I remember one holiday years ago when the whole family was at my parents house--which was not a very big house--so the kitchen and living room was over run with adults and young-in's---and the noise and confusion "level" was over the Hill--I just threw up my arms and shouted--"Calgon take me away!!!!" the commercial for calgon was fairly popular back then--well--everybody stopped what they were doing or saying for a minute--then everyone laughed--but once that quieted down things were more at a normal level and everyone was happy---so see sometimes it doesn't take much to make others "happy"!!!!
OR sometimes a little chocolate will do it too!!!!!
Ok what did I get done today---
The Gifts of Grace block for July---they always look easy and quick on the paper--but this block has alot of work to it---I get impatient sometimes as it takes me so long to do it---but I always love the block when I am done--and I guess that is the way to go!!!
OH you say you thought the center design on this was mushrooms??? Well--yes it was--but I am just not a mushroom person--so I thought the gift package fit the topic well !!
I did alittle more hand quilting on Joy Luck too--but still not done!!!!
Was a little "under the weather" tonight so did not go for a walk--so took a couple pictures of around here--
Did this from a book on Cat patterns that Anne had a few years ago--I still am in love with it!!!! (though the funny part is these are not my colors!!!!)
This was a kit that I started when I lived in Florida in the late "80's"--
Little sister did one too!!!
And I used to love to tole paint---did two of these one for me--and three guess's who the second one was for????
Kinda short--but with the candy kisses--you have to say it was a "sweet" post tonight!!!!
Take care and just as a tiny reminder--there is only "2" more days to the month of July--OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
That called for some more chocolate kisses!!!
