A Friday Mish-Mash

Happy Friday to you all. Thought I might start off with some food on this gorgeous Friday morning here in Southern California. I made Paella last night for dinner and it was so good.

Paella - after

Paella - before

I also completed Block Five of the Designer Mystery BOM for 2010.

Here are the rest:

Can you tell that I have not squared any of these up yet?  LOL - I just noticed all of the strings hanging off the edges!
One last bit of fabric goodness; my Sunkissed fabric order for the Blockapalloza came yesterday.  My boys thought I was nuts when I tried to show it off to them.  I know YOU will like it.
My favorites - I just love the circles
Sunkissed - for the Blockapalozza
Fun day ahead for me; my best girlfriends are taking me to lunch to help me celebrate my b-day.  I turned 42 a couple of days ago and actually had a wonderful day. The family and I went to have Indian Food for dinner at a restaurant in the Little India section of Artesia, CA and inside the restaurant there were (I swear!) three sari quilts hanging on the walls!  Boy did I wish I had a camera so I could show you all.  They were gorgeous.  Someday when I am shopping there for spices, I will have to pop in a sari shop to check out the sari fabrics.

Oh one more thing:  The gal who is quilting my That Girl Quilt called me last night and told me that I did a great job on the top! That was a thrill to hear from someone who not only quilts her own work but does others for a living.  Brought a big smile to my face.  :) 

Hope you all have a great Friday.

Indian Food

I was very lucky in my younger years to take a trip to India. What I came away with from that trip was a incessant craving for Indian Food and a huge appreciation for the culture and traditions of the Indian people. So, how cool is it that I live about 15 minutes away from Little India in Artesia, CA? My Indian spices/supplies have been getting low so I took a trip to Little India on Pioneer Avenue yesterday and bought a bag full of goodies that I cannot wait to use. Have to wait until the weekend though as Chicken Picatta was requested for tonight's dinner and tomorrow I have the night off as I'm going out with the girls! More on great Indian Food later. Ciao!
