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.

Saturday, August 10, 2019


                        Welcome to my scrap bags....yellows, greens and 
                     neutrals....and the really old border fabric...

Since there was no pattern for this one, I tried to fly by the seat of
my pants...which is why the leaves aren't wide enough at the base;
but, hey, this is my own flowering prim style...;))))

I have been dithering (driving myself crazee really) trying to figure out
how to piece this block:↓↓↓

And finally said: 
(well, I won't repeat what I really said!! lol)
I will  free draw my own leafy top..
and machine applique it on....
I'm happy, hubster's happy ;0000
We "is" all happy....


My little Vera Bradley pouch came out last night
It holds:

All my hand quilting necessities...
I worked on the pink legos blocks
while watching the Red Sox game...

Saturday supper will be bb-qued
cheeseburgers with
and french fries...
Le Chef Thom 
is in charge...;))))

I hope your weather is as glorious as ours is right now..
70's and low humidity...
a deck day....

Hugs, Julierose, La blageuse (pineapple flimsey-euse)


  1. Love it girl. I will take dinner for two delivered please. And will leave a great tip. Lol can i join you on the deck?

  2. I love the pineapple and that border is wonderful. I have some older yardage that I still love because it would make some great borders. The pineapple looks ripe and ready to slice.

  3. I prefer your leafy top to the original.

    I'm glad your weather is treating you nice finally! That sounds like a beautiful day.

  4. Oh wow. I am in love w your version of the pineapple. It's delightful. It would be so cute as a pillow on my ''tropical bed'' set up.


  5. Great pineapple and we dined on the deck. Hot dogs, sweet corn, potato salad, and chips. For dessert Lemon Meringue pie

  6. Your pineapple top is SEW much cuter than the original!!! Did I just say that out loud? My apologies to the designer. (Sometimes the truth hurts and Julierose ROCKED it!)

  7. Love your pineapple--what a sweet little quilt it will be! Our weather has been great too--wish it could stay like this for a long time!

  8. Brilliantly beautiful pineapple blocks. Looking forward to seeing the rest. bbq yummy up in Canada too.

  9. Great solution. I love seeing original designs. The stars are such fun on the pineapple body. Enjoy!

  10. Your wonky pineapple is just great! the weather is just glorious!

  11. how fun, glad you is all happy! That vera bag is way, WAY cute. LeeAnna

  12. I think your pineapple looks fabulous and I like everything about it! Well done!

  13. Just saw this I love your pineapple! I feel you did it your way and it looks great! I can't wait to see more!
