100 days 100 blocks...Thats a Wrap!!




WOW!!!! I can NOT believe that I made 100 blocks for 100 days and posted them everyday for 100 days faithfully and NEVER missed a day!!! (on Instagram) WOW!!! 

I have to say I am pretty impressed with... well...ME!!! LOL!!!!! :0)
I don't usually stick to stuff like that. I'm a bouncer... I get bored very easily. I bounce from one project to the next...lots of starts. You could effectively call me a Craft TIGGER.
Here I am setting all 100 blocks on the floor near the stair case. So, I can climb the stairs and get a great picture. Hubs decided to snap a picture.

Ta-Da!!! 100 ....6" blocks from Tula Pink's "100 Modern Blocks". This was a Sew-A-Long on instagram. Over 500 people made blocks every day for 100 days. I made mine with Kaffe Fasset fabric...and Kona solids. Now I just need to decide how I'm going to put them all together. Ha!!!

But, One thing I can say for sure....it sure is one HAPPY quilt!!!!

....and that is just the way I like them!!!

Cayman Art Journal Love


 I went to see my Lovely Bestie Emily at here Cayman Island home a month ago and I'm just now writing my blog post about it. But, I have decided to keep this post simple and of few words..... just share the beautiful pictures...as all we really did was stick to the house. We did art, watched movies, napped, laughed, art, napped, danced, and laughed!!! It was very relaxing. We did go to Rum Point one day but that was it and we spent the day relaxing on lawn chairs in the sun and drawing in our journals.... and we had a few mudslides...lol!!!
So please enjoy these pictures...they pretty much speak for themselves...

I'll start with the most amazing sunrise I have ever seen....
Emily and Me :0)
Mr. Beans

I always bring home a shell that I have doodled on.

Emily made this crocheted afghan. LOVE!!!

My room for the week :0)

Just Cause :o)

I'm pretty sure if you have followed me for any amount of time you know that I LOVE my Fur-babies!!! Well, every once in a while I get a good pile of photo's and like any silly parent want to show them off. So, here is your cuteness overload for the day.   :o)
                                                                               
Bella and Daisy fresh from the groom.

The groom is such a trying experience...must take a nap!!!
Mother and Daughter zonked on my Son.
I watch movies when I sew... this day I was watching Maleficent. And little Jasper decided that he needed to get a front row seat. He was there for the whole movie. He went from laying down to sitting up...and sometimes he would get right on the TV to smell it or swat it. LOL!!!

I can NEVER sit empty lapped. There is always an animal or two...sometime three in my lap. I'm just grateful the BIG-Girl doesn't like couches!!! 
Momma Zoey...she is 12 now...and her age is showing...she is slowing down considerably. She has a heart murmur and the Doc says there is nothing that can be done in one so old. My heart will shatter when she passes. She has been with us a super long time. 
Silly Boy Jasper!!! I guess he's trying to say something here...like "Hey you...stop playing on this thing...and feed me!!!!" LOL!!!!

and then finally my favorite picture...my Big-girl coming in for a 5 minute hug!!! I love it when she does this!!! If my phone is near I will always grab it and snag a selfie. Bella loves to hug and be hugged. She will sit with her head like this for at least 5 minutes and not pull away. Often times with her eyes closed... and she sighs too. My heart fills with love for this dog every day!!! She reads my emotions more than the others. She is very protective...she doesn't like me to be sad, upset, angry, and God help the person who scares me!!! LOL!!! I've only had one other dog in my life that I would consider my best friend in the whole world. My Boston Terrier Missy...who I lost after 12 years. That has ever come close to comparing to her...and that would be my Big girl Bella.

"Dogs are Not our whole life, but they make our lives Whole." Roger Caras

Thanks for stopping by to see my fur- babies!!!
Looks like I need to add Jasper's name to my good-bye tag...LOL!!! and a paw print!!!
