A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

What a treat it was yesterday to see this rainbow appear just after a sun shower,  and for once, I had my camera handy.

I went to my quilt guild’s annual banquet, and it turned out to be a lucky night for me.  I won a door prize of this Moda honeybun called “Spring Fever”.

I also got to take home the centerpiece at the table, which was a bouquet of fresh greens and flowers.

Everyone at the banquet got this cute lapel pin:

        The food was served family style, and everyone agreed that the first course of chicken soup was really delicious.   We joked about wanting to take home the leftovers.  Then, one of the ladies at our table actually went out to her car and came back with an empty tupperware container and poured the rest of the soup into it to take home.  Needless to say, she was the object of many good natured jokes for the rest of the night.   But, I bet she was smiling today when she sat down to a meal with her delicious soup.
