This, That, and Throw Back Thursday

This month marks Queenie’s birthday of a handful, or would that be a bushel full of years on this lovely planet.
My love, Honey Man gifted me with these beautiful roses
And Arizona gifted me
With a bumper crop of bougainvillea.
Even my commute from the mundane was bedecked with abundant blooms.
Queenie and Sir Owen the Innova completed the Queenie Mother’s two wall hangings…
Celebrating love and springtime.
Next up on the quilting hit parade is the Queenie Mother’s embroidery flower bee quilt.
Full of a variety of lovely blooms,
Petite nosegays,
And bountiful bouquets.
On the fur-kid front, that Minnie Delicioius never ceases to entertain…
I call this snap, “Sphinx Delicious, Side Orientation” :o)

And now throw back Thursday
The Queenie Mother emailed this little blast from the past.
Early, 1970’s my very first sewing machine.
The beginning of Queenie’s sewing career!

Until next time,
Have a great day!

Spring is in the Air

Spring is dawning at Queenie’s end of the internet.
The little orange tree that could…
And the mighty lemon tree
Are sending forth blossoms and the first perfumed breezes were detected just last week.
Queenie loves this time of year full of orange blossom fragrance and longer sun filled days…
Complete with Delicious sunbathing (a.k.a. napping) in their backyard kingdom.
Spring also brings the Gilbert Historical Museum’s annual Quilt Show.
The Queenie Mother has the beautiful Arizona Byways quilt on display. 
Tiz the first quilt we’ve displayed at the museum’s show.
I continue quilting many projects with sir Owen the Innova…
Expanding and perfecting Queenie’s quilting prowess
In honor of Spring and in celebration of Saint Patrick’s Day, Queenie treated herself to pedicure…
For Spring and flip flops are truly around the corner.

Until next time…
Have a great day!

The Big 6

This weekend Queenie and HoneyMan adventured to Tucson, Arizona to celebrate the big 6.
That’s right our 6th anniversary of wedded bliss!
We stayed at the La Posada Del Valle Bed & Breakfast Inn. 
A lovely oasis just around the corner from the University of Arizona...
Chalk full of Santa Fe style charm,
And southwest treasures.
It was built in the 1920’s with true adobe construction, none the less.  
The cherry on the top of this most excellent anniversary celebration was attending the Chris Thile concert.
A genius mandolin virtuoso who amazes and thoroughly entertains.
This entire magical get-away was orchestrated by none other than the best husband in the whole wide world!
I’m one lucky Queenie for sure!

Until next time,
Have a great day!

This, That, And The Other Things

Here we are two-thirds the way through January. The month is simply whizzing by.
Queenie’s Christmas town has faded into the mist until next year when it will once again magically appear like Brigadoon.
The Queenie Mother’s Blue Birds in Spring quilt is done, finished, complete!
A modern take on traditional red work,
Brimming with Spring time joy.
Just what many of us need in the deepest of winter time, especially those in the middle of the polar vortex.
Queenie continues her quilty sketches,
During her lunch hour at the mundane,
Working many variations on a theme.
Then experimenting with Sir Owen the Innova,
Working up samples of quilting from ideas in the sketches.
Queenie really likes this frolicking gem…
An avenue to be adventured down some more me thinks.

Until next time,
Have a great day!
