A Beautiful Day!

It's a beautiful day!

The sun is shining.

The trees are showing off their glorious green canopy on my street.

The flowers were standing at attention, saluting the sun this morning.

And yesterday after work, I spent a little time finishing the binding on a table runner to match my Spring Spell quilt. I made it, completely out of leftovers, in the free moments I could snatch here and there throughout the week. I popped it in the washer late last night and ~ voila! ~ it was ready to go on the coffee table in the living room this morning. I it!

I also finally put together the terrarium I was planning and added Marné's little mushrooms (from the giveaway I won a while back). Aren't they adorable?
Last night Mr. P and I went to the horse races with some folks from his workplace. It was fun. The best part was that, even though we are not big betters, we won enough to pay for our evening out!
How is your weekend looking?

Love your table runner and the terrarium with the mushrooms looks cute on it. I'm glad you are having some nice weather, too. Enjoy your weekend!

What a happy post! Glad to see spring is sticking around in your neck of the woods. It's gotta be the quilt. I love the table runner and want one for my table :-) Congrats on your winnings at the races.
