Earth Hour!

This evening we will celebrate Earth Hour. We will turn our lights off between the hour of 8:30pm and 9:30pm. I know this won't help much with the problem of climate change, but it just might help us all understand that we have to make changes if we want to leave this world fit to live in for our grandchildren.
I have been working on the 'Bear' quilt. The top is now done and I have to find something for the backing. I hope there is something in my stash. I really don't want to have to buy any more fabric. Show you more when I have it sandwiched and quilted.

I started working on the charity quilt for Quilts from the Heart. (Our Guild's initiative) They gave me a kit, but there was not enough fabric in it to finish the top. So I bought a couple of 1.25metres of fabric to sort of match. I am just doing 4in. squares. Hope to have it done by tonight - at least the top anyway.

We are going out for dinner this evening - early so as not to conflict with Earth Hour. My birthday is tomorrow, hence the dinner. The tulips at the top of this post were a present from my husband. Yellow tulips are my favourite!

Happy Birthday Hetty, have a wonderful day. Love the yellow tulps. Earth hour sounds like a wonderful thing. Imagine if we all did it once a week!!

Happy pre-Birthday! I'll have a slice on you! (My husband talked me into going out for pizza tonight.)

Happy Birthday!!! Hope you enjoyed your dinner!!

Happy Birthday....and, Kaye is right...it would be great if we all had an "earth hour" once a week. Our electric company has a "beat the peek" time on a regular basis where they ask people to turn most things off for those few hours. So I guess every little bit helps.
