What do you do when you want to post to your blog but almost everything you are doing is a secret?

Well, I guess this is what you do. Last weekend DH was in a community theater play, “Lying in State.” It is a political farce and he played an inept governor. Here he is in his makeup, no really, this is a wig and makeup:

Now, wouldn’t you be proud to show him off?

Here he is with one of his co-stars:

Anyway, just to show you that he really doesn’t look that bad, I took his picture at one of his favorite places to eat, Taco Bell.

While he was playing with his friends I did get the final borders on All That Jazz.

I mitered the corners but haven’t cut the excess off yet.

I also worked on a challenge quilt for guild and started quilting a gift quilt. I had to stop the quilting because I decided to order Kimmy Brunner’s melon templates to do the continuous curves: lots of continuous curves. The little curves I did on Spring Garden don’t show up too much but these will be bigger and need to be “more correct.”

My personal challenge came this week when Sandi decided that her BOM block for May would be a grandmother’s flower garden. I did one for Spring Garden in 2005 and swore I would never do one again: I, and my arthritis, don’t like hand work. Now I have to decide if I am going to be true to the BOM or true to myself.

Now I am, again, off to the studio. I just need to find something to work on that I can show…….
