Southern Louisiana.........is it hotter than normal? It feels like it. I can't wait for winter. I am sick of my summer clothes, I am tired of being hot. My flower garden needs weeding and there is no way I am going out there and suffer. It will just have to look bad. I think everyone up north should put one of those wind "things" that produce electricity in their yard. Point it towards Louisiana, we would be cool and you could blow our hurricanes (when we have them) back to the gulf. I think that is a great idea. The government would probably put it in your yard. Now, I know if you live in Arizona it is hot, but you don't have humidity. I'm through whining. I feel better.
Quilts tops are finished.............
|Eyelashes for a Lady|
This quilt was supposedly one of my quick quilts. I pulled this line of fabric plus a couple more pieces out of my stash. It really does have a pattern to it. The pattern is not based on the 4 patch squares but on the 4" block. I did them by color. If you set down with a piece of paper you could figure it out. This quilt took me longer because I was using 3 pieces of fabric with the same background color. It would have been easier if I had used four and I think it would have looked better. This is a Sharie scrappy since Sharie cannot do scrappy. I have not named this quilt top as yet. I need to give it some thought. By time, I get the back made, and I am ready to quilt it, I will have come up with something.
The Idiot's Corner...........
I try really hard to ignore what is going on in the world. But now and then, there is some idiot that comes up with a stupid idea that they want us all to abide by. A few days ago, I got up in the morning, read my email, went to my news page to see what was going on in the world. This hit me in the face. Seattle, wants to ban the words brown-bag and citizen because they are potentially offensive. I went to Komo News (in Seattle) on the net, found the article and proceeded to tell them what I thought of the idiot who came up with the idea. Of course he was in the Civil Rights Division, which means he does not have common sense. I also sent the same emails to Mr. Bronstein of the Civil Rights Division. Mr. Bronstein did write me back with a huge excuse trying to cover his butt. That really ticked me off. Can you imagine going to jail or being sued for saying the words brown-bag or citizen. All this guy is trying to do, not make this a better country, but gain power for himself.
Hope you all have a cooler day than I have. Hope all is well.
