What's Up Wednesday

Blogging has been neglected as I was preparing for, and then recovering from, hosting two back to back parties.  Squeezed in there somehow was also a guild meeting, football game and stomach flu.

Throwing a surprise party a month AFTER the big day goes a long way in keeping the surprise party a SURPRISE!

Paella...not made by me.  However, I have been known to make a pretty decent paella a smaller pan.

Since my husband didn't know about the surprise party, I couldn't explain why having his office over to dinner the next night would be stressful for me.  I didn't have to cook, so what was the big deal, right?  Uh, well, I DID have to get my house in "show" condition which meant taking valuable time away from more important activities - like quilting!

STILL working on this quilt.  I'm almost done though, and now that the parties are over and (knock  on wood) the stomach flu has left my house, I should manage to finish this....soon ;-)

I did manage to finish the sample BOMs for to post instructions on the guild's blog....

So...what are you up to today?
Have an amazing day!


  1. You have been busy! Now I want paella.

  2. I am so glad you survived the weekend and that both parties were a success!! I don't know how you do it!!!!!

  3. Sorry to hear you've been under the weather and glad you're all on the mend! What a cool way to surprise your hubby! Mine hates surprise, I try to accomodate him and not have them. lol Thanks for the peek at the quilt while you're quilting it!
