It’s a lazy Sunday afternoon here. DH is tired of working on taxes ((I am so grateful for an accountant DH who takes are of all this stuff!)) and we are headed out to go see “This Means War” which looks really funny.
We’ve seen the preview a couple of times and it’s out now – so we are going! Bring on the popcorn! Oh, and I love my coke zero with 3/4 coke zero, and just top the last 1/4 off with some cherry coke please – YUM!
I finished the sampler blocks from over at Randy’s Blog. I’m all caught up! Here is a shot of my messy sort of design wall. It’s a very small area, and I know I’ll outgrow it but they look really fun up there!
I was asked where my love of cheddar and orange came from. I honestly don’t know. My love of Pennsylvania Dutch quilts from around 1870 started in the early 1990s ((Isn’t it terrible when someone says “the 90s” and you think it’s only 10 years ago or so?!)) It was my affirmation that yes, I could put orange next to pink, next to red and poison green and throw in some Prussian blue and chrome yellow and all would be well! And “true” cheddar to me was always shown best as a solid, not a print ---so I keep those in two different categories, one is cheddar, the other is NOT in my book ;c)
It’s definitely BOLD! and BRIGHT! And – yeah, very CHEDDAR!
As to the freebie book….This one looks really good:
