Feline Friday & HeLP

Hey all y'all - Sarah here. 

The laptop I use for blogging is still getting a nasty virus removed so I'm not sure that I'll be able to post today beyond this note from my phone. I've got fun stuff to post so I'll work it in someday...

Design Wall Monday - 4/13/15 - Good, Better, Bad

Good - On Thursday, I finished my penultimate Value Proposition rosette!

Better - Just minutes ago I finished the VERY last Value Prop rosette!!!

Bad - now I need to decide on a layout for all my rosettes so I can get to putting them together. Ugh, a stressful job in my eyes so it might take a while. I won't spend more than a couple days tho since I have an overnight conference this weekend and I'll have some quality hotel time available on a king size bed watching cable tv!! (a luxury I do not have at home)

PS - And just so certain people won't think I have forgotten how to use my machine - I also put together a pile of 4-patches for my Ruby Beauty quilt (altho I think it needs a better name!). I needed at least 50 to finish according to my original plan but then I got to thinking I might want to make it bigger so there is more overhang on the bed. I still need to make HSTs to go with the 4patches so I guess I'll decide if we are going bigger after the HSTs are done. Heaven forbid I have to make 2 big decisions this week. LOL!!

Feline Friday - 4/10/15

Momma!!! I don't want you in my selfie - your grin is ridiculous!!!

I don't think the peeps are really gonna care about your purple highlights. I think they would rather see my luscious long haired tail.

taking correct-color pictures is impossible...it really is more subtle than this.

Next time Zman...

The Bibliophile Files - 4/7/15

Hello and welcome to another round of The Bibliophile Files, a monthly post where I record the books I've read or listened to and encourage you to do the same!!

And lest you think you need to read an actual book ... feel free to share the latest magazine, quilt pattern book or cereal box you've read!

Finished since the last TBF:
Justice HallSweet Tea RevengeBrother OddPop goes the WeaselCalling Me Home

Currently on my car stereo: Cruel Intent

I have to say that Calling Me Home was a fabulous book about an elderly white woman and her younger black hairdresser driving her from Texas to Cincinnati for a family funeral. Along the way both ladies tell their stories, one present day and one from long ago. I loved that the audiobook was read by 2 women, making it easily discernible who was telling their story at any given time.

Ok, my fellow Bibliophiles ... what have you read in the last month??!!

Design Wall Monday - 4/6/15

Friday started with a headache and a tummy ache so it was a pretty slow going morning but a good day to lounge on the couch and watch Mad Men Season 5...by early afternoon I was feeling better and managed to make 10 purple box kite blocks... after a family fish fry I was back to watching more MM and working on hexies.


Most of Saturday was spent at my brother's house for the annual egg hunt and brunch. It's my nephews' preferred birthday party, altho their birthdays were in February and March. Given that my brother upgraded to a larger house and 3 acres last year, the invite list expanded to 60 names, 26 of which where kids. I got to help hide 577 stuffed eggs out in the yard!

Why yes...that is more snow out my dusty window!!

Sunday was all about the hexies since I was dying to watch the rest of MM. I couldn't really tell you how much of this rosette I had worked on before Sunday but I finished the last 3 hexies on the outer round.

The rest of the day, including dinner at Mom & Dad's and watching Happy Feet #1, as delivered by the Easter Bunny himself, was spent on working on this pentultimate gold rosette. Given my activities lined up between today and Saturday, it might take me until Sunday to finish it tho :-(

And just so you know the UFOs that I am trying to work on for my trunk shows (184 days!)...here is a little looksee at a pile of some of the parts. There are at least 4 larger projects and several smaller, random bits in this pile. I hope to finish 2 of the larger projects and put some of the smaller bits to use. We shall see...

See all y'all tomorrow for The Bibliophile Files!
