A good start for the weekend

I got up a little after 5 a.m. this morning so I could get my grocery shopping done before I went to work. Giant Eagle is open 24/7 so I headed there first. Then there were a few things on sale at Acme so I headed there next. They don't open officially until 7 a.m., but they open the doors early at 6:35 so that makes it easy to get in and out before work. I am glad this is done so I do not have to leave the house this weekend. Unfortuntely I did not find any Choco' Noir at either store and both have a huge wine shop. If push comes to shove, I guess I could have my brother in Texas see if he can find it (the beverage company that handles Choco' Noir is in Texas) and ship some to me.

I started quilting the John Deere quilt last evening. I worked on it for about an hour. I won't have any problem getting it quilted and bound this weekend. I just wish I could see Marie's face (that is the grandmother) when she opens it. I sure hope she likes it.
Here is the front

and the back

I borrowed these two books from the library and plan on spending some quiet time looking at these while I sip a Mike's hard limeade. I love, love, love the quilt on the cover of Kaffe's book, but I have to make it my own in some way so I will have to think about this quilt for awhile.

I want to get my fabric storage room painted this weekend. I don't know if I will get to installing the window trim, but I want to at least get all the trim painted.

No, this is not the same picture as yesterday - it is another gray morning. At least yesterday about 11 a.m. the sun came out and it was sunny until late afternoon.

Have a great weekend.

I'm thinking that quilt would be neat made with 2 different but similar stripe fabrics.
