What I want for Christmas is the $139 KINDLE!!!  Please pick me!!!  Grin.

Pretty Handy Girl blog....

Go check out this blog.  Brittany has so many creative ideas.  Today she has a beautiful decoration with a chalk board that says, "Relax! You're Home Now."  If we could all learn to do that, we would definitely be much happier.

Thanks Brittany!  That made me smile.

No Food for the Squirrels

It got really dark and cloudy here, but we got just a little bit of rain. Sammie (my weenie dog) keeps wanting outside to get the squirrels.

The squirrels plant their hickory nuts in Sam's little fenced area, and Sammie goes out and digs them up.....grin. We are going to have some hungry squirrels around here this winter.

Block G is little out of WHACK, but finished.

Noooooooo, I'm still not caught up with these blocks.  I also have no clue what color to use for sashing or borders.  This is going to be one bright quilt.

I'm already missing my Grandkids.... :((((( However, ....

Block H

I did finish a block!  It's not the same as watching one of their wonderful talent shows, but sewing does keep me busy.

Seasons from The Farmes Wife

Another Little Block.

Not Another Block of the Month................Yes! I couldn't resist.

A Christmas Story
by Jenny Elefantz

This is one of the corner blocks I made from Jenny's pattern.  Most of it is embroidery.  The fabric is Fancy Hill Farm.  Wish me enough years to finish a few of these.

Another Orangie Day or Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice or Block M

Here's hoping I have enough fabric left for nine more blocks.  Maybe I'll do a table topper instead.  I sure enjoyed doing this block.  It went together rather fast. Marge picked it from Marcia Hohn's website.  Go see it in it's orginal colors.  It's outstanding.

A Basket with a Wrinkle???....grin

Yes, a wrinkle in the handle.  I forgot to cut my strip on the bias, so my handle didn't stretch correctly.  Maybeeeeeeeeee I'll redo it someday or maybe not.  Still loving this fabric.  Doesn't take much to make me happy these days just some fabric and maybe the "Enchiladas" Mick is cooking for me right now!!!  Boy I'm getting hungry.  Smells good at my house.

Quilting Bee, EQ7 and more

I went to my Quilting Bee Group today and had the nicest time.  I don't go out much and have missed visiting with these sweet ladies.  Lots of giggles.  This evening I played with EQ7 and had a blast!! 

I finished Block L for The Sampler Society and I'm still behind....grin.  I've been using the cream with flowers as my "sometimes" background fabric, but this time I added some muslin so the yellow would show up better.

Have a Blessed Day and hug allllllllllll your babies furry and otherwise!

Goodbye Sweet Elliott!

Today we had to say goodbye to Elliott.  Elliott was 16 and had been spending his older years posing  for the camera on my quilts and taking life easy.  In his younger years he was a wild and crazy

We'll miss you dearly Elliott.

We love you!
