The Rag Quilt no. 1

 yup. I got the quilting buzz! (Like I need another reason for my sister to think I'm a grandma). Anywho, this little number is what I've been working on for a while now, and I am pretty happy with the result. It's for my little brother, which means that I now need to mak one for my little sister (unless we want WWIII). I'll probably keep it until I've got both and can gift them at the same time... (the little brother is still oblivious to the fact that the quilt his sister has been working on for a while actually belongs to him hehehe. devious)

If you want to make a rag quilt, I might do a tutorial when I do the little sister's. Or you could just google it.... I guess..

Why am I doing this

Currently watching 'Secrets in the Walls' on Lifetime. So far, it's a classic horror story (did I mention I can't handle these?). the family (mom, two girls) move into the perfect old house. Oh wait. It's haunted by some girl. And only the young sister can see her. As of yet, we've seen the mystery girl show up in mirrors behind the family members, appear in windows, oh yes. And standing over the older sister as she sleeps.
I can't do this.
Breath Libby, you can do this.
... ignore my inner thoughts telling me to run away from the tv. I apparently sure am.

AAAAAAnnyyyyywwaaayyyssss. I will now ramble on about happy things while I wonder why we have a tv in the first place.

Quilt wise, I actually managed to keep my fingers throughout the entire fringe cutting process! Dad took me to a Laundromat to wash my little rag quilt. None of my friends seemed as excited as I was at this little adventure... anywho, the fringing looks fantastic! it's currently getting it's second wash, so I'll have to show you guys later...

Oh gosh, it's back on. Ok. Ok. what else is happy???

Hmm. Did I mention the Phineas and Ferb folders? I use them to hold loose-leaf paper. One of my favorite things to do is, when someone asks me for paper, I say "Let me introduce you to my friends" *pulls out folder* "Phineas and Ferb"

Oh merciful heavens. The music box is playing. Don't go in the basement. Oh why OH WHY am I watching this?!

Ummm.. did I mention I enjoy writing? Oh yes, I currently keep my cheap notebook and trusty blue pen with me everywhere. When I'm stuck at Godby? Write. When I'm in the car? Write. When I should be paying attention in class? Write. Currently, I really like writing fanfiction. (*cough* of the Phineas and Ferb vairety *cough* canyoubelieveiminhighschool?) So, my dear Fanfictioners, please don't fret. I know I haven't published in a while. But Oh boy, am I writing. I have got pages upon pages of just ideas, and I am trying to make myself type up the drafts of what I'm working on now.

Ok. I can do this. Bloggers, wish me luck.

last day of summer

The last day of summer is bacon ice cream with your cousins.

In all seriousness people, this stuff is amazing. 

*anywho,randomupdatetime: sorry. I'll say that now. I know I'm like the world's worst blogger ever. I'll accept the award now. I don't post much. But, please, be gentle with me. I try. School is starting tomorrow, I'm still cutting fringe for Mike's quilt, and I just got back from a family reunion (which will get it's own post soon, don't worry). So, here goes. I will try to post more, and you try not to shun me from blogworld. Deal? ...Please?

Like I mentioned a few posts ago, I am working on a rag quilt. aka, fringe. Lots of fringe. I'm basically halfway done with cutting the fringe (ok, so maybe not even halfway... but don't make me admit that), and i think my fingers are going to get stuck. Scissors were not ment to be used excessively. When my fingers fall off, will someone donate them to science for me? I'm sure someone could use a right thumb and index finger...

I hope my brother likes this quilt.

 It's late summer. School is looming closer, and don't even get me started on this heat. But, there is a serious upside. Blueberries.

Which means...

Blueberry pancakes!!

And of course, my not so famous blueberry pie!

and let me tell you. if there is one thing I like more than warm blueberry pie, it's cold blueberry pie. seriously, I don't know why people haven't caught on yet.

it's all in the cape

I find power quilting to be easier when one wears a quilt as a cape. Just call me the Super Stitcher! I think I need a theme song... anyone?

treasure hunting... again

I went treasure hunting again today.... these roses will be the death of me, I tell you

 daisys are cool too. so are birdsnests.

 And Charlie decided to butt in again. ...but, with that nose, he probably didn't have a choice. *ba dum chsh*
(I couldn't help myself. sorry.)
