Happy Friday


Ho hum! Friday is finally here! Weekend plans include getting stuff done around the house, resting, making a pot of soup with Great Northern Beans and being with friends, family and my Dog.

Friends are important, you know?

Whatever you are up to this weekend, I hope its a good one for you.

Inspiration and Synesthesia

Greetings all!

Last evening I had the pleasure of attending a Sharon Schamber lecture at the guild meeting.

WOW! Totally WOW! She shared so many beautiful quilts and pieces of her work with us. She is a very talented quilter and a very interesting person. She has synesthesia which I find most fascinating. She was spot on with her interpretation of many in attendance.

One day I'd like to attend one of her classes. Meantime, I'll keep on doing what I do which is no way near the talent she shared with us. Check out her website and see for yourself!

Uh Oh No Power

Oh dopey me! I left my laptop computer power cord at work! So, I've only got a few hours of use for the laptop before Monday.

Just as well because I'm sewing all weekend!

It's Friday and Love Your Pet Day!

Greetings everyone and HAPPY FRIDAY!

It is Love Your Pet Day and I've got to tell you (if you didn't already know) that I love my Golden Retriever, Sadie, more than anything in the world.

Here is a picture of her that I captioned "Flying Sadie".

She's my girl!

Give your pet a little extra love today, ok?

Oh Deer, Oh Dear!

Greetings everyone! This morning on the way to work I saw five white tail deer grazing near the roadway. They seem so tame. I stopped and rolled down the window to "chat" with them and they didn't run away. I haven't seen very many around here lately which is odd because I used to see them just about every day. It was a delight to see them again.

Received the second step for the Quilt Along yesterday. Oh Dear! So many half square triangles! I'm going to try something different and use a grid sheet. I found them at here. I also have Thangles to use. I've used Thangles before but will use them again to see which method I prefer of these two.

I did get another step of Bonnie Hunter's "Old Tobacco Road" mystery quilt completed weekend before last. As you can see, the next step is to square it up and add the borders.

Oh Dear...too many projects!

Anxiously Awaiting

Happy Hump Day everyone! Today they are talking of snow/rain mix changing to all rain later as the temperature rises. Oh how I wish it were all snow!

Today I am anxiously awaiting Part Two of the Quilt Along series. My fabric is washed and I'm ready to get started.

So silly of me to get involved in this Quilt Along beings that I've got at least a half dozen or more quilt projects going on at the same time. But I couldn't resist!

As if I've nothing else to do...I sit here anxiously awaiting!
