I don't have a picture but I've started sewing 2 of the quilts I cut out this past weekend. Steps to the Stars is a favorite quilt of mine. This is the 2nd time I've made it. I won't be sewing much until I do Glad's Mystery next Thursday & Friday. Until then I'll be on an exotic getaway of my own. Some of my friends are on cruises and have been in Mexico. My family is going to Morton, MN to the casino for an overnight. I hope you are laughing. I believe you must have fun wherever you go.

I knew that I would be able to cut out quilts this past weekend but really wanted to finish a top before I did that. The quilt I chose to finish was Glad Creations Simply Fun. The color inspiration was from a customer at Glads. She used some of these fabrics and I simply had to build on them and do a quilt myself. Choosing fabric is a bit of an addiction. It looks like Christmas and is gorgeous.
I was able to cut out 4 quilts. I used a tall table so my back wouldn't hurt. My arms were a bit sore but that was more because I shoveled the snow.
Just finished crunching my numbers for my tax appointment and now I'm rewarding myself with sewing.

At quilt club tonight we learned about blogging. I brought the snack - dipped gingersnap cookies. Here's a picture and here's the link to the recipe.
I made these at Christmas and my girls loved them so much they said no more putting them on the cookie plates we shared. We're keeping them all for us.
