Oh, we will get to that.......
I was able to spend some time with good friends this past week, and we did have fun!
My friends Vernie and Bev and I decided to take a little road trip to Kansas City.
We HAD to visit Quilter's Station.
Rita is the owner standing to my right, and is ALWAYS so welcoming.
We had a blast at her shop being inspired by the beautiful works of art.
Rita has offered to teach me a few things later this year
as I am travelling through the area.
If ever you are in the Kansas City area, you MUST stop at this shop!
Vernie, on the left, is a scrap quilter, not to mention a BONNIAC!
Here she is showing one of her latest scrap busting quilts,
Bonnie Hunter's "Scrappy Trips."
We are converting Bev into a scrappy quilter as well......
it's only taken a few years for her to catch on!
But, look who learned how to use the EZ Angle Ruler and Companion Angle Ruler???
Bev decided she wanted to make "Talkin' Turkey" for a friend.
I invited her over to use the Accuquilt Studio to cut her scraps, and
I taught her how to use the rulers. I think she had an "AHA" moment!
It's neat to see it when that happens.
Here are few more photos of my version of "Talkin' Turkey" in progress:
And here are a few photos of things I have seen around my house....
If you have read my blog any length of time..........
You KNOW I LOVE to cook!
Take for instance this delicious Zucchini Bread.
I make it for all of my neighbors and they actually beg for it in the summer.
However, eating things like this, and sewing for MANY, MANY, MANY
hours at a time have led me to become........
This is a nickname Doug on 'The King of Queens" was given by his
wife Carrie. I watch TVland sometimes when I sew, and this name
"stuck" with me......literally.
I am going on the Military Diet to see if I can maybe lose some weight.
Has anyone else done this diet plan? Did it work for you?
We shall see if this helps me lose anything besides my mind!
What have you been working on?
Here's hoping I become Skinny McGinny!
Thanks for all of the encouragement!
