27 Years

That's right, it was twenty seven years ago today, (well, in another time zone) that my dearly beloved and I were married. To think there are those of you out there having anxiety over your 27th birthday! Your just getting started! You have years ahead of you if you're as lucky as I am.... and I am very lucky. I am married to a wonderful guy who (for the most part, ha ha) puts up with my chaos. He makes me laugh more than any other person on earth. We have fun adventures together. We have comfortable quiet times too.... I am so glad to know him and be his other half. His crazy half..... Happy anniversary Babe!

One down, so many to go......

Finally finished one of the quilt tops..... Ok, I only tied this one instead of quilting it, but it counts. I will put it up in the shop and hope it inspires someone. Speaking of the shop, I just want the crew to know that you all have been VERY inspired this week! What fun ideas we have come up with in the last few days. If we can even get half of them done, it will be great, but I think we can do it all! Can't wait to see your butterflies hung Jennifer, Katelyn was working hard to try and finish them.... Then there is the new fabric...... YUM! See ya'll tomorrow!

How not to bind a quilt.....

Do anything but try! For instance, make a bunch of bags! I guarantee your quilt will never get bound....Or, play with your cat. If you don't have a cat, borrow one......

If you can't borrow one, make one.

Too much going on

Since I can't focus enough to complete anything, you get pictures..... They are random, they are favorites, they are probably nothing you are interested in but it makes me feel better to know I posted something.....

Downtown Stuttgart.....

If you haven't been to the Wilhelma, you must go!

Brinkely, on his way to Garmisch. Another spot you shouldn't miss.One of the billions of beautiful scenes you may see...

Look at what she made!

My daughter, the clever one! You can see some of her other things here. This is screen printed using freezer paper templates. She had to hand cut each one. Her first were a whole bunch for a friend's baby shower and I really wanted one too! Jessica, I love it! For those of you here, I will wear it to work so you can see it up close.

This is something I made last week. My dear friend Dora gave me the recipe. Did you know you can deep fry Elderberry flowers? They are good! Of course I think they were the right flowers. Don't tell you know who, he ate them and liked them. When I told Dora that I hoped they were the right ones, she was not happy with me. She is still not sure I haven't killed us.......

Aren't they cute?

Everyone else is always posting cute pictures of their kids. I decided it was time for me to do the same. Ok, that and I have been an unblogger this week. Anyway, what ever the reason, I wanted to share one of my favorite photos of my oldest two. It was such a good day, they had so much fun together. Played well, no fights, what more can a mom ask for?

1 Tandem + 1 Flat Tire = A Long Walk Home

So you may have seen us out there this evening. I finally consented to a bike ride, on the tandem no less. The scenery was gorgeous. We waited until evening when the temperatures were lower. It started off a bit sketchy, I am not a good bike rider, but that wasn't the problem. There was a guy, driving a car, he was stupid. I mean WHO passes a car when they are turning right at an intersection, on a narrow two way street? My Dearly Beloved is a great bike rider and I refrained from screaming and flailing so all is well..... until the hill and the gears going wonky. I must say again, because of the DB, I did not hit the ground very hard.... and off we went again. I was doing a lot of thinking as we went along. Things like, OK, this is not so bad, I can DO this, WHY do I wait so long to do this, look at the pretty ferns, uh oh here comes another hill, I hate hills, I am over this, if he says one more time this is the hardest part I may have to kill him, (mind you all of these thoughts were over about an hours time). My last really big thought was, oh my, I REALLY don't want to be riding this bike anymore..... and that last thought is what did us in, seriously, be careful what you wish for. I heard the pop, but he didn't say anything so I thought, whatever...... I then started telling him (loudly) I really need to stop and get something to drink. His reply was, we are ONLY ten minutes from home! I grumbled a bit but kept pedaling because I am a trooper. I was not paying attention, so missed what the DB said at first, I was hoping it was something like, Hey! let's stop for something to drink after all because you have done a really great job and I know you're really thirsty and the water bottle is almost empty. Actually, what he said was, I think we have a flat. At that moment, I knew I had gotten what I wished for and it was not actually what I wanted. Now, what you must understand is, he was trying to encourage me when he said we were only ten minutes from home. We were more like twenty minutes from home. This turned into a forty minute walk with the DB pushing the tandem. I was carrying the helmets and let me tell you they were heavy. The good news is, it was a beautiful evening for a walk and there is no one on earth I would have rather been with...
