Is this me?

Today Ms. Goodneedle shared a web site that explains what your name means. (The web site is: What's in a Name?
This is what my name means???? Could this be me???

You are confident, self assured, and capable. You are not easily intimidated.You master any and all skills easily. You don't have to work hard for what you want.You make your life out to be exactly how you want it. And you'll knock down anyone who gets in your way!You are a very lucky person. Things just always seem to go your way.And because you're so lucky, you don't really have a lot of worries. You just hope for the best in life.You're sometimes a little guilty of being greedy. Spread your luck around a little to people who need it.You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.You tend to be pretty tightly wound. It's easy to get you excited... which can be a good or bad thing.You have a lot of enthusiasm, but it fades rather quickly. You don't stick with any one thing for very long.You have the drive to accomplish a lot in a short amount of time. Your biggest problem is making sure you finish the projects you start.You are friendly, charming, and warm. You get along with almost everyone.You work hard not to rock the boat. Your easy going attitude brings people together.At times, you can be a little flaky and irresponsible. But for the important things, you pull it together.You are relaxed, chill, and very likely to go with the flow.You are light hearted and accepting. You don't get worked up easily.Well adjusted and incredibly happy, many people wonder what your secret to life is.
See what your name mean!!!!

Another busy weekend

As you can see Bentley has decided to drive/ride the new John Deer lawn mower. Yes, Pop is going to make Bentley a platform for him to ride on. When we had our beach house, we had a golf cart that did not go anywhere without "B". He would ride in the cart for hours if we would let him. He must now think he has a new ride at his inland home! This weekend found me hosting my dear friend, (Big Al) daughter bridesmaids luncheon (with another dear friend). About 22 of us gathered at the Salem Tavern in Old Salem for a fun filled few hours.
Here you find, Big Al, the bride to be, DF, her daughter (flower girl), myself and my DD.
At the luncheon I presented the B-to-B with Memory Blocks for her wedding. Each of those who were present signed their block so they would not have to do theirs at the wedding.

The wedding takes place in 2 weeks at Ocean Isle, NC on the beach at 7pm.

Soon A & M will be celebrating their wedding, Gee how times flies.

What 52 days!

So much left to do, but it will have to wait until after Anna's wedding.

It's her time in the sun!

Check, check, & check!

First of all, Bama & Bentley have finally met. Things went well! Bentley did not know what to think about this strange dog in his backyard at first.
Before long they will be big buds, if Adam has anything to do with it.
1. B-O-M Club - Month 7 - Rocky Mountain Puzzle - check
2. B-O-M Club - Month 8 - Contrary Wife - check almost!
(the border still needs to be added, but the block is finished before 3rd Tuesday of the month and the new block is handed out at LQS)

3. Handies for soon to be brides for their wedding - check
4. 200 Signature blocks for my son & his brides wedding day - check
The list is slowly getting shorter!

But I'm sure before THE DAY there will be more things added to the list.

And finally, I'm enjoying the wind, surf & sand of

Virginia Beach, Va.

DH has the Virginia Propane Gas Association convention here. I got to ride along and enjoy the beach for a few days.

(Of course I'll have to help entertain customers & wife in the evening, but the days are mine!)

July 1st? It can't be!

Oh my it's July 1st and I still have not completed my B-O-M blocks for May & June. What is to become of me and all the UFOs I need to complete.

I'm trying to get 200 Signature "Sigee" blocks made for my sons wedding, and I guess this is what is at the top of my list to get completed first.
(I do have 100 finished, so I'm half way to goal!)
The wedding is under the 3 month mark, it will
be here before I know it.
Oh, I have five Clutch Purses to make for the Bridesmaids before the Bridesmaids Luncheon also! Future D-I-L asked if I would make them using fabric to match the BM dresses. Of course I said "Yes".
Gee, it is time to stop this, do my supper dishes and head upstairs to my Sweat Shop (my sons name for my sewing area) and get the sewing machine humming!
