2 Blocks for the Month Of May!!

Here are my upcoming blocks to be done this month. We are doing two because of the month of Dec. We show the block each month that we have completed so we have to do two in order for us to get all 12 done by Dec. Quilting is so enjoyable. I really like it!! The Instructions are so good!

I will post a picture of the blocks when I get them done. :0)


March and April Quilt Blocks of the Month.....

Here are my March and April Blocks. I really like them both. I like the others too but there is just something about these two. Hope you like them. :0) Hugs!!

Pictures of the quilt blocks that I have made thus far! :0)

Ok, So I have been taking BEGINNERS Block of the Month Quilting Class. BTW I AM using my sewing machine. I am not patient enough to sit and sew each block by hand. Just wanted to say that first. I love doing this. The classes are great and the instructions are terrific! So, here's my first 2 blocks these are for Jan & Feb. I will post the next blocks later. It is taking forever for these to load and it's already 1am and I have a meeting early in the morning so I'm headed to bed. I'll try to post some more pictures tomorrow.

Here you go:

Warmer Days are upon us....

Well, I do believe that the warmer days are upon us. It has been a little cool at times but I'll take a little bit of the mixture over the sweltering heat any day! Tomorrow is the last day of school for my kids. I know they are excited. Today is their day to be outside for the most of their day. Half a day tomorrow then off to home.

I have big plans for us on Thursday! :0) The kids are just so excited.....not really. We will be having a massive family fun day of C>>>L>>>E>>>A>>>N>>>I>>>N>>>G! I'm so excited, can't you tell? With a family of 7 and two pugs there's always something that needs to be done. So, tomorrow we are going to do some of that! I won't be posting any pictures of that just because well, it's no fun to look at someone cleaning! LOL I will be posting some before and after pictures later of our house because we are getting ready to do some more painting! I've picked out several colors that are going to be used. I'll post the before and after pictures as we get them done. I can't wait. I'll have to get some tidying up done first before I can start on the paint.

I finished my last day yesterday at the church. The ladies that I work with are so sweet. They gave me a card and a $25 gift card to Wal-Mart. I really didn't expect that at all. I will sure miss them. They are a sweet bunch of ladies.

I'm still working at Dairy Queen. I really like my job. I work with some nice people and I love being around the public. The little kids coming in for ice cream are always so cute.

Well, MG is crying so I better tend to her. Hugs to whomever may read this.....remember -If you've read it give me a reply. I'd love to hear from you!!

WOW! Another great Instructional Video from my new friend Kathy!!

I actually got to sit yesterday and watch the new video I ordered from Kathy Brodock. Learn to crochet. It's really good!! I have already made a dish cloth! I just love it! I won't be wasting any time ordering the cake decorating video either! If it's as thorough as the crochet video then it'll be just awesome! I already have the Learn to Quilt in 5 Easy Lessons-which just blew me out of the water in how simple she makes everything! These are all things that I have always dreamed of knowing how to do. Now, thanks to Kathy I am learning them and can perfect them as I go along. Kathy has a wonderful blog. If you get a chance check it out. You'll love it!! I sure do!!

Hello. I just wanted to post something since I hadn't in a while. I got my DVD yesterday or the day before. (My days have started running together! LOL) I haven't had a moment to sit and watch anything on tv at all lately. Between working at DQ and working at the church I've not had much time to do anything at all. Not sure when my next day off actually is, probably not until next Tuesday (that seems to be my day off for the week). I do know that Monday is my last day at the church ( I work in their Mother's Day Out Program-we watch the little kids from 9 am till 1 pm). Then I'll only be at DQ. The kid's last day of school is Wednesday. I am so glad! Not as much running during the summer! WHEW!

Well, Just wanted to pop in. I hope everyone is doing ok. Hugs to you all.
