Thursday--I'm leaving with the royal jewels!

Thursday, January 14, 2010
Found lots of "royal jewels" I'm taking with me as I end my reign.  I decided
to"lift" the sapphires, they are SO pretty!














I have finished my blue bricks stepping stones.  I haven't any particular plans for this quilt, at the moment it's on our bed and my husband's first question was--"can I lay on this or is it for someone??" 







My reign has been fun, but it's time for someone else to be Queen.  Have fun picking your crown, scepter, jewels--and the gowns.  Just don't try to deliver papers in the gowns, they DO drag in all the snow, and are very hard to fit inside a 4 wheel drive!   And of course I need to include a picture of the finished quilt--


Tomorrow we are heading to Sioux Falls, we need to have a little warranty work done on our car (nothing major--I can't adjust the steering wheel or figure out the remote starter!) and will have it serviced and also plan a little "retail therapy".  I HAVE COUPONS!!!!  I doubt I will find the bargains Jay did, but I need a dark to go with my Japanese Royalty fabric.  And another package of batting using a coupon would be good!  So goodbye all my loyal subjects---and cheer on the new queen!  Long live the queen!

That looks lovely on the bed! Nice going!

I don't blame you for lifting the sapphires. A girl needs some souvenir of her reign, no matter how brief!

Oh please!! We all know you have that gown hidden in the back of your closet and the jewels in the loose floorboard, left there for safety... and it's also your little secret...... that gown and crown will be put on when you are alone, so nobody will know.....

Love that quilt!! Keep it for you!!!! It suits the bed and hubby want to use it, so, make it yours!!!
enjoy your Thursday!!!

Ohhh, I love it all in 1 colorway! Your husbands comment is very funny - the husband of a quilter just never knows! If it were mine I think I would name it Blue Winter - blue seems better than Gray. 1 day of sun since 12/31. Cheers! Evelyn
