I’m not a proverbs 31 woman


This week’s Women of the bible BOW was Proverbs 31 woman

Yeah right…. I’m not like her…

But I CAN relate to this

Pro 31:22
”She makes coverings for her bed”

If you are a quilter- you can too!! Smile

and it was only the last mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter where I used the quilt for OUR bed…. oh we got a nice bed frame this week too, a BARGAIN from craigslist!! woohoo

I picked some bright and cheery colors for this block and used the main laundry fabric in the middle – after all that’s part of our “jobs” too right??

I guess you can think of the bird fabric as chicken/ cooking too! didn’t think about that until now….

You know I love blues…… And if the color yellow is from sun-up to the blue sun-down then there you go…. you’ll have green in the middle, green money?? or am I reading into it too much? I really just picked the fabrics because they were NEXT in my pile and I liked the combinations Smile

shh!! don’t tell!!

Last week I saw these CUTE tissue holders on a blog (sorry forgot which one now- she sent me a link back to where to buy the pattern, my mom and her husband LOVE hawaiian shirts AND they love cats and Native Indian/western stuff, so I made these for them and will send out soon)

I finished quilting the scrappy trip around the world quilt AND I’m attaching a binding that’s scrappy too, plus the backing is sort of scrappy.

I thought thought the quilt’s name should be “scrappy to the power of 6”

-6 strips in each block sub-cut into 6 sections-

what do you think?

and pure bliss, sleeping baby in my arms Smile

Sonja is 10 months today!!

How old do you think I AM btw?? I won’t get offended- I’ve had LOTS of guesses….If you know ME and have followed my blog for a while I might have given the answer at my last birthday, but you’ll have to search for that!

Our Squash in the garden is growing like crazy too!! we had a few days of rain and these things grew a lot! last night we had a FLUKE 15 min heavy rain and thunderstorm some of the plants don’t look too good now, so I’ll make dinner tonight with squash for sure!

Maybe everything in the Bibile block can't have meaning. : )
Cute little tissue holders.
Love the scrappy trips.
I do not attempt to guess ages. But I'll tell you, my oldest daughter, in her 30s, has been mistaken for a teenager on more than one occasion.
