A few random things...

I've wanted to make this 4th of July quilt for a year now and I finally did it! I still have to quilt it and put the binding on, but my goal is to have it finished by July 4th.

I'm a sucker for cute kitchen items, especially from Anthropologie - this is my latest purchase. They came in red, yellow and green and I have a few of each. Here I am standing in NJ with Ellis Island in the background. You can actually take a ferry from NJ to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty--something I didn't know until last week.

Memorial Day

Gotta learn the hard way... don't travel out of New Jersey on a holiday. It took us 7 hours to get to Andy's parents' house in upstate NY - usually it takes a little less than 4. However, being in the country and with family made the trip worth it. We like to escape from city living as much as we can, because it reminds us of how much we like the peace and beauty of the country. Just being able to walk on grass was amazing. Typically in the city, if there's grass, there are dogs, which means, the grass has been fertilized way too much. If the grass doesn't allow dogs, it typically doesn't allow humans either. Hence, the beauty of walking on grass. We helped plant a garden, went to some country food/craft stores, had a bonfire, saw family, and had a great canoe trip. Don't mind my style, I guess I didn't come properly prepared for our outings ... :)
