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

I cant wait to edit that !  so I had to give you  a phone pic of  a few things I am working on.

goal is :) I will make one of the herringbone squares,, I think its 18 " .. my  monthly goal for January will be 1 block and selecting the fabric.. You know thats the fun part.. I will use MC's method and blog it. 

My fun part and party is talking to my blogging buddies and you know who you are...Thank you for sharing and listening.. Happy New Year..
Check out the Goals set, Most of us have more perspective this year and much more realistic,, Maybe its because I turned 50... I feel more at peace with my sewing. So my word is Peace.....I was born in the 60's..

  1. I love the colors in that quilt!!! I can't wait to see yours. Your Gans are super cute too.

    1. thank you, Super Mom grandma... that you are.. Out of all the profiles , millions I have read, I have never forgotten yours....My Quilt will be very eclectic for sure..

  2. I completely love your goal. So manageable. Picking out fabrics is one of the hardest things, for me. I can't wait to see your finished block.

    1. Thank you and your so right, its hard because I love all the fabrics these 2 ladies do, dont we all, especially if we all blog in this big beautiful sphere, anyway, I dont want to copy cat, but I have bought a lot of bundles and from the same people, especially if it was on MC's blog because I follow her, she was my 1st blog buddy and at the time she only had 200 or so followers ( i hate that word) were all buddies..My pt, I want the same design but different fabric to give it a diff vibe.. Have a good one..
