Due to computer difficulties ( I have decided to try a post with the Blogger Ap on my ipad) I am late in informing you that the winner is Julierose!!! Congratulations!
I am doing a lot of sewing and am looking forward to posting some pics soon, but for today...
Here's a few photos of what caught my eye as my oldest son and I spent a fantastic day together seeking out five new Seattle experiences.

Fall has arrived in the Great Northwest!
Here's the last hurrah
before the storms...
How do I know it's going to be a better than good day?
When I pass by a bright yellow barn with purple polka dots!
Today I sewed with my 2nd Saturday group of lovely ladies
up at Calico Creations in Mount Vernon.
I am working on a
SEW MUCH FUN JUST PLAYING!
Another chance to play happened with this next quilt.
ladies and frogs living in the same apartment building!
The ladies and frogs are framed in "X" and "O" fabric creating a big O.
And there are
to help create a support beam for the skyscraper apartment building. (get it? O = hug, X = kiss)
And the whole building is outlined in "lip" fabric!
(get it? You need your lips to kiss!)
Why don't the ladies kiss the frog...
and get a prince?
THAT is a good question!
Sticking with the "lady" theme...
I fussy cut tons of my groovy fabric stash
focusing on all that encompasses my "domestic diva" life.
A small sampling of what I found...
mops, brooms, dental appointments, baseball games, bowling tournaments, various instrument lessons, dogs,
fish, lizards, attempts to prettify with lipstick, nail polish, and stylish shoes with matching bags. Plus dancing and romancing the "King" of the house while dealing with three boys, TOILETS, tooth fairy and Santa duty!
With the rains
even more time
for creative sewing
Do you think the lady should
take a chance
kiss the frog?
Tell me your thoughts
and youngest son will pick a random comment
a brown bag
of random fat quarters
(guaranteed fun to play with!!!)
