What am I sewing?

I have been sewing two different baby quilts & was down to the finishing of each one which is hand sewing the binding.  I decided I needed to do something that takes less than 33 hundred hours to complete.  I got this pattern from my friend & co-conspirator.
 
It never fails to amaze me that you sew something inside out & by leaving a little hole in the lining......
.....this happens
It reminds me of a chicken hatching from an egg!




The pattern for this bag is Riviera & the fabric is Riley Blake "Apple of my Eye"
I had so much fun making it I decided to do it again....this time from some fabric I had bought a while ago so I don't know the name of it.  This time I had to tax my brain as it was fat quarters with no two fabrics alike so I had to figure out how to cut it out & keep the look uniform.
It worked & I love the way it turned out....of course it helps that I just love anything blue!
Love

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in August......to wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.







Needless to say at that poin…
