Quilts and Guns

So, I've been working on this:

and I think it's pretty damned cute. Superchick has encouraged me to make many more for the upcoming CraftaNostra show. Just how many more? And how much should I charge?

In other news, some asshole tried to break into my car last night. Apparently, they really wanted the 11 cents and dog hair on the floor. The handle is all bent, but it opens. I'm so ready to sit up all night on the front porch with a shotgun, only I don't have one. Again, you shouldn't mess with short people. Our anger is concentrated!

The damned possums or rabbits keep eating my and Tiny Montgomery's tomatoes. More victims of my imaginary shotgun!

Matt found a website that tells you if your house was ever condemned, and ours was in 1997! It is a great time-waster, and I recommend you spend some time poking around it. We also found a website that has estimated appraisals of houses, but I have a hard time believing that ours is $181,000. Has anyone SEEN our ramshackle garage lately?

I'm so ticked about my car. So very , very ticked. Maybe this cloud scene the other night, before the 15 minutes of nickel-sized hail was a warning sign:

Go to Boobhaha and bid on wonderful things. I will put 2 hot pink streaks in my hair if Poppymom raises $1000. I know, 2 streaks isn't a big deal, but school starts in a short time, so it has to be tame enough to be re-dyed by late August.

Transformers=good movie. Not an intellectually stimulating masterpiece, but it's good at what its goal is. Plus, Matt ate Junior Mints that he thought HE dropped in the Moolah Theatre's leather couches, but then realized that there were more than one mint in the crack. Ha ha!

That is all. Give me price estimates of that quilt. It's about 36" square.

I don't know about pricing for that quilt, but I love it! Is it around 30"x30"? Too bad my sister isn't spitting out a girl...

Hey there, I came to you by the blog of This Garden is Illegal. You had commented about her deer problem. Since you had a picture I checked you out and found that you live in St Louis. Cool, I grew up on a farm that is between Warrenton and Washington west of St Louis.
Love you blog!! What first grabbed me was the quilts. My mother does quilting with the old ladies at her church. I have also made a couple of quilts and had them quilt them for me. Love this one!! You have done a great job!
I could go on and on but one last comment. Your diary blog about the onion sets brought back memeories. We alway had a large garden and when I was a kid mom would make the row and give me a stick about 6 inces long that I would use to make sure I didn't get the onion too close together.
Thanks for the memories!!
