It's a HAPPY Friday


I am so relieved right now. Yesterday I went to the dreaded dentist. No cavities!!! But today I had to go to the Periodontist because I had an issue with part of one of my gums. I was so scared of what it might be. Well....when I was younger I wore braces and they made my tooth move right through the bone. So the area that bothers me is where my root is not in bone and only protected by thin gum tissue. NO PROBLEM. The guy I saw today was so nice and said I had good teeth and nothing was wrong but I can go back for a gum graph to thicken that area that bothers me...no thanks. I was so happy I went straight to my quilt store to shop. I got this sweet fabric to make Madi something to wear for Christmas. I love this sewing stuff. Even though it's expensive Moda fabric I can make Madi an adorable skirt for $7 or less.






Last month while in Ohio I fell in love with this ABC fabric and brought some home with me. I made this little back to school quilt and let the kids right on it too. I LOVE it.



Here are some birthday gifts we gave away. I wanted to share my monogram idea and the Army looking one. All the kids friends know there dad is in Iraq so I thought these cards looked so cute on the camouflage wrapped gift. TGIF!

Here is a suggestion for your quilt. By some of that bubble paint in colors and go over the kids writing. One color for each square. I think it may be permanent. You could check it out at the store before buying it.
I think the writing in colors would add alot. It is very cute and a keeper.
On anoter note: I am so tired of the heat. It is going to be in the 90's here this weekend. I love you. Aunt Onalee

So glad your dentist apt went well today! As soon as Jason gets home from his deployment that is on my top 3 list of things needed to do! Hope I'm in your boat with the good news!
Love the quilt~ just darling that you added the special touch with their words.
We have those very same playing cards! Jason picked up some downrange and we got some in Germany. They're so neat! Made the gift really 'pop'!

I just can't get enough of Dick and Jane! That fabric is too cute.

The gifts are a great idea too! I used to do so many cards fun things, and I just haven't been into it lately. Too busy studying and working!

Stop by my place for an Uppercase Living giveaway! The entries end tomorrow at noon.

Oh how cute the material is...would love for you to share how to make a skirt. I am trying to learn a few sewing techniques. Oh and the quilt is so cute also!

Love the cards!

I don't like the dentist that much either....I have a few gum problems well with one of my tooth in the back...the gum is reseeding. Just feels so weird when my tongue rubs it.
