My goal for July was to complete
(5) blocks for the

Scrappy Trip Along - Bee
I am happy to say I completed my goal!
After last month I thought I was dust.

Here they are for you to see!

The Hive Mates from Round 5 Hive 3
(4) United States,
(1) Great Britain,
and (1) Australia
all mailed on time!

How it works?
In August there will be a new signup for
Hive 6
Signups will be announced


The same tutorial is used each time
Quiltville's Quips & Snip! Scrappy Trip Around The World

All those who signup are
broken into groups
of 6 people called hives!

Each person has a preference that is shared with group.
(I like fun novelty prints & bright modern prints)
With the idea of what each hive mate wants to receive
you begin searching through you fabric stash!

No need to purchase any fabric use
what you already have!

While digging through my stash
I found all sorts of fabrics to use
for the round but also ones
I forgot where hiding inside those plastic tubs.

It inspired me to pull stash for a new project
now that I completed the hive blocks!

You really do end up with a scrappy quilt
from around the world
made by many hands!

After participating in two rounds
I have received (10)
blocks that I really love!

I really hope a few of you will join me!
I know you want too!
A fun way to make a scrappy quilt!

Thank you for stopping by!
Create and be unique!

I am linking up with Sew BitterSweet Designs - ALYOF - July Finishes Party

Come see what everyone has made this month!

Happy Birthday Daddy

Today is my Daddy's birthday.
He is a young 79 and lives with
his lovely wife in the Philippines.
I miss him very much but so very happy
for him to have found love with Maria.

I just found out as I am writing
this he is in the hospital!
Get well soon Dad
I love you very much!

Happy Birthday my dear Daddy!

These are my favorite photos of you
Because you look so happy!

Your namesake David learning
to use the lawnmower!

It is so hard when I cannot just call and say
"I love you"!

He is such a handsome and smart young man!
We are very proud of him!

Randy and I saw Zoey this last weekend in Lexington, KY!
(Kristin's new place)
She so reminds me of someone else at that age!

Mischief in her eyes and a smile on her face!

Me and my chickens!
The little creatures bring me great joy!
(Except when I am cleaning up poop)!

Kristin came home for the 4th of July with Zoey!

It sometimes hard to believe these beautiful women are my babies!

All grown up!

Ashley's living and working at the beach!

(Anyone not my family you may consider these vulgar
I apologize but I love these men very much)
I think this one will make you laugh dad!
Dad does this remind you of anyone else's
Picture lately?

We love you!

Happy Birthday!
Get Well Soon!

Lisa, Randy, Ashley, David, Kristin, and Zoey
