Popcorn, Indiana

Have you ever tried this?? I bought a large bag yesterday from Whole Foods Market. Didn't open it until today and now only 1/2 a bag is left! Oh my gosh this is some GOOD kettlecorn! I don't recommend trying can't stop eating it...I'm not kidding!

Avalon Quilt in Chocolate Lollipop

 Here's the quilt for my sister's Birthday. I hope she likes it. I was hoping it would be a tad wider, but this will have to do. measures 62"x81". Made with Anna Maria Horner's Chocolate Lollipop.

 I ended up just using white thread to quilt it. It turned out fine.(the grid kinda looks wonky in the picture, but it's not in real life. I think maybe the way it was hanging on my fence or something made it look a little "off") thing off my to-do list! Many more to go.....
 oh and on a side note...hubby didn't make it home yet. His plane broke before take off, so the other 3 planes arrived home but his didn't. They had to use a crane to lift the plane off the air craft carrier and then maintenance was going to work on it. I'm hoping he comes home tonight! For now, he's stuck in San Diego just waiting. It's no fun having all the other husbands and daddy's home but mine :(  (yeah...I'm having a pity party!)

Hubby returns tomorrow!

Finally, he comes home tomorrow after being gone for two months! Now we can celebrate our daughter's 2nd birthday, one week late; have my mother in law visit next Wednesday for a week; and go on a weekend getaway to Vegas, just the two of us, next weekend. Then he leaves the 19th for another month :(
Freedom isn't free. Thank you, hubby, for all you do! I love you!
