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)

Modern Mini Mystery Reveal

The end has come to the Modern Mini Mystery round robin ... Thank you for your organizational skills, Michele ... what a task!

I give my sincere gratitude to each quilter that contributed their artistry to by 6 1/2 inch block.  I am truly impressed with the end result as well as am grateful for the opportunity to stretch my imagination with each block I was fortunate enough to work on with my group.

So, without further adieu, my completed Modern Mini Round Robin block as returned to me.... don't yet know what I'll turn this into, however, it deserves a quality finish which I will share when I can finish it right:

Wednesday's UR Priceless

YES!  The campaign ads are officially over ...
whether you won or lost ... we can all cheer that
here in the States, the campaign ads are over!!
While I am extremely grateful that I live in a nation
that gives me, and my daughters, the right to vote,
among so very many rights denied to so very many
others ... dang it all ... these campaigns are disheartening.
Just the opposite, however, and something else to cheer
about, is our very fun, creative and oh-so-inspiring
crafters sharing with us on this UR Priceless
blog hop ... so join me this Wednesday, for Day 3
and visit these fine crafters:
Day 3 - Nov. 7th
I Love Wool
I Like to Quiltblog
Keep Your Fork There's Pie
Retired to Quilt
From This to That
Jenny E.
Domestic Deficit Disorder
Pig tales and quilts
Count it all Joy!
Creative Notions
Thank you Katherine, and Madame, 
for this very fun and different hop ...
nice to see new things and new ideas.

My Day to be UR Priceless!

Welcome to Day 2 of the
U R Priceless Blog Hop...
A huge thank you to Katherine for
organizing all of us bloggers for the
hop and a wonderful and grateful
thank you to Madame Samm for
the adorable pattern for which
we are all sharing during this
hop.  Thank you!
I do happen to be on the
schedule today ... and I actually
have a few in the hopper to share
with you all ...
I actually have more that are still
on the cutting table, but I'm not
sharing those :) ... betch're glad, eh?
First up, are my little monsters ...
no! not my daughters ... at least not today!
but in their honor, I share with you these:
Okay ... I have to admit ... I ADORE the monsters!
They fit my sense of humor and sense of fun ...
I can't hardly resist anything that goofy
to make me smile :)
Next, I chose some material left over from
a quilt I've been working on ... front side:
and backside.... I used invisible thread attaching
the handle and it blends real nicely with the
silver of the handle...
For the last share I have for you today,
I chose something a bit more sophisticated ...
yes, I actually do know how to spin
a bit of sophisication when I have to!
Again, left over materials from other projects.
I hope to share with you the rest when I
get them completed ... and complete them
I will ... gift giving season is right around the
the corner and these are wonderful gift items
I'd say!
Thank you so much for visiting with me today.
Please be sure to visit my fellow blog hop stops
today, as we all enjoy encouranging support
whenever and wherever it comes from!
Day 2 - Nov.6th
And yes, you can always click on Katherine's
blog hop U R Priceless button to return to

I wish you all a wonderful .... everything!
Thank you!


Welcome to our newest family member ...
Izzy ... a 10 week old Lhasa Aspo and
not looking too interested in her puppy treat ...
I think the girls wore her out today ... seriously ...
the blur is caused by the speed of action ...
 not just bad photography!
I did manage to get a couple of things completed
 in the sewing room ... proof positive:

I have another Kindle Classy Case, a pattern by GoLightly Sewing Studio
and a What's In Your Bag?, a pattern by Stitchin' Sisters.
I best be getting back into the sewing room too,
as Monday is the beginning of the UR Priceless blog hop,
brought to us by Katherine of Sew Me Something Good
and Madame Samm of Sew We Quilt ...
Here is Monday's schedule:

Day 1 - Nov. 5th

along the way, remember you can return to
the full blog hop schedule by clicking into
