A Finish and a Giveaway

Co-Defendant #2 and I have been busy, busy, busy today what with running around town spending money and planning our Mom and Me slumber party.  I am exhausted.  I am also stuffed full of pizza, sunburned and totally nauseous after watching Puss in Boots.  Not even the voice of Antonio Banderas could make that movie appealing.  But she's happy so it's worth it.  I think.

Here's the finish I managed to eeck out, my version of a Jelly Roll 1600 quilt.  Y'all, I never got so dang tired of stitching strips together!  The strips are from my friend, Betty P, who had them left over from a previous project.  I still have about half of them left. 

If anyone would like the leftovers, leave a comment and I'll draw a name tomorrow at noon my time.  (You know how I am about long waits!)

We've already painted our toenails (I'm too damn tired to bend down to take photos not to mention my own jelly rolls are in the way...that's fat rolls, not boobs...geez, you guys!).  Her toes are glittery; mine are blue and make me look cyanotic.  Oh, well!

Do we look like we're about to be naugh-teeee?

We are!!  Look what's for dessert...
Oreo cupcake

Chocolate...what else?!
Cupcakes from What About Cupcakes? in Waco.

Well, I'm off to watch an episode of The Dead Files (love it!) and eat a cupcake.  Can you eat a cupcake and drink a cocktail?  I'm about to try.  I'll let you know how it turns out.

Linking up to nifty Richard and Tanya QuiltsAmy Lou Who and Confessions of a Fabric Addict!

Happy quilting, y'all!


  1. of course,cocktails go with everything!

    I would your leftover -fabric that is, not cocktail ;)

    looks like a fun evening

    1. Ain't gonna be NO leftovers of the cocktail, hon but I'll put your name in the hat for the strips!

  2. That's a cute little Christmas quilt you made. You are 100% more productive in sewing today than I was because I did none. So how good do you feel now, hmm? Those cupcakes look very good indeed. Enjoy them. I have never heard of this show! Is it on a premium channel? Anyway, have a good weekend.

    1. The Dead Files comes on Fridays at 9pm on The Travel Channel of all places! I absolutely love it! #2 keeps bugging me about the cupcakes so I better hurry and get off of here before I have a mutiny on my hands. Can it be a mutiny if there's only one being mutinous?

  3. Hi there, I love your quilt. I would be happy to take your leftovers to make a holiday table runner or mini quilt. So pretty. Thanks for offering them.


  4. I want your leftovers! I don't have any christmas fabrics so these would make my stash :o) Enjoy your time together, I'm without kids this afternoon and about to leave to some great shopping, cafe and chat with friends :o) Whoop whoop!

  5. Awesome quilt! I love reading your blog and of course love a give-away! thanks for the chance :) Does a cupcake come included? ;)

  6. Leftovers - did someone say leftovers? Yes please - I'm always up for second ;) Great Christmas quilt - in time for the Christmas in July linkies coming up!! Whoop whoop Friday to you!!

  7. I don't want to enter your give away since I won last time but I wanted to say...

    Cupcakes and cocktails both go with just about anything.

    Glad to see you girls are having a good time. You deserve it. CD2 will treasure these memories.

  8. Love that Christmas quilt! But I'll pass on the leftovers - I'm still trying to use up my Christmas fabric stash so I can buy some new!!
