And what I mean by that, is the trip Gary and I took across the river today to go to JoAnn Fabrics!!! First of all, we had seen in the paper earlier this week, that a "Blue Dog" sculpture had been erected on Veterans Blvd.
WELL, I have been in love with the "blue dog" for years, so with camera in hand, I was ready!!!!! And I wasn't disappointed!!! It is enormous!! And BRIGHT!
But it will look much better when all the "viewing stands" come down after Mardi Gras!!!

And Lea, this is just for you. A new Chick-fil-A is being built on Vets!

And when we got to JoAnn's, Katherine and Cynthia were both working (I used to work with them) and I got the Kona fabric I was looking for to finish my applique blocks that I am working on. So as you can see, the trip WAS well worth it!

I'M REALLY TRYING!! get back to this blog on a regular basis! I did update my blog list yesterday, but I'm still not done. Ah, ha!! Maybe that's why I'm not posting as much as I would like.....because I am too busying reading everyone else's blogs!!! I am so hooked on quite a few of the Selvage blog--never realized that I was throwing away something so valuable! LOL! So I've been busy cutting and saving them and am looking forward to making a few things with them. I'll keep you posted on that!
And I love LisaJo's "BlackBear Cabin" I met her at when we were in the "Birthday Block Swap" together. I love being able to watch her daughter, Jordyn, grow up! She's such a cutie!

I'm still working on Andre's (my nephew) graduation quilt. I am beginning to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have half of it sewn together and it is going to be a BIG one!! I promise I am close to posting a pic, so stay tuned.

Till next time.....
