My What A Productive Day!

Well, I wasn't expecting it, but the sun came out I got busy, and had a photo-shoot of my 2 latest patterns.  The forecast said cloudy until Wednesday, so I wasn't prepared, lol!!!  But I got 'em.

Both are older patterns that I've re-made.  First up is Lemon Tree....

Now Jenny and I can be twins - she has the original!  I love this pattern and want to make it in pinks next time, so I can have Pink Lemonade, lol!  The pattern for this includes a complete layout diagram.  It measures 17" x 19 1/2".

Then, as the sun was still cooperating, I got pics of my completed Portholes!

I LOVE them in the hoops!  Not sure why I didn't think of that the first two times I made them...  And of course the crayons just add the perfect touch.  All instructions are included - these measure 7"!

Both are available in my shop, Allie-Oops Designs.

I had quite a scare late Friday night.  My precious kitty, Hermione, started shaking, twisting her back end, it was pitiful - she had a stroke.

She came out of it ok, and I stayed up almost all night, keeping an eye on her and cuddling her.  Normally, she follows me upstairs at bedtime, that night she did not.  She stayed downstairs on her quilt all night.
Saturday she slept most of the day, and seemed a little confused, but she did come upstairs that night and now she seems fine!  I guess she still has 8 lives left...she's back to playing, eating, and all the rest.

I may never recover, lol, but she seems ok....babies and animals, I hate when they're sick, they can't tell you where it hurts!

I think I'll go relax, as I sit here mum is in her chair sleeping, making me sleepy too....have a great week ahead, everyone!

I Found Spring!!

It may be cold but it's warm in my sewing room - and happy now, lol!  I finished my Tiptoe Through The Tulips!

You may remember I was torn between a red or black border - well, Vicki Knight and Julie suggested on facebook that I use a green one.  I hadn't even considered that!!!   When I auditioned it, it knocked my socks off.  Thank you Vicki and Julie!!!

I've uploaded to craftsy and you can get the instant download here:

What else - we had those high winds yesterday, a million people here lost power, and some won't get it back til Sunday.  We lost our internet for awhile, but thankfully the lights stayed on!  Our neigbor's very large tree came down, JUST missing their house.  They brought in the large equipment and the tree is back upright, with lots of ropes!

I got bored the other day and cut my hair off.  It kept getting stitched into my quilting, and finally I'd had enough.  For some reason, I always forget I have curly hair, so a shoulder-length cut will end up at chin level.  Lesson learned every time, and clean forgotten as well.

I think that's all the news from here.....not a whole lot going on, just waiting [and waiting and waiting] for warm weather.  Oh - one thing I wanted to tell you - you may notice a new picture on my sidebar - 

the Christmas Caroling Row Along!!!  Just like the Road Home Row Along, Marian is putting together this one, and I can't wait.  Lots of give-aways, and free patterns that you can make for Christmas!!!  I'm still deciding on which Christmas carol I'll be depicting, but if you click on the link, you can see several gals have already picked theirs.  This will be SO FUN!!!  I hope you join us!

That's it from me this week, my next goal I've set for myself is to finish my Lemon Tree.  I was hand quilting it, but honestly, hand quilting doesn't love me anymore - my hands are too bad.  I'm going to pull out the small bit of stitching already in it, and take it to the machine.  Can't wait to get it done, it's summery too, and I need that, lol!!!!

See ya soon!
