So you want a sneak peek.........

Well, here it is ......... a sneak peek at a little of the crazy quilting that will be on exhibit at the Scott County Historical Society. Don't think for a minute that I stitched up this lovely block, though. This is the work of my friend, Deanna and if it weren't for her, our crazy quilting group wouldn't be!! But I can't tell you more because it will all come together in a few days ...................

In the meantime, this poster was hanging on the ceiling of my dentist's office and the words are prophetic!.............

Yes, if you are patient, I will share pictures and stories of our exhibit and I'll finally post my next Christmas ornament which is a Redwork ornament, and lots of other stuff! "Ewe" might enjoy the story of how I got the poster so I'll tell you........you may remember that a couple of weeks ago, I went to the dentist for a filling and also stopped at the local thrift shop (see photo below). As I looked up at the ceiling I saw this picture above. Now my "Wooly Buddies" group was really on my mind that day as we will celebrate our one year anniversary soon. I was making notes about it in my little M&M notebook while we waited for the novacaine to work. I commented to my dentist, Dr. Jabs, that I liked the message in the poster on the ceiling. He noticed that I must like chocolate when he saw my notebook. Valentines day was coming up and he said that everyone should have chocolate for Valentines Day and two layers for sure. Yep, that came from my dentist. :-) When he finishes with the filling, he asks me to come back in a couple of days to have the filling polished, so I do as he says. Again, I'm in the chair, looking up at the ceiling and I comment on the poster again. When he finishes the polish, he offers me some sugar free gum..........or, he says "you like that poster, would you like to have it". I wanted to giggle because I felt like a kid and said "you'd give me the poster". "Sure" he says. And so.......... the poster is mine and he will get good press out of this one little deed of kindness that I have shared with all of "ewe". Hee hee!

Now, to the thrift shop. I took a picture of the sign because if you are anywhere near Belle Plaine, MN and you love to peruse your way through a good thrift shop, then you need to find this one!! It's right off Hwy. 169 and is across from Emma Krumbee's Restaurant which if you haven't been there, it's also worth a stop for a great meal! While I was at the thrift shop, I picked up several little goodies, but the mug below just "screamed" that it was meant for me...............
Truly, that is me.........I am so far behind, that yes, I think I am first!! Too funny!! And now it's getting too late to write anymore as I need sleep so I can get back to crazy quilting details in the morning. "The Big Snow" is coming and I am ready to be "snowed in".
See ya tomorrow.

I am so excited to read about the crazy quilts. I have always loved them.

The poster story is too funny. Guess it pays to go to the dentist.

Sorry about more snow for you. If you find a way to ship it here we can use it in our mountains for the spring melt.

Your dentist sounds like a sweetheart! I am getting personalized m and m's for my DS wedding this spring. Fun! I love the thrift shop a lot here too. That mug is just how I feel at times! Too cute! I got lots done today on my day off, and that feels great. It also feels great that you picked me for your blog pick of the moment! I am honored and thank you so much for all your kindness.
