It’s SUPER-Peony!!!

I’m afraid y’all are going to run for the hills or stone me or something if I post ONE MORE FREAKIN’ FLOWER PHOTO, but really, you have to see what I found in the back yard tonight after my walk. You just HAVE to!!

Is that not the biggest damn peony you’ve ever seen?? It’s not […]

In an Effort to Brighten Monday

I’m in the home stretch on the sun quilt now. Barring complications, I should be finished before the end of this week. But for today there are really no new photos to share that would look any different than other photos I’ve posted the past few weeks. So I’ll show you some flower photos from […]

Website Renovation Completed (Yahooo!)

After a week or so of trying, with much frustration and, yes, cussing, to figure out a new-to-me program, and a couple of weeks of working on it when I could, my website — not my blog, but my actual website — has been completely remodeled and is up-to-date for the first time in a […]

Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith

Well, I saw it yesterday. On a scale of 1 to 5, I’d give it a 3….maybe a 3 1/2. It was definitely better than episodes 1 and 2, but still not up to the level of episodes 4 - 6, in my opinion.
For one thing, I think it was about a half-hour too long. […]

On Friday: I Feel Lucky

Maybe it’s because of my Luck Bouquet.

I almost never find four-leaf clovers. I’ve found maybe 2 in my whole life. Johnny, however, finds them on a regular basis. It’s uncanny. So I have an ongoing Luck Bouquet in the garden window above my kitchen sink. We go for walks, he finds four-leaf clovers, I put […]

TV, movies, books, and oh yeah…Quilts!

I just finished watching the season finale of “Lost” and may I just say “aarrggghhh!!!” Two hours and….that’s it? That’s all they’re going to tell us? Come on!!
Yeah, yeah, I know they have to leave enough mystery to lure people back next season, but they really didn’t wind up anything at all. I feel cheated.
I […]

Progress, of sorts and the Name Thang

I got some quilting done yesterday without throwing my machine through a window or having anyone threaten to wash my mouth out with soap! Yay Me!
I was still having some thread-breakage problems as I quilted those last couple of suns, but once I finished those and moved on to the background, where there is less […]

Sun Quilt Saga

After moping around here all day Saturday feeling like death warmed over, I felt totally back to normal yesterday. Go figure! I still have no idea what was wrong Saturday, but whatever it was must’ve been a 24-hour thing.
Ok, on to the sun quilt saga.
Despite feeling puny, I quilted a couple of suns on Saturday […]
