More Quilting and We went Out to Have a Sandwich

 Riverton, Utah       High 91 Low 60

We both have been staying busy. Cindy has what she calls "her daily deep cleaning".  I have tried to stay busy quilting. About once a week I go to the grocery store and use their pick-up service. 

This evening we decided to go to one of our favorite restaurants, a place called The Philadelphian. They have a Philly sandwich way better than any we found in Philadelphia. We used a 2 for 1 coupon and got 2, 8 inch sandwiches and a large order of home style fries. The sandwiches give us 2 meals. Half a sandwich and the fries is way more than we need to eat, but are they delicious.

This place has dine in, but is now take out only because of the virus. I guess that seems to be the new normal. We found some shade and ate in the car.

Some of the quilts I have finished are a motor cycle quilt that will be a Christmas present and Another quilt which we helped our Canadian neighbor in Yuma finish. I think it turned out very nice but we are not sure they are going to be able to make it to Yuma this winter so when she can get it is unknown.

Me setting up the computer to do the quilting.

We made one using the same panel but ours is a throw, while this one is for a queen size bed.

This is the motorcycle quilt. The center part is poofed up rather than just flat.


While we were cleaning our storage room, we found some cabinet doors with stained glass inserts which we decided would make a good decoration for our sun room. I need to find someone to make some kind of hooks so we can hang them in front of our windows. We both like stained glass and feel they will be a good addition. They originally we hanging in my old house that got torn down and we saved them from at least 15 years ago.

There are 6 of them.

Thanks for visiting.


  1. Oh my gosh! That quilt is fabulous beyond words. The quilting you do is amazing. One of these days when I get rich, I'm going to get a long arm with the computer!!
    Hey .. didn't you take me there for a sandwich? It was the BEST! You two are WAY too busy ... you make me feel like a slacker that I sit on the couch! Hahaha Nice windows ... those will be beautiful in the sun room.

    1. Yes it's the same place. It's one of our favorites. Too bad we had to eat in the car instead of at one of their tables.

  2. Beautiful Quilts. If your neighbour is desperate for the for the quilt it could be mailed.
    Nice to get out for dinner after being locked away for so long.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
