Emily and I have been exchanging blue and yellow blocks each month and I finally finished hers and got it in the mail. I can see this block as a full sized quilt.
I finished the binding on two of the quilts that I had Mary longarm for me. She did a fabulous job, as she always does. Thank you, Mary. I wanted to get the doll quilt washed before taking a picture of it for you, but my washing machine decided to stay on vacation even after we returned from ours. The part needed of course was backordered.
Look at the sweet hearts.
I just loved using the leftover strips in my binding on this one.
The mailman brought me a great package this week from Rhonda. She has a sense of humor, I think, quite like mine. I had won some fabulous fabric in a metal basket and a ruler grabber in a giveaway that she just had. When I opened the box all of these adorable little fogs popped out of it. Sooooo cute! The card was also hysterical! Thank you, Rhonda. It did give me a great laugh for the day.
Since we were in Lincoln Park, we visited their zoo. Can you believe it was actually FREE to get into it? What a fabulous thing that is for young families. I won't bore you with all of the animals, but DH liked this one because she was on watch while he was able to get his afternoon rest!!!!!!
This building is called The Wave and is the tallest skyscraper designed by a female architect. I guess you could say that she was going to have none of the boring square looks to her building.
These are the three oldest skyscrapers in Chicago. Beautiful, aren't they?
A view of the newer Chicago. The river was considered the dividing point between "old" Chicago and "new" Chicago. The division has moved somewhat further away from the river as newer buildings were built to replace some of the older ones.
Well....we were looking for fall colors in the trees!!!!
