May Schnibble
Here's my May Schnibble flimsy X-Rated from Schnibbles Times Two by Miss Rosie's Quilt Co. Tune in tomorrow June 1 on Sherri's blog and Sinta's blog for the Schnibbles parade. We got to pick the Schnibble we wanted to make so the parade will have a great variety!
I've been making great progress with my de-stashing and de-cluttering of my sewing room! WooHoo!!! In fact, I've been spending most of the day organizing the "Keep Pile". There are two boxes full of stuffus I plan to donate and my kitchen table is covered with goodies and treasures I hope to sell.

I hope you'll pop in tomorrow to do a little shopping.

I hope you're having a fabulous Memorial Day if you're in the U.S. and if you're elsewhere I hope you've had a great Monday!

I appreciate your visit - come again soon!

(my made up word - LOL)

The "BIG SORT" continues and I believe it will continue for quite awhile!

There are cupboards, drawers, baskets, bins, boxes, etc full of STUFFUS. It's a bit overwhelming but rather than let it get the best of me I've laughed at myself. Seriously, why did I buy much of this STUFFUS and why do I continue to hold on to it?

I'm actually quite proud of myself because I've already emptied most of the overhead cupboards and 9 drawers. Whew! I'm working in the walk in closet today - this is a daunting task! (6 of the 9 drawers in the closet are totally empty - WOOHOO)

A very good friend has given me some sage advice about doing the BIG SORT. One bit of advice is to use a large space to move stuff into - so here's my kitchen table - not showing you the rest of the kitchen (the island, the counters, the stove top) Yes, the stove top - LOL!!!!

Besides asking myself why I purchased this stuffus and why I continue to hold on to it I've also been asking myself why I continue to sew/quilt. I mean seriously this is absolutely ridiculous!!!!

I can't seem to answer those questions - can you?

Stay tuned for more "BIG SORT STUFFUS" updates throughout the week end! :-)

Thanks for popping in to visit!

Thank you!

Thank you so much for making my "De-Stashing Sale" a huge success. I'm working on de-cluttering my sewing room - it's gotten overwhelming and quite frankly ICKY!

The STUFFUS must either be sold or given away - it's just got to go! :-)

I'll have more STASH for sale on Tuesday, June 1 in "De-Stashing Part Deux". I hope to see you then; until then if you need me I'll be in my sewing room knee deep in clutter. Ugh!

Have a wonderful Memorial Day week end - relax and enjoy but remember those who served our country.

I appreciate your visit - come again soon! See you Tuesday, June 1.

Miss Rosie Cover Girls
A couple of months ago Carrie of Miss Rosie's Quilt Co fame contacted Carol (aka Brown Quilt 4 Me) and I to ask if we'd be interested in making two versions of one quilt pattern. Yes, yes and yes! ;-)

I used a fat quarter bundle of Garden Flowers by Blackbird Designs for Moda and Carol used Simple Abundance Honey Buns by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.

Carol has been referring to us as Miss Rosie Cover Girls - LOL - thank goodness we were not required to wear bikinis. LOL (be afraid, be very afraid)

Here's a picture of my version and Carol will post hers on her blog soon. (she's visiting her cute grand children for a few days)

I love this quilt - it has a very vintage feel; like something found in an attic trunk. Huge sigh!!
Carrie, thank you so much for inviting me to do another quilt for you and it's fun to be a Miss Rosie Cover Girl with my good friend, Carol. :-)

I appreciate your visit - please stop again soon.

Springing Into Summer
in the Desert

This beautiful flower is one of numerous blooms on the cactus next door! We're looking forward to more blooms - it's loaded with buds! They can be enjoyed late at night or early morning because as the sun rises they close up.

I wish I had lots of quilting and stitching to share but alas it's been a very lazy week. Sigh!

On a super happy note - there's a new Little Blue in the house - woohoo! My sweet hubby went out last Monday to 'run an errand' and came home with a new friend for me. It's no wonder I LOVE that man - he does spoil me (rotten). teehee!

edit - Little Blue II is a replacement for my Little Blue netbook computer that simply bit the dust last Sunday morning.

I'll be back soon with quilting and stitching to share!

I appreciate your visit - come again soon!

Week end in Review!

