Butterfly and Visitors

Pattern from The Tartankiwi

Heading toward a finish here....:)

Big Mick's Catfish La Mexicana

I do not like fish, but Big Mick came up with a recipe for me.


This weeks visitors.

We've seen this gorgeous cat before.  He looks so much like our over the rainbow cat Snippie.

Awwwww....and sweet Theo from next door.  His owner says Theo and Lizza have killed two copperheads so far and have left them on his doorstep.
Earning their keep for sure.

Another unknown kitty just passing through.

One more....a creature of the night...yuck.


I'll be linking up today with Angie.

Butterflies and Mushrooms

I think I'm not going to do any more quilting on this.

I have threads all over this thing...giggle.  It's so funny how I see things after the photo.

What I've been doing this week.

Watching mushrooms grow.  It's my new hobby.

Poor baby frog is having a bad hair day.

and be prepared to run!

Mother Day and other Goodies.

Doing a little quilting on the butterfly Pillow!

The little blue bags are from 31. They hold my large and small patterns perfectly.  This was from Mick for Mother's Day....guess I should tell him what he got me....giggle.

These are also from 31, but I haven't decided what to throw in them yet.

This sweet little box and drawing are from my daughter Shelley.
So Sweet.

She also gave me this terrific basket.
Not sure what all will actually end up in all my new containers, but I've definitely have a color theme going.

My son gave me me a Amazon Gift Card.  Always a welcome gift.  So far I've purchased a new hardback book, It's a Long Story by my favorite Willie Nelson.
No I haven't got to read it yet, because Big Mick is hogging it.  This is the first book he's actually read for pleasure.  Yet another new hobby for him.

Thinking of also getting me a pillow form from Amazon to stuff in my Butterfly.

Thanks so very much Brett and Shelley....Oh and you too Big Mickie :)

I finished the border on my blanket.  It came out a little wavy, but there you go.

Here's the video with instructions if you want to try one.

Tartankiwi Butterfly

I made this Butterfly last August for 

The Tartankiwi

I can't believe it's been this long already.  I kept it on my design wall so I wouldn't forget it with intentions of making it into a pillow.

After 9 months, it has a border.

Thinking of this for the backing.

I got a new goody for my overflow of fabric...giggle.

I should live long enough to use it all...:)
