367 Days Ago ...

367 days ago this little bundle of fur became part of our famlly. Above is Biscuit's Time To Rise @ 7 weeks old. We had no idea how she would truly change our lives in the course of a year ... even poor little fuzzy asst.{Molly II}, who isn't fond of her at all.

Now here is our sweet baby - 14 months old! She is  good dog - a little high strung at times, but starting to come into her own the older she gets. She actually slept in the bed with me and the huster last night for the first time ever! {I think we have turned a corner - FINALLY!}

I just wanted to also share a few things she has been up to this summer and fall.

 She has been redesigning the uses of our trampoline! The plastic and foam guard must taste some kind of good?

She has dug us our own private lake in the backyard! How lucky are we? Anyone care for a dip?

She has even take to redecorating and resigning the patio. How creative is she? She must not have liked the orginal design of my sweet chairs that I cherished because this is what has happened to them at the end of the summer. Wonder if she was teething? {Thankfully they are about 14 years old.}

But we love her reguardless!
Merry Christmas to Biscuit and to all a good chew toy!

Quilt A Long Lodo Style

This summer I found several blogs that were doing quilt a longs ... so I started getting jealous .. first when I saw all the amazing fabrics everyone was gathering at their houses.

Old Red Barn.....I think got the ball rolling .... but Julie at Joy's Hope told me about the barn and I also found out that Crystal at Little Bit Funky was playing with the quilt a long. I have fallen head over heels with the quilts that Julie & Crystal have both made ... so I called Lodo up and told her all about it .... sent her the links .... and we started to collecting the fabrics ... or at least I did.
This past weekend Lodo showed up at my house for the weekend with her kiddos. I thought we were going to start our quilts together ... but she had other plans. She only brought herself and was ready to work. She cut all my fabrics and helped me pair it all up and got it ready .... {I was working on birthday gifts and party dresses} She got the hardest part {to me} all done. She even sewed up half of the strips .. told me the rest was up to me.

So now Lodo has to decide what fabric she wants to use ... she just can't decide .. luckily she has a few months before I can get to her house .... because when I go it will be my turn to cut her fabric and help her pair hers up and get it started.

We said we wanted to do this together and we did and are!

I can hardly believe all that she did for me ... thank you Lodo ... YOU ARE THE BESTEST !!!

I will never be lonely again!

I will never be lonely again .... me lonely .. yes ... school is back in session and yes I have tons to do , but the house is quiet {even with the assistant here} I have not adjusted to my "time alone."

Normally I would crank up the the ipod and get to work, but even that doesn't seem to be enough these days.

I have been wanting for some time to add a TV for a little company to my crafty room ... ha!!! We another TV in the house like a hole in the head. SO last week I rearranged the crafty room and whole setup because I though we were getting new cable. {That's another story that has now ended after an 8 week wait on the cable company!!!}

So I was going to steal the TV and DVD Player out of the play room {that no one uses .. just stores all the toys!} Since the cable didn't pan out this a.m. I decided to go ahead and steal from the playroom anyhow .. DVD Player and all!!!

Now I am all set up with my stack of favorite movies to listen to and every so often peek at while working! {YEAH ME!}

Thanks Cinderella !

{Did I forget to mention that Patrick is in like half the movies in my stack?}

{I am sure Maddie will not be so happy once she realizes the move, but she hasn't watched the thing in weeks and now Mommy's "Hidey Hole" "is complete .... well would be if I could watch my soaps and sew at the same time!}

My Assistant

Meet my Assistant - Molly The Black Lab! She's not quite as cute as Julie's Assistant over at Joy's Hope, but she is amazingly cuddly and always agrees with whatever I have to say!

Yes, I said Black Lab - Maddie named her that! we watched her being born and the first words out of Maddie's mouth were "Look Momma, DC had a Black Lab!" Thanks to those sweet words of a then just turned 4 year old she instantly became ours! {Thanks Sally & Daddy}

Anyhow, Molly loves to sew or at least she thinks she does. Sometime I have to run her off to finish projects because she will come lay right in the middle of the sewing table or crawl up in my lap and want to stick her paws up at the running needles! She has even been known to crawl on top of the embroidery machine . {Who is named Daphne!}

Well, yesterday she was in full force ... but searching for a resting spot ... which ended up being inside the fabric cabinet ... even though Maddie had made her a little hidey hole under the table with her.

So what sort of silly things does your Asst. do for you?

Ahhhh! That's all I can say!

Look what I found from my little lady the other morning after she went to school. She left it on my "ORDERS" board in the sewing room.

What can I say? It makes my heart melt!!

I just wanna know if I can get away with wearing this to the next PTO Meeting at school?

I just stumbled upon this in an ETSY SHOP . The designs are think are killer - especially if you have this killer body to go with it - I don't - anymore!

I actually love this skirt and if I looked like that I JUST MIGHT try to pull it off and wear to the next meeting at school.

What do you think?

Sassy, huh?


Quilt Picture

I saw this over @ Joy's Hope after Julie finished her quilt.
{Which I am hoping to start soon} Anyhow, she has this adorable picture of her youngest on the quilt and then made this quilt style "picture frame"

So I tried it. I didn't use the awesome canvas like she did, but a cheaper option from Micheal's .. they had these bit foamy boards 2 for $3 .. so I thought I would try this and if I feel in love {which I have} I would go back for a large canvas and order the paper Julie had! {which I love}

So what do you think? The picture is not the best since I used my phone, but you get the picture.

First Day of 2nd Grade!

Happy first day of 2nd grade Maddie Paddie who looks like her Daddy!!! The fairies left her 2 pink flamingos in the front yard for her first day of school!

{silly fairies!}

As usual I drove her to school this morning to take a few pictures - of course!! What a crazy morning - mommies rushing to meet the bus to see their kiddos getting off and to take pictures!

{Secretly I go the 1st day to see all my friends too! Shh! I love seeing all the kiddies coming in as well and seeing how much they have all grown over the summer!}

Here she is getting down to business and wishing I would hurry up and leave!

{Yet she will pose for Courtney, but not me!!! Go figure!}

Finally home!

Here is Maddie's newest buddy { and neighbor} & little gal pal - Kayleigh! She just started
Prek 3 this year and they are 2 peas in a pod!

Happy first day girlies!!!
