Gee Gees blocks

One thing I have done the last few months was to make a series of blocks for a local charity quilt. Had to make them out of supplied "ugly" fat quarters (which weren't all that ugly!!), then add my own fabric to complete the blocks. There was fabric for a little girl, a little boy, a woman and a man's quilt.. here are my blocks...

Naughty nautical anyone?

Well I haven't posted in awhile, but then, no one is reading this so who cares! lol..
So what I have done lately?
OH! I went to work!

Well,I have been making a few quilt blocks for block swaps and charity quilts. I shall share the photos here for awhile.
It's something. Better than nothing.

My block swap partner wanted something Nautical.. At first I thought she said something naughty and I was going to do an awesome penis applique, something in chartruese and magenta, but then I reread what she wrote!
Swhooosh.. thank God I double checked that! Probably a penis block wouldn't have worked.. hmm.. I guess I could have said it was a lighthouse.... maybe if I embroidered a few windows up the shaft?

Mojitos vs quilting, the art of relaxation

I just wanted to let you know that horse down in the first post..... it is in Puerto Rico. I went there in June. I could not find a quilt store anywhere, so I had to drink mojitos instead of quilting. And go on a tour of the Bacardi Rum factory. And drink mojitos. Then we went on a walking tour of Old San Juan. and had a few mojitos.
Went through the Rain Forest, ate real Mofungo, with a mojito to wash it down.
I did spend some time just relaxing on the beautiful white sands beach on Palomino Island, drinking a mojito or two.
It is seriously due to the lack of quilt shops in Puerto Rico that forced me into mojito madness.
That's my story and I am sticking to it.

And so it begins...

my own Blog! I feel so.. soo...modern n all. you know.. connected to this fast paced electronic age we now live in!
Oh yeah..*head bobbing up n down* I am blogging now.
However, since I hate typing, I am not sure just how prolific I will be here.
And, what are the rules here? Can I swear? be vulgar? show off my tattoos and chew my cud?
err.. scratch that last one. I don't have several stomachs so I don't regularly regurgitate any cud and chew it...It may LOOK like I have several stomachs.. but really.. Its just the camera angle... we all know cameras add about 80 pounds..
F*ing cameras. I spit on them!
Well I would spit on them, but I would just have to wipe it up.

Crap.. I better read the rules... I dont know if I can say f*ing.

I hate rules.. they drag me down man.. ohh man..

so.. later gator..

be well....
