I Like Thursday #146

Welcome to this week's list of likes! I liked finding these solar lanterns in the garage,they are pretty in the daylight, but sadly they didn't work after all this time... still they feel festive!
My little angel also came out of the garage, joining the pretty shade lovers. I like a porch, and the new outdoor rug makes the sitting area feel cozy.
I even found a little purple blossom on the bean plant yesterday, so I'm on my way to vegetables.

I like Milo having friends and play dates. If I could set one up each day I would. I enjoy chatting with the humans while the pups play. This week he met the cutest 9 month old black lab and we walked together. I liked having a walking mate for a day.

I liked going to the retiree's weekly group and knowing most of the people.

I loved my art quilt group meeting yesterday. It is a small but mighty group, very talented funny and nice. It was nice to get feedback on my two latest quilts, Orange lady, and the painted birds.

I like painting every morning to start the day. I'm enjoying so many teachers on youtube and am currently obsessed with Shayda Campbell and her lessons. This is one of her drawing and painting a planner for June 2019
I have learned to draw people, flowers, leaves and do more graphic work from her.


I like historical fiction, and this was a great page of the most popular historical fiction in the last few years...  https://www.goodreads.com/blog/

So much to read, isn't there?

I liked going to a local quilt show and chatting with other quilters. Want to see a couple of the quilts?
a cow caught my eye of course
pretty aqua background on the double wedding ring pattern
love hexies and bright colors with applique!
Milo's Moment
I like playing "chase me" with Daddy at night around the coffee table! I am always faster! I cut back and forth, then change it up by running thru the chairs (he's too big, so I get away!) I like my whimzee chewies every night at 8. I just don't understand why I only get one... I do all the work around here. I have to entertain the pawrents, guard the yard from walkers and cars, chew up paper, walk those two several times a day... I should get two whimzees. Right? Am I right?
I liked one of our neighbors who said I really lost weight... I did! I lost at least two small poodles worth of hair on Sunday's grooming caper, heh heh.

Please visit Mama's friends keeping their lists of likes for the week too!

  2. Hi LeeAnna! That hexie quilt looks a lot like your header on your blog - you could have made that. And I have to agree with Milo - he really should get two whimzees. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. Your porch looks like such an inviting place to sit and relax. I haven't even brought out my cushions yet for the front porch. It's either raining or chilly or raining or windy or raining . . .

  17. I admire Milo's logic about why he deserves 2 treats. He does have a lot of responsibility. Orange lady does have a delightfully quirky expression. Glad that your art work is bringing you pleasure and also glad you are meeting more people.

  24. I have a quilt exactly like the Double Wedding Ring! Same colors and all. I was helping my husband's aunt move to another state. I went in her garage and saw a pile if blankets on the floor. When I looked closer there was 2 quilts! I ask what she was going to do with them and she was using them to wrap her furniture and was then going to throw them away! Needless to say they came home with me. Her mother had made them.
