Happy August y'all!!!

It's just too stinking HOT!!
I've been busy cleaning, moving furniture, mopping floors, waxing hardwood floors. LOL I feel like Cinderella!! My back can attest to that!! Ice packs are my friend!! In my kitchen my island is the HOT spot ughhh drives me bonkers!! So for 8 days in a row it has been cleaned up!! I love it!!
I also been messing around with the quilting machine & did some feathers, need more practice! I'm learning how to baste around the edges too!
Don't know if you can really see the feathers? Don't mind the chalk lines, they were just a reference mark.

I also won a digital pressure cooker on Freecycle!! Wahoo!! They said it didn't work right. Went to the right pressure than stopped & went to the stay warm cycle. So I picked it up tonight & it's a Cuisinart!!!!!!!!!!!AWESOME!! It was kinda dirty ewwwwwww but don't want to really say anything bad, found out the person giving it away is a friend of my Mom's! So anyway I cleaned it up & had no trouble with it at all??? Sweet!! Check it out here!

Than I have been messing around on here & was having trouble, so I had to email trouble!! LOL Tonya saved my sanity!! Thank you Tonya!!

I have never seen an electric pressure cooker!

The quilting looks good.

Hey Tango....I think your feathers look great! And I love the fabrics on that quilt.

Congrats on the pressure cooker...isn't it always great to get something really useful for just a little $$ ?



Barb said...

Wow....love your quilting...

Doesn't it feel good to have a clean home? I mean really clean...

Cynthia said...

Love your fabrics! I just joined the freecycle here. Glad you got your pressure cooker- exciting.

Finally took the time to get caught up on your blog. Love the privacy fence thing. At my son's yard sale yesterday they were trying to sell a custom made piece of fence and a piece of that lattice, no one even looked at it, I said it would be great for the end of our porch to make it feel more private son said we are tired of having it in the garage, it is your free. I have never used a pressure cooker but here great things about them. I hope you enjoy yours. The feathering on the quilt looks so nice. Do you sell your quilts once you have them made?
