Super Sunday....

It was a Super Sunday...not because of the Super Bowl, but because I actually had time to relax.

This morning, Jeff and I went to breakfast and then to the shop so I could cut out a "Take 5" quilt. I wanted something to work on while he watches the game . So, I got it cut out and we headed home.

I went grocery shopping yesterday to pickup some treats and a few snacks for him to enjoy while he's yelling at the TV. Shrimp Cocktail, Chips and dip, Cup Cakes and we're going to try a homemade pizza. Since cooking is not one of my favorite things, the pizza is refered to as Cooks Surprise. That basically means - the Cook is surprised if it turns out.

Well, I got the top of the quilt done...except the outer border. I have two choices and wanted to have the top done so I could decide which compliments the center best. This is a pretty easy and fun quilt to make. If you like puzzles, you'll love "Take 5" by The Teacher's Pet. I like a project that doesn't require alot of time but gives you nice results. This was the perfect project for me.

Now to go sit and watch the game...... GO COLTS!!!!!

Happy Quilting
