This & That

I’ve been really busy lately, but nothing much blog worthy has been going on.

Sandra and I went to see Miss Saigon on Saturday at the Four Seasons Centre in Toronto.  We’ve both seen Miss Saigon before but I’m not sure where my head was the first time I saw it, but I enjoyed it much more this time.  I didn’t remember much about it, except the helicopter, and I also didn’t remember it being so sad.

After the theatre, we went for dinner at Tundra.  Some high end Toronto restaurants participate in what is called Summerlicious where there is a prix fixe menu so us poor folk can enjoy some of the finer dining available.  The food and service was excellent! 

Leo has gone fishing this weekend so Ben, Molly & I have been holding down the fort. 

I got my Birthday Presents top put together and it’s now in the pile to be quilted.

I also got this very old UFO finished and I’ve just embroidered a label for it.

Crossed Path Quilt 002

The floral fabric in this is one of the first fabrics I ever bought for my stash.  Contrary to popular belief, it didn’t come from the 70s.

I’m not sure how much quilting is going to be done in the next couple of weeks as I have lots of other fun things planned and I also have a date with Bon Jovi next Tuesday – I can hardly wait!!!!

I love the Birthday Presents. It is one of my favorite patterns. I did one in batiks as well a few months ago. Fabulous :)
