ORANGE SLICE

Here she is in all of her glory!!! Done...tadone...tadone!!

Why do I do this......it just took maybe an hour to do the binding....why didn't I just do it? I can never figure myself out.

So...after this was done, I went from one thing to another and didn't get a thing done.....gotta remember to turn that TV on....

Here is some potty humor....so I was in the bathroom......I hear

Mom!

Mom!

I just had to laugh to myself...how many times when the kids were little did we say...

Can't I just go to the bathroom...

If I could just go to the bathroom in peace....and you would look down and see these wiggly little fingers under the door.

So glad I didn't see some manly fingers under the door. CREEPY....

just brought back memories and a smile.

THIMBLEBERRIES SEW DAY TOMORROW...WON'T YOU JOIN US?

  2. Good name for the quilt Orange Slice. When my kids called mom, mom, I asked them to call me anything but mom, Jane, Sue, Felicia.

  3. Really awesome quilt, Barb. I love those orange fabrics, and the butterflies in the corners! And how funny that some things never change...your boys may be grown up, but they still want their mom! Thanks for the chuckle!

    XOXO,

  13. Love this quilt! Mom story - when my youngest group of siblings were about 3, 4 and 6 my mother one day declared "I am going to change my name and not tell you people what it is." I guess she had just heard "MOM!" one too many times that day!
