Ohio Heat Wave

Before I get to

the heat wave part
I have to
show you
what's on my wish list...

This book is full
of perfectly
primitive fall patterns

and if that's not enough
there is a new line of fabric out

As it stands now
I'm looking for a
Fairy Godmother
to
fly in and wave her magic wand
filling my shelves
with a yard or bolt
or two of each fabric

What would I do with it?
why,
I'd make quilts
and more quilts
with patchwork backgrounds
appliqued pumpkins
in orange
tan
green
and
black
*
sunflowers
plus the ever essential
cats
I can always dream!

*****

I had the past week off
and spent much
of my time catching up on
everything I'd let slide this year...
and there is/was lots of it

Finished a bunch of
goodies for my selling blog
and
found a few rug patterns
I'll never hook...
plus some homespun
from Mom
and the new booklet?
*****

this past weekend
we had our
1 year Anniversary Party
for my eBay group
An American Primitive Gathering

*

planning and carrying off
an online party
isn't the simplest thing
to do
but from the feedback
a good time was had by all

We had an
Anniversary Wool Toss
Scavenger Hunt
Name that Designer contest
and
Animals in Hats photos

Will have to think up some
surprises for next year!

As always
this little group
is a constant source of
friendship and inspiration
~Thanks Ladies~

Great time Saturday Kelley - Lots of laughs! Thanks for the hardwork!

Stay cool if you can - my boys lay in front of the slider and back up if you open it - Can you say "spoiled" by the central air! LOL!

Kelley,

Sorry I missed the party. Sounds like it was a lot of fun and hope to make it to the one next year. I love your hooked rugs. You do beautiful work. Your cats are so cute. I have a cat, Stormy. He is a hoot, does the craziest things.

We all had the bestest time! My favorite part was the scavenger hunt, and seeing all the great items people selected for the categories!

Well, and Jonesy wearing his hat! :)
