At Sharie's House

There really is not much going on at Sharie's house.............unless you want to count the road trip the "Quilting Chicks" and I went on this past Saturday.  We went to Kinder, LA, stopped at a quilters house, left off several quilts and then went on to Oberlin, LA where we visited a new shop in town.  I could not pass up the batiks.  I could have bought many more but you know that pocket book thing, and then of course I do have a few in the house.  Look at that kitty cat fabric.  It is so cute, it has shiny "stuff" on it.  I bought that for a friend who could not go on our trip.  She loooves kitty cats.  There is a panel in there.  I bought that because I have a lot of fabric in that line.  I thought I would use the panel on the back of the quilt (when I make it).  The others are just things I wanted and the last piece with all the stripes is gorgeous.  It will make a lovely binding.  I bought enough so I could sprinkle it through a quilt and then bind it to match.  So much fabric, so many ideas and not enough time.  I wish I could do something about all the time I waste sleeping.  I cannot seem to get away from sleeping. 

These "Bottle Brush" bushes are in my back yard.  I have never seen them so loaded with flowers.  All the flowers this year seem to be in abundance.  We have been in summer now for at least a couple of weeks.  It is 72 degrees and it is 8:30 in the morning.  It is lovely weather but it is a sign that we are going to have a loooong hot summer.  Everything is very green.  You can see from the picture my yard needs to be mowed.  I had it mowed on 29 Feb, and I took this picture a couple of days ago, so it is less then three weeks since it was mowed.  Everything is growing like a weed.  I hate the thoughts of summer, I really would like to have a long winter, but I think that is unheard of in the deep south.  Although I have seen winter last a little longer than this one has. 

Tomorrow, we have 100% chance of rain and 90% chance on Wednesday.  Guess what I am going to

Hope all is well on your end...........
