Random Fun!

I feel like we need a little random fun!  Weekends are always welcome and highly anticipated, but they aren't always fun!  I mean, if you work you have to spend the weekend cleaning, grocery shopping, generally... taking care of business.  Not fun, but it has to happen.  

Yesterday was our 34th wedding anniversary!  When we say 'time flies', we are not kidding! It seems like only a few years ago I donned my wedding gown...which was nothing of the sort!  A capri jump suit and a trip to the courthouse! 

Tonight we will celebrate with good friends from our 'Old Portland' crew.  One couple lives here in Nashville and the other couple is visiting from Portland.  Blast from the past, lots of good conversation and tons of laughs!

Anyway, on to random stuff.  I have an app on my phone called Boomerang.  If you don't have it...get it!!  It's hilarious!  I'll show you!



























I've been working on a quilt and accumulated this pile of cuttings.  You know me and photos or random scraps!  Then I thought of Boomerang...and got this hilarious video!


It's Alive!!

The past few days we have had a wild turkey hanging out in our yard!  Really crazy, especially since there is a resident fox who lives across the street.  You would think a turkey dinner might me enticing to him!



After I posted my tutorial for the Wonky Mini Charm, Vicki immediately pulled out a patriotic mini charm pack that had been sitting around for two years, and whipped up the cutest table runner!  

I still cannot believe how quickly she put this together!  And I'm so thankful she shared it with me!  She staged it so perfectly with Uncle Same, don't you think?!

Back in February I started a quilt for my daughter.  It was a milestone birthday for her and one that deserved a special quilt!  I recently got it back from the long arm quilter and sewed the binding on it that same day!  I wasn't too excited, was I?!  While she and I were taking photos for a upcoming blog post, we couldn't resist a little more Boomerang fun!

I'm hoping these videos work...if not I have both posted on Instagram!  You can check them out there!

I hope you have a random fun filled weekend!

    1. I'm surprised it's been so many years, and it's probably a shock to a few people who never thought it would last too! I didn't make the Uncle Sam runner! Vicki made it from my mini charm tutorial and was kind enough to share a picture with me!
