Day 165 of 2019

Since it is Flag Day, 
I thought it would be appropriate to show you my Stars and Stripes quilt top
 which I thought I had shared here before but evidently had not.  
I made the top in June of 2016. 
Yes, it's still a top.  Time to get quilting, I guess.

Day 164 of 2019

It's a tiny zippered pouch called a Bitsy Box 
which I made as a birthday gift for a friend. 
I'll definitely be making more of these.

Day 163 of 2019

"Fun at Grandma's House" 

I have made the next Pinterest idea for fun with the grandkids
 and most likely the kids of all ages, if you know what I mean. 
These are meant to be used in place of water balloons. 
Keep in a bucket of water and fire away.
I can't wait to try them out...
after I make about twenty more.
Here's how I did it. 
After I cut two sponges into one half inch strips, 
I alternated them and placed a rubber band around them.

Day 162 of 2019

I have a Pinterest board called "Fun at Grandma's House."
I had a visitor today (GB#3) and decided to try out one of my pins. 
I figured what's the use of having things saved on Pinterest to do
 if you never do them. 
So today I made Sidewalk Chalk Paint.  
It worked pretty well and was fun to experiment with.  
When R came to pick up GB#3, she joined in. 
As I was looking at my pictures to choose one for the Picture of the Day, 
I noticed I spelled Bermuda wrong. 
I feel rather silly.  
If you know me, you know that this is not ok with me. 
I mean, I even proofread my texts before sending. 
I'll try to fix it tomorrow if there hasn't been any rain to wash it away. 
The next Pinterest project has been selected.  
It's going to be great fun!

Day 159 of 2019

I planted the pots in the back with Snapdragons, a family favorite. 
They are supposed to be a rabbit resistant flower. 
If you remember last year, the rabbit completely cleaned out my flower pots. 
If this works, I'll need to make a note to myself.
