Jon treated me to 6 roses for our six month anniversary last week. It's funny that now that we're married, he buys me flowers and then hands me the credit card receipt to record his purchase - just not the same as when we were single. But the flowers were a great surprise anyways. We celebrated by going to IKEA to buy recycling bins and then going to our favorite restaurant for sushi and udon noodles.
I can already see that remembering our wedding anniversary is going to be a tough one for us...is it the 17th, the 18th or the 19th? We both have to stop and think really hard to remember the right day. Last week September 17th was the one year anniversary of our engagement. September 18th was our 6 month wedding anniversary. And September 19th was our three dating anniversary (does that make sense?)

Well, it seems that I have abandoned blogging (and guitar) to take up my new hobby - quilting. I finished this quilt last week. It's a tiny one (40"x60") made from Denyse Schmidt's Flea Market Fancy fabric line. It loosely resembles the "Day at the Beach" quilt in her new book. I just used different fabric and spiced it up with some aqua ric rac. My favorite part of it is the fabric on the back!
Shinji was not a very good model for me. First he wrinkled it by sleeping on it too much and then he wouldn't sit still or look at the camera while I was taking his picture (and I was just beginning to think that he liked me!)
