The Motivator!

Look ... all finished! Beautifully quilted and bound - thanks so much Barb and Julia! I wish I had a you-beaut camera to do it justice! I had such a lovely time at the retreat when I made this flimsy and look at it now!
Here you can see it in it's true glory closeup - love the funky flowers in the quilting - all in keeping with the Kaffe theme!

I hope you are all enjoying your Easter as much as I am - yesterday 'my best little friends in the world' and I went to the movies - all very accidental, we ended up seeing Bounty Hunter - Byron chose and I think he had seen the great car chase in a trailer - I knew nothing about the movie, so I said 'okay - let's go!' Hmmm, must agree with DD Angela who thinks Gerard Butler is just super gorgeous and as I don't really remember seeing Jennifer Aniston in a movie before (oh, I must have!), I now think she is the finest example of the girl next door, such natural beauty - oh yes, would love to see that couple together in real life! Gee, it is great I can still enjoy a chick-flick! Poor kids, though - they took it all in their stride - I guess anything for an outing with Nanny!
I'm back to looking forward to each day - DH and I have just put tonight's dinner in the slow cooker ... I wonder if maybe I can do a little machine stitching?
Happy Easter Monday!

We saw this movie the other day too, as Alice in Wonderland was full, and I quite enjoyed it too. I think that happens sometimes when you don't know anything about the movie or what to expect. Your quilt is gorgeous too and I am so glad to hear you are feeling better xx
