He said,

"Dig a Hole"


That's what my hubby, Ron said when I told him that I was in the mood to sew today but my sewing room was still a disaster area. Actually he said, "so what; dig a hole and enjoy". LOL So, I followed his advice - managed to dig a hole and got busy!

Start time 9:00 AM - finish time 8:00 PM (a full day of sewing)

Last week I showed you my Strawberry Fields Jelly Roll cut and ready to sew. At the end of the day I had a small pile of 2 1/2" squares, three empty bobbins, an empty spool of thread, a partial flimsy (just need to sew the rows together) and a huge smile on my face. :-)

This pattern is called "Shortcake" by Cluck, Cluck, Sew - I think I'm the last person in blogland to discover her sweet patterns. You can order Allison's patterns from her in PDF and have them in your mailbox before you know it. Awesome customer service!

I hope your day was as blissful as mine - I really needed it. :-) Thank you for popping by to visit.

A Rough Week!

(life in perspective)

Seriously - it's been a very rough week. I'm not here to ask for your pity but I do have something to say.

My hubby, Ron (aka Mr Daze) continues to struggle with health challenges due to problems with his big heart. He's scheduled for a procedure next Wednesday and we hope that will help.

My mom had major surgery last Monday and spent five days in ICU. I faced the decision - where should I be - with my mom in Texas or with my husband here in Arizona. I chose to stay here in AZ but naturally suffered some guilt. My mom's surgery went well - three aneurysms were discovered and removed. Whew! Now the healing begins.

Earlier this week the blogging community received news that our dear friend, Kaaren of The Painted Quilt has been dealt a very serious health challenge. She's one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing and it's a privilege to call her my friend. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers, please!

During all this turmoil and stress it was maliciously implied that I had done some wrongdoings! I'm not here to defend myself because my friends and I know the truth. Enough said!

I'd like to ask that we put life in perspective and think about who's been husband who's very active lifestyle has been curbed, my mom who went into a serious surgery incredibly frightened and Kaaren who is facing a battle with her health. Think about it, my friends.

False accusations and bullying needs to stop immediately - life is just too short!

Thank you for indulging me!

Cutting Up!


About two weeks ago I told you I'd found the 'magic beans' - you know THE beans I needed to help my sputtering MOJO. I had a minor set back but yesterday I decided it was time to start cutting up. Yep, I pulled out two Jelly Rolls and an older Layer Cake and got busy! I'd hoped to cut a few more but time got away from me.

Now what, you ask? I do have some plans. teehee!!! My sewing room is a total disaster area so when I get home from work today I'm going do some much needed tidying up. If it's tidy I'm more apt to get in there and sew a bit on a more regular basis. Wouldn't you agree? Time will tell - LOL.

Strawberry Fields by Fig Tree (Moda)- YUM

Oh my I can't remember what this is called but it was a yummy Layer Cake!

Dagnabbit I forgot to post the picture of Oasis Jelly Roll by 3 Sisters!

Next time.

Have a wonderful day.

In Friendship!!!

Take a walk down memory lane with me, please!

I can hardly believe that I'm about to celebrate my 5th blogiversary - five years - wowzer!!!! It all started in June 2006 and here we are five years later - it's been a wild ride. LOL

I've been thinking about a fun way to celebrate this milestone - five years is BIG! :-) So, while I've been plotting and thinking I thought about the ways I've celebrated in the past.

2007 - 1st Blogiversary

I had you guess how many quilts were in my red quilt cabinet.

2008 - 2nd Blogiversary

I had you guess how many yo-yos were in the jar. The large wabbit is Joy and Thimbles is in the jar with the yo-yos. LOL

2009 - 3rd Blogiversary

I had you guess the contents of this "Lunchbox Sewing Kit".

2010 - 4th Blogiversary

We celebrated for four days with lots of mayhem, madness & foolishness. LOL
Way too many things to mention. :-)

Stay tuned because in a day or two I'll be throwing a party to celebrate FIVE

BIG YEARS of blogging. I hope you'll come back to party with me.

The "Magic Beans"
I've been searching for the "Magic Beans" - you know, the ones that would work their 'magic' on my lack of interest in sewing/quilting. I haven't been searching hard because I figured they would eventually show up. LOL
Well, guess what? They're here - woohoo - this may just be the Magic Beans I've been seeking. It the Simple Things Quilt Along featuring two versions of a delightful pattern. My good friends Carol and Kelly have put their talents together to bring us this fabulous project.

Fabric requirements have been posted on their respective blogs and next week they will post the cutting instructions. The idea of this quilt along is to enjoy the journey - keep it simple - no pressure - just fun! My attention span is not very good these days I hope I don't lose interest before I even select fabric. LOL

I hope you plan to join us!

Thanks for popping in to visit - come back soon I'm having a party - can you guess what we'll be celebrating?

In Friendship!
