Champagne Glass Lamp

I will be so happy when Mr. G's phone contract is up
so he can get another phone with a much better camera.
The lens broke. 
He had it replaced.
They put in a dull lens, we took it back to clean it.
They said they did and that was the best that could be done.
So, he's been taking blurred pictures over a year now.
When he goes Thrift Shop hopping by himself, he takes pictures of ideas to bring back to me.
Sometimes I want to post them to share the idea.
I was able to use PhotoScape so you could see these fairly well.
Just a couple more months and he can bring me back better pictures 
for cute ideas like this one. 
I think the wreath is cute too.

Doodling Instead of Adult Coloring

I started doodling when I was researching quilting designs.  
Not piecing designs, but the quilting stitches you use to put the 3 layers of fabric together.
I quickly found out a lot of quilters, especially free motion quilters, do a lot of doodling.
So as usual, I go online to do some research.
There were a ton of videos on You-Tube.
Some used special squares of paper and expensive pens which I'm sure add to the enjoyment.
I found a pad of square paper and a pack of 3 pens at IKEA, of all places, that worked very well.
You might find me late at night, when I can't sleep and can find nothing on TV .........doodling.








Thanks to Nancy for reminding me I hadn't posted these yet. 
 She's done some wonderful coloring jobs on pieces in an adult coloring book she got.
She has a knack for using great colors together.
 Right now I'm not interested in coloring. Maybe later.
 Still looking for quilting designs.

 I did use one design when making the Paradox Pillow.

Quilt Shot Block #58 ~ Woven Friendship Star

Woven Friendship Star

          About 3 weeks ago I signed up to participate in National Sewing Day for Quilts of Valor for February 6, 2016.  After I registered, I started researching quilt patterns.  First I looked through my collection on this blog.  I knew I wanted to use a star pattern. 
              Looking at the pattern I named "Joy's Star" that used only 2 fabrics, I designed a block that looked woven when placed together in a quilt. After further research on the internet, I found out that design was already called "Woven Friendship Star."
  Then I went on a Quilt Shop Hop in Florida and collected some fabrics.
 
I used this technique to make half square triangles.
Used my new rotary cutter Mr. G got me at the Quilting in Paradise Quilt Show in Port St. Lucie, Fl yesterday.
One ten inch square makes 8 half square triangles.
          I did put in about 4 hours on this quilt today.  Time had to be spent in setting up my "sewing room" again as I am working on this away from home.  Fabric for 8 twelve inch blocks were cut, sewn and cut into half square triangles.  By 10 pm I had 1 block completed.
          Everything is ready for me to get right back to work on rainy days when I'm not on the beach or taking a road trip with Mr. G.

Fun or Funny Fri Foto ~ Bet You've Eaten Here

@ Charles City, Iowa
           G and I have always teased each other that we should open a restaurant with this name, because it would definitely be the most named place to go to eat.  How many times, especially in a couple or group has someone asked you, "Where would you like to eat?" and your answer would be ________?
