BHG Bird Quilt

Here a chick, there a chick, everywhere a chick, chick..
Here is my version of the cute bird quilt

I made the "stuffed birds" out of my scrapes 
of felted wool sweaters.

The Perfect Loaf

...at least that's what the recipe says...

I followed the long fermenting process
the long baking process and here is what 
my perfect loaf turned out like..

Beautiful- Crusty- Delicious 
I made another batch.

The Respite

Sometimes one needs to remove themselves from isolation.

Margie flew to Utah with the swede and spent 10 days 
1. eating three meals a day(plus a lot of snacking)
2. sewing a velvet skirt for a great granddaughter
3. shopping
4. exercising
5. visiting grandchildren and family
6. dinner engagements with 
stimulating conversation
7. reading "the Ultimate Gift" 
by Jim Stovall
(I highly recommend reading this book)

Margie had this idea(she called it a dream) that she 
should buy herself and her
  daughters and daughters-in-law a leather coat..
so off we went to Burlington coat
 factory where we were told had the
 best selection of leather 
and suede coats. 
here she is, in her new luxurious black leather.
she was like a kid for days, wearing this coat night and day 
and taking it off only at bedtime.

...we had a nice visit and I know Margie did too!

Surprise Billboard

A funny thing happened on the way home
 from the airport...
A strange almost ethereal thing happened on the way home 
from the airport..

I looked out the window of my car and saw this beautiful woman 
whose face was smiling down at me, as I was 
driving 65 miles an hour.

I could not look back 
because I had passed the billboard, so I got off
 at the next exit of the freeway and turned around and 
found the feeder road that lead me back to the massive sign. 

There she was...

My daughter, 
Ariel had posed for some STOCK photos for RubberBall 
and they sold them to Fibernet.com

How Cool is That?

I have been bad...
I mean I have been so distracted by the various forms of "Social Networking" 
 I spend too much time on: 

1. Email
3.Cell Phone
5. Classmates.com
6. Blogging
7. Monster. com
8. Career Builders.com(still job searching)

This is what happened!!
It was the smelliest thing! 
Those poor yolks!
Sorry, I will try to be more attentive!

Good Monday Morning

I became obsessed with this quilt in the BHG Mag this month and had to go quickly to the Cotton Shop to buy my stash to make this quilt.

I am going to hand applique the birds but will take
 it to a machine quilter to finish it.

 Here is the fabric I selected... I will post my version of the quilt when I finish.
Don't you just love it..

To Grey or NOT too...

One morning as I looked at my home page Yahoo, here was this main article 
Funny but I have had some thoughts on this subject. "To Grey or Not to Grey?" 
I really like this picture because its two people who know who they are and love it! 

I'm going Grey.. and I'm OK with it!
