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.

I finished my Hashtag Row this
on this gray day..
I love how this came out...

I am so fascinated to see
how the other punctuation signs will 
shake out...
You can find the tutorial
here on Angela's Blog
(So Scrappy)

[Don't look too closely --as per usual--
my seam allowances are not really 1/4"
on this machine; but,  it's about fun
not perfection, RIGHT?]

[Thanks Lizzy for your
tutorial on copy/pasting--
I must have been the last
person to "not know" how to
do this!! ;000]
Both hubby and I are feeling better today...
still have that hacking cough, but
other (nasty) symptoms 
have gone away...;)))

A very light dinner is on the menu
for tonight after our digestive
issues the past two days...

We opted for 
Comfort Food:
Scrambled eggs, a la Tom πŸ‘΄
English muffins with 
and little sausage links...
Yum... πŸ‘΅


We were going to have a roast chicken
dinner, but thought that it was too rich with gravy and 
mashed potatoes and stuffing
and all.......
Tomorrow we will roast that baby!!

and stay safe

  1. Your hashtags are soooo cute. I am trying to clean up around here. So much started and i need to get done. Rich neefs a walker caxdy and table topper.will try and make pockets to accomodate all his things

  2. Your hashtags look great to me, Julierose! I have issues with a consistent 1/4 inch seam, too, but I figure as long as I'm making all the blocks, they'll go together somehow. Glad you're starting to feel better, too.

  3. I'm glad to hear you're both feeling better. Love the hashtags! It's cold and gray up here too. Not looking forward to snow.

  4. I'm glad you are both feeling better. These colds have been tough this year. Your hashtags are so cute! It's fun to see everyone's blocks.

  5. Glad you’re feeling better, Julierose. Your hashtag blocks are cute! I’m still on the fence about the punctuation quilt. I think I’ve reached my saturation point with projects (or plates spinning in the air...)

  6. Your hashtags look good! I'm also glad to hear that you are both feeling better.

  7. I love that pink!!! Hashtags are fun...I love this one!

  8. Your hashtags look adorable. Glad you two are feeling better. Wishing you a very speedy recovery.

  9. So sorry you've been sick. Glad your on the mend. #FeelGood

  10. You are so ahead of me, GF!!! Your breakfast sounds awesome. I agree with you - our pursuit of perfection is a killjoy. Embrace your wonkiness and thrive!!! Hugs.

  11. Hope you are feeling better now. We had roast chicken, gravy and stuffing the other night, so yummy. Enjoy your chicken dinner too!

  12. Your hashtags look so cute. I've often wondered about the 1/4" seam issue - does it really matter if they're exactly 1/4" provided they are the same throughout the project? I'm not a sane quilter by any means so maybe the quilt police are waiting to pounce. Glad you are starting to feel better - take care of you!

  13. SEW glad to hear that you're feeling better and look at you go! Hashtag row already done? Woohoo!! :o))

  14. I love the hashtags and the whole idea of punctuation. Glad I was able to help w the paste issues.


  15. Glad to see you are playing along with the Punctuation quilt! I will enjoy watching your progress!

  16. Great progress with the hashtags and so pleased to read that you're both feeling better!
