STUFF

Mesa would like to thank Connie for this great pink duck and the reminder for her Momma to check on her Mammos. I am overdue for the big squeeze. Thanks I-Con!!!!

Storm of feathers.....
It has been getting cold here in Utah. The other night I was sitting in the office on the computer freezing, and in runs Mesa covered with this white flakes. My first reaction was, "is it snowing?", but soon realized that these white flakes were feathers from my winter down comforter. Earlier in the day, I switched out the summer comforter for the winter comforter and while waiting for clean sheets, left the down comforter on the dining room floor..... Mesa has been missing the ladies and the babies from the blogger reunion and decided to rip into the feathers for some fun! It is amazing what a mess can be made by fine down from a small hole. From my shocked reaction, I think Mesa deducted that this activity was not pleasing her momma.


Finally the last quilt square from my 100 wish square is in.... this one is from my adult niece who I really wanted to be a part of quilt for Tate..... this puts my grand total of squares at 104 squares collected. Next step is figuring out what to do with all these squares. I will be making this on my own, since I am not lucky enough to have an aunt, mother, friend who does this sort of thing.... I am not sure if I will make it real simple with squares together or if I will boarder each square with fabric..... I have a favorite quilt that I saw and really would like to try to copy it.... Time will tell, but this is my goal to have totally done by Thanksgiving time.

Oh my! It did get cold there after we left! Look at Mesa and all her 'snow.' Hope it's salvageable (sp???...is that even a word?)

How exciting that all your quilt pieces are in! Looking forward to seeing the finished product.

Oh no! Hope the quilt isn't too ripped up!

Good news on the quilt squares! Now you can sew them altogether.

MESA! Maybe Mesa needs a time out...at my house! =)
I've been thinking about that OHGW quilt, too. And about the book for the wishes. Yes, a lot of thinking, no action.
PS My mom is in California this week buying me See's!!! Thanks again for feeding my addiction at the start of this journey, Friend! =)

You're welcome for the duckage...now go get the big squeeze.

I think Mesa looks quite pleased myself ;0)

Ah, the quilt. I had to backburner that project for a while.
