I've been lost in the world of Kindle..........

Haven't felt up to speed the last couple of days, so I've been laying around in bed reading my KINDLE!!! (Thank you Ed and Kathy)  I've already finished a book and started on another couple of books.  I haven't decided which to read yet.

I think Mick gave up on me.  This morning when I finally got up, the washer was running, the house was picked up, and the stew was on.  God definitely gave me a good man!! 

Life is Good! Praise God!

Everyone have a Blessed Day.....Billie

FOUR more blocks to gooooooooooo before sashing.

Block Q
I have only four more blocks to go for this sampler and have no clue what color sashing to use.  Please feel free to click on the label to look at the blocks posted here and give me your best ideas.  I have more of the solid blue left than anything else.  Maybe I should just go cream to tone it down.  Or put on my rose colored glasses and all will be well with the world!  Hope everyone had a great day!

I Got a package from the Post Man....he put it in my box....ladadada

Oh Boy, Oh Boy....goodies came in the mail today.

Birds Flying in the Air and a Full Tummy.......grin....Thank you Tio Dan

Birds in the Air

Today was a great day!  We went to Round Rock and ate Puffy Tacos at Tio Dan's with my Dear Brothers, Sister-in-Law, and Big Mick.  We ate and laughed forever!  What a blast.  I'm sure they were happy when we left....LOL.  I'm thinking only my brothers and I enjoyed the stupid humor.  We are so weird. 

Full and content, I decided to sew this block.  Since cardinals are my favorite birds, I made the block in red.  Off to clean up the mess that paper piecing makes.  Hope everyone had a day as good as mine.

IF I HAD Sandi at Alegacy of Stitches

Thank you so much Sandi for this post ( ).  Please go and read Sandi's post for today.  It made me think of a few of my.......If I had neverS....

If I had never helped my Mom with genealogy (ugh), I would have never learned what made Mom tick.  It's given us much to talk about over the last 10 years.  We finally had something in common even if it made me crazy...LOL.

If I had never had cancer, I would have never started quilting.............that was on my bucket list....grin.  I wouldn't have made "Flowers for Betsy Bug" for my Mom and seen this sweet look on her face.  That sweet face was worth every stitch I made. 

We all have "If I had nevers...." in our lives.  I just love that Sandi has made me remember a few of the positive ones.

My Grandmother Jessie, long passed, embroidered the baskets.  I made a quilt from them and quilted it for Mom's 89th birthday....last year.  She's on her way to 90.  Grandma called Mom Betsy Bug when she was little.

Thank you Sandi!

Designer Mystery 2 from The Fat Quarter Shop
Looks like it's on sale now....LOL.  Story of my life.  Someone will enjoy the savings.

I'm so excited to have finished this top.  Now to win the lotto and get that long arm quilting machine I'm dreaming about to quilt it...............grin.  I did manage to take a whole week to finish the last two borders.  Click on the picture to enlarge.  I should make a game of this to see who finds the big long thread on the quilt.
