Foto Finish - Through the Window

This week has certainly sped past.  I'm not quite sure how it got to be Saturday.  Today is the district science fair for the middle  and high school students.  Drama Teen has a project entered and My Guy will be judging today.  I only have to get DT and one of her classmates to the venue and set up.  Judging lasts for about three hours, then the girls will get pizza while the judges finish up the paper work, so rather than sitting around for four hours, I have plans for a quick trip to Tulsa to find border fabrics for the purple and yellow quilt.  This time I'm taking the quilt with me so hopefully what I buy will not end up as just enhancing the stash like the other 4 fabrics I've already purchased. 

Moving on, it's Foto Finish over at Cat Patches today.  The optional theme this week is Through the Window.  I had an image in mind for today, but I couldn't find it.  Thankfully another image in the files fit the bill. 



Over spring break last year, we took a trip to Hot Springs, Arkansas.  The town is well known for it's hot springs and bath houses.  We toured one of the bath houses.  It was pretty amazing, lots of gorgeous stained glass and beautiful tile work.  We toyed with the idea of going to one of the working bath houses and getting a "treatment", but we all decided we'd rather go eat instead, (Boring lot aren't we?)

Well it just about time to wake the girls up and get them moving.  DT's classmate spent the night last night because her mother has another commitment this weekend.  I'm hoping they didn't stay up half the night talking, grumpy girls are just not fun in the morning.  But, I'm going to get to pet fabric later today, so I can survive anything this morning. 

Have a wonderful weekend.

  3. Great selection for this week's theme. You reminded me that I could have chosen a stained glass window piece as well.

  7. I usually forget to take with me whatever I'm wanting to buy fabric to match. Hope you had fun petting the fabric and the girls were not grumpy.

  8. Stained glass is always beautiful. I thought about putting some in here but had to settle for propping an old door on top of my fridge.The colours in your shot are brilliant.

    Hope things go well at the Science Fair. (and that you get to roll around in as much fabric as your heart desires - Good Luck on the hunt for the perfect fabric.
