Check this out

This is currently on the frame. This is for some lucky graduating senior at Epworth Childrens Home. This is being given by Devine Quilt Guild and I am lucky enough to quilt it.

Check out the new quilts that have been posted on the 'Customer Qults' page. I do have some new ones.
Lunch tomorrow with friends and then an audit team for Devine Quilters. More later.

Bull Bat Time

It's 'Bull Bat Time'. Oh what memories that statement brings back. This would happen at the end of the day. Usually around 5:00 or 5:30. I guess that was the time that the 'bats' would start to fly. I have no idea. However, when Mama and Aunt Helen were both alive we would gather on their patios for 'Bull Bat' time. Mama would mix her favorite adult beverage, Aunt Helen would mix hers and I would open a beer. We would sit out and enjoy the beautiful South Carolina Spring, Summer, and Fall. Someone would add in some cheese and crackers, nuts, something to munch on and we would just enjoy the end of the day. So many problems were solved during those times. I learned alot about my heritage, gardening, canning of vegetables, child rearing, just all sorts of stuff.

I'll just bet that you have had times like that too.

I miss those days.

Me and My Shadow

Just pretend that I'm not here

I know she can't see me

Will she EVER stop moving around?

She went in the bedroom, I think that I will wait here.

Can I get her to go outside? Such a nice day.

Will she come back this way? Or, go in the other direction?

Hooray, she moved into the studio!! I know she'll sit down now.

Wonder if she saw that pile of dog/cat hair in the living room?
My house is not really 'dirty', it's just a lot of clutter that has piled up since I returned from Quilt Camp. The Longarm Group will be meeting here on Saturday, so, I needed to do some pickup. This is the shadow that I have when I go to do anything. This is the slimmed down 'Rocky'. He has lost over 10 pounds, but, that doesn't make it any easier to move around the house when he is following you. The only time he will go off on his own is when I am working at the computer (like now). He is currently on the screened porch--such a nice day. He will also dissappear onto my chair in the den if I am working on Olivia.

The weather in South Carolina is beginning to turn nice. Eighty degree temps are expected this week. A little rain is in the forecast for tonight. I think that spring has really sprung and I can start to work on the garden. I did plant some spinach and some flat leaf parsley today. I also put in some broccolli plants in the water trough, but it is probably to late for them. I really look forward to some fresh vegetables.

Have a good week,
