Thank God it is Friday...Woo Hoo....

This week seems like it was long to me. I haven't done as much sewing as I could have. I have spent a lot of time cleaning house. But you really can't tell. The boys can make a clean room messy in an instant.

My garden is starting to grow a little wild. The cantalope vines are a spreadin'. The blooms from the plant are beautiful. I need to spread some sevin dust. I saw some pesky ants about. I can't wait to eat some of the things that were growing.

I went to writing workshop and had a great time. We usually draw a topic out of a basket and write about it for twenty minutes. My first story wasn't that great. The first one is usually for warming up. The second and third story turned out pretty good. When the timer goes off you stop where you are at and read it outloud. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to share some of it with you. Maybe........

Today I have to make 6 Sun Bonnet Sue blocks for a swap. I need to get off here or else I will never get done. Have a great day. I hope God Blesses you with everything you do.

I am a pet dog.....

You Would Be a Pet Dog

You're friendly, loyal, and an all around good sport. People love to be near you.
You are very open with your feelings, and you're quite vocal in expressing them.
You are sincere and kind. You love many people - without any sort of agenda.

Why you would make a great pet: You're content to chill out with your friends

Why you would make a bad pet: You always find yourself getting into trouble

What you would love about being a dog: Running around and playing

What you would hate about being a dog: Being left home alone while everyone else is out having fun

Ready to explode....

I am so full of excitement I am ready to explode. My hubby comes home tomorrow. He has been gone two weeks. We are sorely missing him. I can't wait to see the look on the kids faces when they see their daddy. Their expressions are always priceless. Our dog, Lady, will be very excited too. She loves Tim. I can't wait to see how she acts too.

My dad is doing better. He gets tired quickly now. He has to make some adjustments so he doesn't end up back in the hospital. He sounds really good and is actually trying to quit smoking. Thank God. I used to smoke so I know how hard it is to quit. I have actually quit twice in my life. This time hopefully for good. Every now and then I can smell cigarette smoke even when no one is around me smoking. It is my mind playing tricks on me.

I made 9 shoo fly blocks today. They turned out very pretty. I like those blocks. It is a great way to us a focus fabric and add some accent to it with out too much gaudiness. I think it is going to be a great block for making some baby quilts. I have a ton of UFO's And a list of future projects in mind. It is a never ending battle for me. My mind is way quicker than the hands.

There have been a lot of US soldiers dying over seas lately. It greatly saddens my heart. Especially for the families. All of people in the quilting world have been asking people to pray for them. My uncle is currently in the middle east and my husband is in the National Guard but hasn't been sent yet. I can't imagine the constant worry our fellow AMERICANS are going through. So please everyone remember to say a prayer for them Even if you don't believe in the war. They are their whether they want to be or not doing a fabulous job.


Please let the war in the middle east come to an end soon. Please protect our troops and all the innocent bystanders who don't have a choice but to be in the middle of it. Thank you lord for the many blessings that you have given us all, especially the freedom we have to worship however we want in America with minimal persecution. LORD Please bring our troops home soon. Their families and friends sorely miss them. Please be with the families who have lost loved ones. Help their hearts to heal. Please Lord forgive us for our sins and short comings.
In JESUS CHRISTS holy name we pray

Crazy Pictures

Here are a few photos I have been messing with. I took one picture and made a bunch of different ones. I have a small fascination with cameras too. LOL. The original is the bottom picture. I like being artsy fartsy. :)

Can you say exhausted.....

My poor dad is out of the hospital. He went in on Wednesday last week. He has congestive heart failure. He also had a touch of Pneumonia. He is home resting now. He sure has had a wake up call about his health. I think and hope it scared the crap out of him. He is only 55. Now he has to take heart meds for the rest of his life. I have been a mess sense it happened. I spent the day trying to find him programs to help pay for medicines. He has no insurance. I can't wait to see this doctor bill. He was there 4 night and 5 days. At least he is ok. I was worried.

I did have a little time to sew this week. I made a baby quilt top for My aunt. Her son's girlfriend had a baby. She is now a grandma. I also made a patriotic wall hanging for a swap. It turned out nice. I hope they like it. I mailed it out today.

My hubby is gone away for two weeks. He is in the National Guard. They are doing their annual training right now. He is about 4 hours away. We sure are missing him. The boys and I are ready for him to come home. It is hard on the youngest boy. He isn't as used to Dad going away for a while. He is only 4.

We went for a walk to night and took our puppy. Well she really isn't a puppy anymore. She is about full grown. She got tuckered out quick. It is so hot and humid here. We are having a drought. We are praying for rain.

I have a ton of projects to work on. It is hard to figure out which one takes Priority. I will post a picture soon of what I am working on.

God Bless you all.
