I can't wait for the long weekend to begin.  We are starting the weekend off by going to the new MN Twins stadium for the first time.  Mike and I are not big baseball fans but we will watch if we are home and they are on tv.  It is all about going to the new outdoor stadium and experiencing the whole American sport plus have a hot dog.  We are also going to take the new light rail train down so we will be able to avoid parking and trying to get out of there at the end of the night.  Saturday morning we are waking up and driving to Council Bluffs.  Mike is doing a Neil Diamond tribute band at a outdoor show at Harrah's casino.  I heard it is going to be a very hot weekend.  I'm ok if it is just hot but in the Midwest we don't just get real hot we get real humid with it.  That I hate.  I am trying to get my brown quilt quilted so I can get the binding on so I have hand sewing to do while sitting around.

I don't know if anyone has ever gotten the bug to do applique but I really have become very interested in it.  I'm not sure why but some of the quilts I have seen are so beautiful.  I think what got me hooked was this:
I found this over at "Don't look now" blog.  

Isn't this just beautiful?  This is why I want to learn to applique.  I going to stop by the library tomorrow and see if I can find some books on different tips.

I hope everyone has a safe holiday weekend.
