No grilling here. I had leftover hotdogs and K.Mac n cheese. Not very exciting.

My binding strips are sewn together. So, I did dishes, cleaned the bathroom sorted some stuff in the sewing room, picked out the fabrics for an ME project... wonder who is avoiding the binding.

Better go finish that ME block.

Where is everyone today? Grillin'? We just got Taco Bell. Got some new chicken things for Chocolate, cut in triangles that look like chips. And served with cheese. Not too bad. He really liked them. DGS2 and DGF are filling the pool so they can clean it. I was waiting for someone to say they wanted to get in it this year. I hope they didn't mean today.

Oh boy, Ning is at it again. There's white on the sides of the comment wall. Happy Memorial Day,Ning!

That sounds like a great breakfast, Rita. I would be stuffed for the day. Hummingbird storm? How fun. I hope you can get a pic.

I do like that dress, Cindy. It looks nice and cool.

We have bluebirds in our yard too, Barbara. I don't know where the nests are, but I love seeing them. Good luck on that binding.

Oh thanks, no you didn't answer me, I thought you were ignoring me, MaryAgnes! I crack me up. Mebbe I need to watch Breakfast at Tiffany's. Congrats to your great niece! We will have lots of baby pics to oooh and aaawww over this fall. Yippee! I guess it is like origami, you ME on the five pieces, sew them together, put lining on, sew that on, then fold the whole thing and secure with a snap. Do I even have snaps in the house? I have Velcro for sure. Worse things can happen than not cooking rice like his mom's. I am sure you tried.

Both of my reveals were in the delivery room. Same doc, same answer. It's a girl! Yippee!

The boys seem to have found things to do today, they are heading out to spend the day with friends. I think I will work on this clutch and get her package mailed to her. Her birthday is Friday, you would think I would have something planned and ready. My sinuses are hurting again, and my right eye is dripping.

You may be missing us, Mary Alice, but you keep teasing us with your menus.  Tacos. Now there's an idea for dinner.  I've recently starting cooking rice again.  Years ago a boyfriend teased me about my inability to make rice "It's not like my mother's."  So I tried to make rice like his Dominican mother and lost all confidence when I failed.  For his birthday one year a Puerto Rican friend made a pot of rice for me to serve.  It looked exactly like his mother's. Know the first thing he said? "You didn't make this."  So, what's your secret for Mexican rice?

That's funny, Kathleen.  Mom and Dad surprised at their own reveal.  Almost like the old days when the info was revealed in the delivery room. How times have changed.

I don't think my great niece ever used, or even liked, the quilt and receiving blanket and bibs I made for her first baby, so I don't think I'll waste my time and energy again.  Too bad.   It would be sorta fun to make three identical baby quilts and see if they ever show up at the same place at the same time.  Stranger things have happened.

Froggie, is that clutch made like origami?  Have you seen the clutch on Sew Very Easy?

Lovely dress, Cindy. 

I think the dog in the driveway is the best, Thel.

Beautiful hibiscus, Carol.

Happy Memorial Day, Gifties, from an overcast cool NYC. It wasn't raining when we went out earlier but the air felt lovely and cool  It's been a delightfully quiet weekend in the City because all my neighbors are out in the Hamptons with Kim. 

Froggie, I don't think I answered your question about Sally Tomatoes, Karen's newly adopted cat.  Sally Tomatoes is the character from Breakfast at Tiffany's who Holly Golightly visits at Sing Sing to give him weather reports; he's a gangster. 

And did I mention my great niece is having another baby in September?  A girl this time

I'm going to get the broom out, Rita. I'll help you with the leftovers.

Good morning,
A rainy day here with some thunderstorms possible. Need to do some laundry and cleaning today and then some sewing later this morning. DH is working today so I have the house to myself all day.
We have ruby throated hummingbirds here. I have 3 feeders set up, but there is one that they prefer. One is on my deck railing, so I can see them close up as they are feeding. They are so fast that I have not ever managed to get a good picture of them.

Good morning. It's a beautiful sunny day here. Pets are fed, shrimp plant watered, blureberry bagel consumed and first coffee going down. Rita that's one BIG breakfast. It sounds deeLICious!!

Ooh babies. So exciting for you ptotential grannies and us virtual grannies, too. The dress is very pretty, Cindy. I'm impressed with those who can sew garments. I used to be able to but don't know if I could even read a pattern anymore.

I cut the binding for the Mexican Star quilt. I decided to do the 3" binding but not bias. Hope it works out. I have plenty of the fabric that I chose , thankfully. I also got the ME design over to a USB stick and plan to sort out the fabrics for that today. 

Looking forward to the hummer pics. I think you have more varieties than here in the midwest. Mine are all fuby throated. Seeing babies would be amazing. I have 4 bluebird eggs in the nest box so that's exciting for me.

Well, if I'm going to sew that binding onto the quilt, I'd better do some major clearing of the sewing table. BBL I hope.

Pretty dress, Cindy. It's been a long time since I've sewn clothing, except for little clothing items for Addie. 

It's just after midnight and now I want breakfast Rita!! Guess I'll have to go to bed hungry.

I put together the December Itty. Soon as I get both November and December sandwiched and bound I'll post pictures. 

Weather doesn't look the best for Monday. Should be a good day to continue sewing. Goodnight my friends.
