What the heck happened to July? I admit I've been busy, just not very productive in the quilting department.
Silly Daisy crawls under her dog bed in her crate. She is learning sit, down, come, and most importantly no bite! Man can this dog get mouthy! She's not too interested in her Kong toy (stuffed even). Any tips for buying bones or toys?
The kids are out of school, enjoying sprinklers by day and froyo by night. I think they're too young for, "I'm bored" but I have noticed they get crabby around 3pm everyday. Just in time for me to take an energy dive myself. I'm trying out a home style matinee today complete with popcorn and juice. Wish me luck!
A little retail therapy. I went to Michael's looking for Fandago stationary after Kate Spain posted this. Success!
I made the Pioneer Woman's Alfredo last night because H. batted her eyelashes and told me it was her favorite. She rarely makes requests and I loved making it for her.
I have a serious hankering of my own. I see Rice Krispie Treats in my future. I always add a smidge of vanilla like my Mama taught me.
I've been cutting fabric bundles for our upcoming BAMQG Habitat challenge. w00t! We have our monthly meeting this Saturday and I can't wait!!
A box from Accuquilt arrived at my doorstep. I am trying to finish quilting my Kona challenge first before opening it up. It's taunting me from the doorway, "Open! Open! Open!"
I had a dream where I turned this stack of fabric into this quilt.
EQ and I are getting to know each other. The photographer and designer in me wishes it was a little more like Adobe Photoshop or Illustrator. I do really like the print rotary instructions function.
Joel Dewberry's Heirloom has landed. I bought a stack from the Intrepid Thread. I really love the quilting weight. Have you seen the home dec line? Oh my!
Speaking of The Intrepid Thread. Julie is having an blogiversary and a huge giveaway. Julie and I know each other through the guild and she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Her online shop is one of my favorites. She has the best customer service!!! Go have a look and tell her Little Bluebell sent you. : )
H's closet doors need fixing. I'm pretty handy but I can't figure out how to take off the original wheels. Argh. So frustrating!
We took the kids to see Winnie the Pooh. I thought it was sweet and kind of sleepy. The kids thought it was hilarious. Mostly. The Backson was a little disconcerting.
A picnic in Paris? Yes please!! Hey. I've got bread, cheese and a quilt. Maybe a picnic in the backyard?
I first heard this song on Tara's blog and I can't get enough. Perfect background music for a California summer.
I can't believe it's August already. All aboard! Full steam ahead until school starts! Gulp! Already?!
