dressing

I love salads! Wish I could grow veggies here without the woodland critters eating them. My Dad saw a groundhog nibbling my ornamental peppers, even...but they're so cute! I'll plant extra for him next year, lol.

chair

Yeah, but why should they abstain when all the other woodland critters are doing the same thing? It's a constant battle, and it's really taking the fun out of gardening. I might just stick to houseplants.

This is what my son said about the quilt on my facebook page:

Wow Mema, that's so awesome. Ur amazing! Baby will love it. =)
Its adorable to see u in grandma mode! Hahaha. Love u!

And then I said:

I'm chuckling!!! Believe me, making the quilt is harder than it looks! It's not perfect, but Mema's putting a lot of love into it!

Then Eric said:

I know u are, and that's wonderful! And if I know u at all, ur "not perfect" is still gona be pretty darn awesome!

And this is what Sunny said:

Aww, Mema... it's nifty! The Babe will be comfy for sure! :) thank you so much!

Guess we were all busy yesterday! I've been tackling the task of sorting through a drawerful of papers that I've collected since '05. Stuff that should've been filed, pitched, shredded, etc. Even found a couple of old pieces of junk mail, lol. I've got the spare bed covered with organized piles, filled the shredder twice; now to file the rest. It's sooo not fun...

The last few times they've been over, they don't leave until after 9:00. Last Sunday, they were here til 10:00. And Sterling gets whiny when he gets tired.

No Colleen, I haven't finished the quilt. I don't like the material I chose for the backing. It's too slippery & thick for me to work with, so I'm going to go buy a blue flannel for the backing...maybe a plaid or a print of some sort that combines most of the other colors in the quilt. I'll use the fuzzy material for something else, maybe a teddy bear or a little jacket. I might even use the fuzzy material to make a couple of appliques to add to the quilt, just because I like the feel and texture of it. I think making something smaller with that fabric will be easier for me to sew. I hope to get the backing sewn today and the appliques and transfers all ironed and sewn on, and then tie it with the yarn.

I hope to get it finished this weekend. I got the backing, the batting, and the top all pinned together, but I decided to add a blanket binding to it, so will need to go that tomorrow. And then I think I will try quilting it on the sewing machine, it was really hard trying to pull yarn thru 3 thicknesses of flannel. Then, I just need to put on the appliques and the transfers. That part will take all of 20 minutes or so...In the meantime, I have made a baby beanie, and have started on a crocheted sweater. Photo for the beanie will be sent to you in d-mail, i think jan has already seen it.

Dems, JRW, KY, and ctmorris, sent you all d-mails!

Thanks Ky. I'm really enjoying making these things for baby! The little sweater is going to be so cute when it's finished. I have the back and one side of the front finished so far. And about 1/3 of the other front piece. My eyes started to bother me, so I'm taking a break from it now.

I've had a very busy day today. Went to the fabric store to get more yarn to finish the sweater, and ended up buying a pattern and some green corduroy to make a little pair of pants to go with the sweater; went grocery shopping; did some weeding in the garden, since it finally cooled off enough to tolerate being in the backyard; grilled steaks for dinner; and then went to work on my various projects. Finally had a moment to say Hi!

Dh is funny...he saw me sitting in my wingback chair crocheting a little while ago, shook his head, and said "I thought I'd never see the day." LOL!

Well, that was short-lived...Dh wants me to watch tv with him, so I guess I'll catch you all tomorrow.

KY - don't be afraid of joint replacements - just get a great Dr, follow the Dr instructions, and you'll do fine, when the time comes...have had 4 joint replacements and haven't regretted it a bit...I did notice that the folks who did their pre-surgery exercises did much better and got around quicker...if you need the surgery, let me know - I'll give you the whole routine !!

Hi everyone. I had my knee operated on for a torn cartilidge [twice] and it's never been any good. I had to leave work because I couldn't do the walking and kneeling that was needed. I reckon I should have sued the Dr [ quack] but work cover said they wouldn't go there. It's 8 years since the first op and I still can't kneel on it. Makes it hard when something has rolled under a cupboard or bed. I have to lay down and then you should see me trying to get back up. lol Colleen

grrrrr...!!!!! I need a break!!!! I'm getting frustrated with this little baby sweater...had it almost all stitched together when I realized I stitched the one sleeve to the back instead of stitching the front and back together. Took me longer to take it apart than it did to hand stitch it, because I didn't want to ruin any of the crochet stitching and have to redo it.

Yeah, I decided to stop working on the sweater until the weekend. I'll get it finished Saturday for sure. I gotta call my mom and ask her why the thread keeps breaking and/or unthreading on her sewing machine. I want to get the quilt done too. I have the blanket binding and appliques all pinned on, so it just needs to be sewn.

