Versatility, I Have It.

Well, here goes June. Time flies when you're having fun. Our Saturday Sew Day was a blast as usual. We spend the entire day sewing, eating, and laughing. I finally put together some string blocks I made eons ago. I used a muslin foundation for the fabric strips so this baby is heavy duty. One of my guild friends suggested I use flannel instead of batting so it won't be so thick or heavy. Great idea!

I was craving quiche Monday morning. This one has ham, cheddar, and scallions. Yum.

Another guild buddy, Kathryn, who blogs at Tangerine Key nominated me for The Versatile Blogger award. Very cool! It's a great way to find fun blogs. Kind of like a blog pyramid scheme, but legal and fun.

Rules of the Award
  •  Thank the person who gave you this award.
  •  Include a link to their blog.
  •  Link to the award and list the rules.
  •  Next, select 15 blogs/bloggers that you’ve recently discovered or follow regularly.
  •  Nominate those 15 bloggers for the Versatile Blogger Award
  •  Finally, tell the person who nominated you 7 things about yourself.
Seven really random things about me:

1. I played the glockenspiel in junior high school marching band.
2. I am the opposite of a picky eater. I'll try anything once, and probably love it thereafter. It's a curse.
3. They're shooting a film in my neighborhood today.
4. My first car was a Pinto.
5. I always wanted triplets after watching My Three Sons.
6. Chocolate doesn't do anything for me. Salty stuff is another story.
7. I've been a snake magnet all my life.

As every dachshund owner knows, you must return their ears to their original factory settings at least once a day.


  1. You are definately a versatile blogger :) I love drooling over all the yummy food and quilts you make. One of these days I'm going to convince my guys that real men DO eat quiche ;-)Thanks for the shout out for my blog!!

  2. Haha...snake magnet! I wish my fam would eat quiche 'cause I would make it all of the time. Love your string blocks. I think they're my favorite block ever.

  3. Love the quilt (I want to make a string quilt someday) and that quiche looks so yummy! Gotta love dachshunds.

  4. Love the yellow light in this string quilt!

  5. Love those string blocks!!! Good idea to use the flannel instead of batting. Will be interested to hear how that works out.

  6. I knew about the "you love food" and "snakes love you" things, but the other factoids are new to me. Love your pup. Isn't it funny how they gravitate to quilts even the ones you are still working on when they decide to sit on them.

  7. I've been wanting a good quiche lately, too!! Too bad I will probably be too lazy to make one. But you never know...

  8. Love your string blocks! They look so happy.

    Love the puppy-dog too. Doxies have fun ears! I wonder what dogs that belong to people without quilts curl up on?

    The quiche looks quite yummy. It's been a while since I made one. It may be time!


I would love to hear from you. Comments make my day!
