Another lovely weekend has come to an end. Our weather has been fabulous with very little need for air conditioning, although I'll admit I've turned it on for a couple hours each day, during the hottest hours, especially on Saturday when I was doing some house cleaning. Mornings and evenings, though, are nice and cool.
For Father's Day, Soccer Son came over and cooked dinner--yeah, I know it's not Mother's Day, but I got a pretty sweet deal out of it anyway! For an appetizer, he seared some Ahi tuna and I made a spicy hot and slightly sweet soy dipping sauce. Yum!
For the main course, Soccer Son served barbecued chicken, corn on the cobb, and small red potatoes--all out on the patio. And, of course, we had cherry pie for dessert--my contribution to the meal!
Here's a photo of Soccer Son and his girlfriend, Ms. S. ("Ms. S" will have to do until I think up a better name for her! Soccer Son actually has blue eyes, but when I "fixed" the red eye in the photo, his eyes ended up brown.)
I haven't talked much about quilting lately, but I have been doing a bit--miscellaneous things, for the most part, and a little bit of embroidery work. I finally DID feel like making those hourglass blocks that weren't exciting me too much the other night, and I thought I'd show you a photo of the quilt in progress--this is a BOM-type, mystery-type quilt from Barbara Brackman's Clues in the Calico program.
Each month, we get instructions for another border to add on as this is supposed to be a medallion style quilt. The next border is a dog tooth border using applique to make the "teeth." I think I'll use a light blue again for the background of that border and use the red stripe (from the wide inner border) as the teeth.
I hope that you, too, had a lovely day, however you chose to spend it! Thanks for visiting!
