A Different Cup of Tea

I guess it's been awhile since I posted anything. We've been having fog for the last two weeks and I think it has invaded my head as well. I did manage to get a quilt done for a customer this week which came out very nicely. The picture doesn't do it justice. It is done in shades of a lovely mint green and lavender with darker greens making the chain look. The back is a pale green. I quilted it using the Baptist Fan pattern from Circle Lord. I need to find some energy so I can get several other quilts done.
I've included a joke my husband sent me. I hope you enjoy it.

Cup of Tea

One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.

I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.
After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.

My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'

My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know...): 'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?'
