Pretty good weekend

In spite of this sign of End Times--right at the foot of the bed!!!--I got up and got through the day unharmed.

After a week of frigid temperatures (I know we on the Third Coast are wimps about the cold, but it was in the upper 20s F (-0 C) this week! That is COLD by anyone's measurement!) it was in the 50s on Saturday and the 60s today, so I took advantage of the balmy weather and got a good walk in on both days. I did some cooking for the week: lentil soup on Saturday and beef stew today. And I even got to spend some time in my sewing room.

I added to Constellation Wonkulae and like how it is coming along.

I put the circle skirt circle quilt back on the design wall and am VERY excited about the elements I am thinking about. What do you think?

And I got this little throw quilt out to finish machine quilting. There isn't much left to do on it, so it shouldn't take too long.

Now, the stew is simmering, I have a bourbon and lemon soda in hand and I feel satisfied with the weekend's accomplishments.
