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!!"

Oh my God........game 6, between the beer and Xanax, I have no finger nails!  No only kidding, did drink a beer or 2, the game was AWESOME!
Game 7 here we come......watch out Rangers!  So with that said.....beer iced.....check, hot dogs for dinner......check and at 6:30 the comfy pj's on, TV set at channel 2 and DON'T CALL, OR TEXT.........I am busy!!!!!
Yesterday I worked in the sewing room for the first time in 3 weeks and boy did it feel good.  Got my November block done for Long Distance Quilting Bee for Evelyn, yes I know its not even November.  I made a promise to myself that I would not fall behind again!
I personally love this......I sure hope Evelyn does!

Since the following blocks are for me, made from instruction provided on BOM I got a late start, and I am following an idea from another member, I am making 2 blocks of each.  I think, haven't quite decided yet but I am leaning towards "quilt as you go".

I really love these prints, it looks a little busy but since it for my quilt I like it!  If I quilt as I go, I am going to use a different backing for each block, no two alike.  I will also hand quilt with different color threads to give each block its own personality.

Ok, with that said......................
GO CARDS!!!!!!


  1. So glad that you are back it. I know how happy it makes you. BIRDS!!

  2. Ok I was thinking about trying the quilt as you go... I am a NEW quilter! Do you put something in the sashing strips that go in between?? I have not been able to figure this part out and was thinking about trying it!

  3. I have you listed as a No reply comment on my blog...Quilt Monster in my Closet, but I too am a St Louis Cards fan...much to my husbands Dislike.. hehehe. So I thought I would make sure you recieved my comment from my blog..about Southwest Inspiration. :)
