More progress on the blue/yellow UFO and my new plates

I have been quilting this piece so that the colors of the thread in the blue area extends from the top to the bottom. I got 16 rows of a light blue and 16 rows of turquoise in the top section of blue and 16 rows in the bottom section of the light blue. I will next quilt the 16 rows of turquoise in the lower blue section. As you can see I am almost done quilting this! Those are some long rows going from the top to the bottom!

When I was in Austin, Glenda and I ate at PF Chang's one night. I had never eaten at a PF Chang before so it was all new to me. The plate/bowl they served me shrimp low mein in was so beautiful I just had to track down a place where I could buy them and I did! I bought these two plates/bowls at I had decided life it too short to eat off ugly, mismatched, chipped plates which is what I used everyday. I ordered these on Wednesday and they came Thursday! They were a bit pricy, but they are heavy and can be used in the microwave, oven, freezer, and can go in the dishwasher. The come in several colors - brown, blue, terra cotta, green and white which is what I bought. These are actually called freestyle bowls and they are made in England. This weekend I am going to clean out the cupboards and put all the mismatched dinnerware in a box for the Habitat Resale store.

Right now it is snowing here in NE Ohio. Yes, you heard me snowing! Here is what was on my car when at first, but the now is heavier now and I can imagine there is more. Good thing I did not take the scraper/brush out of the car yet. Have a wonderful snow free weekend!
