Owl from Samheim Celebration

little owl with marbled wingsSamheim Celebration was created by Linda C. Smith.  I am sad to say that the photo of the entire quilt did not come out.  Little screen and no glasses, it looked like it was in focus.  But I think he is the cutest Little Owl with his marbled wings.


Dusk by Colleen Wisedusk_cu1dusk_cu2This past weekend Colleen Wise was the Featured Quilter at Block Party Quilters 2011 Quilt Show.  I have viewed many of her quilts over the years, but her most recent work “Dusk” will always have a special place in my mind.  After all she used a variety of my Hand Marbled Fabric in her creation.  Colleen always encourages the viewer to look into the quilt, rather than just at it.

Women Over 50 Rock!

I recently recieved this and thought is was worth the read.  If you are under 50 think of it as something to look forward to.

In case you missed it on 60 Minutes, this is what Andy Rooney thinks about women over 50.

As I grow in age, I value women over 50 most of all.  Here are just a few reasons why:

A woman over 50 will never wake you in the middle of the night & ask, ‘What are you thinking?’  She doesn’t care what you think.

If a woman over 50 doesn’t want to watch the game, she doesn’t sit around whining about it.  She goes and does something she wants to do, & it’s usually more interesting.

Women over 50 are dignified.  They seldom have a screaming match with you at the opera or in the middle of an expensive restaurant.  Of course, if you deserve it, they won’t hesitate to shoot you, if they think they can get away with it.

Older women are generous with praise, often undeserved.  They know what it’s like to be unappreciated.

Women get psychic as they age.  You never have to confess your sins to a woman over 50.

Once you get past a wrinkle or two, a woman over 50 is far sexier than her younger counterpart.

Older women are forthright and honest.  They’ll tell you right off if you are a jerk or if you are acting like one.  You don’t ever have to wonder where you stand with her.

Yes, we praise women over 50 for a multitude of reasons.  Unfortunately, it’s not reciprocal.  For every stunning, smart, well-coiffed, hot woman over 50, there is a bald, paunchy relic in yellow pants making a fool of himself with some 22-year old waitress.  Ladies, I apologize.

For all those men who say, ‘Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free?  Here’s an update for you.  Nowadays 80% of women are against marriage.  Why? Because women realize it’s not worth buying an entire pig just to get a little sausage!

Andy Rooney is a really smart guy!

Send this to fine, fun, fabulous, fancy-free female friends over 50. Male friends can benefit from these words of wisdom as well! 😉
Even if you aren’t over 50 yet, you have to admit, this is funny!

 Lord bless Andy!
