Stitch and Bitch Quilters

Had a great time at S&B Saturday. Jenny made 2 kinds of soup and we had cheesecake for desert. Yum Yum I completed block 6 of my Baltimore Bunnies. 6 more to go. Yay! All in all it was a great day.

One of the things we talked about was odd habits. I have a friend who recently got a new male office mate. She didn't mind getting a male office mate but he's a nose picker. ick ick. My friend likes to keep a bowl of candy on her desk for people who stop by. One day my friend went to the bathroom and came back to find her office mate eating a handful of her candy. She didn't mind that he was eating her candy but questions arose. Did he wash his hands before putting his hands into her candy bowl? Now she keeps her candy dish in a locked drawer.

Years ago, I had a male co-worker who had the most atrocious manners. He would belch unashamedly everywhere he went. One day I wore my Vulcan Science Academy sweatshirt to work for casual Friday. He asked me if that was where I went to school. I said, 'Yes, it is!'. Did I also say this guy was clueless. He proudly announced that he went to Dartmouth. 'Good for you', says I. He went on to spout off his accomplishments and how great he was. In the middle of this conversation, he casually lifted his left leg and FARTED! (Ok, some people would politely say 'pass wind'.) It was so loud, it was a fart. I was stunned. No excuse me followed. He just continued blathering on, wondering why he couldn't meet someone nice. I wonder if anyone has enlightened him.

Ok, back to Stitch and Bitch. I photographed 20 of my UFO's. I couldn't believe I had so many. In the course of taking pictures, I realized that there were a couple that I could not find.

Here are some photos of more of my UFO's.

These are supposed to be pillow covers for my sofa. I used to have a beige sofa. Now I have a purple one. I think they will go ok.

This is a Piece of Cake BOM. I love these colors. Snowflake seems to like it, too.

This is a turning 20 project. I have all the pieces cut out ready to go.

This is another jelly roll project. Love them jelly rolls. Half the cutting is already done.

Snowflake likes having her picture taken.
This colorful quilt was to be a gift for my daughter's friend but they aren't friends anymore. oh well

Here is Snowflake posing again on my quilt. Is she a cutie or what?

Your male co worker story reminds me of the guy who took over my position when I left to have my first baby. Everytime he stood up he had to "arrange" his private parts and he always looked around to see who was watching and smiled at them. I was 20 yr. old and thought it was pretty gross.

Love the bright colors you have chosen, esp. the Piece O Cake one. Looking at the background fabric, like me, you could start a LQS. I love color. Patti
