Here are a few of my visitors this month

Theo the cat (Mick's shadow) from next door and an intruder.

I never did get a photo of the twins together.

Momma is so pretty!

Giving Mick the Raspberry!

And last but not least, Shelley (daughter) and Isla (granddaughter) saw this little cutie by a dumpster.  They named it Wilson.  I wouldn't look at it for the longest because, I was to afraid I would keep it.  We found an animal rescue to take Wilson who turned out to be Wilma....giggle.

Everyone have a great rest of July!

I have had quite a few new follower from bloglovin from some type of sexual website. "". I have no clue why they would be following me or what they may be doing with my content.

I've contacted Bloglovin several times with no response of how to block these followers.

Unless someone has a solution for me, I'll be removing my blogs from bloglovin. 

Thanks for any help.

One Monthly Goal

Block 12

2017 Designer Mystery

"Going Steady"

Designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs

I had planned to do blocks 11 and 12 for my One Monthly Goal for June.  Yep, you guessed it.  I had already sewn block 11.  Old age and a foggy brain made this goal a lot easier....giggle.

2017 Designer Mystery

Block 12

"Going Steady"

Designed by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs

I had planned to do blocks 11 and 12 for my One Monthly Goal for June.  Yep, you guessed it.  I had already sewn block 11.  Old age made this goal easier....giggle.

That's good, because I haven't been in my sewing room for days.

As many of you know, Google is not sending emails to us when someone has commented on our blog post.
So I'm thanking you in advance for any comments. 


A few photos from my week.

Momma bird is not happy with the lack of water.  No room for splashing around.
Texas heat dries it up quickly.  All is good now, and the birdbath is cleaned and filled.

Outside air conditioning.

Nothing cuter than a Mexican or Aztec Dove.  I can't tell the difference.

They always seem so happy and love to visit.

A little of our crop from our bucket garden.
The plants are some varieties of tomatoes shared with us by our great friend Ed.
Does anyone know what causes the cracks in the top left tomato?
Looks like stretch marks to me.


Everyone enjoy your weekend.

Here are three of my blocks for the 2017 Designer Mystery from the Fat Quarter Shop.
This is sold out, but they are advertising the 2018 Designer Mystery now.  I have so many UFOs, I'll be trying to resist 2018.


My One Monthly goal for June will be to finish Blocks 11 and Block 12.

Pineapple Quilt and More

How To Sew A Pineapple Quilt Wall Hanging

My Sweet Daughter picked this cute pattern and the fabric out for her.

I've just started on this one.

Here are a couple of the leaves.


Sweet Goodies from Shelley.
The perfect size coffee cup!!


We had a couple of visitors.

He comes for water, but never gets very close.  Took these from the window.

This bad boy will not be coming back.  We do kill the venomous snakes.  We have enough without them reproducing. Upsets some of the neighbors.  I ask what do you do with them.  One said he takes them across the street.  Hey, that's where I live....hmmm


The man and his first peppers this season.


Most of the things I like to do are sitting....quilting, reading, and the computer.

I'm trying out a new hobby to get me up on my feet.

It's really kind of fun and at least I'm moving around.

Dehydrating some veggies. Not sure what I'll do with them, maybe in a soup.

I did some apples, but Mick eats those right away.

He did some jerky with the packs that came with the dehydrator, but it was pretty salty.  If anyone has a good recipe for jerky, please share.

OMG for May

Elm Street Quilts

My One Monthly Goal for May will be to add the borders to Allie's Garden of Contentment.

and to add the white border to  Spring on Bleecker Street.  Since I don't have enough fabric, I need to figure out what to do for the outer colored border.
