When was the last time you made something for yourself?
I am sure so many of you are like me. We make things for everyone but ourselves.
On my personal
"To Do List", I have included a couple things for "me". I am going to make a little demi-tasse pincushion from a broken set that was my triple great aunts..... and a root beer float. Sounds good now, doesn't it?


I have always loved this weather vane....but is it a weather vane?It's on top of one of the neatest homes near where I live. My little sleepy town of Milford, PA becomes alive in the summer time. It is a haven for the city folk to escape the rat race and enjoy all the mountains, water holes and Delaware river has to offer.In September 2007, Budget Travel Magazine named Milford, Pennsylvania, second on its list of "Ten Coolest Small Towns in America".

I went garage sale-ing with my friend Laura today and she bought this most amazing antique rocker that us short people can touch our toes to the floor kind. I wonder if I can talk her into recovering it with a quilt top.....I'll let ya know if she does it and of course post a pick!
Aren't these the coolest quilty pieces of furniture?

I wonder if this was really intended to be used as a tent??? I think it looks awesome, why not, right?


Thanks again everyone for stopping in to take a peek here! Summer is in full force here in PA and I am looking forward to dipping my feet into some of the many watering holes here at the base of our waterfalls. Backpack,lemonade and cookies. That's what makes me happy on a summer day and of course my lil pup trotting along with me. I hope you come back and visit oftern. I love to read and answer comments too:

Quote for Today,Flying Hearts Applique, Beloga Sewing Machine,Vanessa Carlton,My Word Doodle,Cool Quilty Things I love,Your Color Fix for Today

Flying Hearts
Just a little applique fun we had in a swap on my Fairie Goddess Mother Yahoo Group. I had alot of fun making these and I received a bunch of other cool one's too!

Not Your Grandmother's Sewing Machine
I am a Bernina Girl, but I thought you would love to see this really cool sewing machine design. It's not in production just yet! Kinda reminds me of what the Jetson's would use! (Remember the Jetson's?)

belOga comes with a big "O", and an even bigger circular touch-screen which replaces the usual scheme of buttons and controls. This sewing machine concept was designed by Kristine Br├╝ckner, an industrial design graduate from the Munich's University of Applied Sciences with an impressive portfolio.

Apart from its less than ordinary shape, the belOga makes sewing more fun. By laying in a spool of thread the machine automatically conducts the thread through the machine - all you have to do is put the thread through the needle to get started. The centre display allows you to see what the stitch will look like in advance, this means less unpleasant stitching surprises. You can even enjoy the inner life of the belOga through two little lenses on the side of the body.

Kristine notes that the belOga is notyet in production, so feel free to drop her a message ( if you know anyone who is not afraid to spice up the backstage of fashion!


Vanessa Carlton

You know her. You've heard her. Click here to listen

Vanessa is from my town, Milford Pa and she came to grace the stage at the Milford Music Fest with her music and beautiful voice. We are very proud of her. The Milford Music Fest is free and we have brought in some amazing big names. The town transforms into a playground for music and art lovers. I took loads of pics and just hurried up some to post here.

Another song: Stevie Nicks and Vanessa Carlton. Click here

My Word Doodle for : Trees
I know, I posted my doodle for trees on my last post, but I couldn't stop. I haven't painted this in yet, but I thought of looking through cracked glass onto a beautiful tree. I'll post the colored version soon!
