Poor Golo, you see I know the secret to her sewing achievements, wanna know what it is?

Sanity, simple as that, if Golo doesnt sew she would lose her mind, think Fawlty Towers, think all the silly hotel/motel movies or shows you can remember and then stick Golo in the picture, she is the poor lady at the desk sorting out all those guests! Running a motel means living in your job, not easily being able to leave and well, dealing with guests. Golo is chained to her front counter BUT her chain is long enough to reach her sewing machine, so, she sews and sews and sews and stays sane, thank goodness for that, a crazy Golo might be dangerous, we know she has a gun! lmao


sew away Golo, sew away and show us pics, we wanna see the mini quilt!

Deb, who is still unsure? Lets go get em'
:horse you rode

I need to box up some of that hail for the outdoor kitties (ferral...won't come in) who are so hot, they are lying in the tiny stream of hose water I put out for them in the dirt. Poor babies. I could spread out a carpet of hail for them to rest on. I put out a frozen bottle of water in case oneof them might snuggle up to the cold...but they ran away. Sigh. I didn't want to make them run because of the heat.

you could drop the frozen water bottle into a bowl of water, kitties actually like icy cool water in hot weather, I used to put ice cubes into our babies bowls. Id love to sit by fire, question is, can I stand ABC kids (our version of BBC) I dont think I can bear anohter episode of bananas in pjamas or bob the builder LOL (I dont like tv much with with rainy weather and a sick kid, I gave in)

Have you ladies picked out your pattern yet for this swap? I made one today and I'm just not sure I really like it. So, tomorrow I'll make a different one and see which I like the best. It has applique in it and I love applique! I have so many I want to make it's real hard to pick just one.

Off to beddy by, but would love a BIG piece of Chocolate cake that redworker and gimpy were talking about! :)
