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!!"

Sunday, Fathers Day

Belle 3-11
The above photo was taken in March of this year.  It is a quilt I hand pieced and quilted for my granddaughter Belle.  This is proof I have completed at least one quilt, lol!!  No, really I just wanted to show case her baby quilt.

It has been a couple days since I have blog, but last week was pretty much a blurr for me and to be honest I just didn't have it in me to blog.  But I am back and I hopefully stronger and more motivated than last week!!  I did something pretty dumb Friday, when I returned from the store, unloaded my SUV and forgot to close my sun roof!!!! That's right it was opened and it rain, alot!  It rained a little Friday and it rain awhole lot Saturday night.  I looked out the bathroom window this morning and could not believe my eyes.  I ran outside with a towel and started mopping up all the water in the cup holders, and the seats, the dashboard.  I let it dry out for awhile and then I started it up to make sure everything work, and yes it did, even the DVD player in the back seat!  Thank you Lord!  :)

Ok, my quilting, I finished a couple more blocks for my Civil War quilt as you will see below.  I still have to finish my block for "Long Distance Quilting Bee"  I don't want to spoil the surprise so I wont post a picture of it, but I think its pretty cool I am just hoping Kathy likes it. 

This is week #24 Ladies Aid Album and I think it turned out pretty darn  good.  I have a bad habit that when I use red, and white I always want to throw in some blue..........it was hard but I stayed true to my plans and layout and put blinders on!!!

This block is week #6 Richmond, I thought it was pretty dark but members of my group seem to like it so I will leave it just like it is.

Well, I am going to share alittle more about me, I have chickens, New Hampshire Reds, one rooster named Trip and 16 hens, they all look alike so they don't have any names.  I average about a dozen eggs a day.  Chickens are pretty funny birds to watch, trust me on this I have sat and watch them.  One Friday, myself, my husband and my youngest daughter pulled up a cooler of beer (for me and hubby) and sat there for a couple of hours just watching!  I know, I know you all are jealous of my free time. :)

I will end today by sharing another picture of Belle, taken yesterday.
