First picture is of a Bald Eagle in my cove--isn't he majestic!! (click on photos to enlarge)
Randy just left for Dalton, GA, where I'm sure it's even hotter than it is here!! He'll be gone until Sunday evening, so what's a girl to do? Well, let's see, there's some house cleaning (yuk) on the list, I've already pulled out my pumpkin rughooking piece that's been stuffed in the closet since, hmmmm, last Fall? You know by now that I don't like to rush ANYTHING :D. I have new quilt books to drool over, and a BUNCH of WIPs that I'm going to pull out and play with. I have my Little Quilts books all out to peruse. There are so many bloggers doing doll quilts and doll quilt swaps right now that I keep wanting to do one too. :P Even Glorie's quilt guild challenge quilt was a 'little' quilt. She made a cute, cute little quilt, and did get some of the quilting done on it while she was here.
Speaking of Glorie, we had a fast, fun and furious visit weekend before last. They always are. LOL The first picture of her is how she spent the afternoon she got here (Friday)--looking through that huge stack of new books that I have and she hasn't decided she can't live without yet. ;P I do think she went home with quite a long list of 'gotta have' quilt books. :>) And of course we had to take her on a boat ride.
The other two pictures are of a little wrought-iron plant stand and a felted wool bag that I picked up at the thrift shop last week. I have several more things that I bought, but I haven't taken pictures of them yet--soon, tho. :)
I know that there are a gazillion quilters out there this week that are either getting ready to go or have already left for the Nashville Quilt show. I'm just green with envy--but oh so glad for all of you that are getting to go this year! :) I'm definitely thinking of you.
