Dr. Seuss Day on Happy Tuesday

Hosted by Comedy Plus  

 Today we celebrate Dr. Seuss and  Happy Tuesday

Hosted by a trio of friends
June and Mom Ann provided our lovely badges

I will be using a prop featuring Winnie Pooh and friends

I'm 100% sure Dr. Seuss would say 
Don't dismay 
this day is for all
who want to  play.
Let your mind be loose 
As a goose
Let the words play
and it will make your day!!

The wee girl was a huge fan of Dr. Seuss too
Hop on Pop
made her laugh and
flip flop around

Green Eggs and Ham
made her say no 
thank you ma'am!

This plate was my daughter's when she was a toddler in the mid 1970's.  It is at least 43 years old. As the year's passed, it became a plate for my furry children too:
Milky-Way our first cat and Madison Diva Cat.  They ate Fancy Feast from it every day of their lives.

Awww Monday with my Nephews


Hosted by Comedy Plus 

Dearest Auntie HiC

It was a beautiful day here on The Hill.  

I love my little bro-furs, and Mom says I’m very patient, and kind to them

I even share my bed with them~~

After we walked Kat and Rocky, Mom took me out all by myself. 
But sometimes I want Mom all to myself! ❤️🐾❤️
Yep, it was a beautiful day. 
Mom and I love playing toss and fetch
Sound on, please.

❤️ Pup 

Dearest Sweet Nephew Pup!!!!
You email, photo and Happy Dog Video have made our hearts sing and OMDs, I'm smiling so big my face feels like it is frozen.  Bless you heart for being such a good brudder.
You knew how lucky you were when your Mom and Dad found you.  When Kat and Rocky showed up your big heart made room for the two Felines.  It is all because of your sweet nature that felines have learned to get along.
I think maybe I'll nominate you for Mayor of The Hill.
With love and hugs your Auntie HiC

Saturday Symmetry

Many streets in Raleigh are named after one of the 100 counties in N.C.

Say Perquimans 3 times fast.  I have a mental block with 

Pistachio which I rarely have to say.  I'm thankful I don't live on Perquimans Dr.

Transylvania and Rutherford Cos. are in the NC Mountains.

Middle photo is full of all kinds of symmetry and shadows.

Final Fiction Friday, Nature and Feline Flashback Friday

 This is my Final Fiction Friday 

Mama always said idle hands are the devil's workshop.

Just a wee post to show you all that my hands have not been idle. The pattern is called square in square.  It is simple.

First collage top left shows the Feline Friday.  

I thank our hostess Comedy Plus

The back of the quilt is all felines...
The remainder of the collages show up close on each sq. The sq. with the cross stitch heart 'I love U MU' was a Mother's Day gift my daughter made when she was a teenager. I took it out of the frame to incorporate into quilt.   

Pandas were a package of handkerchiefs that were given to me by a Physics PhD student. I have had them since the late 1990's.
I was so happy to be able to incorporate them into this Memory quilt.
A dear friend of mine heard about my love of buttons. She found a package of assorted buttons on eBay sent them to me.
My quilting is decorative stitches built into my machine. 

The below square was a patch of free hand embroidery on a table cloth that Margie, my mother-in-law made. Unfortunately the cloth has some stains on it I had to cut around stains so it is a wee bit crooked.

Last but not least the entire quilt

Thank you all for indulging my quilting obsession 

We started blogging in June 2009.

My first February 26 post was a Friday in 2010.

Flashback Madi was all about posing.

February 26, 2010 was Levi Strauss Day, according to a Whimsical calendar.

I, Madi,  was MIA on yesterday's post because I was out shopping for Levis to model today. I could not find any Levi's with four leg holes so I'm content to just sit on Mom's Levi's in honor of the day.

After 87 years of rain, the last 5 days have been gorgeous
Look at our blue skies
