Guild Night...

Pauline's Scrappy Quilt
 Last night was our monthly guild meeting, and I took lots of photos.
I'm going to share my favorites today, but you'll see more creations later.
 Our member, Jettie, has a friend who pieces her quilts up north and
sends them south to be quilted by Susan Slaton. This is one of the 
two shared by Jettie last night before she ships them back to her
northern friend. I really liked the blocks and the color play on this one.
 This was the other one Jettie showed for her friend. The circles
are hand appliqued'. You know I love this one, don't you? I might
have to file this idea away to make one for myself. So much fun!
 Marti showed the result of a recent art quilt class she took.
It's a wonderful little piece, and I really hope she'll make more
like this one. I think she's found her niche. I love the colors, too.

I don't know if I've said this before or not, but I really enjoy being
a member of our Disconnected Piecers Quilt Guild. Our members
are so talented, and we really become friends. They're a great group
of beautiful women. As I said, I took lots of pictures. Every quilt was
a work of love by its creator. These are just a very few. More later.

I hope your day is filled with happy moments and creative endeavors.
Thanks for visiting. I'll be back tomorrow.

Tuesdays With Tag - Doin' The Corgi Sprawl...

Hi, Everybody!
Hope you don't mind too much if I don't get up today.
I went with Mom to her class yesterday and I'm still exhausted.
 I situated myself near the door just in case I have to greet guests, but if no
 one rings, I'm gonna stay right here and rest in my own, signature Corgi style.
Mom and Dad laugh whenever they see me like this...doin' the "Corgi Sprawl".
Really. I bet you've never seen anythin' quite as cute as Corgi butt!
Don't let it fool you though. I can be on my feet, wide awake at the
drop of a cracker crumb! These good-lookin' ears ain't just decoration!
Guess I'm like "Business up front. Party in the back." snort!!
 So, that's it for this week. We've come to the end of my post.
Get it? "The End"!
'til next week...
"Wag Like Ya Mean It!"

Peter Rabbit's Portable Veggie Farm...

 Tag and I have told you before about our vegetable projects here. When
I prepare a salad, I always save the root end of lettuce (usually Romaine)
and celery bunches. Then, I take those ends and place them in fresh water.

This is my current crop of vegetables. Most of them are lettuce, but the 
largest (in back) and the one directly to the right of it are celery plants. The
newest one is from two nights ago (lower left) and it's already sprouting!
 Most of them have roots sprouted, so my next step is to plant them into soil so 
they can get even bigger. Even the newest addition will be ready to plant by 
next weekend. I also have sweet onion cuttings that have sprouted and are 
going to be planted, too. I'm using an idea I saw on FaceBook this time.

I'm going to cut one side off our milk cartons and fill them with soil. By 
using the flat-sided "planters", they'll nest better and will be disposable
when I'm finished using them. This is recycling at its best. Not only am
I repurposing the cartons, but I'm also growing a second harvest from 
what would otherwise be tossed in the recycling or become compost.
Peter Rabbit would be one happy critter around here!
Salad, anyone?
