Starting to look like something

Mark looks sort of scowly and serious in this one, I hadn’t even intended to catch him, he just happened to be walking by.  And he wasn’t really scowly.  He was quite happy in fact, because he’s been waiting for weeks for me to bring quilts down so we could hang them up.

And yes, those are plastic margarita cups on the counter.  Opening day coincides with the town festival, whose theme is Fiesta.  Thus, the cups (with yarn, no margaritas here, sorry.  But the beverage tent will have drinks…)

More window dressing needs to be done, but we did get curtain rods up and stuck these quilts in the window.  I tried to go buy a Pinata that will go in the window on the right.  Unfortunately, the second I stepped inside the party store, the lights went out.  A somewhat terrifying thunderstorm blew through just as we were getting to the store.  I wish the power had stayed on, so we could have waited it out in the store.  As it was, we sat in the truck.  It was pretty impressive, if you like that sort of thing.  The boys were not thrilled.  They hate thunderstorms.

Although, we were treated to an amazing double rainbow afterwards.  The one was really bright and we could see the whole arc.  There was a second fainter one of which only a smaller part was visible.

No pinata, plus, we had just purchased some peg board at Lowe’s, which was sitting in the back of the pickup truck.  We had used some plastic wrap to wrap up as much as we could, but when the wind is blowing the rain sideways, there is no way the truck cover is going to keep the water out.  It didn’t appear that the pegboard got too wet, but we still have to check on it today to see if we are going to have to cut some of it off.

Better get to work.  Have a great Sunday!

p.s. The art quilting class that I’m hosting at MQResource starts tomorrow, there are a few spots left.  I’ve seen Jean’s lessons and the class is going to be great.  All of the info can be found here: Color and Design for Art Quilters.  Registration will stay open until we fill the class or until next Sunday).
