Poinsettia

This is the first of three applique blocks. I'm afraid I didn't quite get the leaves laid out as I would have wished. They're not as random as the original.

I am using light backgrounds for these blocks since the setting squares will all be the tan colors. Kinda nice that my design wall is tan.

Christmas Star

Everyone seems to agree that this block is called Christmas Star.

I have been replacing the tan fabric from the original design with golds. Brightens the whole project up immensely.

This makes block number 7 and I have the applique bits cut out for block number 8.

Yard Sale #1

Last weekend I headed up to Memphis to help out with my sister's yard sale. Her neighborhood was doing a Yard Sale Day and she ended up being the coordinator.

The Commercial Appeal even did an article for Sunday's paper. The photo with the article was taken at the sale next door.

Her next door neighbor and her family set up, too. They had a good time and her sister bought an antique bed from us.

I brought back seven boxes of leftover stuff. My neighborhood is having a yard sale day July 10. We still have this cool bowl. If you're interested, make me an offer!

We were exhausted Saturday night, but found the energy to grill some steaks and eat outside. It was a nice evening and Daddy said the best part was eating with his girls. Awwww.

Leslye bought a bubble gun to entertain her dog Lola.

Did you know they make chicken-flavored bubbles?

How cool is this?! This compound bubble looks like fireworks!
