Thoroughly Poetic Thursday#142

    Poetic Thursday hosted by our pals Teddy and Angel Sammy you want to know a secret?

As soon as I saw this photo, the lyrics to "Do you want to know a secret", 
by Paul McCartney and John Lennon, popped in my head.  It was one of my favorite Beatle songs.  The words and music are beautiful

ListenDo you want to know a secret?Do you promise not to tell?Whoa, oh, oh
CloserLet me whisper in your earSay the words you long to hearI'm in love with youOoh-ooh-ooh-ooh ooh
ListenDo you want to know a secret?Do you promise not to tell?Whoa, oh, oh
CloserLet me whisper in your earSay the words you long to hearI'm in love with youOoh-ooh-ooh-ooh
I've known a secret for a week or twoNobody knows, just we two
ListenDo you want to know a secretDo you promise not to tellWhoa, oh, oh
CloserLet me whisper in your earSay the words you long to hearI'm in love with youOoh-ooh-ooh ooh-oohOoh-ooh-ooh ooh-oohOoh-ooh-ooh ooh-ooh

Wordless Wednesday

Thank you to our Hostess

This gorgeous red tree was seen on my EMW Sunday, November 12, 2023

On Edgedale Drive

On Pastille MMW (mid morning walk)

The homeowner was working in the yard...he suggested I come back about 3pm.
The sun shines thru the tree into the front window making a beautiful red reflection on the walls.

Happy Sweet Tuesday

  • feeling or showing pleasure or contentment:

Thank you to our 

 Hostess Sandee at Comedy Plus   

Once again I'm making a memory quilt for my neighbor. 


this may or may not be displayed on my blog.  It has been a bear.  She wanted  all of her deceased sister's favorite  knitted sweaters/tops made into a quilt. 

Needless to say this was my 😱when she texted her request?!  You may or may not see the rest of this story. I (strongly) advised her not to use the knitted sweaters due to raveling and stretching.  She actually said I don't mind if the quilt is a bit catawampus.  

Anyway Burney's Sweets and More is in the same shopping center as JoAnn's Fabrics. We needed to go the JoAnn's to pick out fabric for the border and backing. She suggested we go to Burney's for sweets and coffee.



As you will see from the next photos  Bruney's makes it hard to decide so of course one has to return

Note top shelf last tray on the right...they had a Croissant topped with Maple Syrup and Bacon bits.

I ordered a to go bag  one topped with brown sugar
and one filled with apples.

Jane and I ordered a Fudgy Croissant

No matter the outcome of this quilt, I will have sweet memories from Burney's and the quilt will give Jane sweet memories of her sister.

Surprise 4 tops were silky voile type fabric.
 Here is a pic of 3 rows of  10" sqs sewn together and 2 rows (top and bottom rows) of 5" rectangles. 

This is the memory quilt I made (2019) for her from her mother's blouses.  Originally there were two one for Jane and one for her sister.  I joined them for her in 2021.  I was very pleased with this one.  95% cotton blouses.  YAY

Awww Monday with Kat and Rocky

 Thank you to our

Dearest Auntie HiC

We are almost too embarrassed to share this, but Mom is ridiculously easy to entertain!

Even a squeaky mouse on a stick & string gets her excited.

Humor her, Rocky.

Rocky & I like to play along to keep her happy. Teeheehee!

Volume up please, you'll love the music selection.

❤️ Kat  and Rocky

OMCs Kat and Rocky Auntie loves the music and your video.  You two are getting lots of chin and synchronized neck exercise.  Looks like you are watch a ping pong game.
