Beautiful weather!

We have a saying here in Texas - if you don't like the weather, just wait a week!  Last week we had ice and snow and very cold weather, and this week it has been wonderful.  It should hit a high of 78 degrees today - a little cloudy and breezy, but I am without the coat and scarf and am loving it! 
I haven't quilted much in the past few days - I've been busy at the office and have had meetings or volunteer stuff in the evenings and by the time I get home, feed hubby (not to mention gather eggs, feed chickens and dog) I'm pooped and ready for bed. 
I've almost finished quilting my country mystery quilt - it has been fun.  I am doing SID on the pieced blocks, and trying out some new fill patterns on the applique blocks.  It is taking a lot of time, but it has been rewarding.  I am still learning so much each time I use my Gammill.
While surfing the web the other night, I came upon a blog by Arlette called Polka Dot Pineapple.  She had a tutorial for the cutest pin cushion - I went right upstairs and made one.  I'll post a pic of mine later, but for now here is a link to her blog:  http://mousechirpy-polkadotpineapple.blogspot.com/ - she has several very cute projects and lots of tutorials.  Love it!! 
That's all for now - have a great day!  Enjoy this weather!
