Books on my list to read...

 These two are at the top of my list. Just love this author.  I don't like to read murder type books. I enjoy just everyday stories of peoples lives that are family oriented.
Just how much quilting am I gonna get accomplished with all these great books to read I am not sure .

Another Great Book....

This is a great book. I really enjoy her blossom street books. If you are a Debbie Macomber fan ya gotta read this one.
Ya know when someone that loves to read gets a good book there is/will be no quilting getting done.  Shame on me.. :)
Have a great evening.

Better late than never....

I told ya that we had been working on my sewing room floor.   The floor is down, now we must paint and put baseboard down. I am just happy as a lark that the floor is down. I am in no BIG hurry to get to the rest. I just love this flooring. It is pergo from Lowes. It had the padding on the back. I think that is the way to go. Hubby, myself and my mom put it all down. Looks Great!!  We hardly had any waste. I have been waiting so long for this floor in our whole downstairs. I just wish it were done along time ago...Here is a pic
Check out the pic about the fireplace. Do I like snowmen or not??LOL I know,,, its June and I have snowmen pics up.  Thats ok isn't it? It's my house. :)

Does this look good or what???

 Homemade pizza. Delicious!!!

Lots of cheese, mmmm!

Here's what I have been doing....

Friends at our quilt group gave me a gallon size ziplock and sandwhich size ziplock bags full of fabric scraps. Boy was I ever happy. I just love those tiny scraps! So I thought I would piddle around and do something with them. Here is what I have so far.. This is what I call a fun, no thinking sewing time....Sort of a stress reliever!
Not sure what they are going to turn into yet.... "Time will tell".      I'm giving them some serious thought.

Summer is here!!!

Yip it sure is. The temps here in Ky. have sure been hot this week. It is 1pm. here and my computer says it is 94degrees. Way too hot for me...

Here is what I have been up to in the past month... I have made a few flower arrangements. I went to Hobby Lobby and found their flowers were 50% off.. Yeah! So I bought an assortment.  Here is what 1 of the arrangements look like.

A little bit of time is being spent on this...It is a pattern off of ravelry called "Kit's Christmas Cape" by Cathy Bird. It is for 18" dolls like American Girl or their look alikes. It is actually a beautiful purple. Not sure what it is going to show up here. I'm gonna put eyelash yarn in multi colors around the edge. I think it will be cute. Granddaughter is gonna love it.

Thought for the day...
 Why do we park on
driveways, and drive on parkways....
