Dogs VS Dinosaur

A few days ago I asked Drew's mommy if she could bring a few of Drew's toys from home for him to play with while he is with me.  When I first started babysitting him, I had purchased a bunch of toys for us to play with but he has become such a big boy I was afraid that he was becoming bored with those "baby" toys.  She brought us all kinds of fun toys---the Fisher Price farm, trucks, airplanes, and a very cool ride on dinosaur.  Not only does this dinosaur ZOOM across my hardwood floors,  but it also plays music while blinking lights dance to the music in strobe light fashion.  The dogs are terrified of it.  When he parked it outside of my bedroom door today before leaving for the night, he had no idea the dogs were inside sleeping on their bed.  When I heard sad crys for help coming from the room I went to investigate.  This is what I found.....
Instead of coming to their rescue right away like a good "doggie Mommy", I grabbed my camera and recorded their efforts to escape this ferocious beast.

After laughing to the point of tears, I finally decided to come to their aid and release the hounds.  They are resting comfortably now recovering  from their traumatic experience.

Whoever said that Golden Retrievers and Beagles are two of the smartest dogs never had the pleasure of meeting my three  silly dogs :)    I do however love them with my whole heart :)

My Favorite Things

Raindrops on roses
whiskers on kittens

Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens

Brown paper packages tied up with string
These are a few of my favorite things

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudel

and sleigh bells

Schnitzel with noodles

Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings
These are a few of my favorite things

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes

Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes

Silver white winters that melt into......

These are a few of my favorite things

When the dog bites
When the bee stings
When I'm feeling sad
I simply remember my favorite things
And then I don't feel so bad.

Quilts and Fabric---I am addicted

Hi my name is Mimi and I am addicted to fabric  :) There I said it out loud--I feel so much better now.  Yes it's true I think I have a problem.  I just can't help myself, I see a pretty piece and I just have to have some.  I used to tease my mom about all the fabric she had in her stash and now I think I may just have more than she does.  I purchased this lovely group before the holidays......
Just in case you have the same addiction as I do, I purchased it from a wonderful etsy shop called Sew Deerly Loved. The name of this fabric is Pam Kitty Morning, Lakehouse. You can also find it here at The Fat Quarter Shop --- some of that pretty yellow is on it's way to my door as I write this :)  I told you I think I may have a problem (hahaha)
I also wanted to share with you a fun new book that I discovered. It is called Sugar Sack Quilts and I hope to some day be able to create a quilt as amazing as the ones in this book. 

Speaking of amazing quilts--I saved the best for last.  I have shared in previous posts what a wonderful quilter my mom is.  She has created many beautiful quilts and I am delighted to say that  I was the lucky recipient of her latest creation.

Several months ago we purchased a piece of  fabric covered with reproduction handkerchiefs.  My mom cut them apart and incorporated them in this beautiful quilt for my bedroom.

 I am thrilled with the way it turned out.  I think I may need a major room redo worthy of this work of art.  But that will be a post for another day :)
Just for fun and giggles I thought I would share this photo and caption with you..
it seemed an appropriate way to end this post :)
