Big Mick took Isla and Gracie bowling today, so I got to sew. I finished an easy block today. I really have enjoyed this Sampler. To check it out click on the Jelly Roll Sampler button on the right of my page. All the blocks are still available.

Big Mick and Shelley took Isla and Gracie to the Bastrop Zoo today to meet all the critters. My personal favorite is the Guinea Pig house. If you start throwing food out, they come streaming out of their house in long lines to eat. It looks at least like a 100 of them. I did go last time when it was cooler, It's just way too hot today so I stayed home and sewed a block. All the kids and Grandkids were here yesterday so it's really quiet.
Lamentations 3:22-24 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases, his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. "The LORD is my portion," says my soul, "therefore I will hope in him."
Sorry I had a great video from Selah provided by youtube posted here, but it has been removed by the "user???" .......just hum your favorite praise song right here............
I found this really quick and easy tutorial on Jenny's blog. My 10 and 11 year old granddaughters are coming this weekend. This might be a nice project to start them on in the world of sewing. What are my odds of getting them to sew.............probably slim to none....LOL
Dear Husband is off having his fun golfing today. When he brought me my coffee, he said just do whatever you want today and NOT to worry about the house......grin....LOL. He knows I don't worry about it anyway, but it was sweet of him to say.
Psalm 118:24 This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
I've had so much fun working on the Jelly Roll Sampler Blocks. They're easy enough to do and depending on your fabrics, you can get a wide variety of looks. Not too late to join! You can catch up in no time at all. If you want to quilt along, click the link above or the button on the right side of my page.
Alrighty! I finally finished Block 10, the sashing, of Nancy Rinks current free BOM. The first border fabric is on the way as I type. All the free blocks are still posted on Nancy's web page plus more to come. Don't miss out.
Thanks to Elliott for helping hold now the edge of the quilt...grin.
I rarely go to the movies, but I did yesterday. Mick, Shelley, and I went to see Night and Day with Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz. It was such a fun movie! I think I laughed and squealed through most of it. Might have to do that again soon.
I used a varigated thread, but it looks like I used 4 different skiens...interestingggg. (Click picture for a closeup) Some day when time permits and DH takes me to town to shop for thread, I'm going to buy enough thread to do the complete set. I just think this pattern is so cute. The pattern is written by Carol Williams, and look it says it's her first written pattern!
Yes, I'm grounded again for shopping on the internet.....grin....bills just came in.
