Good Golly Miss Molly!

Good Golly Miss Molly....have you ever seen an egg this big?

Tonight we went to a wine tasting at the zoo. It was such a fun night, with various wines to be sampled as well as great appetizers and a silent auction. That's where the big egg came from...it's an ostrich egg from one of the birds at the zoo. When I saw that sitting on the table I just knew I had to have it. There were a number of people trying their best to win it, but I kept my eye on that big old egg! Wouldn't it look great with polka dots all over it :-)?!

This has not been a very productive sewing week for me. I worked Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, yesterday I did major cleaning, and today was errand day. My Red, White and Bold quilt is back from being quilted and I did manage to get the binding sewn on by machine. Just have the hand work left to do.

My friend Carol made this cute little hanging for me.. well, she really made it for Katie. Her nickname is cupcake, but I think I will be borrowing it just for a little while. She is one of the most prolific quilters I know. I need to bottle up some of her energy!!!

I have been doing lots of blog hopping and I can't believe all the wonderful projects being worked on out in blogland...........there are so many creative people out there and I have to give you all credit for getting me back in to the groove :-)! Hope that you all have a GREAT weekend, and don't forget to spring forward!

The egg is huge! So nice to have charity events work out well. I can't wait to see a picture of your finished quilt!! I love the wallhanging. I just bought that book and planned on making a few of the little quilts for my kids. It is really a nice book!

Hi..thank you for your visit to my blog and I sure have enjoyed visiting yours! I tried to send an email, but I keep getting some kind of Pop3 server error message. This happens to me a lot when I email people off their blogs.

Your site has so many interesting posts - thanks for sharing!

Oh my goodness - what an enormous egg!! Congratulations to Katie for a job well done!
I absolutely LOVE that cupcake quilt! I have a thing for cupcakes these days for some reason. They make me think of happy times, I guess!

That egg is hilarious next to the bunny...Ms. Bunny needs a wheelbarrel to push it around in..or a wagon to pull it in! How fun is that!
