What a month!

Boy, this month has been a hell month for me. With DD's boyfriend passing away from a car accident to MY DD almost dying from bee stings. She is highly allergic to bees and was at work when she felt a sting on her rear end. She went into the bathroom and found the bee. She was stung 3 times and told her boss that she needed to get home to her epi pen as she is very allergic.

The idiot had someone drive her home and by the time she got there, she was swollen and having trouble breathing. Her Step Mom gave her benedryl (no epi in the house) and called an ambulance. By the time they arrived, she was not breathing but by the time they arrived at the hospital, she was fine! What a scare! They gave her more epi's and she will now have to wear the medical alert jewelry. I have more gray hairs from this month alone then I have ever had in my life!

On a lighter note, I finished another mini for the doll quilt swap 5 and will post pictures as soon as the receipient receives it.

Happy Quilting

Sad day today

My dd's boyfriend was in a car accident a couple of nights ago. He fell asleep at the wheel of his car and crashed. His head injury was too severe and he passed away today. His family will be donating his organs. It has not been a very good holiday weekend :-(

I received my Halloween Doll Quilt!

I received my beautiful doll quilt from Michelle at Gettysburg Quilter. It is my first doll swap and first quilt to hang on my wall. I absolutely love it! She hand quilted the entire quilt and handquilted a spider web in the background.

It is cold outside!! My house is so cold, my 4yr old ds woke up and asked if we could turn the air conditioner off. I said, it is not on and he said, then why is is so cold in here? Um, it is becoming winter outside. Off to the window he went to look for snow!

On a brighter note, my beautiful puppy Minnie is such a good puppy. The first night she slept in her pen, she played with the paper for a bit and then slept through the night. She did get up and pee in the pen. She had a great day with no accidents in the house!!

Then last night, I took her outside before bed and in the morning, her pen was dry!! I took her outside and she immediately went pee and came back inside. What a good girl!


On the quilting side, I have three mini quilts to make. One is a halloween theme that will be done first to get there before Halloween. The second is a fall theme which I have started on. And the last I am not sure what it will be. Still waiting to find out.

I am going to cook "Thanksgiving dinner" later on today just because I can :-) And I have a craving for it lol. Maybe I will take picture along the way!

Happy Quilting!

Meet Minnie Bean, My new puppy

I saw this adorable mini Dachshund at the pet store a few weeks ago and fell in love. She was so snuggly and cute. I bugged DH every day and finally today, he came home and surprised me with her! She is just adorable and tiny. We named her Minnie Bean after my grandmother. (that really was her name!) It is a perfect name for her.


Here she is!

Something Shiny/A new blog

If you are anything like me, you lose your train of thought at a drop of a dime. Mid sentence you snap around "Ooohhh, something shiny"! Never to return to the sentence you were in.

Well, blogs are like that for me! I will be enjoying reading a blog and then they will link to another blog and I am "Ooohhhh, another blog" and off I go. It is a continous pattern with new links in the new blog and goes on and on and on.

It is not easy keeping track of all the wonderful blogs :-)

Happy Quilting!

Silly Men

My DH, the silly man that he is, thinks that I am the ONLY person in the world with UFO's! No matter how I try to tell him this is not the case, he just will not listen. Each time I start a new project, he wonders why I have not finished the previous one, or the one before that.

He has been checking out the price tags on my purchases lately. Wonder if that has something to do with it lol? Sigh, he just does not get it.
