Happiness is….

Breakfast on the balcony overlooking the park

New music from John Mayer from iTunes

Living in Minneapolis with a great view from all my windows

A walk in the park with Chesty

A beautiful fountain in the park

Getting an email from Keith saying he’s getting on the plane and heading home after being gone 3 days

Having the luxury of sewing all day- any day – because I don’t have to work

Dancing around my sewing room with no one but Chesty watching

Finishing the blocks for another HeartStrings quilt

A glass of wine on the balcony overlooking the park before dinner

Sometimes I forget how wonderful my life is…..I hope your day was just as great!

    Ahh yes, I well relate to that one. 🙂 And while we’re on that subject, my husband is also very happy to be off for the summer too. 🙂

    The coolest part is that you appreciate it…

    Oh, such bliss. Love the new/old quilt top. It’s lovely!

    You know, that view from the balcony overlooking the park is almost identical to one I had at the Intercontinental Hotel in The Plaza district in Kansas City. I had to do a double-take.

    Your Amish Stripes quilt is coming along great. Thanks for sharing your progress.
