All About Harry

This weekend was all about Harry, Harry Potter that is. I ordered my book through Amazon who guaranteed delivery by 6pm on Saturday. That was best for me as I had to work Saturday morning and I know that I would have been reading it at work because I would have had no willpower. I got home by 1:30 and was desperately searching for a package left at my house. Mail had been delivered but NO book. I started to sweat. I went online and got the tracking number. When I went to UPS online, I got the message that the package had be scheduled for a later delivery date at my request. You could have peeled me off the ceiling. A quick phone call reassured me that my book was being delivered and that was a wrong message. 30 minutes later, Brown was knocking at my door and the reading frenzy started. What a wonderful book!!!! I would read and then stop because I was worried about what was going to happen to Harry. I am not going to give anything away to anyone that has not read but is going to read the book. I will say that if you have not read the series, then I encourage you to. I did not read them until the 6th book came out and I thought that I should start. They are wonderful, magical and greatly entertaining. I recommend them highly!!!

Scrap Baby Quilt

Finally getting around to posting. What has been holding me back is dragging out the camera cord so that I could post a picture. Of course, I also had to fold the laundry on the couch so it wouldn't show up in the picture. Yes, I know everyone has it but it doesn't mean that you want to see it. LOL
This is a baby quilt that I have played with this week. I feel like a Stashbuster. This came completely from scraps from the flimsy that I have done that will eventually get to my room (the shoemaker kids have no shoes ----I have no quilt for my bed). I am having a radical thought that I could possibly quilt this myself. I have a quilting sewing machine and am very used to my walking foot but have only tackled one baby quilt before.
You may be wondering why I am making a baby quilt. For several reasons, one - this is the rest of the scraps that I have and two - this is possibly for my furbaby Bea. She could have her own quilt (she has her own hand knitted throw) that matches her Mama's. We will see.
