I had some pictures to post and couldn't get them uploaded. It says it is due to an internal error, whatever the heck that means. I really don't like to post without a picture. I'll try to be entertaining..... hmmmm......eeehhhh......welllllll.......let me think a minute.
I was going to show you a picture of all the threads hanging on the chicken quilt. When I machine quilt, I used to backstitch to secure the threads. This time, I don't know what got into me, but I decided to knot and bury the threads. But, good grief, on the sashings I have 102 stitching lines!! That's 204 starts and stops. I'm an idiot. So that is what I've been doing today in between household chores. I went to and caught up on my TV shows while doing this. What do you do with your threads? This is a serious pain in the neck.
I also had a cute picture of our little kitty, Ms. Puff. She is so stinkin' cute!! And so darn cuddly.
Amy of Park City Girl has a nice blog. Today she is having a giveaway and you just have to leave a comment telling your favorite summer activity or game when you were growing up. It is so much fun to read the comments that people left. One comment reminded me of those potholders you make with the loops and the loom. I used to make them! They were lousy potholders but I loved making them. My cousins, siblings, and I were a pack of five kids running wild on the farm. When we reminisce, we all agree that we're lucky we lived to adulthood. One summer, whenever there was a big rain, we headed to the stream that runs across the entire farm. We would jump in and ride it all the way to a bridge. At the bridge, the stream went through 2 concrete drainpipes to a pool of water on the other side. Holy smokes!! The current was nuts and the drainpipes were half full at least. It is a miracle we didn't hit our heads and drown. But we sure did have fun surfing that wild torrent.
Cross your fingers that I can figure out what is keeping me from uploading pictures. I don't know where to start. Oh yes I do!! My hubby!! Have a great day everybody, adios!

  1. That is great story about the stream and the drainpipe and I remember making those loopy pot holders too.

    I start quilting with three or four reallllly tight stitches and then end the same way. Then i just trim the threads as I go along. The trick is to bring the bobbin thread to the top before doing it.
