Sylvia Anderson September 05, 2014

Hi Felicia, I started following you today with Bloglovin, and after reading about your grandmother living till she was 105, wanted to mention, that I lost my dad last year shortly after his 104th. birthday. It doesn't matter how long they live, it's still a devastating loss and I miss him every single day. The Jacob's Ladder is so pretty and a fitting tribute to your grandmother. Thank you so much for the giveaway opportunity.

Congratulations Sylvia, please send me your address and I will mail it out to you.  You can e-mail me at theslowquilter@gmail.com.

Scotch with 2 drops of water–Day 7 of See You In September Blog Hop

 

Something to make your morning laugh, the on to the hop to see wonder creations.

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship
And orders a Scotch with two drops of water.As the bartender gives her the drink she says' I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today.'
The bartender says 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink.
In fact, this one is on me.'
As the woman finishes her drink
The woman to her right says
'I would like to buy you a drink, too.'
The old woman says
'Thank you.
Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.'
'Coming up' says the bartender
As she finishes that drink,
The man to her left says
'I would like to buy you one, too.'
The old woman says
'Thank you.
Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.'
'Coming right up' the bartender says.
As he gives her the drink,he says
'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity.
Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?'
The old woman replies
'Sonny, when you're my age,
You've learned how to hold your liquor...
Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.'

Here is the list of participant in Day 7 of See You In September.  I am sure you will enjoy all the creative work done over the summer and things made with RB Gingham.

Not Enough Fabric##@@@!!! Day 4 See You In September

It has been a busy weekend for me, and after church I decided to get started on my next blog hop project.  I have this pattern that I got early this year at one of the quilt shows.  Reading the instructions and the fabrics needs  for the project I was ready to go.

After cutting up my first fabric I realized I did not have enough (or did I?).  I was upset that I would have to order another 1/2 year of each fabric.  After ordering the fabric, I went back to check the instructions and the fabric.  Now I am pretty mad at myself at this point.  I realized that the second fabric I had for the project was more then enough and was the main fabric in the first place not the one that I cut.

So the moral of this story is “Read twice, lay out all your fabric before cutting, and remember what you are doing.”  I will not cancel the order of the fabric, I will use it for a give away, you will just love it, and then again I might just mess up again and need to use it.  We Will see.

buttonseeyouinseptember_zps672b6bca Well tomorrow or today (when every you are reading this) is Day four of the See You In September Blog Hop.  Last week was a great week of summer projects and finishes.  And we cannot forget all the great RBD gingham projects.  So here is the list of Day 4 of the hop.
