Busy Girl Thats Me!

Please excuse the picture quality.This was taken late last night when I got it done. This is cali Girls quilt. I started it about 4 years ago and just stashed it away. I really loved it when I started and then fell out of love with it.Lol. It was a kit from John Flynn, and I have to say the man is a genius. All the peices were precut with a laser. They were absolutely perfect and went together like a dream. I think the colors just werent me and I couldnt seem to find a good layout.It will be a perfect hug for Cali girl though and really does fit her personality.I just quilted a simple swirl meander. This one JUST came off the frame. It was the absolute worst example of how to put borders on that I could ever show you. But I wont because they are bad. I had to quilt actual pleats! Its my own too.How bad is that and WHY can I not get the proper way to do borders through my head! Anyways it is an anniversary gift that is truthfully like 20 years late...You may think I am joking on that but I am not.I am a baaaaaaaaad girl.
This is what I did for border burnout breaks.Do you see what it is Jody???? Well the story behind this IS that no one not ANYBODY would make me one! I begged I pleaded I hinted and even groveled a bit I think. Sigh. I finally had to make myself my own sewing mat. And I think its better then all yalls! Ü. Just kidding. Except you Jody pffffffttttttttt! hehehehehehe.


Oh yeah! The best part. Get a load of these new shoes! (PLEASE EXCUSE THE MESS) Artne these just the best! Yes I did wear them around the house with these socks. Yes I did make all the workers admire them. And yes they do think I am nuts. Thats ok with me. It keeps them on their toes.







Did I mention that it is just Little A and I? Going a little crazy here! JAN I really seriously gave it some thought tonight about just crashing your house! Lol. I was worried we might freak cabana boy out a little. Ü
