Let the good times roll?

Let's just say that this trip wasn't quite the mardi gras that last week was.  Last week, I traveled mostly alone and the out of office hours got to be about me.  This week, I traveled as "team" and it had nothing to do with me.  I got to make some of the decisions about where we'd go and what we'd do in the planning stage, but we didn't do those things.  My co-worker made different choices and told me what we would be doing. 

I did NOT fight back.  She does not have that filter that most people have and arguing with someone like that is pointless.  Her choices were not as tasty as mine.  And, there was no walking and enjoying the sights.  It was me, white-knuckled and wide-eyed, with my bosses boss in the backseat. 

So, let's look at some quilts instead.  I love this pattern and a friend made this quilt and I love it.  Most I've seen are in cool colors.  I love the hot color choices she made. 

I have a thing for quilts that weave.  This one caught my eye. 

A little applique.  I love this kind of work, but I don't have that kind of patience. 

NO comments to add to this one.  It says everything, even the light border that is there, but not distracting.

A hosta in cool colors. 

Love paper piecing.  There were at least two quilts that used the lozenge shaped hexagons that are elongated. 

And, how about a little whimsy!

Everybody have a great weekend.  Next week, we have Rob's Mom.  She is the best houseguest ever.  That's what all the cleaning has been about.  Good food will be served.  Rob has already asked me to make Indian and Thai because she is flavor adventurous.  I'll squeeze in a melt in your mouth pot roast that will give us sandwiches.  And, some cookies because she has a sweet tooth.  Something without too much sugar tho.  And a big bowl of hummus. 

I guess I better get thinking about that.  Or we gonna have PB&J.

Loved the quilts, more than I expected as they aren't "Lane" quilts". Once I got over that, they were delightful choices of colors and patterns. Thank you for sharing them.

Sorry about your white knuckle work trip. Once again, I admire your class in dealing with an awkward situation.

What a treat to have a guest who like to try new foods. Rob's mother sounds like she'd be a delightful and appreciative diner. Enjoy her visit.

Lane is by far my moms favorite son-in-law or in-law in general. She loves talking (bragging) about him to all her friends. He has gotten her to eat and love foods my other brothers and sisters won't even consider trying.
Mom loves to come and visit and we love having her!

Oh, Lane-- I don't know if I'm more happy that you loved my quilt or that you called me your friend. :) Have a great weekend!!!

It may not have been the best work-away, but you survived and handled it like a trouper. Enjoy Eobs moms visit. Mary
