Shopping ... Addicted to Fabric Part I

Hello! Well not so long ago my cousin and I took a day off work and went quilt shopping. We went to a store not far from her house...it is called Polka Dot Pincushion ... i didn't buy much at that shop, just a pattern, but they had the most adorable quilts on the walls and so much cute fabric ... take a look ...

This is the happy little camper Ryan that spent the day shopping with us ... This is the only purchase I made on day 1 ... I'm going to use my Christmas fabric with this and make them Christmas Presents ...

loving the fall quilt in the top left of this picture ...

They had lots of red, white and blue ... all so pretty and festive ...
How pretty is the block of the month hanging with the houses ... this picture just doesn't do it justice!
The red quilt with the trees on it was adorable ... very different ...
I would LOVE to have these bird houses hanging on the wall in my house ... would anyone like to make it for me ?!?!
Hope you are having a great day!!!

Alexander Rocks!

Let me just tell you a bit about my nephew Alexander or "AD" as he is called on his baseball team. On Alexander's first birthday he was playing T-Ball with my brother (now he'll be 13 in November) ... the boy eats, sleeps and breathes baseball! He truly loves the game and is an awesome athlete! Omar Vizquel is his idol and when Omar played for the Cleveland Indians he was #13 so you will pretty much always see that Alex has the #13 on his jerseys.

Alex plays Travel Baseball for the Dublin Green Sox and they are the State Champions. This weekend they won the USSSA 12uAAA State Championship and below is a picture of their trophy! Way to go Alex, we are so proud of you! (Alex is in the front row, 2nd from the left)

Hope everyone had a great weekend! I will be back this week with a post of pictures from my shopping day and the fabrics I bought. Have a great Monday everyone!

This n That...

Hi Everyone! Can't believe tomorrow is Monday already! I wish the weeks flew as fast as the week-ends!

Not alot going on this week-end...did a bit of sewing ... my schnibble blocks are all finished and below is a picture of a few of them. I think I'm going to put some sashing between each block to make the schnibble a bit larger... Isn't this cute! My sister-in-law gave this to me. I think they use to hang their keys on it at the back door, but i'm going to paint it black and hang it in my living room so i can hang some schnibbles from it...i think that will be adorable ... thanks Bets :O)

So, i'm am definitely not a garage sale person ... however, my husband likes garage sales and flea markets...he's all about the challenge to find something at a good price...don't get me wrong, i love a good sale, but i'm not one that believes in "one man's junk is another man's treasure!" So last friday i stopped at a garage sale with hubby and on the wall in the garage they had this plate holder hanging that said $8 ... so i told dave i wanted it and he says ... "offer them $5" ... well i'm not one to bicker over a few bucks ... i just assume give them the $8 and be on my way, but since he was there i said ... will you take $5 for that plate holder and she says "SURE" ... so now i'm all happy because i'm going to paint this black also and hang it sideways in my hallway to hang some lap size quilts on ... but before that happens, the leaves on this thing are definitely going to be removed!
Hope you have a wonderful week!

In The Pink II Done

WOO HOO!!! last weekend i started a new quilt to go with the new furniture and it's finished...i can't wait to take it to the quilter's on Monday! I've had this fabric since Fall 2008 and just couldn't figure out what to make with it, but then I got new furniture and then I got Schnibbles Times Two and along came McGuffey :O)
I plan to start working on the Schnibble for June this weekend and may just have to make a table topper out of my scraps from McGuffey.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

Hello! Well I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday week-end! Mine was actually very enjoyable! I spent Saturday sewing...a new quilt to go with my new furniture...pictures to come later this week and then Sunday we rode the Harley's a good part of the day and got a bit more sun burnt than anticipated but it was so worth it! Monday it stormed most of the day so we rented a movie and relaxed!

My nephew Michael had some fun on Saturday jumping on a trampoline but ended up giving himself a sprained neck and bad head-ache so the poor guy ended up at the ER Saturday night and got to take this lovely neck brace home :O( They said he should be better in about a week. Hope your week is off to a great start!