Elaborate
We are going with some chocolate tones, look up chocolate boudior, bathroom, vogue necessary rooms, la toilette. or Small Bathrooms painted Brown at yahoo images, it was amazing we have quite tall ceiling in there and there is enough white (shower, ceiling, tile, sink/counter,and mirrored tiles that the dark walls won't bee too dark. I think I am going for the dark mahogany cherry color over the back of the shower. Our theme is victorian women with hats, and we are tring to keep a slight pinky tone in the browns since there is a burgandy stripe at the backsplash of our sink and the pics have rosy tones as well..Lust looking to get a really cool plant to add and a little new molding for around our towel cabinents.I will have to post a pic and then show the colors I am most sure we're gonna use :O)

Buffy I can't use a dark colour in my b/room as it is only tiny. I don't want white as that is what is there now. I want a change. I would have loved to have cream with flowers here and there but the tiles are only small and they are sooooo expensive. I think that I've made my mind up to have the large tiles 400mmx400mm but they seem awfully large to me. My son is going to bring one the size and colour that I may have chosen and I'll take it from there. As always I can never get exactly what I want. Colleen

on the large tile if you turn them and have them like diamonds across a wall it's quite interesting, even if you just do the shower or so like an accent wall.

Thanks so much. I hope you enjoy my garden as much as I do. I have a SH full of bromeliads and right up the back have cacti. The succulents are closer to the house. There's Brugmansias everywhere, but most are seedlings that haven't flowered as yet. Fingers crossed they flower this season then I can sort out the ones I want to keep and pass on the others.

beer. My Mum used to make Ginger Beer, I think you all may call it root beer. She used to make a ginger beer plant and then do something else and bottle it up and put it down our cellar. Sometimes they would explode. what a mess. Thanks for the comments on my garden and thanks for taking the time to go and have a look. We don't take our plants inside like you do. The brugs do get a little frosted but they come back. We don't have bad frosts here very often. Colleen

I'll tell you a funny sorry about my eldest brother who passed away last year. He found one ripe peach on his tree so he decided to have the peach with cream for his supper. He had a large cereal bowl full of cream with a few pieces of peach floating around in it. He loved cream. I don't know if I can still find that post but if I can I'll let you know which "Tea Room" it was in so you can see for yourself. Needless to say, everytime someone mentions cream I think of Brian [ Stake]. Colleen

I bought them a few years ago when we were going to redo the kitchen, but then dh got sick, and now won't do the work. Luckily, we didn't buy the cabinets back then. And now, I can't afford to hire someone to do the work. And poor Eric works too much at his job to ask him to do it.

I'm busy here today...I have already done a couple loads of laundry, went out to Once Upon a Child to look around and get a feel for their prices, went to the fabric store and got regular thread so that I can finish the quilt edging, cleaned and vacuumed the living room, and now taking a break for a few minutes. Gotta get back to vacuuming the rest of the house soon. Eric and his family are coming over tomorrow.

My first day of vacation and I'm up early. Mom and brother are coming down from Reno later this morning, and will be staying the night. I need to go buy an air mattress, don't have enough beds for visitors to sleep on. Maybe I can get my mom to help me cut out the patterns and material for the baby pants, booties, and teddy bears. You know, make her earn her keep...LOL!!!

wish we would get some of that rain. I'm ready for it to be Autumn here. Today's supposed to be back into the mid-80's.

afraid

you're not the only one, Colleen. I have a terrible fear of heights, and bridges scare me more than anything because they are over the water, which also scares me to some degree. I won't swim in lakes, rivers, bays, etc. because you never know what might want to bite your toes.

Yesterday was our 36th wedding anniversary...spent the day with dh. Tuesday went to Alameda with my mom and brother.

Swimming in the ocean in Hawaii was fun; of course the water was so clear, you could see all the way to the bottom--no toe biters, lol. We used to go to a beach surrounded by a reef, so the scary critters couldn't get in. I'm not a big fan of swimming with sharks!

Hi everyone. There must be wild weather everywhere. When the boys were setting up their camp yesterday a hail storm and thunder and rain went through, The boys got soaked but then they built a fire and changed and they were fine. They've already rang me this morning [ just to see if I'm still here, I think] They had a good night and now the others are turning up so there will be other kids to play with. Dems I will let you sit down for a while and have a cuppa while you're pulling the weeds. lol Colleen

seems to be a dying art! you all are too funny...!:-)

Got the baby quilt all hand tied, tried sewing the binding on today and it kept bunching up. I need to get a "walking foot" for my sewing machine. It's a special foot that has teeth on the bottom just like the feed dog on the sewing machine, so that the top of the fabric and the bottom of the fabric are fed thru evenly, which prevents it from bunching up.

LOL, Buffy, that reminds me of a tone-deaf ex-boyfriend who thought he could sing. He would let out this horrid caterwauling, with the utmost passion, tears streaming from his eyes, and I would beg him to stop. He didn't understand that he was tone-deaf until one day I told him that if he didn't shut up, I was going to stop the car on the highway and make him get out.
I guess he didn't believe me...

thanks Ky! It's by no means perfect, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. I will probably be doing more quilts in the future, but might need to take a quilting class first. I was given boxes and boxes of fabric today from a lady friend who can no longer see well enough to sew. Some of the fabrics are vintage, so it should be fun going thru them all, and deciding which ones to use. She asked that I donate whatever I don't want to keep or use, to the Roseville Quilters Club, where she used to be a member.

Oh yes, they sure love to eat. Nothing for them to have 4 Weetbix for breakfast. The older one loves his meat, where-as the younger one is more into salads and crackers.
