Today was my day of "dreaming" since I had to have my colonoscopy. I was up at 2 am with drinking the rest of the liquid and then drinking water. I got up again at 4:30 am and drank more water, as well as making myself comfortable on the "pot."
We arrived at my appointment about 15 mins early, to find out I wouldn't get in for 30 more mins. Which actually turned out to be an hour. Not my favorite idea of waiting, since I tend to think of all kinds of things that go wrong. I ...

It's probably a time for an update on what seems to have become my never ending Let's Book It Challenge project.
If you've been following my blog you know that I'm determined to reduce my stash this year, and the first stash-buster is a purple project. Starting out with 4.5" purple squares I made modified snowball blocks by stitching 1.5" ivory squares onto three of the corners and pressing them back.
I thought I had cut enough to make 120 squares for a total of 30 blocks, but I ended up with extra. That happens to me quite often. Either I don't know how to make hash marks while I'm cutting, or it's "the ... read more

If it happens you need patience and it took 48 hours and finally it dried up but my keys were damage.
When the keys are damage you can use your passwords.
Well I have a new mac air and I love it but it is expensive but I am so happy.

This is how I use to document the quilts that I had made. Sad but true. I came across these two worn spiral pages that I have saved for over 20 years.
I may have pictures of some of these quilts somewhere in a shoe box in the attic but reading this list has brought back so many wonderful memories.
Many of the quilts were gifts that I have made over the years. A few were made as special orders. This also makes me think of a wonderful family that I grew up with. The mother was one of my ... read more
The parrot block is complete for Amy Bradley's Pirate Bom that we are hosting at Kindred Spirits Quilt Co.It’s a delightful quilt that is available in either a little boy or girl version. I've opted for the boy version as I have grandsons and I’m sure one of them will be the lucky recipient eventually.
The details in the pattern are wonderful and quite comical. I’ve had such fun completing them. Quite a few more to go, but I’m keeping on track.

So, I wasn’t quite sure what to do for this quilt. I had wanted to do something with Jelly rolls for a while and figured I would cut my own and see what I can do. This design popped into my head around 4:30am and I just ran with it! I’m going to use some kind of sashing, but not sure on the color yet. What does everyone think?

I have finished basting this quilt for a sweet baby boy who was born today! I should have had it finished long ago, but his granny and I decided to wait until he made his appearance.
You know, for the label….to make sure his parents didn’t change his name on the sly.
So tomorrow I will finish it up and hopefully send it to him by Saturday!
Have a good Friday, friends!
I found the time to go through my Blogroll and tutorial page and updated it, there are more active site than I thought there would be
Spent quite a few hours of ‘play’ time perfecting this one until I was happy with the design. Sometimes designing can be very frustrating but it’s always fun!
When I look at my last 5 designs there have been 5 different border treatments to frame the designs. I’m pleased with that!

The two flocks of partridges were in the yard this morning - lots of squawking and running around by some, others were happy to just watch.
Later the large flock were peacefully eating (you can tell that it is cold because they are so round with their feathers puffed out).
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!♥ read more
