A little bit of everything

All of the new blingy flag pendants sold quickly, so I made a few more of those...

 I love this big key charm, and wanted to use it with something, thought it was perfect with the heart...

I know I say it every time I show this quilt, but I'm so excited to have it almost finished!  It took some time to get the border all prepped, but I've been trying to stitch a little each night and I have less than 2 sides left to go!

 And of course, Callie felt the need to help me!
Ozzie was being a good kitty, sleeping on the chair!

 I have been admiring several bags from Mona B for quite awhile now, and finally broke down and placed an order.  I love everything patriotic and had to have this one.  My mom, SIL and niece took a quick trip to the Chicago area last week, and this was my car bag - I took my Sunflower Gathering quilt and worked on it along the way.
I showed you this awhile back - and I took it and all of my markers along and we colored at the hotel in the evening (I have a very wild and crazy life - lol!)
Look at what my niece did!  I love it...
 And here she is with her true loves (haha) - her chickens!  I really don't know why, but she loves them to death!  I will be the crazy cat lady and she will be the crazy chicken lady.  Oh well, she is adorable and I love her even if she is a chicken lover!

My computer issues are not completely resolved, unfortunately.  There were too many people "working" on it that didn't know what they were doing (NEVER will Tech Help get into my computer again) and they lost all of my contacts.  That is my entire customer base from the last several years.  They were able to get some, but not all, of them back.  So now I have to recreate that list.  And the other big issue is that I am not able to send out an e-mail to all of my customers, because there are too many and they say that their system is not made to handle that.  We live in rural Iowa, so there really aren't a lot of other choices, so now we need to figure something else out.  Probably an exchange server of some kind (I know absolutely nothing about any of this!).  I've seen that many shops use Mail Chimp, Constant Contact and Elastic Mail - if you know anything about any of these, I would really appreciate information!

Happy Monday - hope you have a great week!


  1. I can see why the blingy flags are so popular! And the key with the heart--perfect!
    That has got to feel SO good to be near the end of the Sunflower quilt. I'm excited for you and I won't even have the joy of having it to look at all finished each day. : )
    A Flag Bag--how cool!
    Love the photo of your niece with the chickens. I spent hours in my youth on my Grandpa's chicken farm, but I don't think I love them like she does--in fact, I know I don't.

  2. My hat is off to you for finishing the PRG BOW!! It is a stunning quilt when finished.

  3. I like your flag bag. Your bling necklaces are fabulous. Thanks for sharing.

  4. I love the extras added to your charms. Very fun.
    So sorry about the computers issues. I still have disappearing comments or mis directed. Found several important emails in spam last week! Hope you get a good outcome.
