This early morning I had the wonderful opportunity to join Chookyblue and other like minded quilters for a Zoom Sewing Gathering. Given that I finish work on Fridays at Midnight, it was the perfect time to log on and get to know some wonderful quilters.
I poured myself a drink .... It's 5 O'clock somewhere ... and joined the gathering!
I had an early coffee date with friends in the morning ... So I stayed till 2 am .... I probably should have stayed later, as I was to wired to fall asleep. lol
Thank you Donna for allowing to join. I enjoyed chatting with everyone.
Thanks for stopping! Catch you all later! Cheers!

I love my blog. However, with the recent and not so recent up dates with Google/Blogger, I noticed that I had lost all the videos/slide shows I had created with Picasa. If you clicked on the post, you had no record of the photographs ... blank
Luckily, I was able to link my Picasa account with Google and retrieve all the photographs. I then begin creating slide shows using iPhoto. Love my Mac.
What a production this has been; viewing blogging posts from December 2011 backwards. I think I have corrected everything. This has taken me the better part of a full day, but at least it is all there ... new slide shows.
These fixes were definitely a trip down memory lane ... I'll be honest, I cried at some of the posts and others, I relish in the experience.
Glad my blog is now back in order. Not that I expect people to read my blog for day one ... that would be January 18, 2007 ... Lots has happened since then.
On another note, I did receive my Wool Box from Primitive Gatherings.
Off to think about what I want to work on next. Catch you all later.

After I finished the little Hexe quilt, I remembered another quilt that needed my attention. This English Paper Piecing quilt was started back in the Spring of 2013. The pattern is from the Primitive Quilt magazine, Spring 2013 issue. I did blogged about it here. I used 1/2 inch hexes and 1900 century reproduction fabrics.

I'm an all season gal. Every seasons has its perk ...
Summer ... I love all the fresh vegetables. Sadly, at this point in time in my life, I do not have space for a vegetable garden ... but I can certainly enjoy the bounty of others.
I love zucchini ... and yellow squash .... They makes such a wonderful refreshing dish. This is one of my favourite dish .....
What you will need ...
1 yellow squash
Olive oil (high quality)
Fresh garlic (you can use powder)
thyme (fresh or dried)
salt to taste
Added at the end - while in a serving dish:
Fresh lemon juice (you do not want to cook your lemon juice)
Parmesan cheese (optional)
Fresh ground pepper
Sauté the vegetable with all of the ingredients except the sun dried tomatoes. I like to add them towards the end of my desired cooking time. I like my vegetable crisp. Plate your creation and squeeze the lemon ... add the cheese.
This was my lunch today ... so yummy
I added some pine nuts for protein. You can add cooked pasta to the dish. It is so light and a wonderful summer dish.
How are you enjoying the summer bounty? I cannot wait to have my own garden ... soon I am hoping!
Catch you all later!

The box has been sitting there ... Not sure why I hadn't built it yet. Perhaps I was waiting for a special someone to help me.
Last weekend Pumpkin came up for a visit with Goofball. We had plans on Sunday to go on a hike, but with the temperature in the high 90F (31C) and high humidity, we changed our plans and Pumpkin said ... Why not build the Saturn V rocket?
Perfect idea .... We got busy setting things up.
There's Goofball enjoying our collective effort.
Voila ... Stage 1 of the Saturn V rocket is built.
BTW, next to the Saturn V is a lovely embroidery that my friend, Sewing Ninja, stitched for me as a gift.
I'm so impressed with this Lego model. It is built solid ...
Because we ran out of time ... the other stages will be built on their next visit.
Thanks for stopping by my little corner in cyberspace. Catch you all later!
