Spreading the word

There's not much new in my world. 

My hens left us TWO eggs yesterday, instead of just one.  Jason yelled so loudly, I thought something was wrong.  He was just excited.

My beans are flowering. (what can I make with eggs and green beans???)

I'm still plodding away at the baby quilt for the shower tomorrow.  Yes, I said TOMORROW.  I have just 3 pinwheels left to quilt, and then the binding to put on.  It isn't much, but I feel safe saying I'll be up late tonight.

Rosabelle has had the Hershey Squirts two nights running, so I took her and Biscuit to the vet today for checkups.  She has some kind of infection or something.  Oh joy!  I get to feed her antibiotics for a week.  As long as I am not scrubbing floors all week...

Blah, nothing exciting to share.  Let me share the news of others! 

First of all, Bonnie Hunter is taking pre-orders for her next book, String Fling: Scrappy, Happy and Loving It.  Yeah, I already ordered it!

And there is a 12-year-old with a quilt in the weekly quilt contest at the Quilting Gallery this week - she made the quilt when she was 9 years old.  I had to vote for her - I think young quilters need all the support they can get!  I don't know who she is, but I hope she wins.  At the time of my writing, she is just 8 votes outside of the lead.  C'mon guys, let's make her a winner!  Her quilt is called Garden of Posies.


That's all for me.  Enjoy the weekend, y'all!

I already voted for the young lady early this morning. Make deviled eggs and green bean casserole. There is half your cookout food done.

She sure gets my vote over designers selling patterns and fuzed-machine made stuff.

Went and gave her a vote...good on her...I agree with Julie...
What about green beans with hollandaise sauce (or is that just me because I love hollandaise sauce!)...and as the sauce only uses the egg yolks, a pavlova (meringue) for dessert from the egg white...OK so not really a busy family easy cook menu going on in my head there...

What an accomplished young lady . I moseyed on over and gave her a vote.

It's never fun when you have to clean up messes like that. Stuffing antibiotics down the dogs gullet sounds far preferable.

Thanks for the heads up on Bonnie's new book...I love her stuff! She is so generous with her patterns and she is the reason I have a hundred pounds of vintage plaid shirts in my quilt closet!! LOL....When I grow up I'd like to be her....
