Patti with her blue stars.
Paula's---don't you love the borders?
I think this was Pam's quilt.
Angie stopped by with Cade! Everything stopped...who can resist a cute little guy? He gave me a kiss.
And here's Robin....she designs patterns for Charm squares and Jelly Rolls. She has an awesome blog. Click here to read.

April 15, 2009
Today we joined the estimated 1200-1500 other Humboldt County residents, held a sign, waved a flag, sang patriotic songs and stood up for our country. We stood against tyranny, pork spending, bailouts, trillions in spending putting us further and further in debt.
To watch the video, Click HERE.
There were young people, old people, toddlers, middle-agers, college students, bikers, bakers, truckers and teachers. There were even some Revolutionary soldiers and their ladies. We saw grocers, cowboys, lawyers, doctors, builders, artists, dog owners, Grandmas and Grandpas, quilters and singers. Speeches were spoken, the Constitution read, The Star Spangled Banner sung by the crowd. As the traffic slowed and drove by, they cheered, they honked their horns in agreement, waved their flags and gave us thumbs up. Only one middle finger was shown in the 2 1/2 hours I was there.
Mr. Scottie Dog and I made our signs last night.
I didn't want to use a glib phrase, I wanted to convey what I think is important and also lacking in many of our Congressmen. So I just listed some of the 12 principles this country was founded upon.
Of course I had a flag. I had gotten two of them last week. The two gals who organized this Tea Party gave out 500 flags...not every one got one. Many people brought their own flags...tiny ones, huge ones, Betsy Ross flags and modern versions. Afterwards I gave my flag to Sydney. She was so excited to get it. I think she thinks there will soon be a parade.
Thank you for all the supportive emails (and the one trying to convince me I had it all wrong), phone calls and messages.
For now, I feel good. I acted on a conviction. It's probably not the end for me, but for now.....I'll get back to quilting.

and 12 Values:

After all the eggs were dyed, Syd put on the stickers that came in the dye box. Each egg was a masterpiece. As you can see below we did well. Only thing that would have made it more fun would have been to have Jakob & Mercedes here.
Easter isn't all about eggs, bunnies, candy & peeps....it's about new life...Jesus is risen! He is risen, indeed.

It's always tough narrowing down the pile of fabrics in order to bring in the best of the best for Scottie Dog Quilts! Here is just a teaser of a line we bought from Studio E: it is called "Naturology."
There are a lot more pieces to Naturology, but I just put a few of them here for you to get the feel. Liz and I both loved the birds... wrens, robins and humming birds.

Isn't that just too cute? I know her friend, Larissa, helped to design it. BRAVO!
I was there the very early morning he was born. And I cried like a baby. Grandbabies are the BEST!
I loved the cake! And it seems that Jakob and Sadies did also.
There was a part of me that felt we "whimped out" when it came to the gift part. Mr. Scottie Dog and I sent $$ to Beka since they would know best what he wanted/needed and we'd save on shipping the big box to Minn. Of course a box of little goodies & toys and Easter fun and new Easter outfits was sent from Eureka a few weeks ago, but that was a small box.
Jason and his Mum (Linda is Canadian) had a great time doing the shopping. See what we bought the Birthday Boy: A motorcycle! And he's nice enough to let Sadies ride too! Wish I could have been there, but there's time for more parties in the future.
