bitter beer

Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Benjamin Franklin

i can't say that i actually agree with Ben on that one ... i don't like beer ... maybe cuz it looks the same going down as it does coming back out, and there's just something wrong about that... 

anywho... 

i actually accomplished something in a timely manner...
holy cow - how did this thing get so doggone big?!? it was SUPPOSED to be a LAP-SIZED throw!!!

it's a flimsy!!! and ready to be packed up and sent off for quilting... 

and now i can start on the next idea that just won't get itself out of my head ... it involves another linen tea towel that is actually a calendar - whodathunk?!? and paper-pieced shudder leaves...

yeah ... uh huh ... mmhmmm

paper-pieced shudder leaves...

we'll just see about that...

Brilliant! Amazing! Inspiring! As much as you love him, your son is still a guy. Bigger is better. The quilt is the perfect size for watching ESPN.

You sure found the perfect border for that quit! That looks like a quilt that will be used and loved, not folded on the end of a bed that no one sleeps in. I can't believe how quick you got that done!
