here are some pictures

This is Dimitri and his quilt. I like the way this one turned out. I had this fabric for  a while and when it hit me that Dimitri was Irish I just had to use it!

This is Dustin. Dustin got picky when I told him that he was next on list to get a quilt. He wanted either Ford or Harley. I could not find either of those materials, but I did find material with motorcycles on it. Dustin said that he loved it, and he even brings the quilt when he comes up here! LOL

This is one of my sunflowers. I do not know what I do to get the to grow higher then the roof, but oh well. They always look so nice, but they do not last that long.

For some reason I got up at the crack dawn. I must say that the crack of dawn is about as ugly as I am in the morning. The coffee could not brew fast enough.

I am on cup number 2 so I am starting to get it all together.

My day is looking real easy. I am caught up on the laundry so that is done for the day. Hmmmm let me think. I think all I have to do is clean out the liter boxes and change the kittens bedding. That will give me a lot of times to hopefully get this baby quilt done.

I think the marines are going to start getting real bitchy if I do not get back to sewing their blankets. I swear to you guys that these are not big bad marines. The are boy scouts with blankets!

Oh crap I so forgot to edit journal and add my yellow ribbon. Note to self must add a yellow ribbon.

My girlfriend came down last night and she had a folded up piece of paper in her hand. It turns out that we have a child molester living right behind us! One of the neighbors on the other street ran a check on the new people moving in and sure enough. So last night I went to California's sex offender registry and looked him up. I printed out his picture and a list of all of his crimes and I taped it to our front window. I also taped up a sign that said "This pervert lives behind us. If you see him near our property or our children......." My girlfriend is going to go make copies of his picture and crimes and we are going to go door to door and pass them out. Then we are going to petition the city to make him move. I hate perverts!

Today was take your parent to school day..... for the high school. So the girls took some of the marines with them! LOL I guess that works.

Well I am going to go get dressed and try to get my day started. I swear I do not want to see the crack of dawn again.

I saw this in another journal and just had to pass it on. So all of you moms gather around!

The video is sheer genius!!!!!  Love it!
Love the boys with their blankies!  So tough.  
I check the sex offenders list often.  One ones near us are too far away than goodness.

You do a great job on those quilts!
I just got an email today letting me know that two sex offenders moved in near us.  Not too close, but still --!  It's good to keep up on it.

I love your quilts. I will have to show you the one I pieced, but haven't had a chance to work on.
I would want the child molester to move too. Glad someone found out he was around. I'm sorry but those kind of people do not change.
Sunflowers are my fav and your are big and awesome. I love it. Thanks for sharing.
Take care, Chrissie

Loved the quilts. Wonderful work! As for the crack of Dawn; My favorite time of the day (winks). I have a little ritual I do to welcome the day and send prayers up on the smoke for those in need. Somehow it gives new meaning to the Dawn, the beginning of new day, a fresh start, the possibilty that everything is new. As for the Sex Offender, I would be making copies of the guy and where he lives as well as what his crimes where and passing them out no matter what. If he was uncomfortable living there anymore so be it. I have no sympathy for perverts. (Hugs) Indigo
