Well so far anyways, it's been a beautiful day here in New York--I was ready to do my Post yesterday when my sister came by and wanted to go for pizza---PIZZA--that's a magic word for me--I like it with just cheese though--so guess I am a boring person when it comes to eating pizza!!! We did find a rummage sale on the way and this is what I bought:
I just love it--see the quilt in the center--and a basket of gingerbread's on one side and a basket of fruit on the other--it cost me a whole 50 cents--it's on my door already this morning!!!

As I was eating lunch yesterday I heard a "tiny" noise and I looked up--realized it was coming from Mrs. Perkins way and this is what I seen:

OH dear, she looks like she is hiding -- she must of done something she knows better about--I don't know how stuffed critters can get into so much trouble--but they do!!!!

OK blogging friends this is no time to be sleeping on the job--you need to sign up for Diane's Christmas in Aug challenge--you just need to make 3 Christmas items during the month of August and they can even be UFO's --you will be soo glad you joined and have a bit of a head start on the holidays--once Sept gets here--time really flys to Christmas--so--just leave me your name on the comment post that you want to join---thanks

Well, I need to pack for a Quilt class tonight and then get a little nap in--that is if the "guy' get done making all kinds of noise doing the yard work!!!! Tonight's class is a surprise for me in that I actually signed up for it: one Sharon is not teaching this one two: it's at night--I don't do night's too brain dead by then Three I have to pack up my sewing machine--it's light weight--but I still hate lugging a machine to class four: it's on paper piecing--I am not a fan of paper piecing--too many little pieces, thread and paper to clean up afterwards--I can make enough messes all on my own without doing a mess on purpose!!!! So why am I taking this class--I love the look of the quilt and the fabrics and the colors of the quilt--pretty much civil war prints--so that's it in a nut shell--

stayed tuned for the pictures of class tomorrow in the mean time--happy stitching--Hugs, just, Di
