Lily Quilt/#AtoZ

The April A to Z Blog Challenge is an annual blogging event in which participants blog every day (except Sundays) one post for each letter of the alphabet for the entire month. My theme for the year will be “Quilts and Ozark Slang.” So gitchur cuppa coffee or sodapop, grab a pilluh, and sit a spell.

So this is spring and I’m definitely ready for some cut flowers. A little early for day lilies in Missouri, so why not bring some inside with a quilt block?


In this book I’m using for the Challenge, there are a few floral quilt blocks. I chose this one probably because every sampler should have at least one floral choice, in my opinion. And also there is a particular little girl who spends her days with me named Lilly and I just thought it was the perfect choice for this year. She’s a sweetheart and this will let me always think of her smiles and laughter once she has headed off to kindergarten. (but not for a couple years at least)


For today’s Ozark slang I’m sharing a saying I’m 100% sure I heard my Great Grandmother mumbling . “Look at that Yahoo!” would have been her reaction to seeing someone drive down our country gravel road at a high rate of speed. Calling them a yahoo was a ladylike attempt at swearing in her case. She was not impressed at all and had no use for such nonsense.

There are many more wonderful blogs this year that I hope you can spend a couple minutes reading. All you have to do is click here and select something that interests you. To read about the A to Z Challenge and what we are all about, click here.


Pulling the Plug/Sunday Sampler

Introducing my newest model for the Etsy shop. We were just about ready for breakfast bright and early one morning last week when I took advantage of a wide awake young lady in a very happy mood. Perfect recipe for some Fun photos!

Special thanks to her parents for giving me the chance to feature this little princess!            Love That Face!!

Thanks for stopping in for this week’s Sunday Sampler!!
