I figured a new month meant I better swap out the quilt I had hanging on my living room wall. Myths of Avalon had been up since the first of January. Even though this wall doesn't get direct sunlight, I plan to change quilts every couple of months. I would go with a new quilt every month, but I just don't like climbing that ladder.
So I looked over my available quilts and decided on this poor quilt that rarely sees the light of day. It's too small for a bed and too big to hang over the red couch, I think I may have hung it over the bannister once, but it usually just hangs in a closet.
I think the prints are good for this time of year, they add some color to the room but don't shout spring, the colors kind of whisper spring, which matches the March weather we usually see in Illinois.
At first I thought it may be too big for the wall space that I have, but since it's not an overly busy quilt, I think it looks fine up there. I don't think I could go with a quilt that's any bigger, that's for sure.
If you would like more information about this quilt, this is Lifetime Quilt #16.
First, I'm happy to report I only lost 2 "jewels" from my shoes during the race! Most everyone was dressed up for the race, plenty of tiaras and tutus, but I didn't notice any other bedazzled shoes! When we picked up our racing bibs, my daughter and I actually squealed like 6 year old girls when we saw our names, "Princes Thelma" and "Princess Ashley"!
Disney sure knows how to pamper their princess runners,
here we are, being greeted by our footmen before we pick up our race packets.
Several folks asked for me to post a picture of me running with my shoes and tiara, so here you go! I was smiling because I think I had less than a mile to go at this point! (Princess runners don't sweat, they sparkle!!)
13,091 ladies finished the race, the fastest runner ran 13.1 miles in 82 minutes, I was a little slower, I was 5,295 runners behind the winner. Think you're too old to participate, the oldest finisher was 82!
Here we are, in front of Cinderella's Castle, proudly wearing our finishers medal. Ashley and I ran the entire race together and crossed the finish line at the same time.
It was a wonderful weekend, the weather could not have been any better.
For some reason, crossing the finish line with my daughter, was a very emotional moment. I was just so thankful to be healthy enough to finish the race, to share the experience with my daughter, and so relieved that my training paid off. I cried like a baby when I received my medal.
I'm still behind on my email after being out of town, if you're waiting for a response from me, I hope to get caught up this weekend!
