Now, now ... get your mind out of the gutter on that little "quickie!" OMG, did I just say that??? Did I just think that??? (LOL) Oh well ... such is life :) Anyway, the subject is "queeelting" and the "quickie" is a "Disappearing Nine Patch" that I've been wanting to make ... several of my friends have made one recently, and this weekend I was in the mood to do the same.

Having had two whole days to work on it, I really should be showing you a "finished top," cuz it does really go together quickly; but I didn't give it as much attention as I had planned on giving it. Summer has landed big time in Davie and I'm having a bit of trouble adjusting to the heat again ... I'm also still dealing with that silly little achilles problem and my friend the last few weeks has been a "headache," sooooooooo it ended up being a "lazy kinda two days." Now that I'm back at work, I wanna be sewing on it again (LOL).

On another matter ... that being 7 to 8 inches ... OMG, your mind just fell back down into the gutter didn't it!!!!! (LOL) You all either need to pray for my soul or I need to get back in bed, roll back out and start this day off again!!!! Anyway, I was referring to the length of my hair ... it being a major "mop;" but I'm happy to say that I took the plunge and had about 7 to 8 inches cut off last week. I decided it was time to stop rebelling against old age and it feels sooooooo much better. Not the best picture in the world, but I put a new one of "yours truly" up in the left hand corner :) My honey took it as I was leaving this morning :) I feel so liberated without all that mess!

"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace." (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)

Hope this week treats you all with kindness :)


  1. You are so funny! This is going to be great.

  2. Your hair looks great and you have made me laugh! Thanks for the sweet comment you left for me :)

  3. LOVE the new doo!!!! I've been thinking of going even shorter than that!!!! (I know what you mean re: too much hair to have to mess with everyday!)

    ...and the quilt looks great! I think you got plenty finished over 2 days (but that's from the Queen of Piddling Around)
