I'm gonna lick me a rainbow!

If any of you have watched Shrek 4 (the best one out of the series - my opinion), I just quoted Donkey...LOL!  The colors in the quilt just make it sparkle.  I just finished this quilt this past weekend.  I'm excited to say, she was more than pleased with the quilt.  And the best part, she thanked & hugged me for doing such a good job.  That's definitely a good feeling!  Now I have some 'ME' time to work on what I want & to do some blog surfing.  I'm going to save that for this weekend.

Pet's On Quilts Show 2011

This is the quilt I made for the Log-A-Load for Kids event last year.  But before I handed it over, I wanted to get a picture of it.  Out of nowhere, Snowball & Tiger show up like their TSA agents inspecting the goods.  It seemed like every picture I took, they were in it.  And it seemed like it took FOREVER for them to leave.  After looking over all the photos, I liked the first picture the best.  The one where Snowball is rubbing up against it.  I've even used in my header once.

Oh, and even though Snowball (male) & Tiger (female) are outside cats (you want outside cats when you live in a rural area) they both have been fixed.  No kittens here!  Or anywhere else for that matter.

Maybe next year...

For the past 6-8 weeks, the weather has been in the 100's - SUPER HOT!.  The day before Bargains Galore on 64, there are several thunderstorm fronts sweeping across AZ, TX & OK and will hit AR over the next several days.  Let me skip to the commercial version - the weather people were right & my trip was not meant to happen this year.  So I checked the weather radar (again) & the storms are coming.  I was not going to drive 2 hours to have my adventure cancelled.  I'll just make plans to go next year...if it doesn't!

 The Log-A-Load for Kids event this past Saturday night was amazing!  This Razorback quilt sold for $700.00...I know, CRAZY!  The two coolest parts about this quilt is that 16 people were involved with making this project happen and $700.00 will be going to The Arkansas Children's Hospital.  I'm just so happy to have been involved with the event this year.  I say this because this is the first year I was not on the committee.  After serving 12 years, the demand on my time has changed because I have a six year old.  But I'm okay with it because I will be making this type of quilt for the event next year and every year after...there are tons of Razorback fans here! I already have 2 t-shirts for next years!

Have a wonderful week!

Going through the few magazines I have, I realized that I won't be making any projects from this one.  So if you'd like the chance to win McCall's January 2010 issue...just leave me a comment.  I just might throw in a couple of other goodies.  I'll draw a winner on Tues., August 9th.

This giveaway is closed.
