It's Friday!

I have spent the last couple of days in St. George trying to be a good mormon and quilt with my friends, because I have no talent and am not a "crafty" little mormon girl. It was good to have girl time and relax and not have anyone call me mom...except Wheelchair Boy did call me 17 times yesterday. At least one of my spawn likes me! He is the good child you know.

While I was there, I figures since I was the only one in the world not reading Miss Delacourt or anything by David Sedaris, I bought them. And yes, I did buy the book "Naked" just for the name of it. I'm only a couple of chapters in but it is hilarious! Does this mean I'm in with the the cool people?

Also, check out my BFF (whether she likes it our not) Shelle at BlokThoughts, her post on Dirty Little Secrets is too fun, and you can leave your secrets anonymously! But go ahead and leave your name...we won't judge...maybe laugh, but not judge!

OK, enough about the hot girl, 'cause it's all about me don't cha know! I wanted to show you a photo of a quilt I did for Wheelchair Boys' Neurosurgeon Dr. Peoples. I call him "Peeps" 'cause he has saved the boys' life so many times, I feel I have earned the right to call him names! OK, history...Peeps is a Einstein fanatic and has been collecting tee shirts since college and I took them all a made a quilt!





Yeah, yeah, yeah...it only took me two years but at least I finished it which is more than I can say for anything else I ever do.



This is Peeps and his Assistant Khyla, whom I love ssssooooo much 'cause she always laughs at my jokes!

For all you quilters, PLEASE don't enlarge this and look at all my mistakes cause it was done completely out of love, and I mean love! He is the greatest surgeon ever, an honest and upstanding guy, and dang cute on top of that! Oh, and he makes me laugh...

That is an amazing quilt!

And yes, you are absolutely in the David Sedaris Cool Club. When You are Engulfed in Flames is even funnier, if you can imagine.

It's a gorgeous quilt that looks like it too alot of WORK. You ARE a good mormon ---I do not quilt, sew, craft, can, scrap book - --I am a bad mormon. (tee,hee) The Dr. should really like it!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog - I love to meet new people, and HEY, it brought me over here. see you again.

Thats amazing!! I think you did a fantastic job, and coming from someone who knows absolutely NOTHING about quilts, I know that means a lot!

Coachdad said...

Wow...quite impressive. Can't imagine the time that it must have taken to get this done.

You and your dirty LIES! That's where McFly gets it! She is not called the QUEEN for nothing bc there is not anything she cannot do. I guess you can say you are modest when you're not in your bikini.

Hey I live in the southwest area of Vegas. Actually in the Rainbow ward, I heard that perhaps you might be in the very ward next to mine. If so we have to meet.
