I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

This was from RSC13--I made one in each of that year's colors..
.a UFO that I hope to (attempt to) put together this year.  

I love those chili peppers--looks like Mr. tiger wants to try 
eating one lol......

and here is the ( pretty much ) last bit of Mr. Crow stealing those

and really old little flowers next to  the last of my Asian Ginko leaves....
loving those colors: maroon, yellow, cheddar, lime green, golds together....

As i am working steadily on my surprise quilt, I didn't make any yellows for this week, so
I thought that I would pull all of these out and think on how to put them together--as they snake all around ...hoping to finish another UFO....

Today is my DH's birthday: so far we went out for breakfast after I gave him a box of his fave cookies --Lorna Doones--as he had gotten his big present earlier--a portable  radio for
 DX-ing; then off to the booze store, BJ's and home where he is moving his antenna. 

Tomorrow we are off to my daughter's for his celebration--dinner, cake, all our grandchildren and children...and grandogs, too...so looking forward to our get together.  

Another wonderful day chez nous....

Hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse Sneakey-Snake-euse...;--))))

  9. Yes, I do remember the snake. Isn't it fun to look at all those scraps? That's what I love about scrappy quilts. Looking forward to your snake quilt. ..soon?

  10. I can not wait to see what this project will look like in the end! Nice!

  11. I think YES your tiger is a bit too interested in those peppers. I'd watch that piece for bite marks.
    You sure know how to party. Have fun tomorrow.

  12. I agree that finding the bits and parts in a scrappy quilt is one of the best parts! Happy B'day to your husband and hope you enjoy the celebrations!

  15. This looks like a caterpillar to me. Bet it turns into something beautiful!

  16. I would never attempt that snakey bit of piecing! It will be interesting to see it when all the bits come together. Glad your hubby had what sounds like a happy birthday. :- )

  17. I'm interested in seeing how this will finish up, so many lovely fabrics.

  18. Interesting snakes, looking forward to how you will use them! Happy Birthday to your hubby!
