Log-A-Load for Kids 2011

The Log-A-Load for Kids is an organization made up of people in the forestry and logging industry.  All the money raised is donated to the Arkansas Children's Hospital.  The event, for our county, is being held next Saturday and this is what I will be donating.  The bestest part about this quilt is that there were 13 people that donated the shirts & 3 that donated money for the supplies.  This is the end result - (if I do say so myself) an AWESOME quilt.  I am so happy with how it turned out.

Public Service Announcement

This is a reminder to drink water during this 'SUPER HOT' time...unless your Barb in Seattle freezing...hehe!  I'm not a health care professional but I do know that we need to keep our bodies hydrated.  Everyone's busy with work, gardening, swimming, sewing...blah, blah blah...and the list goes on and during this busy time you might have a 'thin girl' moment and forget to drink fluids.  Please make sure your kids, parents, friends and pets are getting enough water.  Thank you.

ps...defining 'thin girl' moment - some of you might have heard a thin person say 'No, I haven't eaten.  I've been so busy I forgot.'  I wish I had that problem! LOL!

Kelly over at Charming Chatter has done it!  She has released her patterns.  It really is an exciting moment because I remember the times she'd blog/talk about what she was going to do.  And look at her now!  I'm  just so happy for her (and Carol - you'll have to read Kelly's post to find out about Carol).  So to celebrate, Kelly is hosting one AWESOME giveaway - she's giving away 2 full sets of her beautiful patterns (8 PDF's in all).  You can find all the details & enter HERE!

Congratulations Kelly!  I wish you much success & happiness!

Wordless Wednesday...THINK 'COOL'

Jul 9, 2011


2 weeks ago, while I was on vacation, I get a call from a lady and she wants me to make her daughter a t-shirt quilt.  So, instead of working on the Simple Things QAL (like I was planning too), I started on this quilt.  And since I have to have the Log-A-Load quilt done by the end of this month...I thought I'd go ahead and do it at the same time...
I will be making a lap sized t-shirt throw for the Log-A-Load Event in August.  I'll share more info about this quilt & event when I get it done.

I hope y'all are having a wonderful weekend!

What an honor...

 I was notified by MSamm that my quilt made it on the July banner.  Reading the email just put me in a giggling fit!  Talk about being excited?!?!?  It truly is an honor to be on this banner with these talented ladies.  I am beyond the moon...if I was a smidge thinner I'd actually jump over it, I'm so happy! lol!  You can go here to read my story & the other ladies stories.  MSamm...THANK YOU!
With the 4th of July around the corner here in the United States of America, I would like to wish everyone a safe holiday weekend...oh, and since this my blog, I'd also like to add...
