About my header

My shed is my header by my son Darrell, He painted the Robin for me and said that it reminded him of me. Because Robins use other birds nest and if there is an egg in it, they will take care of it just like its their own. He said thats what I do, I have always taken care of others in need of a home when I come across someone in need. Isnt that Sweet, I had told him I wanted a bird and this is the one he chose. Robins have solid blue eggs which are the symbols for him and his brothers and the speckled egg are the others I have taken into my home. It was very touching to me because he researched his piece, He is a true artist and has lots of great jobs. my neighbor had hers done to

BLOGGING TODAY AND MONOCHROMATIC

LRstitched (<<< click on this link to see the most incredible quilt, its quilt do-able  for a beginner>>>) FABULOUS.. 

I am practicing my review skills, because like a dumn butt, I left my $1000.00 camera at my gandsons house. So I cant post my own stuff. 

1. What I have learned blogging is you must have good pictures. Sorry for today I dont have any if your reading this. 

I cross-stitch and dont mind web-caming my monster . I make a halloween tree every year with my gandkid's name on it and this one is my Dexter. 

Angela Walters... if you havent seen some of her work, your missing out. if you hate her for it, ok... who does she think she is blogging with some of us, all this fancy dancey quilting. But this girl has won the heart of a billions american and international quilters. Just look at her sweet face and read her hard work, Come on, she sews with kids at her ankles.. I tried to mend something with my gandkids here and thought I would have a nervous break down. I aspire to make a baby quilt like this and cudo's to the quilter too. This quilt dances !

Quokkaquilts(( LOL))) My laugh for today! (entertaining )LOL !!! I jumped into EPP, no I am not showing my work, cuz it sucks ! But these Girls can and they are all over the World and Funny Travels and Pics, Thats Why the Sew along is called the Traveling Pic Group and you get to see beautiful photography and some crappy pics too, but these girls and their group are f. u. n. n. y. ! Plus Talented..

Madame Samm Who would know that she has a book out.she is such a good online jokester & cheer leader, I have to go back and read her verses again, I dont believe it. Madm Samm, my ? to you today is Do you Smoke?( I want tell anyone {wink}) I would never eat oatmeal but its not because of you. LOVE YA !

MC not MC hammer but Maureen Cracknell link I met her blogging last year because her color choices caught my creative side and I love them. I was sewing with Colonial age fabrics, {dont hate} I love Colonial rich fabrics. This is the historical shop near me and if you were to gather all the experience in that shop and write it down, you would have Volumes like the ole encyclopedia's that some of us bought in 60's and through the 80's   . These ladies are devoted to their stitching and know by looking at fabric what year it represents, they sew in a musuem for gods sake. They are the nuns of Quilting. Anyway, back to my friend MC. She emails me one night when I was feeling badly and couldnt get out of bed and it was like a light bulb went off in my head. "{Plan Shirley to buy the colors that make you feel good} I havent gotten to sew with them much this year but I have been saving them. So next year you will see last years.  My family has reproduced and multiliplied this year, I have 2 new daughter n laws and a new gandson, So I have been sewing for them. For example his room is decorated in Baseball, he doesnt want Rock n Romance.. I have 5 new gandkids under 4, so its been a blessing. 
I was also in mourning a friend and my sister n law, this is me with my nieces. We are coming up on the anniversary of her death from a horrible painful disease. This is the last time I saw her. I miss her and she would never want me to weep from it.

Ellison Lane Stash Scrappy is the new Quilt along I joined to Use my colors because thats exactly what this Blogger has. Bright Happy Colors. I slashed into a bundle I won.  I made the wrong block, didnt quite understand MONOCHROMATIC.. Thats ok. I wanted another reason to slash some more. I hope you click on the link and see the Happiness thats happening over there. WOW !

2. Note to self, learn to insert Button into Blog Post. 

These are a few of the Blogs I look at most days, I am researching how I want my new blog to look and how to show my creative style. I read more and try to leave comments even when the robot is on.
