Progress on the B&W quilt and a busy 5 days

So what did I do in 5 days? Let's start out with quilting. I did the math and I have 92% of the B&W quilt quilted. All I have left to quilt are the black triangles in the outer border. That was a lot of black border to quilt!
Wednesday the band had a show in Cleveland at University Circle. I made those pecan pie mini muffins and giant pan banging chocolate chip cookies for the band and crew.
There was a great crowd! There were people dancing and having a good time. There weirdest thing was that the band had to take a break so they could have a zumba class for a half hour. That was really weird, but so many people came down to the front and they were having a blast. Many knew the steps so I think that the event every Wednesday does this. They already asked us to come back next year. Before the show my nephew was interviewed for 2 minutes on one of the Cleveland tv stations.  By the end of the show so many people came down and stood in front of the stage.
I got 30 bags sewn together to resupply the merch booth. There were only three bags left.
Thursday the band had a show in Kent. It started to sprinkle on my way to my brother's house and by the time we were on our way to Kent it was raining hard. Then it rained even harder once we arrived. We waited around and the weather finally cleared up by 6, but the stage was wet and there was no way we could get set up by 7. The decision was made to postpone the show until the 27th. Here are some pictures of the gorgeous flowers at the venue.
On Friday I sewed together the last 21 bags that were cut out.
Made myself a loaf of Italian Harvest Bread
Saturday I mowed and trimmed the front yard and the neighbor came over and helped me pull off a few more boards off the deck.  I forgot to get a picture.  I spent the rest of the day cleaning and working on the B&W quilt. Sunday was doing dishes, quilting on the B&W quilt and making double chocolate zucchini muffins to take to work.  Those are white chocolate chips peaking out the top. 
This week is going to be busy, a doctor's appointment, check up for my tires, a show on Friday night in Lorain, Ohio, and Saturday a show in Kent.  The show on Friday should be a good one.  We are opening up for the number one Led Zeppelin tribute bands in the country.  They are expecting 7 to 10 thousand people!

Yay, you are almost done with the black and white quilt!!
That had to be disappointing to get to the show site and then have it cancelled. I hope it goes well this weekend.
