    Yes, Virginia, there is a Friday. February 11

    Good Morning Ladies
    It is now Friday morning, I have been up quite a while; Some mornings there just isn't enough coffee in the world the keep my peepers open. I slept hard last night. Wow.

    It's my long day at work. But I have one of my very bestest bud's as my final client of the day. That makes it worth it. I will be counting down the hours until I see my sweet Brendie. Have you ever had a friend that just stuck in your heart as soon as you laid your peepers on them? That's me and my Brendie. We are very different but very much alike. We love to laugh. We love the Lord. And we love to gather junk.

    I thought I would share with those who may remember me mentioning several months ago that I would have one of my gourdhead dolls in a magazine this spring. I received my two issues in the mail last evening. Yay. It is Create and Decorate Magazine, Spring 2011 issue.
    Here is what my dolly looks like:
    She is quite the looker, don't you agree? Actually, she really favors one of the gals that frequents the salon I work at. Most of my doll inadvertedly resemble a family member or acquaintence. It is always a surprise to me who will end up as a face on one of my gourds.

    Off to the shower. Have a great day.
    Sewing mends the soul.

        Kudos to Blondie!! She's so famous now. Hope this doesn't go to her head that she's a STAR. Does she know we think she's a star here, too?

        Joking wid her. I love, love, love your gourd doll. Do you carve when the gourd is green????????
        I think my Fancy the Focus Fairy has definitely met her match.

        Got to complain about my right wrist this morning. Ahhhhhhh it hurts. Into the Icy Hot or something when I finish here. It hurts getting old!!!!

        Just checked my 'orders' and I'm expecting at least three HUGE boxes of fabric today. I'm canceling all 'memberships' in on-line auction sites . . . well, maybe just not yet. Get my 'donkey' in gear and get some projects finished, okay Sandy????????

          Blondie, just went back and looked at your doll picture again. Did she really kiss that frog? The frog doesn't look too happy about it.

            Wow is all I can Blondie. Congratulations on a job well done.

            Sandy take care of that wrist.

            I won't get much quilting done this weekend. My youngest son and his family are coming for the weekend. I get to smother my granddaughter with kisses for two whole days. YIPPEEEEEE!! By the way she is only 10 months old, and the apple of our eyes.

            Today begins a hunt for freezer paper!!

            Have a wonderful weekend everyone!

              Morning!
              Blondie congrats on making the magazine! Such talent you have, the gourd dolly is so cute!
              Had a nice day shopping yesterday but did not find any fabric stores. Spent enough anyway, such good sales and I NEVER pay full price for anything so I was a happy girl!
              I am enjoying my time with my younger brothers but they really make me feel like their little sister because they are very protective of me. Makes me feel so special and loved!
              I do miss my sewing and have taken pics of their living areas so I can make them a special quilt when I get back.
              Hope everyone has a happy Friday!

                  Blondie, Your doll is so cute! You certainly have an artisitc gene - your dolls, your daily pictures, quilts, and even hair styling.

                  Sandy, Wow, three boxes of fabric, you should be busy for a few days. Are you an eBay fan?

                  Started to crochet a couple of doggy scarves for the local shelter to use when they take pictures with Santa at Christmas.

                    Good morning everyone,
                    Blondie your dolls are adorable! Keep up the good work. How long do they last? Congratulations on the magazine feature. I can say I knew her when... You are an amazing women. So gifted. How's Mom this morning? Don't work too hard.
                    Sandy, hope your wrist feels better! Maybe if your fabric arrives it will get your mind off of it, unless the cold from the box makes it hurt worse. Do you have medication to help. I take a Celebrix type pill that helps me. Well, good luck with it. Maybe a heating pad would help.
                    Patti enjoy your visit!
                    Monique enjoy your children and granddaughter. The one thing we get to do is spoil our grandchildren
                    Sweet dreams Dragonfly!
                    Hope everyone has a great day. I will be sewing my blocks for the swap! YAY! What will you do today Elaine? Have a great day. Love to you all, Jan L

                        Well, it's not morning anymore, so will just say Good Day All! I am so excited, I finished the girly quilt yesterday morning, but it was my 12 hr. day at work, so just got the pics posted. I also just finished doing a flash drive back-up of my embroidery designs, since the family computer has a massive virus it got me scared about 'my' computer. DH thinks mine is safer as I am wireless to the net, but it still worries me. He got me an external harddrive for Christmas, but we haven't gotten it out of the box yet--planned for later today! The friendship braid quilt top is just about 1/2 pieced and I am LOVING it! I think I have a plan for it, just have to stay strong and do it. I still have a ton of paperwork to do with the job switch. I never dreamed of having to do so much to quit 1 job and start another.
                        Sandy, I hear you on the pain. My arms have been quite painful, from just below the elbows to just above them.....I think it's really weird! They are slowly getting better. Wow, 3 boxes of fabric!!

                          Hello Quilty friends!

                          Just popping in to say Hi! I'm taking my mom's favorite granddaughter to visit her. If we get going we'll in some swimming before lunch! Our water is off for some reason. So I guess it's good we are going to the pool. At least we'll get a shower! I'll have to call to let them know. I love living on a community well.
                          I'm doing my presentation at our WASART trainings this weekend, so if I don't get in here to visit, you all have a good weekend too!
                          Have a wonderful day however you spend it!

                            Blondie, I love your doll, and congrats on the magazine feature!
                            I've been piecing some on the friendship braid quilt top, it will be the biggest I've ever made when it's done. I need to decide if I'm going to put any sashing on, then decide on border(s) too.
                            I made some pasta salad and mixed up salmon patties for supper, so it will be a pretty quick finish when DH and I are ready to eat.
                            I love the pic Jill (jrchapman) posted of her Millhouse Inn quilt! If you haven't seen it yet, go to show and tell and have a look-see. I have a Frolic jellyroll that is just calling out to be made from the same pattern. So many plans.....so little time!

                              Hi Ladies

                              Just getting in from work, setting to go to Mom's for dinner. She is making my Luscious Larry salmon patties, one of his favorites. Yuck. It makes me want to put a finger down my throat. I will happily eat leftovers.

                              Jan, Mom is doing pretty good today. Will hear more of her day once I am down there sitting at the table. (Please Lord, let me not smell those guppy cakes. another yuck)

                              Patti! Been thinking of you all week. I am so happy that you are enjoying yourself. I don't ever like to pay full price for anything either. It is wonderful for you to have your cares washed away and put on a shelf for a while. You have worked so hard!

                              Sandy, what in the world? That wrist thing sounds terribly painful. Ouchie! Hope by now you have it taped/wrapped up and if you need some schnapps, I have enough to share.

                              Lola, you are really on a roll! I looked at your photo album link and am fascinated by the lovely work you do and embellishments with the embroidery machine. Are those tirangle thingies book tabs?

                              Thank you everyone for the kind remarks about the doll. My dolls ain't pretty but they do have character. hehehe. And Sandy, I make my own paper mache clay and sculpt over the gourds once they have dried. I had a good crop of gourds the other year, thankfully. Not every year is a good one for some reason. I am always happy with the overflow. Gourds are a fun medium for so many projects.
                              I reckon you can tell I don't like to sit idle for long. I try to make the most of every day and laugh a lot!

                              Speaking of which, have to go down to Mom's and if you want a giggle, just imagine me with a clothespin on my nose while she and Luscious devour those nasty things. ugh. At least Mom always has peanut butter and jelly. Hope her bread isn't moldy. Haven't checked that out in a few days.

                              Peace. Out. Later, gators.

                              Sewing mends the soul.
