Sunday Sunday Sunday

This was a great weekend!! I have finally finished Clue 3 of the mystery quilt, and I cut 628 pieces - none larger than 2 1/2 inches square for Clue 4... Progress!!
~
Today I spent time with the Binding Buddies and we bound 16 Quilts of Valor!! We also may have eaten some Dark Chocolate Peanut M&M's too - we needed the protein and the antioxidants to keep healthy you know!
`

We have had a visitor this week and I think he has found himself quite at home. The black one is ours - he has found a brother. The other one really belongs to my dad. They are supposed to stay in the mud room, and I even have a gate up.
`

This morning as I was making breakfast I felt like someone was watching me. Apparently Hagen felt that the gate was just a decoration- he walked over it and was in the kitchen....I had to 'splain where he was supposed to stay *giggle*


*Stash/Collections Acquisitions*
`

A lot of you guessed what I acquired when I added to my collection... and you were right - a horse. Now you have to understand why - This picture on the right shows some that I already have - you will notice they are mostly reds, with one brown in there. Well - all of you quilters know that you can NOT have too much of just one color - you need blenders and compatible colors to round out your stash right?
`
So because my collection was so concentrated I needed a blender or 2 ( or more but I WILL never tell)
`
Here is blender 1 and 2 - they are smaller horses - but just perfect for my younger kids. They can do anything and are really gentle. We had fun. (note the ears of my horse..hee hee)

`
This last picture is my oldest on his horse - just wanted to be fair you know - can't leave any one out.












Hope you all had a good weekend. And I'll see ya tomorrow with more goodies that arrived at my doorstep recently.....

heaven girl, absolute heaven. I've always wanted a horse, we had two ponies for the girls for a few years; we did some simple "I'll walk you around the yard with the pony on a lead," but don't know the first thing about riding, bridling (is that a word?), etc....

Thanks for sharing!

I KNEW it! LOL - wonderful! They look perfect for the boys!

I really need to get a couple of small, laid-back, older horses for Munchie and Mini-me. Mine is too goosey for them. Just don't tell the Hunter!

I forgot to add (I was too excited about the horses!) that I am so proud of what you have done on Carolina Christmas. That is awesome! Also your binding party was great....can I borrow your binders? :-)

I suffered through working on my mystery this weekend. Finally realized I was missing a box of finished pieces and didn't have enough blocks! Why did it take me so long to figure that out?!?
I'll make quick progress now I hope!
How is yours coming along?
