No slow stitching this Sunday. Got a little in earlier in the week on Block 12 of Words to Live By.....
Linking up with Kathy

Most of this week has been devoted to studying for our midterm on Tuesday. I am overwhelmed.
Handbook would be a misnomer. This baby is 684 pages!!

My 2 1/2" strip bin is overflowing.
I think that it is calling for a simple project to make a dent in it. Like Bonnie Hunter's Scrappy Trip Around the World. Here are my first two blocks.....easy peasy, just what I need.

 I want to have a black constant running through it. I don't know that the black polka dot strip is going to work. We'll is early yet.

Just look at this beautiful egg....fresh from the chicken. Yummy, too.

We have both....

Back to the books. 
 Take care,


  1. I'm not sure this old brain could study that "handbook". Good for you. I'm sure you'll pass with flying colors.
    I grew up on farm eggs. I don't care much for eating eggs, but when you break in to a farm egg there is no comparison to a store egg.
    You post the best furbaby stuff.
    Hugs :)

  2. Scrappy trips is such a good way to use those 2 1/2" strips! Good luck on your exam!

  3. Wow, you're going to add 'master gardner' to your list of credits too? Good grief woman but you are an over achiever! My boy Ben shows his vulnerability by laying on his back. He knows it gets a response by me and he knows exactly how to pull my strings. He looks so sweet when he does that.

  4. Love the scrappy trips blocks. Best of luck with your Master Gardener exam!

  5. I can't tell if my comment came through or not....

    I love your applique in the first photo. And I hope you have great success with your upcoming exam.

  6. Master Gardener programs are great and so worth the time and effort. Breathe through the stress you will make it
