Lili Collins is a follower who loves movies. How do I know? I've seen her Pinterest boards. My surprise! Of her 45-50 boards, all but about five are of particular movies. You really should see this. I spent too much time (of course) on her movie boards. Then I found this! - 1890 Victorian: Queen Anne - Historical Home in East Central Alabama in Roanoke, Alabama:

This looks like the perfect place to start my cat collection. More trees is all that is needed. The windows are so beautiful, and that door. Wow.: Beautiful house in Norway:

Victorian and stone, great combo!:

omg i was looking at this picture when the little daughter (5 years old) of my parents' friends sitting next to me asked "where is the other guy? he should be sitting next to her, shouldn't he? why isn't he there?" i didn't know what to answer x.x: Good friends are so precious and so important. Thanks, Alainna. I can't imagine life without you either.:

Sunday Quilt Inspiration: G R E E N

I spent most of today working on a green baby quilt. 

It's been one of the easiest quilts I've ever worked on. I started with scraps a few days ago and have finished the quilting. Only binding and label left to go. Since I have so much green in my head, I thought I may as well go with it.

Notice how the moss takes on a yellow hue...always brushing off on everything.: A good reason to eat kiwi: KIWI fruit helps your digestions with enzymes, it contains actinidain, a protein-dissolving enzyme that can help digest a meal much like the papain in papaya or bromelain in pineapple. (Photo from P.S.- I made this...):

From full to finished...almost!

I've spent the last two days cutting scraps into strips and sewing those strips into wide strips.

And then what did I do? Cut the wide strips into blocks, of course. I've been meaning to make a strip quilt using scraps, which (let's face it) I have plenty of. Out came the green scrap bucket and I cut strips of 2½", 2", and 1½". 

This is what the green bucket looks like now. I forgot to take a before picture, but the yellow bucket is a good example of what it looked like.

 I tossed a few of those yellow scraps into the quilt, and the quilt found it's name:

X's and O's.

And a project is well on its way to the longarm. Hopefully they will begin their visit tomorrow.
