Prozac Quilt top by Hawghugger. "This quilt was way too much fun to make. No pattern, just a lot of sewing. Each block started out with the 3D flower and strips of fabric added till I liked each block. None of the blocks are the same size, therefore putting it together was tricky, but, it all worked out in the end.
IT WAS TOUGH YESTERDAY--FIGHTING AGAIN OVER THE SAME DAMN ISSUE. BUT I DIDN'T CAPITULATE. ITS GONE ON FOR YEARS. I WAS FREE TO QUESTION HIM UNDER OATH--AS DID THE JUDGE. I TOOK A CHANCE--ONE I NEVER WOULD HAVE TAKEN BEFORE B/C I WAS TOO GOOD. YOU KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE REAL FREEDOM?--WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING LEFT TO LOSE. YESTERDAY--THOUGH SCARED--I WAS FREE. AND I'M HERE TODAY TO WRITE ABOUT IT.

Things to make.
Lost in translation but adorable I will find a way to do this too!
The sequel to 100 cupboards. I enjoyed it just as much as the first but it was a little too intense to read to my 7 year old. I would say 4th grade or older would be perfect.

“She had nothing to wish otherwise, but that the days did not pass so swiftly. It was a delightful visit;—perfect, in being much too short.” ~Jane Austen
I love you more ... more than yesterday, but not at much as I'm going to love you tomorrow
THIS HAS GONE TOO FAR. SERIOUSLY. I WILL KILL YOU, RICK, IF YOU KILL OFF NICO, LEO, OR PERCY. YOU CAN KILL OFF JASON FOR ALL I CARE (sorry Jason lovers, but the others are much more important to me than him). BUT YOU SO MUCH AS TRY TO KILL OFF ANY OF THEM, I WILL KILL YOU. BEST YET, LET OCTAVIAN FINALLY SEE THE LIGHT AND SHUT THE DOORS HIMSELF SO NONE OF THE SEVEN HAFTA GO THROUGH THIS.

Lily Elsie was a popular actress and singer in Edwardian days. A century later, thanks to the Internet, she has been rediscovered. Her dreamy beauty was captured in scores of photographs. She posed in many beautiful dresses, but none so frequently as the one seen here. I haven't been able to discover who designed the gown (although one source claims it was Lucile) or what color it was, but that just sets us free to imagine.
Corfe Castle, England. Although ruins are all that remained of Corfe Castle, the fortifications still make quite a big impression. Located in the county of Dorset on the Isle of Purbeck, the castle dates back to the 9th century. It is believed, however, that Corfe might have emerged much earlier and was a Roman defensive site. The parts whose remnants you can see today were constructed in the 11th century, and two centuries later the fortress was used as a royal treasure storehouse and prison.
Marvel crossed his arms and raised an eyebrow. June shifted uncomfortably, looking to both sides and then letting out a hesitant sigh. "Fine. You were right. I was..." Marvel nodded, waiting for the rest of what she was going to say. "I was less right." He shook his head, a smirk crossing his face. He knew that was about as close to an apology he was going to get at this point. But he'd take it.
"Complain none-too-much of being a black sheep 'fore I might turn my dark ear to hear your bleats..."
Think Chinese foot binding was "weird" ? Today's shoes are not much better... Women are still hobbled and have many more health problems as a result. I'm guilty too, but can all us women agree that extreme heels are not the answer?
British bombers Vickers "Wellington" Mk I of the 9th Bombardment Squadron in flight. The photo was taken during a training exercise in 1939. The 9th Squadron fought as "Wellington" until August 1942, when it was changed to "Lancaster".

This sweet girl is the 3rd baby in a way-too-gorgeous family! Ive been lucky enough to photograph each of these dolls at my favorite age, 6 months old. S was so easy going and full of smiles, and as you can see, the camera adores her. But, not as much as I did. I wanted to take her home.
As a child in Puerto Rico having fresh Pomegranates was a typical treat .. Was so much fun to eat a Granada Fruit! Yummo

Vanilla Wafer Cupcakes with Banana Pudding Frosting Very good! And no bananas!!! The amount of icing I made was too much but I am going to use it to dip vanilla wafers in and it will be great! You could honestly use it as a fruit dip if you put a different pudding in it.
Work-for-hire list of chores. I like the idea of having instructions with the check list, but I'd pay more for the chores. Feels a little too much like Cinderella - work all day for less than $3! lol
