Shiny Macro Monday





I have been working on another quilt, I need a lot of safety pins to hold all the layers together before quilting.  They fill up this jar on my sewing table as I remove them while quilting.

Big and little

We shut done the little tank. Sold the baby convict cichlids and moved the little pleco to the big tank. He has lots of room to grow now. :)

More Butterflies :0)

I have been very lax about sharing my other butterfly quilt blocks. Life has been busy and I've been having a hard time blogging. I've been a little sad as my grandchildren moved away - I miss them terribly! Husband has been trying to keep me busy and distracted from missing them but I've still lacked the motivation to do too much. The weather has been very weird, unusually warm, and pulling me outside. I had my check up with the oncologist and the xrays and blood looked good - still no recurrence. I've been feeling the urge to share more, and got tagged in a meme, so hopefully I'll find the motivation to actually build the posts. :0) How are you all?



Ida sent me a lovely swatch of checkered hearts - she must have know how I love hearts!  Thanx again Ida!  (PS, the butterflies do get appliqu├ęd bodies - I think they'll look much better then.



Karmyn sent these fun prints!  (Sorry I guess the phone wiggled a bit as I snapped)  Meow!



Judy sent these wonderful fabrics!  Sorry again for my wiggle phone - I must have been more tired than I realized when I snapped these.

Thank you SO much ladies!  I am so excited to see this whole project come together!  I have some awesome friends who have helped bring it. :)

Lucky Macro Monday



Lucky little trinket - at least I've heard that turtles are lucky.  He's about the size of the end of my thumb, :) .

My alarm clock



Well, this one I happened to spot while riding with my husband earlier this week, but there is also one rat-ta-tat-ta-tatting in our yard every morning. I just love the Pileated Woodpeckers! Even though I never loved Woody Woodpecker, lol.

Look who I found :0)



Spring really IS here! Not only has most of the snow melted, the temperatures warmed above 60 (unusual for us this time of year) but the Robins have come back. :0)

Check back tomorrow to see who has been waking me up. . .

Think outside the Box!



I tagged along with hubs yesterday (his job entails lots of driving time and I sometimes keep him company) and when I saw this billboard for a cremation company. . .well, what do you think? lol

Badger



Who's this I see? I think it's funny that the only place we've seen a badger is at a zoo.



I live in Wisconsin - the Badger State, lol.



I call this, the badger with an itchy butt.

Precious Addy



I sure do miss my sweet grandchildren. Can't wait to see them next month when we go to visit. :0)  I took this photo of Adrianna on their last day playing with me (when they lived here they came over ever Wednesday to play).

My toy!



He seems like he's holding onto his toy for dear life, I feel much the same at times, where did I put that security blanket?



 



Maybe someone stole his toy?




My toy!


 

Have a good day! :)
