Hot and crazy here


Colette this was the sunflower pattern
I was telling you about.
Fun and cheerful



See this fabric?
My friend Jacky (no blog)
Sent me an "oh. Oh.Dawn Dawn Dawn
Message Fri while I was at work.I read it while having my lunch and thought oh no what is wrong.....well
WHILE I WAS AT WORK......
SHE Went shopping and got this cute flannel for fifty cents a yard.
YEP I SAID FIFTY CENTS A YARD!
She is gonna make pj bottoms for the grands for Christmas and get plain tees and put a cupcake on them to match
How flippin cute is that?
SURE, scare your friend to death but glad you are alright lol


Then she says stop by on your way home so I did
And this is what she showed me.so cute
She had gotten a dino hat for a birthday boy
And wanted a matching tee
So we went shopping and I found her a bandana in green that matched perfectly 
And then bombarded her email with dino pics and she chose one and made an iron on
Then her granddaughter said Nana we need to fix the feet and added the lines and toenails. Enlarge it and check it out.
Soooooo. Cute
She us bringing it to the campsite today and will give it to the birthday boy.
Isnt it great to be able to sew????

In other news...........
It is getting hot as blazes here this week
At work we may have to add ice to the concrete mix.......yeah I KNOW!
And
I think that when I wad cowtipping
With Jacky and Colette I pulled something in my back
Go me
It feels like a disc bulge causing a pinched nerve
I have been trying to stretch it out
I had similar about 6 yrs ago and they sent me to physical therapy and it worked.
Just what I need right?
If only the therapist was a cute hunk 
And not a girl right? 
So no more cow tipping for me LOL
not sure if even carrying my porky Dunkin
Could have caused it
I kid you not....he is BIGGER THAN BOBBIN
and she is a dog ! 
Ask Colette.......she will tell ya.

So will be slow going round here
Just may have to work in spurts
On this project

What!
Oh deer.........
No wrestling the deer........not yet



a few years ago


this was from a few years ago.
when we first got the house in 2013
I LOVE this haircut
BUT since I have let it go gray my hairdresser doesn't cut it like this
anymore. grrrrrrrrr...…..

I don't really want to be fussing with color again..….I know it makes me look younger but hate the hassle of it
all not to mention the chemicals...…...ugh

whats a gal to do?????  I need a good haircut
the last time she cut nothing off and it is long and shaggy
I look like a sheepdog with hair in my eyes ha ha



this used to be a wash and go kinda do...…...my kind
I was a hairdresser in my younger days and had to primp all the time.
not now...…..those days are over
I am what I am...…..
double chins and all

Thursday thoughts


these stars were so much fun when I made the baby quilt
I really need to pull some scraps and make some more
for a bigger project


and Fall will be upon us soon.
ugh...…..


this guy is hiding somewhere too
and I found more red brick type fabric for it
I am liking it too




and ever since we made these for Colette I have wanted to do 
more of them
you never know when you need a heart...…..or heart quilt
for someone

''
this is my scrappy star that is also at a standstill
 I have WAY too many starts...….


and this one Jacky and I need to finish up and border and quilt
this was  a friendly challenge between us to use up
strips and make a quilt
mine is a small lap
and just needs the borders for flimsy stage
why do we abandon these and start new? ugh



and this book on my shelf needs more use
love some of the blocks inside
maybe I should pick one block a week and a color family
and do one a week for a sampler type quilt
that would be 52 blocks so depending on size would determine
project
see/???? there I go again...…...grrrrr



I did love this one...…..they had made a ton of these for the CA wildfires a while back
and I was amazed at the different ways to set this into quilts
sooooooooooooo

fun

and scrappy
and easy

what are YOU working on...……..

I think I need to pick one of the projects I have going and get it done!

Challenge quilt


Ta da........my challenge quilt top
Dont mind my limited space design floor
I do live in a mobile so not big and open

I just need to find my pieces for the 
Bottom row 
I have a funny feeling the missing pieces
Have an attachment to Dunkin
Just sayin.....



But this was a fun way to use
Up fabrics like this
The roller coaster fabric as Lisa calls it 
Yep gone............
If there is any left it will be tiny pieces for 
My granny project



This one I liked but I literally never
Buy pink so now it too has a home


My quilt inspectors were quick to 
Get to work......


Hmmm lets lift up this 
edge and check that seam
Yes i know the edges need to be trimmed 
Mr inspector 


And the other inspector
Was just as impressed at how quickly this quilt was 
made
I kinda wished now i had made it
Bigger.it looks great in my bedroom with the gray walls
What have you sewn lately? 
I wanna see
Thanks ladies for playing along with me
Even though the pattern i chose had a few issues it still turned out great

See you our next adventure........
Thinking of slabbing again
With a twist.....
Always fun sewing with friends isnt it?

Quilt friends are the best


Remember I won on Barbara's blog on the star blog hop?
Well........it arrived....
I am a lucky girl
Fat qtrs and pieces and 5 inch squares
A glove and even some trim



See how adorable?

Dunkin was jealous



He kept circling the pile as I tried to take pics


There  you can see all the goodies 


Fun fun


A card and glove too


Dunkin loved the trim until I told him pink was for girls


And got mad at me
Lol


So I teased him 


Look at that cute face


Again wanting to know why it wasnt for him


Here all stacked to see how much is there 


I guess he is not talking to me
Hee hee
Ok Dunks . I will make you something nice
Thanks Babs! 
YOU MADE MY DAY

Quilting friends are the best
