Friday Pretties

It is 4:24 am and I can't get back to sleep. I've been awake since 3:30. The nice thing is I can always visit blogs and find that someone else must be awake too since they just posted on their blog. Of course I know that some of you are on the other side of the world and therefore it is not very early in the morning for you. Still comforting, no matter what.

I was just going through some blogs and realized it is time for Friday Pretties. I am going to look through my pictures to see what I can find.

And boy, are these some random photos.
The first is a quilt I made for my sister which also happened to be the very first quilt I made. It was a sampler class and when finished, the teacher told us we could make anything after that.

Second picture is my hotel room in Paris. I went there the spring after I retired. I can't believe it was almost 4 years ago. The room was tiny but I loved the red walls. It was so French.

Last picture was taken in Frenchtown, NJ on Bastille Day a few years ago. Just love sunflowers!

Almost forgot, you can see other Friday Pretties if you go to Joyce's blog, I Love Pretty Little Things.

(Note to self - must figure out how to post links in my blog. Maybe I'll do that now.)

Hope I can go back to sleep soon. Have to pick my giveaway winners in a few hours.


  1. i couldn't figure out how to do a link for a really long time either, next to the text color box theres a link button. you highlight the text you want to link, click the link button then paste your url info there. Hopefully that makes sense
