We had a breakfast date for some gourmet waffles at Off the Waffle with Erik and Mae. On our way, we got a nice view of Mt. Hood.
It was great seeing Erik and Mae. We haven't seen them since before our trip, and the waffles were really something special. I kind of stuck with the apple and cinnamon variety. Mae's had bacon, pears, basil, and maple syrup. It was so yummy (she gave me a taste). Erik and Mike each had one with goat's cheese and topped with an egg. There was some other yummy stuff and Mike added bacon to his. We'll probably do this again, and I'll be more adventurous next time. As we were getting ready to leave, it started raining again, but the afternoon was nice.
My friend Jennifer and I were discussing whether my Wheel Estate quilt needed a catio. I'm afraid their straight-on perspective might make it difficult to create an identifiable catio. However, I started thinking I could add cats to them, and so I dug through my cat fabrics and pulled out this perfect fat quarter. There are lots of different cats, and I can fussy cut them to be added to the quilt blocks.
And so I went back and added a cat to January's blue block. Do you see it?
And then, I included one in February's brown block.
And that brings me up to day with this one for:
Now I'm anxious for March's color announcement.
I have a day at home today, and I need to catch up on some housework, and get back into the groove with my 10k steps per day. I've been doing really well, but kind of lost my mojo for it over the weekend. I really just wanted to work on quilt blocks. I'll get back to it today. There's just a little bit left to stitch on the Gingerbread Square block I'm working on currently. Possibly I can finish it today. Then, I'll be starting on my project for:
You might recall that I'm going to make this Valentine's day tablerunner.
This little cutie is from Little Bits of This & That. Sherri was kind enough to post a free pattern for her Be Mine table runner. I had in mind to have this finished for Valentine's Day 2016, but then, we weren't even home for Valentine's Day. That's okay. I'll do it now so I'll have it for next year.
