Interesting lunch

We were traveling through GA and decided to stop at WENDYs for lunch. We are minding our business when this idiot decided to steal a women's purse. He didn't get far. He ran into a guy that was built like a tree. He decked him on the spot. Two police cars came rolling in. They cuffed him and took him out. Now, why rob a Wendy if I'm going to risk that, I'm going for the jewelry. Geez. Hubby took a picture but can't get it to post. He was wearing a red jumpsuit. I think he just got out of jail… Continue

Not all about quantity. Also keep in mind the heat load of the food we eat. For example it is not the same eating a large salad of tomatoes and lettuce to eat the same amount of salad but also throw cheese, bacon and croutons about. The second calorie BIO X4 salad is much more than the first. Best dishes with low calorie density, these allow us to eat more and feel more satiated.

Besides the amount of calories…

A Little More Catching Up

Last Saturday night our quilting group got together to have dinner and wish our friend Betty ‘good luck’ on her move from our little town to the bustling city of Vernon in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley.  She has been our ‘go to’ lady for all of our long arm quilting for the past ten years or so, and we are definitely going to miss her.  We foresee many boxes of quilt tops being sent to Vernon  by Greyhound Bus over the coming years.…

Tybee Island...

We are 10 miles out of Savannah, GA on Tybee Island. I rented this place off the internet. Sometimes you get lucky. It is a small one bedroom apt. attached to a B and B. So cute with the ocean behind it.…

Well first day out was a great ride through WV. Only to get an email from the credit card company letting know they were shutting us off. Apparently, someone was trying to ship cars to Germany! So, we are on our way to Atlanta this am and our new cards are suppose to be delivered at the hotel. I hate back tracking to all the companies we do business with! Could have been worse...get a job people and stop robbing!

Another finish.

Two in the same month!  I know that is nothing to you over-achievers out there, but for me this is HUGE!  Must have been brought on by the blizzard we've had the past couple of days...or maybe that's what caused the blizzard.  

This is the overdue wedding quilt.  It is a queen sized quilt - just a simple big-block setting to showcase the main fabric with a Garden Maze sashing.  I'm calling it the Fruits of the Spirit quilt (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,…

Or, as an alternative . . .

Considering that Easter often falls in March, I made up an Easter Itty Bitty:

Meet "Chicka-bunny"!

My March Itty Bitty

I have been working from Mari's book, so my version of her March Itty Bitty is in flat cotton, not wool.  I have added a small embellishment:…

Old dog, new trick

Does anyone else use a blind ladder stitch for binding their quilts?  It was recommended to me once, but I'd never tried it until this quilt.  If done carefully, it makes a virtually invisible stitch.It took me a little while to get comfortable with it after using what I would call an applique stitch all these years (which is also pretty invisible), but I think I like the results.     

Maybe everyone else uses this stitch already and I'm just late to the party.  :D

I know I'm batty

Last night I was wide eyed and bushy tailed even though I watched t.v., read and played on my Tablet. I finally started to dose off when I heard a flutter sound and opened my eyes to see a black thing moving across the bed.  I jumped up and put the light on but nothing was there.  But I was certain I seen something.  This is at 1:30 a.m. and I am hauling stuff out from under my bed and trying to find what it was.  I put 2 and 2 together and decided it was a bat having heard the flutter…

T-Shirt quilt

Years ago when the t-shirt quilt craze was the thing to do, I thought I would no way ever want to do one for myself or attempt to work on one.  Last week, my cousin called me and asked for my help on a t-shirt quilt she is making for a friend's daughter.  I said I would help, but in the back of my mind I was thinking how the heck I was going to quilt this top?  After receiving it, I just took the bull by the horns and went for it.  Some areas have lines, some have a meander design and some…

latest finished project

I traded in my 10 yr old Janome embroidery machine for the newest model a couple of weeks ago.  Several years ago I purchased several clock designs that were advertised to fit a 5x7 hoop, but they really needed a hoop that was at least 5-1/2" wide so I was never able to use them.  Now that I have a new machine with larger hoops I couldn't wait to stitch one of them out.  My husband even took the clock apart and put it back together for me.  Next one is going to be one with apples to use in…

A Finish and a Blessing

I am not the best picture-taker, so it seems the pictures never do the quilts justice, but here is the latest finish.  I dubbed it the China Plate Quilt.  It is queen sized.

The center portion (up to the medium blue border) was done in about a day back in 2004.  Then it languished in the…
