Hi Everyone. I am new at this blogging stuff so if something doesn't make sense you will know why.

A little bit about me.

I am 55 years old and disabled and also visually impaired and can no longer drive. I live with one of my daughters and her boyfriend. I have no pets of my own but they each have a dog. One is Bear which is 9 or 10 years old and is a corgi. The other one is a pure white German Shepherd who is 4 years old and her name is Annie.
I don't have my own pet because I would probably forget to feed it and it would die. That's what has happened to the 2 fish my other daughter gave to me. It took me exactly one week for them to die. Same goes with plants. And therefore I have come to the conclusion that the only reason Bear and Annie are still alive is because they don't belong to me. LOL

My hobbies include making quilts for a charity called Project Linus. Our group is small about  15 women. Our coordinator Nancy is the best. She is very organized with everything that has to do with Project Linus and has worked her rear off getting donations of fabric, batting, thread and yarn and anything else we need  as she doesn't want making quilts and afghans for Project Linus to be a burden on any of us for supplies. Kudos to Nancy and to everyone involved. It is all very very appreciated.

Several days a week and ALWAYS on Saturdays my friend Brenda, her husband Kevin comes into town 20 miles roughly round tripto pick me up and take me totheir house so that Brenda and I can sew together. I can't express the gratitude that I have to Kevin for doing this for Brenda and I. Brenda is my best friend and I am hers.

Brenda asked me to do a mystery quilt with her a few months ago and I said yes, And so we are doing it together. The mystery quilt is with Carole from "From my Carolina Home" and is called "Mystery Scrap Dance 2"

I hope anyone that reads my blog will  go and check out her site. It is a very  nice site and there is so much that she does and is kind enough to share it with others.

Here are a few pictures of my progress so far.

They were sewn wrong LOL but now are correct but this is what they are supposed to look like except the solid square...those are black and not different color....thats because Brenda and I boo booed...but we sure did have so many great laughs over that.

Here are a few quilts that I have made.

The picture of the horse belongs to my youngest daughter. Her horse is 32 years old and loves for my daughter to dress her up like this. This is Halloween 2014. And is an Elmers Glue Stick.


  1. Good Evening...BEST FRIEND DEANNA! I knew you could do it and you did a great job, plus posted some fabulous pictures. Although, Kevin had to explain the Elmer's Glue Stick costume and joke. Not so funny at all.

    You did make one other boo boo, besides all of those colored two and a half inch squares that had to be ripped out by you and Jack the Ripper JR. weren't there about 42 of them? Where as I only had to rip out what was it only 4? LOL!!!!! Oh yes, the other boo, boo...the Mystery is actually called Scrap Dance Tango Mystery Quilt 2016. Carole will not give any details on why she named it Tango; only that it would make sense when it was all pieced together.

    Love all of your quilt pictures! I was going to post pictures on my blog today but had trouble with finding the pictures. Will have hubby get me set up tomorrow and do a post then. Oh also try and remember to post on Flickr also for another entry. I have a feeling that I am going to get my blogging boots back in gear knowing that you are going to be doing it also! Great job Deanna! Got to go though, I still have not had the chance to eat one of the ENCHILADAS that you made on Friday. Delicious! Have a fabulous creative night!

  2. Well golly geez I tried. lol Wonder if I can edit my blog
