A Crazy Quilt Post
"A little bit of everything"
My Mind Is Going 90 to Nothing!!
With my daughter's latest news (new grand baby) I can't seem to get it together. In a good way. This post is going to be a little bit of everything.
First I have to say, I love going to http://stitchinbythelake.blogspot.com/ (Marlene) to read her post and she almost post daily. Her stories she tells from menopause to grand kids and people in general keep me usually in stitches. She also does beautiful quilting. Well she had a post yesterday about "Would you change anything on you if you could", I made a comment and she told me I should post about it. So here goes.
I told her I would change my double chin, because I'm beginning to feel this. I know I need to lose weight, which might would help, but it is one of those things that is gene related. My Grandma and my Mom had a double chin so I guess I'm next. As Mom aged (and she was a very pretty lady) her chin got kinda loose. My daughter, which was very young at the time, was sitting by her and her little hand was just playing with Mom's chin. She then looked up and said "Granny your just like your cow's". Kid's say the darnest things...
Next subject-with the giveaway (that is 3 post below) which will be ending tomorrow, I just want to thank everyone for coming by and entering. I may have to draw a second prize so grand baby #2 can draw too. Oh my, now I will have to have 3 when the little one gets old enough to draw (next time). On the next giveaway (next month) I'm not going to put-you get your name in twice if you help spread the word and post about it. I really appreciate all of you doing that, but I really hope I don't make any mistakes about getting every one's name in 1 or 2 times. I will make a final tour of all the blogs tomorrow. It is a neat way to read new blogs... So just check back with me, I will have a giveaway once a month until Christmas.
Next subject-I worked on a little girls outfit I'm putting online and thought I would show a picture and tell you how I made the flower pin. The pictures does not show the details to well. I took two 1-1/2" width-X-WOF lengths and sewed wrong sides together with two rows of gathering stitches down the center. I then frayed the edges on both side and both pieces of fabric. Gathered as tight as it would go and rolled it in a circle. Hand stitched it and added pin in the center.
Now I'm off to the sewing room!!!
