Ever share a couch with a fat cat?

Ever try and relax
Only to find that a fat cat is crowding your space?
No not Richard
He KNOWS you dont disturb Mama
But this guy
He is so concerned about me but I have almost tripped many times with him underfoot 
He loves his Mama......TOO MUCH lol

I may try some mindless sewing later
We will see how I feel
I made these out of my 2.5 tin

Not 1 inch or microscopic like some
Madwoman on the other side of the park

Just sayin........

Blogging friends are the best

Monday after the drs this was delivered
I had trouble carrying it with my cane and all so asked Jacky to help.
She was VERY willing
Especially when she found out the package was from JulieRose.
JulieRose was smart. This time no fighting as she divied up the contents for

Jacky had a book and a present full of fabric
And Dawnie had a book and a present full of fabric

And a beautiful note.
That Julie has the best penmanship going.
So fancy schmancy makes you feel important and all.
(of course we are important)
Who said that......I heard you.....

See what I mean?
This gal makes everyday a special day

I know. Do you hear the horns and horses hooves as they ride in to proclaim
The package arrival?
Dun dun dun duhhhhhhhh

This HUGE stack of fabrics
Was in my package
I had to put them away as the cat was

Making a mess with them so no other pics were taken
But you will be seeing some of these soon
I guarantee
With this leg my fuse is short....I am hoping I do not have to go into the hospital

Please pray that God heals this thing soon
So i can get back to normal.
There is so much power in prayer
God is good
He works in mysterious ways
Anyway the cat did not make me happy at all messing with my stuff

And a Jan Patek book. Love her.
She has that laid back style.

Thank you so much JulieRose for making my day and I know Jacky was happy.

I tried reaching her by phone but her secretary said she was unavailable
And sewing. LOL

Lillies so fun

Try to ignore my weeds and focus 

Focus on th
e pretty Easter lily
They are all blooming now
The ones on the side garden were out
When Colette was here 

I dont remember the 2 color one but it was stunning

This is the beautiful pink one on the side 
Where my roses died with that horrible snow
Dont dare move these as look at all those buds
Looks like Mom will be saying Hi
Very soon......she passed on July 30 and i think she lets me know that she knows i am sad on that day......
Love my outside flowers. .......
Weeds and all

Crazy round here

This is a spider bite on the back of my leg behind my knee
Yeah just for fun
I was a little bored so wanted more excitement in my life lol
My poor brother has shingles
In his eye and mouth. Yeah that's a ton of fun too.
We are a mess. This leg bothers me as it is where you bend the leg. Ugh....

To take my mind off things i sewed a little
Some 2.5 patches
Some in color groups

Some not
No specific plan at the moment
Just happy sewing

And my tin looks fuller
How does this happen???

Words you dont want to hear

Why am I showing you a pic of my bed?
Well, the other day
I called home from work as I always do
Letting the hubs know I was on my way home
And was there anything we needed
 such as a stop at the pharmacy to get scrips or grocery store to get milk.
My answer was "No honey but I Want to show you what I bought for the bedroom. You know how I broke the lamp? Well I got replacements and real cheap....."

Ughhh.  Since when do I let HIM
Decorate ? YEAH the man who thinks 70s shag rugs and avocado green and brown plaid are cool......
That was the longest drive home Eva!

You see, even when he makes the bed
He puts the bedspread Upside down
Drives me crazy
Um those are FLOWERS and the stems
Are at the bottom, flowers on Top
Ugh. I suppose I should be happy he makes the bed after he rolls out right?

But look! I worried for nothing.......
He did a good job!
and got two cute lamps.

I guess I will keep him.......

Good job Rich!

Friday the 13th and other superstitions

Today is Friday the 13th
Supposedly an unlucky day
And poor black cats get a bad rap too
If they cross your path

Good thing this guy has a very white face
He needs all the help he can get
To avoid a bad reputation

Do you throw salt over your shoulder?
Avoid walking under ladders?
Keep umbrellas in hall unopened?
What superstitions do you know about?

You would never know it
Looking at it LOL

Just call me bag lady

Here is bag number 3
I have had the piecing done for a
While now 
Just needed to find lining and put it together.......


This one came out great too
Will have to get a finished pic 
This was while in process

And this clean up day
A while ago yielded this

So black sheep  has 
But not full yet  hee hee

Not sure if these will be used for groceries
If they will become gift sets with matching
Zip bags etc

Or if I will use them as reunion prizes
Time will tell 

Look what caught my eye driving into the yard after work
My Easter pretty
So many blooms
I think i counted ten flowers and buds
Made my day......

In the meantime........
What are you making????

Guess who staged this

If you guessed me you were wrong 
Jacky no blog
I asked what she was sewing and she said
See that chair? So cute and small 

And she made this to go on her wall
So cool......

And this one is a cute lap quilt
She wants a border on it
Love the colors

So back to these 
The blocks in the back are 
made with 
1.5 squares

Let me repeat that.....
The blocks in the back are made with 1.5 squares
See those two in the middle ?
Yeah I know .......she is a showoff lol

See her finger? I know which finger that was Jacky! 
Pointing to a 1.5 inch square
In front of the pieced blocks
So cute.......but oh so small......
This is probably NOT  going to be one I copy

You this squirrel

We were so happy to have the opportunity to meet Colette
and to go shopping for our basket.
Jacky and I like ANY excuse to go shopping...….lol

Remember our last fabric shopping trip?
Fun fun.....
Glad you came our way Colette
Even the Dunks approved and he doesnt go to many people let alone let them pet him.

He was looking for you after you left.
