pub in downtown Montreal. It was wonderful to relax and just catch up on news. She looked so cheerful! She has a week left before she goes on maternity leave. Of course, you all know what that means, get quilting Carole!
I have been working with EQ6, designing a quilt for this little girl that will soon join our world. Perhaps I'm weird or nuts as Suzette would say (I'm teasing you) but I like to feel what colours the child would like. I'm not a pastel type of girl but I have made pastel baby quilts only because that's the vibe I received from the child. This little one strikes me as a bright and cheerful quilt kid! No Yellow Brick Road for her! She's a designer quilt kid! lol

Last night was my Sit and Sew with my friend Patty, who lives up the street from me. She'll either knits or work on a weaved rug while I do my quilting stuff. Patty and I have a lot in common, so conversation is never at a stand still. We usually make ourselves a latte or tea and enjoy a special treat. Last night she brought some pastries from Plattsburgh. Yum, yum they were delicious! She has a daughter that is a year younger than mine, and they always want to join us. The rule is firm, kids and husbands are not allowed! It's our play date! lol Besides, it starts past their bed time!

As for Carolyn's quilt, I did get the binding on last night. I managed to make my cutting mistakes work for binding strip, it was a close call. I didn't have too much excess. Phew! I still have some hand sewing to do on it and have made it a goal to have it done by next Tuesday. I will post photos when it's finished.

Off for some S.E.X! Gotta get that designer girl some fabric!

Carole, I like the idea of a quilting playdate with a friend. Hmmm, I might want to set something up. I've never been to Canada but I have heard how wonderful Montreal is.

I also had a "sit and sew" last night with four girlfriends.
Isn't it the best!! :-))

Sounds like a wonderful evening! The play date is a great idea.

Your day in Montreal sounds wonderful. I have never been to Montreal but I really would love to go there one day.

S.E.X for me tomorrow - I am off to the Fraser Valley Quilt show. So hopefully the S.E.X will be good there :))

What a wonderful day you had having lunch with a friend and play date with a sewing buddy. Those are the days I look forward to. I'm off to a Quilt Show today, same one as Pam.
