Pick! Pick! Pick! Thought I would get some quilting done while David was at church this evening. I have to admit I usually use a long arm quilter to finish the quilts I make but lately I have become braver after watching Youtube videos. I have done 3 baby quilts so far and never had this happen!
This quilt is for the blog hop: Going on right now @Sew We Quilt, (lots of great stuff & giveaways), My day is November 25th, so I have to quilt and bind it fast. I thought maybe I hadn't pinned it right but no, I lift up the quilt to look under it for a real mess and see this instead! I sewed the quilt to the tablecloth! I just had to laugh!
It was time to stop for the night! Everyone messes up, you are not alone!

Have a great week!

Welcome to In The Boon Docks


For those who do not know, I was enlisted in the US Navy for 9 years. I got out after my second tour to raise my family. My husband retired from the US Navy after 20 years in 2005. My Father-in-law was in the US Army for 2 tours and my youngest daughter did 1 tour in the US Army. Last Friday, we went to a ceremony at David's school honoring the Veterans in your family. The photo below shows us all with David he was so happy we all showed up except Mamaw (feeling sick) did 1 tour in the US Army.
So we are a Military family. Now I know this is about boys but David insisted that Zoey be included and she makes a great head model. As you can see the adjustable head wrap (We call them do rags), one size fits all!

My husband's old do rags are falling apart so I decided to make him a few new ones. These are much quicker to make if you serge them but I just used a zig zag stitch on the seams. A do rag is worn underneath a motorcyc…

Family Friendly Restaurant But Change Your Babies In The Car

Family friendly restaurant but change your babies in the car!
As many families travel during the holiday, I thought I would warn you!


While traveling home Zoey was fussy as we left the hospital after dark and traveling West on I64. We decided to stop at a newBurger Kingwe had seen in Winchester to eat. I grabbed a few baby things from the car to diaper and feed her before I ate. Much to my surprise I found no changing station in a week old store and was more surprised when the Assistant Manager informed me that Burger Kings do not install Baby Changing Stationsin there stores! An item that could easily be purchased for less than $200.

Not worth the business they loose from young families and grandparents Burger King!

Update!
My daughter was transferred to University of KY Hospital. The Pseudo cysts on her pancreas are small and do not need to be removed at this time. She got home yesterday and is resting comfortably. In the mean time we have little Zoey back with us for care and …
