Let's see...what have I been up to lately? I have been reading a lot and working on my quilt. I started a quilt right before I became sick. Then I stopped working on it for a while. I have actually been quilting for two days now. It is coming right along. Once I finished the top of the quilt it started to actually look like something, rather than random blocks of material sewn together. I finished the back yesterday and started quilting all of the layers together. It is really a throw (about 4 ft by 4 ft), but it is a nice size...especially for a first time quilting project. The book that I purchased to teach myself how to quilt has 6 lessons in it. I decided to skip the first 5 and get right to the throw (do you really need quilted pot holders?) Actually, after thinking about it, I might use my scraps to make some potholders for my Grandmas.
Gabe and I went to a movie last night. We watched Knocked Up. It was not nearly as funny as I had hoped. At least we both saw the movie for only $8.00 (we had a buy one ticket get one free coupon). I would definitely call it "a renter".
I am currently in the middle of attempting to plan a trip for some of my optometry school friends. We are thinking about meeting in Iowa (it is a relatively central location). If we do make it happen, I am excited about going to the Field of Dreams (the location where the movie was filmed). Hopefully we will be able to play some ball...I pretty much suck, but it would be a lot of fun.
