words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

I have a very, very busy weekend!  My grandson Bryce, seen here feeding the chickens stale bread spent the whole weekend with myself and PawPaw.  This time he decided he was going to sleep with us!  Oh boy, can you picture this......PawPaw, Daisy (110# yellow lab), Porkchop (what we call Bryce) and me in a king size bed!  Yeah, doesn't work as well as you would think!  Porkchop weighs maybe 40 pounds and I think he took up the most room.  God love him, he is such a sweetie!

Daisy is laying down and Duke her brother

Duke and Daisy are brother and sister, they will be 2 on the 29th of this month.  I love just like they where my kids, but I guess we all love our pets like that.  And they listen about as well as my kids did too!

Friday, I spent 6 hours in my sewing room, no not cleaning it, making 6 more outfits for the dolls.  My daughter Shayne said she would start picking up the piles of fabric and put them on the shelf if I made her and her neighbors two girls an outfit.......so my middle daughter Sami and my granddaughter Belle got theirs too.  Now I have to finish, Angie (daughter in law) Hailey (granddaughter) and my youngest Madi and I will be finished with summer outfits! 

This is Izzy and Shaynes doll Vayda........I guess the next set of outfits with be for Halloween.  Yes I must get started, well, soon.

I received the fabric for Orange You Glad Bee and the colors are so yummy!  I will post pictures of the block when it is complete and get it in the mail to Staci.  I am spreading my wings a little on the one.  I am a pretty traditional block and colors kinda quilter and Staci has requested a Mosaic block.  Look very challening but I am excited to try.  I will let you all know how it goes!  Looks easy, but you know what they say about that........

Nice, bright and pretty, don't you think.  This is going to be one cheery quilt.  Good choice Staci!

I am going leave you today with a picture of some wild daisy from my yard, enjoy!

Until time........


  1. We are never too old to play with dolls, somehow I think that when we get older, we go back to doing some of the things we did when we were little ones. I still love my dolls, and my grand-daughter thinks it is neat that her Gramma still plays with dolls. Enjoy!

  2. I love the pic of your chiwawas.
