Baby Quilt etc.

Last Saturday was my birthday which was spent pretty quietly as on Sunday Tony ran the Calgary 1/2 Marathon.  He jumped up on the curb to hand me his mitts and I didn't even get a good shot of him. This is him running away! His time was 2:02 which he was happy with, but says if he had known the time was so close to 2 hours he would've sprinted to get in under 2. For sure, me too!!

Then after we went to the annual Lilac Festival, a very big event here. Several blocks (about 15, I think) are closed to traffic for the day, and people just wander up and down, searching for something to buy, eat or was very busy, and we only stayed about an hour as you couldn't even get close to the tents.

This week Tony is gone for the week, and I am working 4 days- off on Friday. I have been working on a baby quilt for my hair stylist. When I see her in June it will be last time for a year that she cuts my hair!! Yikes- she has been doing it for 5 years, and I am very scared about going to someone else.

I am auditioning border fabric, and will do a very narrow containment border in one colour, and a wider border in another. Just sure which yet. I'd like it to be about 40" square- an infant quilt, perfect to have for the stroller.

This being Wednesday night (guilty pleasure night), I am off to walk Chloe and then watch the Real Housewives of O.C. WOHOOO!

Have a wonderful week.

Scary thought having to find a new hair stylist! Happy belated birthday.

Happy belated birthday! Pretty quilt. I'm sure whichever fabric you use for the border will look like it was meant to be.

Congrats to Tony on his run ... 2:02 is a GREAT time!
