How Do You Like Me Now????

I just Love My New outfit!!!!!!

It's so nice to have something that really covers most of me. Thanks ya'll.

Rhoda Q. Tripp is checking in.............She doesn't want to be out done by her sister.

It's Roada's sister Rhoda. I didn't get to go to Houston, but I've been resting up for Quilt Camp on Thursday at St. Christopher's on Seabrook Island.("Actually, she has been on restriction due to bad behavior at Sewin' in the Summer"---says Roada Q.)
I live with Beth and 2 very feisty Maine Coon cats who like to wrestle. They look as much like meatloaves as I do.
 Roada only has Rocky, a big loveable Lab,  to contend with.

Last Quilt Camp I got a bit carried away with the Pinot Grigio and was found in the morning snoozing it off with my head stuck in a snacks box.
  How humiliating--I'm usually found under the table, belly up.

Regarding our pins, we're running out of space on our belly bands.  These quilters can only design in 2 dimensions (hence the simple velcro belly bands to attach our pins). Can someone design us a 3D vest???

Here's a pix of me between a rock and a hard place- Beth will only let me have one of our 2 favorite wines.
Next week I plan to stick close to Roada so that at least our excesses will be documented in the same picture.  We do like to party!

That's it for now, but, Look there's Rodie!!!

He's getting ready for his trip to St. Christopher with the 'Frayed Knots' of One Loose Thread.

We will all check-in as we go along...........see ya soon.

Ya know, that Joyce has had me confined for quite sometime now. I know, I was not a very nice rodent there for a while. I tripped Beth, I nibbled on Rodie's ear, I had a little to much wine one night and was not a very nice girl.............but................ gee whiz!!!  can't a rodent have a little fun sometime?? Anyway, Shirley Johnson, Wilma Grubbs and the girls from Pieces & Patches took my plight to 'Rodent Court'. I was found 'slightly disturbed', but the judge (Joyce) said that my sentence would be for 'time served'. Hoo-Ray!!!!!, now I get to go to Market in Houston!!!!!!

I can see me now on the floor of the convention center surrounded by shop owners, designers, quilters, and all the fabric in the whole wide world!!! I can't wait. My application has been FAXed to Shirley and Wilma. All I need now is my medical form filed out and placed in a sealed envelope. You know, in case anything happens and I have an emergency. (I am sure someone will have needle and thread if I need it).

So, stay tuned. The gang from Pieces & Patches will send back progress reports as they go along. I sure hope that the TSA will allow my belly band on the plane. I sure would hate to loose all of my travel pins. If there is a problem, I would imagine that a strip search will be necessary...........Oh My...........

See ya later,
