What Do You Love?

My sister is making a list of things she loves.  Sounds like an easy thing to do, right?  But she set her goal rather high - at least 100 things - so I thought I'd ask you to post what you love. 

Things are very busy around here.  I just finished picking out fabrics for 2 new designs I will preview at Quilt Market in Houston in Oct.  One is Happy Halloween and the other is Celebrate Christmas.  They are both appliqued and pieced designs.  I spent over 20 hours picking out fabrics.  The fabric selection is the most difficult thing because I send the block designs and the fabrics off to Nancy so she can applique and embroider them for me.  It is so different from when I do it myself because if I don't like the fabric choices as I go along with the applique I can change it.  But when it is all sent off at once  I always have to have a little faith (and hold my breath some) until the blocks come back to me.  So far I've been very happy with the results, except one time, and on that one I am going to remake the design with new fabrics.  I guess that is pretty good odds considering I've sent 25 designs off so far!!

And the big news is ...... my youngest daughter, Allison, is getting married here at our house on Sept. 1st.  There is much to be done so I have my work cut out for me between now and then.  This Sat. is the shower so that should be fun and I'm going to do a little cooking for it on Friday.  I'm going to try and find a recipe for a flourless cake because Allison has some dietary restrictions.  Anyone know a good recipe?  I figured I'd try online and see what I find. 

Well it's time to get back to work.  Enjoy your day and if you entered the pattern giveaway on the Henry Glass website, please check your email because there are still 4 winners that haven't gotten back to us.  Mary Jane