Friday brought some wonderful surprises! :-)

For Mother's Day flowers from my daughter, Kris and a Sony Reader from sweet hubby, Ron. Woohoo!!!

Saturday I finished the Big Schnibble X-Rated flimsy. The scrappy piano key border makes the quilt top pop and sing (don't you think?).
Sunday - Time with sweet Little Blue - my Netbook. I was sitting on the couch with my cup of coffee flavored with Vanilla Caramel creamer - YUM - going through all the blogs on my blog roll leaving Happy Mother's Day messages. And, then it happened - Little Blue died :-( OH NO!!!!!! My hubby tried to revive Little Blue but sadly it was gone to Netbook Heaven.

Then hubby tried to get me set up with his HUGE lap top (I was really missing Little Blue) but things were not right - I kept losing my internet connection. Maybe it was a sign that I spend way too much time on the computer. No, that can't be it! LOL

I hope you'll accept my apology if I didn't get by your blog to wish you a Happy Mother's Day - you were in my thoughts!

On a happier note - I wasn't able to sit on the couch with Little Blue or the BIG Lap Top so instead I did some stitching. :-) I'll share later.

Happy Monday - have a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by!

This adorable girl reminds me of my daughter, Kris when she was a little girl. She's now a grown woman and a wonderful Mom to my grandsons, Seth & Eli.

Happy Mother's Day, Kris, I love you and am very proud of the you. Seth & Eli are very blessed to have you as their Mom.

And, to my bloggy friends, I wish you a very Happy Mother's Day. I hope your family spoils you the way you deserve to be spoiled.

Webster's definition - to amuse oneself; make merry

You might recall that yesterday was all about me! So, I spent the entire day frolicking in my sewing room - woohoo! My Frolic Layer Cake was precut and I was ready to have an "X-Rated" type of day.


At the end of the day I had the guts of Schnibbles Times Two "X-Rated" assembled - big WOOHOO!!! A trim and a scrappy border will complete this cutie!

edit: It's a BIG Schnibble

I had the most wonderful day - set my TV on Direct TV channel 802 (Malt Shop Oldies) and sang along. It was truly blissful and the type of day I highly recommend - do it today not Someday! If your family can't cook for themselves then order a pizza or hand them a can opener. LOL

The day was made even more special when two Mother's Day surprises arrived - I'll share later.

Thanks for encouraging my ME day - now let me encourage you to have a ME day, as well.

I appreciate your visit - come again real soon.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

It's been a very busy week - my work schedule was beyond full - here it is already Friday! There's been very little time for ME or for YOU. LOL I've had very little time to visit your blog or respond to comments and such. Ugh! Momma said there'd be days like this. LOL

So, I've made a it's all about ME. There will be lots of sounds coming out of my sewing room cuz I'm going to spend the entire day sewing! Yes, I am!!!

Soon, it'll be all about YOU - I'll visit your blogs and try to catch up with your doings - bear with me, please!

Time's a wasting - I'm off to sew - have a fabulous day (I plan to - teehee). I appreciate your visit - thank you so much!

EDIT - Mr Daze & Cooper if you're reading this - fend for yourselves - no cooking today! :-)

Oh, I Need a Lady-In-Waiting!

I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed today - sigh!

The laundry is piled high!

The bathrooms need to be cleaned (icky job).

The floors need more than to just be swept with a glance!

The protective coating (dust) on the furniture needs to be removed.

The clutter needs to be cleared out.

All I want to do is sew but when I think about sewing I start to feel guilty because there are others things that need my time and attention. Sigh! So here I sit doing absolutely nothing! Ack!!!!! It's a vicicous circle.

What to do? What to do?

Needed to vent! Thank you! :-)

The Charming Guys & Girls Club is changing things up a bit for May and June - stay tuned to possible swaps and sale. I'm setting some sewing goals for the month anyway - scroll down to see three of this month's goals.
I spent Friday evening and this afternoon cutting three projects that I hope to complete this month.

One with a Frolic Layer Cake, one with an older Mary Engelbreit Layer Cake and one with American Primer leftovers. :-) One of these projects is for the Year of Schnibble - we get to pick our own project (either a Little Schibble or a Big Schibble) for the month of May.

I have two more projects to cut so I'll show you those in a few days.

When you pop in to visit with me - it makes me smile - thank you!

In Friendship!
