Blessed Day!

First, there was Quilting, which was full of food, friends and  LAUGHTER! (What happens at quilting, STAYS at quilting!)

We all started a quilt today using the same pattern. We are making the quilt Dutch Breeze, from the September/October 2010  McCall’s quilting magazine.  Here is one block from each of us. Most of us chose scrappy, so probably no two blocks will look alike. Row one left to right: Margaret, Michelle, Ronelle. Row two: Leslie, Renea, Polly. Bottom block: Kate. They are all beautiful. I can’t wait to work more on my quilt! (click to enlarge)

After quilting, Louie and I went to the Quad Cities. I decided that today was the day I was getting my shingles vaccination whether I had to pay for it myself or not. Too many people I know have had shingles once or more, and I don’t want to join them. I was PLEASANTLY surprised when I was only charged a $25 copay. Paying outright would have cost me $203.99. Thank you Lord for that blessing!

Next we went to Red Robin for supper. We picked up my sister on the way to the QC’s and took her with us.

…and finally, we went to see Courageous at the Cinema 53 theaters. Awesome Awesome Awesome…(did I say Awesome?) movie. Wonderful! Go see it, especially if you have children at home.

Hope your day was as wonderful as mine.

Be blessed,

Michelle

Wow, that looks like a powerful movie, thanks for the recommendation! Looks like you had a fun day at your Quilt Retreat, and I'm glad to know you are now safe from Shingles - been there, done that, no fun! Have a great one!

Wow, you had a very full, fun day!
Love all the blocks. I think the quilts are going to be very fun.

The quilt blocks are all pretty. Couldn't choose one over another. What a fun day! Tell me the truth, please. How many tissues did you go through during the movie? Looks really good, but really emotional.

PS: No, you don't want the shingles.
