Tuesdays With Tag - I'm Not Amused...

Brynwood Needleworks - Taggart

Hi, Everybody!

You may be wonderin' why I'm standin' here in the garage today.
You really aren't gonna believe this. I mean...I sure didn't!

Brynwood Needleworks - No Retreat

Sunday, Dad helped Mom load up a bunch of her sewin' stuff into the back of my Explorer. Well, you know me. A car ride? Heck, yeah! I'm all about a car ride! Then, I realize that she hasn't told me to go get my collar.

She stands there tellin' me all about how much fun I'm gonna have with Dad and The Black Dog...for a few days!...while she goes away. I'm here to tell you, I was not amused!

I just knew that Bella Butt was gonna be all over me, and I'd be spendin' quality time out here in the garage watchin' for Mom to come back home. I'm glad Dad keeps the door up so I can see everythin' through the screen.

She's been gone TWO SLEEPS already! I think that's quite long enough, but Dad said she won't be back for one more sleep. Yeah. I'm not amused.

I'll see you again in seven! 'til then...

If You Want Me, I'll Be Playing...

Brynwood Needleworks - Selvage Block
We're here at the Kenilworth Lodge in Sebring, Florida!
Jamie and I arrived mid-afternoon yesterday, and many of the ladies were already set up and sewing. It's great catching up with old friends, meeting new ones, and then just chatting while we sew. 

For our first afternoon-into-evening session, I pulled out my ol' standby and starting making selvage blocks. I was so tickled to find a selvage from my dear friend, Michelle Palmer! I had to post this picture on FaceBook to be sure she saw it. I'll work on these again tomorrow for a bit, and then I have another project I'd really like to finish while I'm here, so I'll turn my attention to that.

My pineapple quilt went into a timeout late Sunday. Destiny went on strike and I spent more time "frogging" stitches (you know...rippit rippit) than actual sewing. I'll finish that quilt when I get back home. Until then, I shall play with my girlfriends! 

Tag has a few words to share tomorrow, so I'll show you lots of retreat pictures on Wednesday and show you what I worked on between now and then. 

Hope everyone has a great week!
