How many of you remember Minnie Pearl and how she would say, "Howwwdddyyyy" all drawn out and high pitched? Well, that is the kind of howdy I am bringing to you today. I am in a super mood and I just felt like bringing you a big ol' Howdy!! I have many friends that have no clue who Minnie Pearl is...I'll try to find a video for you to post at the bottom.
Many of you know Sharon of Vroomans Quilts. She is always talking about S'mores. Now that is simply not fair to a non-sugar non sweet household. I love S'mores, and I cannot think of the last time that I've eaten them. So she and have been kicking around an idea. (Really, I have ulterior motives though. I just want an excuse to eat S'mores. Shhh, don't tell Sharon!) Anyway, it is time to share that idea with you. We are going to host a day called
What is it? Well, on July 23rd, we want you to cook up some of your favorite campfire recipes, and relax and enjoy the day working on your favorite take along craft. We, of course, would love for you to share your favorite campfire recipes and your craft with us! We will have a Mr. Linky ready.
Here is the best part. You don't have to leave your house. You don't have to pack the bug spray. You don't even have to start a campfire if you don't want. Please make plans to sit around the campfire with Sharon and I on July 23rd! (by the way...I WILL be eating S'mores that day. mmmm)
I am seeing diamonds. Everywhere. I have 288 English paper pieced diamonds finished. Now I am working on sewing them together. I cannot wait to show you. But, sigh, I guess we all shall be waiting a bit, because I don't want to share until I am finished.
I am sharing some other English Paper Piecing pointers this week; as I know several of you are waiting for them.
This video is only 8 seconds but it will still make you smile.
