Happy and sad



Happy:
Making progress on new quilts

Happy:
Finding a chandelier for my soon-to-be-updated laundry room...on sale at Lowe's for under 18 bucks (yes, I may be painting it).



Sad:
Having to have youngest son's car towed after the engine threw a rod (while Mom was driving it).



Even sadder:
This happened exactly 123 miles after we dropped $1500 on other repairs.

Happy:
Having friends in my studio. (If you've ever seen a mature male guinea pig, you'll thank me for cropping the photo where I did...)



Have a great week, everybody!

Love your quilt in progress! and that chandelier!!! (I originally tried to have a cute laundry room, however, the dirtbike riding dudes here have since turned it into the garage annex ... so I know if I would EVER dare to hang up such a cute light fixture, it would more than likely be used to hang dirtbike riding gear on to dry....yep, Martha Stewart has nothing on us!)
.... oh, and what a royal pain in the ____ with the car repair/breakdown stuff!

What, you don't neuter guinea pigs? They are so cute all snuggled up together! Is this normal? Are guinea pigs usually so snuggly with cats?

What a bummer about the car.

I want to make the Dolly Dress quilt....I used to make "dark" color quilts....now I want to make "light", pinks & greens. I also am passionate about applique. I relate to the loss of Willard...I've had 4 dachshunds, now have 2....the loves of our lives! I can hardly wait to read all the fun posts, etc. on your blog. Thanks for the inspiration!
