No not for dinner, I do not like sea food period. I can not get past the smell of it.
I did sew this Octopus for our new grand daughter to arrive very soon. Like March 7th.
The pattern is on  named Oopsie the Octopus.
I chose not to put any eyes or yoyos on it ,for the baby's saftey. I am figuring she will be chewing on the legs of this for teething soon enough. It was so much fun and I am very pleased with it as a plain octopus.

Been MIA

Hi All been a few busy weeks for me. Not getting a lot done.So had not come on line to post. I did do a  couple blog tours. I must say that is my last of them . I am going to spend my time on line  wiser. LOL  I know there is only a winner from a few hundred. But it just seems like they are in the clicks like old high school days. Not to offend any one. I just feel like  you have to be in their group in order to be drawn. Kind like paying the neighbor kid to like you  don't you think? I am straight forward with people I meet and treat them the same.Good luck to all the blog hoppers and their tours happy days ahead for me.
I am just done with BLOG tours and try to win a gift.
So on to more fun things  I did manage to get a wall hanging sewn so cute I have not worked in my homespun in some time. Felt good to play in them. I want to make a new quilt for a guest bed. the one that is on  it is wearing out. So I want to remake one just like it only maybe a few different fabrics. It is called Country Seams quilt. I will post a picture of the oneI have made . I think it is still on my web shots pages.
Everyone has loved it. Very primitive looking.
I had a birthday yesterday and I was given a new pair of diamond ear rings from my hubby.They go nicely with the necklace he gave to me a few years back. My daughter and her kids came over baked a cake for me and we celebrated with food and the great cake she baked here for me. They gave me nice and meaningful cards with tender words of love in it. they each signed it for me.Daughter gave a couple lottery tickets. I won 10 dollars on them.  We are getting a some snow  and colder temps tonight. I will see what I can do tomorrow in my sewing area.  So for now I have rambled on long enough. Thanks for coming by today and listening to me sound off.  Tomorrow I will find the picture of the quilt and post it so you can what I talking about.,tis a super  quilt  I really like.

sewing and hoping to get it assembled.

I Have been working on a quilt top called Summer Porch by "Quilt In A Day" company. I have all the blocks sewn and need to get them in the correct position. You know so they are not too heavy on one side or the other, color balance. My two strongest colors in this is the salmon and the browns. So placement will make or brake it. Here is the blocks not in correct order  just pinned on the wall to decide what to do and where to move them. I do like the quilt. Tomorrow is a sew day for me. woohoo!!! I have some of the sashing strips attached and will add them completely around each triangle and then there is a nice rectangle border with the same sashing  it is a very pretty quilt.
 Okay any suggestions I will take seriously and get this done  I hope tomorrow.  Thanks have a great night  Patty
