Memorial Week-end!

I hope that you had a good memorial weekend.  My dad was a WWII Navy Veteran and former prisoner of war.  Not a day goes by without thinking of him and my mother.   My sister and son usually places flowers on our family's grave sites (Western Washington).  Since I will be retired next year, I plan on joining them!

I have been off work since Wednesday and have to return to work tomorrow for two days and then have my new four day week end!  I got my retirement papers in the mail on Saturday, another step to September!!

I played golf Thursday, Saturday and Sunday and finally, I mean finally,  played a decent round on Sunday.  I made cookies again, Butterfinger cookies and then this afternoon, I made my favorite shortbread cookies.  I put White Chocolate M&Ms in the batter!  I don't know how long that this will last but we will enjoy the homemade cookies while we can.

I finished up my "Lucky Stars" quilt.  I was going to make it a queen size, but having just finished a queen "Swoon", I decided that a lapsize was ok!  I used several collections of Fig Tree and am thinking about putting a border on it.  What do you think?

  1. I look forward to having you along next Memorial Weekend. We had good weather Saturday in Bellingham. And we had bad weather yesterday in Everett for our cemetery visits. The forecast was for crappy weather today. But it is the best day of the three.
    I want a close up of this quilt please :)

  3. My dad was a WWII Navy vet also Sandy. Every time I see the pictures of those still here I think of dad and the sacrifices they made for their country. He was at Pearl Harbor.

  5. The quilt is lovely. Lap size is a good size. Much easier to manage to quilt on your own machine my thinking! My grandfather was a WW2 veteran too, of the Royal Australian Army. He fought in Libya against the Germans led by Rommel. You will love retirement I suspect. My Mum retired two years ago and has been busy since! How she ever fit work in has her puzzled.
