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.

Happy mail from Babs ...All sorts of lovelies for my crazy quilting and lovely fabric squares...
Isn't she sweet ?  ;)) thank you so much Babs, for your thoughtfulness--you made my day...

Gorgeous ribbons


And this pink stuff, too
                                    And my very favorite little rosettes to use in my Crazy blocks...
Can't wait to use them all....and since Willa and Fiona saw this package, well,,,,,you know they want some, too...;))))


Here are the blocks I received from our Slab Swap:
Isn't it fascinating how people think of "neutrals"? Which was my choice of color....

I am very happy with them all and am thinking of adding my 2.5" twosies squares as a surround for a table topper...what I like best is that they are so very different from my style--and that is what is so much fun!! ; }}}}
thank you ladies: Dawn, Jacky, Rosemary and Jeanna...


Today feels like it will be a lovely and much cooler Summer's Day; so, errands this morning, maybe binding on Star Rise and finish turning and starching Eagle...very finicky work, I'm
finding--oh those points and inner curves...yikes...
my poor bird may turn out a bit tattered and spikey--
but then he has been flying for a while....lol

Hugs, Julierose, La Blageuse
