I am looking for Denyse Schmidt’s Flea Market Fancy in the greens, aquas, and browns. If anyone is interested in a swap or would like to sell some please let me know!

I’m sure I have something you might want!
Or I could send you a super cute and cuddly doggie!
Me and Ladybug


Short and Stout

On my way home from work I decided that I was going to have some tea when I got home to unwind and relax from my hard days work. *snicker*

Tea time.

Later that night I was on the couch watching American Idol and my husband was in the kitchen loading the dishwasher. This is part of his little house wife tendencies. When out of the blue he says, “Is this little teapot short and stout?”. I just smiled and told him he was a dork and went on with my AI.

Afternoon tea.

What kind of tea do you drink? What is your favorite?

Pardon my French Roses.

My mom and I don’t get to spend much time together lately. She is either working or spending time with my Dad building their dream home. This last Saturday my Dad was working all day long so me and my mom decided we would have a day of sewing. Our quilt of choice this day was the French Roses.

So we went to Hobby Lobby to get some material then came home and got busy! I decided to do Vintage/Gingham and she decided on dark reds and warm yellows.

We started cutting out all our fabrics and having fun laying them out to see what they will look like.
Here are my roses.

Here are her roses.

It is amazing how it has such a different feel just by changing the colors of the fabrics.

Since she is such and overachiever and I’m a complete slacker, here is her quilt top almost complete. I haven’t even started sewing my flowers together. She is going to add a border around the edge then she will be ready to quilt it and sew sew the binding on.

Hopefully I will be able to show you my quilt almost finished soon. But then again I wouldn’t count on it. 😉
