Whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is gracious, if there is any excellence and if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.(Philippians 4:8)

Isn't this Tweet???

Happy Middle of January!!

Jeez, it seems as if it was just yesterday that
I posted my new years good wishes to you ...
I hope you are all doing marvelous :)


Okay, as far as post titles go, that might be
 a little on the lame side, but I had to go with it once
 it got stuck in my head this morning ....

You see, this morning I made this:

Yes, a new cover for my Kindle Reader ...
Some of you may recognize the birds as leftover material
from a dress I made for my oldest this past year ...
I thought it was "tweet" and found the strips in my
stash that worked perfectly for the binding....
yes, bias binding so the strips were on an angle ...
I quilted straight lines just so as not to detract
from the cute birdies.  Fun :)

Next, you may have noticed an icon over on the rightside of my
blog that I joined Dandelion Quilts Accessory Bag Swap??
Oh, well, I did ... Kris hosts the coolest swaps, so
of course, I just had to throw my "bag" in ...

I made this one yesterday.  I think it's kinda pretty.
And, of course, since I still have a bit more time before
the deadline, I've got a few more things in mind for
which I may "accessorize" this bag with.

I've really enjoyed the satisfaction of finishing these
 quick and simple projects and look forward to starting a
few more things in the days to come,
but the alarm clock jingles early in the morning for me,
and though these two adorable creatures: 
have no school tomorrow, I have to convince the eldest
night owthat yes, Mom does need to get to bed and
that means she has to go to bed first...
"REALLY?" she queries!! 
Yes, dear ... night-night.

I wish you all a very good morning, noon and night....
Thank you for coming by to visit me and
I hope to see you again real soon!!

Happy hugs and very warm hearted wishes to each of you!


  1. Really cute fabric and projects...and adorable creatures!

  2. Oh, any hints on your Kindle cover would be most appreciated. My inlaws moved in with us, and my MIL has a Kindle. Would make a nice present for her. Nice job, you probably had those done before I had my second cup of coffee!

  3. I love your new Kindle cover. I made one last year but yours is so much cuter than mine! I love that you put the little bands in the corners to hold it...perfect. And cute, cute bag. I'm still scared of zippers; crazy but true! blessings, marlene

  4. So....so ... cute! I've missed you girlie! Did I ever thank you for the Halloween card? You sure made my day when that came. You are one of the most thoughtful people I have ever met.

  5. You have had a very rough time today....but remember God will see you through and He has His own way of dealing with 'falsehoods'.
    Passing the biggest hug and warm heart to you possible! "You are good, you are great, you are loved"!

  6. HI Wendy, girls...yes very tweet....sorry I have not been around much....I try to get to one blog each day lol
    and even that is tough most days...YOUR day is today ...love your kindle cover and its tag line....very appropriate...to shiny days

  7. Even as a little girl, I was a night owl, going to bed no earlier than 11pm. I was destined to be a quilter, I guess. I love your kindle cover!
