At the invitation of our church leader, who we revere as a prophet, I'm posting a few things I'm grateful for right now:

When our children were very young we lived in a suburb of Washington DC in Northern Virginia. Often we would meet Daddy after work and stop at a fast food place for supper. Our children became VERY familiar with them. However, as our family grew to five children we decided that eating out was too expensive. The first time we chose to eat at home the children asked, "Where are we going to eat tonight?" And we answered, "At Mom's Cafe!" They were so excited to try a new place. Ha ha! We pulled into the driveway and they were totally puzzled. It only worked a few times before they caught on and didn't want to go to "Mom's Cafe". But we didn't care, we went anyway.
Hence, my kitchen became known as Mom's Cafe.
Fast forward many years and all the children are leaving home. They asked me to put together a cookbook with all the family favorites. I promised, worked on it a bit, procrastinated and promised some more.
This summer I decided to get it done.
Tah-Dah! (And yes, I'm inadvertently revealing my true identity, but hey, we're among friends here.)
That's a huge project completed and crossed off my list. Now on to some T-shirt quilts and photo albums.
Oh my. I'm tired already!

|I wish I could share the fragrance too.|
|Neighbor's dark purple lilac - smells really good also!|

We got to the point of assembling our quilts and I didn't like the way it went together according to the pattern so I played around with mine a bit and came up with what I think is a better layout.
Here are the two quilts side by side. Mine is on the right. What do you think?
Both quilt tops are pretty; the photo doesn't do the colors justice at all--they are the colors of sunset and just gorgeous. I just think mine, on the right, is more harmonious and balanced.
