My husband hates it when I say that! He NEVER knows what's coming out of my mouth! Could be that I've been thinking about ripping out our landscaping and starting over, or painting some room of the house, or going on a diet insinuating that I will revise my current method of cooking scrumptious meals. (All which have been done over the years, and sometimes more than once!!!) No, lately I have been thinking about all the whimsical stuff I used to make and how I see so much of it on various pinterest boards. (I guess that must mean that you like it, huh?) I especially miss my birds!! Remember some of this stuff:
And finally my all time favorite:
There have been a few other ones, but I thought you might get sick of seeing them all. I just picked out the good ones! (At least the good ones to me!) These were all commission quilts! Ya think I do my best work when I get paid for it? Huh? I never thought about that before this very minute! I'll have to ponder that, I guess! Could be! I do know that I take LOTS and I mean L O T S more time in choosing fabrics so things are just RIGHT!
Well, anyway, I've been missing the birds, so I think I am (just for the fun of it) going to create some bird designs soon. I'll probably start with the QT swap. The theme is "Backyard". I was going to make a guy diving into a pool.........cause I have one! (Actually both! A hubby and a pool!) But, the birdbath has been calling me too, so I think I might have to revise my thinking! Stay tuned for that!
In the meantime, I've joined a 4th of July Mug Rug Swap and I was lucky enough to be assigned two partners. I told them I'd take two if the count was uneven.......after all, what else do I have to do all day but sew? Hello!! (I'm so friggin' lucky.......and old........and that's the real reason, you know!!) Since we know who our partners are, only sneak peeks can be revealed. Here are mine:
That's all I've done the past two days! No grocery shopping, no cleaning, no nothin'! (In fact yesterday I didn't even wear a bra all day..........such a rebel, you know! Hey, breathing is easer without it. Try it yourself!) I do have twin baby quilts to quilt. I really like them, but haven't a clue how I will quilt them so they're sitting on my dining room table waiting for me. I think they'll be next! They're for a friend of my daughters who already has 3 boys, and really wanted to try once more for a girl, but discovered that now she is having twins. Who knows yet what kind! She is a bit upset to say the least so I thought I might cheer her up??? (Well, I can try, can't I?) Although I imagine the thought of 5 boys might get me a bit upset too!!! Ya think????? Eikes...........one boy was plenty for me, thank you!!! So, that's it for today! Have a great week!
