A UFO Finished

Today I worked on a quilt that I started for my darling daughter about 5 years ago.  I think that it is about time that I finished it since she is now 16 yo!  I have to let you know something about this daughter she loves Halloween.  She thinks that Halloween is the best holiday of the year.  My youngest has always had a sense of adventure.  I remember when she was six and seven years old we would sit and watch bad B sci-fi movies.  You remember them.  Who can forget Them or Tarantula or how about Abbott and Costello Meet the Wolf man.  One of her favorites is The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.  You can't beat Don Knotts!

Here is her quilt:

Done in all Halloween fabric.  She loves it!

Now I have one less UFO sitting around my house!

The Lion's Stocking Inspiration

I have had a request for some stocking inspiration.  I have dug up some pictures of stockings from past swaps for your inspirational pleasure!

Well was that inspirational or what?  I can not wait to see what everyone in this swap comes up with this year!  I know that I am working on mine!

Sneak Peak

I am working on an extra special project that is WAY over due.  I decided to give a sneak peak picture of it to prove that I really am working on it.

Just wait until I get it finished.  Not too long now I am adding silk ribbon flowers and beads then it gets put together.

I do have a news flash!  We got some rain here in Bastrop, Tx!  It was not much but we will take all we can get at this point!

I Am All Set

I took this week off from work to recharge.  I have been doing allot of that this year.  The most frustrating part of this year is my inability to find my happy medium.  Which brings up the question of why can't I?  Am I looking too hard for it?  Am I not trying hard enough?  All I know is it feels like I am starving for something and I can't find it.  That just brings  on a depression.

So I took this week off as a Birthday gift to myself.  Yes, my birthday was Sunday I am another year older.  I cleaned the house from the top to the bottom.  Cursing the old man the whole way.  He took two weeks vacation the later part of July and all he did was just mess the place up.  That probably added to my depression.  Between him and my youngest daughter I almost gave everything to them and moved.  I still might do that since they both want to work my nerves.  It is hard to be positive when you live with two negatives.  I digress.

Today I am to call my friend Shari then start on my quilting.  I tried to call her yesterday but she did not answer.  She was probably out buying more stash.  I hope to do that Friday as well as mail some coffee to Connie.  Mail some things to Shari and mail out a gift to Angela.  I digress again!

Becky, I received your Birthday Card.  Thank you!  I love it!  It gave me some inspiration and I have got out "Seanes" and am going to work on it!

I am also working on my stocking lesson.  For all of y'all in the Central Texas area I will be teaching it at our local quilt shop.  I am done with breakfast and ready for my day!  Shari are you home?
