My new project

My best friend is getting married on March 15th .
And she has been bugging me for years to make her a quilt so I am making her a wedding quilt in her favorite colors.
And the backing is going to be that bright plush red you see all the cotton laying on.
It shall be the loudest and comfiest quilt ever!
Now the only thing I have to say is the bitch had better not been lying when she said red and purple was her favorite colors!
I have no pattern, just some squares and an idea.
But then I never use a pattern when I make a quilt, i usually have an idea and then I just rip the fabric and sew it together until I am happy with it.
I will keep y'all posted as I progress with this baby.

He just keeps on growin!

He is three months old and his paw is nearly as big as my hand!
My finger and thumb barely meet when I put them around his leg.
If he grows in to them he will be one big old boy.
But that just depends if he out grows his stupidity to survive!
He keeps getting his head stuck under the gate in the back yard.
Cuteness he has in bucket loads brains....thimble fulls!

You may be from Texas if...

Forget Rednecks, here is what Jeff Foxworthy has to say about folks from Texas...

· If someone in a Lowe's store offers you assistance and they don't work there, you may live in Texas

· If you've worn shorts and a parka at the same time, you may live inTexas

· If you've had a lengthy telephone conversation with someone who dialed a wrong number, you may live in Texas .

· If "Vacation" means going anywhere south of Dallas for the weekend, you may live in Texas

· If! you measure distance in hours, you may live in Texas ..

· If you know several people who have hit a deer more than once, you may live in Texas

· If you install security lights on your house and garage, but leave both unlocked, you may live in Texas

· If you carry jumper cables in your car and your wife knows how to use them, you may live in Texas

· If the speed limit on the highway is 55 mph -- you're going 80 and everybody is passing you, you may live in Texas .

· If you find 60 degrees "a little chilly," you may live in Texas .

· If you actually understand these jokes and forward them to all yourTexas friends & others, you definitely live in Texas .
