Plato's Diner is located near the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland; they serve American and Greek food, but we only wanted pancakes and french toast!
Sometimes when you ask for sugar free syrup you'll get the high-carb stuff anyway, so I came prepared...
BUT, they had Smucker's, which tastes a lot better!
Charlene eats there a lot; her favorite waitress paused to smile at the camera ... nice lady!
We didn't hang out all day for fun and games though; I did manage to get some quilty work done - I finished the Stars and Stripes quilt top, yaaaay!
I also threw together a back, nothing special about it. I'm not going to add borders, so this quilt finished at approximately 72 x 81, a pretty decent bed sized quilt. All I need to do now is take it to the long armer and make the binding, unless I add it to the group of finished tops I already have. As I'm looking at the picture, I'm seeing secondary light and dark stripes that weren't obvious when I looked at the real thing - very interesting!
My next project *should* be to resurrect the Mai Tais in Paradise quilt I started on Bonnie Hunter's quilter's cruise in November 2011 - it's a beautiful pattern and I don't want to let it languish too long. I'll probably need to cut more strips though; I've been "borrowing" from that bag for other projects. Looks like I've got my work cut out for me!
Sew forth and sew on...
