Dear Jane Block K-5 finished

Not perfect but finished!!

I'm sure there must have been an easier way to make this block.  For some reason I couldn't get the foundation block to print out so I printed about a dozen pictures of the block and cut them up and paper pieced them back together.
This is the first Dear Jane block I've finished since I added my 'Dear Jane Progress' button on the right side of my blog.  It took some remembering to put that little picture of K-5 in the chart....Phewwww!
You can click on that to see my other blocks.....only 4 in total....grin.

Owls, thread, and fabric.....

I won the cute little owls from Krista's blog poppyprint a while back, but with everything going on I just took the picture.  I also won the brightly colored thread from Leona's Quilting Adventure
Go check out both of their blogs.

The fat eights I bought for myself.  Big Mick said I needed to cut down on my purchases, so I bought fat eights instead of fat quarters.  Hey, it works for me.....grin.

Have a great day!

Date Night!!

Mick and I are going to the Bastrop Opera House tonight to see, "Always.......Patsy Cline"  How fun is that!  I still remember when I was 15 (and thin) sitting at the Goliad swimming pool listening to Patsy Cline play on the speakers.  This was before I met Mick.  We were 16 and 17 when we started dating.....where did the time go.

I got my Medicare card just the other day........... :(((((  Hey it's not effective until November...giggle.

I finished a block!!!

I can't believe I was able to finish one with the mess of suitcases in my craft room.
All the grand kids and Big Mickie are off to the Blue Bell factory tour.  What fun!
I'll have time to empty the dishwasher and load it again.
Everyone have a blessed day.

Applique Thursday

Angie over at A Quilting Readers Garden has started Applique Thursday.  Believe me I need to drag out some of my applique projects to finish. 

This Thursday I'm dragging out Emilie's Raspberry Truffle quilt top I worked on in 2008 and 2009.  I really need to keep this one where I can see it so I'll get the urge to hand quilt it....grin.  You gals know how I hate finishing quilts.

Emilie's Raspberry Truffle was a kit I purchased from Connecting Threads.


Grandkids are all coming tomorrow, so next Thursday, I may just give you a link back to this blog....LOL.

Congratulations Carol in Bastrop!!

On My Design Wall..............

Yep!  That's it.  I'm babysitting the Granddog Lucky!
She's being really sweet, but is too big.  I have a fat lip and a bruised ear from cuddling with this big girl.  She keeps wanting to go out and look for lizards.
Have a great 4th!

A Couple of Pictures of My Day

From top to Bottom....Isla, Lucky, and Shelley

They look clean to me!  Good job Lucky.

Lives in the drought, but look at the teeth holes.  Some little critter was hunger.

I'm afraid.

Very Afraid!!

Poor rain in site.  And we water.
