I hear the sounds of FOOTBALL - does that mean that summer is over???

Uh-OH! I hear the sounds of football! The sound of Hank Williams, Jr. saying very loudly "Are You Ready for Some FOOTBALL!" is coming from the living room ( from the new big, 46" flat screen with the most bee-utifull picture ). But it's Saturday nite! How can it be FOOTBAll??

I usually spend my Sundays ( That is SUNday, not SATURday!) listening to my dear, darling husband become the creature from the black lagoon - snarling, pounding, cursing ( where does he ever get those combinations??! ) and if they LOOSE! OH MY Please don't loose! Cause then he just doesn't even speak! (lol, that's not really so bad )

Football has arrived at my house. Officially.

and it's time for me to get back to the sewing, to start posting again on my blog. To use up some fabric! I think it has multiplied, just like rabbits,, it just keeps making babies...

I have been to a couple of retreats over the last couple of months - I just love retreats! It is so great to spend time with friends, to get in a bunch of girl talk and to share a common interest with everyone. And Boy! do we ever solve the world's problems - the President just needs to call us :) We can tell him how to make the problem go away!

I make this quilt top at a retreat,, found the pattern on the Moda Bakeshop web site - so simple and easy,, just pick out a whole bunch of fabrics and cut strips.. the picture looks like my strips are waving, but they really aren't. The display board had felt and the top was sticking to it. I like how it came out. I'll get a white for the back, not sure what I will bind it in,, white would make the strips of fabric stand out, wouldn't it... or maybe sew all the colors together and use that for binding - like a rainbow... What do you think?


I have more pictures from the other retreat but I'll post those tomorrow. Now I want to go see what I've been missing on your blogs!

It's good to be back,, thank you to those of you who asked about me - I can't tell you how much that means to me...

Football,, oh well,, it could be worse!

Hi Beth, so football...sounds like quilting again to me as well, lol! A girl has to keep her sanity. Do you have a pic on the front of your blog, that stays there even when you scroll? I find it difficult to read your fabulous blog and view your gorgeous quilts, wahhh!!! Just thought I would ask, Elaine
We had a passing rain cloud a couple days ago and got an inch in our rain gauge, lol! Ya gotta love our Texas weather, eh? Cheers~~

Your football season is starting, our footy season is almost into the finals! Friday nights will be who-done-it night again!

Look forward to seeing what comes out of your sewing room in the near future.
