Re: UFOs: UnFinished Objects

Therapy no longer needed.  I lasted 5 days.

Here are my new projects, started about midnight last night.  How many free patterns have you downloaded and never used?  I decided to use this one, Garden Gate Plaids, from Andover Fabrics.  (Click on the tab called "download" to find the pattern.) I ordered the green background a few minutes ago, and all the rest are in my stash. I started cutting fabric for the blocks last night.







While going through my stash I found a kit that I forgot I had.  It's called "It takes a village", an african proverb.  The kit uses, appropriately, African batik fabrics.  I bought the kit and let it get buried for some reason.  I took a break from cutting to add this blog post!  I need coffee!


I'm amazed, simply amazed how quilting 'feels'.  What a great way to relax and let the cares of the day fall away.  I resolve to never go through life without UFOs.



Last, but not least, I picked out these fabrics for ... drum roll please... my bedroom!  Imagine that?  Making a quilt for myself??? Oooo, what a lovely idea!  This pattern was downloaded from Quilter's Club of America.  This company has a free online forum, I've made some wonderful friends there!  It's a free forum, but if you decide to become a member, you get to download 400 free patterns, get discounts at fabric stores, they mail you free quilting magazines and more!  This is the pattern, and the fabrics I chose from my stash last night!

Skip the flu shot this year!

I found something that works better than the flu shot.  I use this, my children use this and it works! Sip this tea 3 x's the first day you feel your body fighting off something.  It will be gone by evening, but repeat 3 x's the next day to boost your immune system.


Thieves is a mixture of clove, lemon, cinnamon, Eucalyptus and rosemary oils. 2 drops of thieves is enough, it's very potent.  Add more water if you accidently get 3 drops in your cup.

What's the difference between essential oil and the rest?

UFOs: UnFinished Objects

I don't make a good retired person.  You know the feeling you have after handing out the chocolate cake, only to realize that was the last piece and you didn't get one?  Or the dream where you're walking down the aisle at church, with no clothes on?  There's something seriously wrong at my house and I finally found out what is causing this unsettled feeling....

All my UFOs are done.

I'm seriously in need of therapy.

I finished my last UFO 5 days ago:








The photo above shows the detail in the outer border.  It's a large throw size quilt I made for my Aunt Louise. I chose this fabric because of the childrens book illustrations from the 1950s.  She is a wonderful mom, and does so much for her family.


I MUST CUT FABRIC BEFORE I GO NUTS!

Italian Chicken and Potatoes


I found a fabulous recipe online.  I can't believe I didn't think of this myself!  I don't buy packets of zesty Italian dressing, I make my own and the recipe for it is below.

Coincidence?

On March 23rd, 2010, the 77th anniversary of Adolf Hitler's Enabling Act bill (google it), Obama signed into law H.R. 3590 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare.  
Did you see what was hidden inside it?

The copy that I read at frwebgate.access.gpo.gov is filled with legal blah blah blah up until you get to section 5210. It's called "ESTABLISHING A READY RESERVE CORPS".  Obama told us in his 2008 campaign it was coming, hear it for yourself...



Why is this significant?  In a nutshell, President Obama signed into law a bill that gives him the power to create a standing army of soldiers to carry out his direct orders without consulting anyone. Remember being told "we need to pass it so you can find out what it says"?

Why does Obama need his own army? What would he do with it? You know the answer if you've paid any attention to the news, but just in case you don't watch the news I'll give you the answer. Homeland Security Forces, FEMA camps and REX-84.  I'd like to remind you how FEMA transpired 30 years ago...



"FEMA's mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain, and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from, and mitigate all hazards. DISASTER. It strikes anytime, anywhere. " source - FEMA.gov

They have the power to support and help when disaster strikes. Nothin' wrong with that, right?  Until you realize that 30 years ago the government gave FEMA the power to seize complete control of government and suspend the Constitution if that is "deemed necessary". Remember, in the video above, the Speaker of the House shut down the conversation about the constitution?  Before the bill was passed no one wanted to reveal how the constitution would be affected.  We now know the constitution will be thrown out the window.

Remind yourself, that Obama has established his civilian army to operate as he "deems necessary." All he has  to do is "deem it as necessary" is to have an emergency...like an earthquake crisis, a Ferguson, Missouri type of crisis, or right-wing extremists who are out of control.

And that takes us to REX-84.  Rex 84, short for Readiness Exercise 1984, is a plan by the United States federal government to test their ability to detain large numbers of American citizens in case of civil unrest or national emergency. This project was launched under Reagan, and was headed up by Col. Ollie North.
Did you notice how uncomfortable he looks as as he gets grilled by Congress, who then is denied the
answers to the questions they ask North?

In the next video, take a tour of one FEMA camp...



Did you recognize what you saw in this video?  As I watched the tour, I was expecting to see the sign "Treblinka" or "Dachou" come into view.  Why would our government put millions of dollars into remodeling abandoned properties such as this?

Main gate at Auschwitz, 1995

I don't know what all this means.  Someone in my government does, agreed?  Please don't ignore these signs?  All it will take is one major disaster.

Zucchini

Like everyone else who has a garden, my zucchini is overwhelming the garden!  I love this time of year.  I tried something new tonight, grilled zucchini added to our paninis.


Young child who shall remain nameless says (que the tune "Nobody knows the suffering I've seen, nobody knows my sorrow") MOOO-ooooOOOM! There's vegetables in here!!!!


Sourdough is on the left, and an italian brioche is on the cutting board. Yellow and green zucchini from my garden, ham, turkey and the cheeses are either smoked cheddar, swiss or asiago or have all 3! Who wants to come for dinner tomorrow night?

One of my BFFs used zucchini instead of apples in a pie tonight.  What a great idea Cindy!

If I disappear...

Dear reader, Many of you will think my topic today is completely nuts.  But read through to the end, it will make sense eventually.

I began studying Daniel and Revelations in college back in the mid-80s. I'm not a preacher or a prophet by any means and I don't make prophecies. But after watching events unfold over the last 6 years, there is clear evidence that God knew what He was talking about when He wrote warnings over 1000 years ago.  Let me share some evidence?

What is the Hebrew word for violence? .... It is "Kha-mase". The K and the e are silent... say the word again without these two letters.

Written a millenium ago, here it is, in Genesis 6 "11 Now the earth was corrupt in the sight of God, and the earth was filled with violence (Kha-mase). 12 God looked on the earth, and behold, it was corrupt; for all flesh had corrupted their way upon the earth. 13 Then God said to Noah, “The end of all flesh has come before Me; for the earth is filled with violence (Kha-mase) because of them; and behold, I am about to destroy them with the earth." Reader, the Lord used the word Hamas.  It is no coincidence that the group attacking God's people in Israel are called Hamas.  But did you know Hamas is here in America?  Keep reading...

We've all heard the story of Noah and the arc... but did you know the bible describes the return of Jesus to be as in the days of Noah? (Luke 17:26)  Hebrews 11:7 says "By faith Noah, when warned about things not yet seen, in holy fear built an ark to save his family."   Dear reader, know that the warnings of His return were given to us centuries ago.  Please listen and continue reading, with faith?  God will never deceive you, He longs to give you hope and a future!

Jesus is coming back! There are warnings in the bible.  God gave us signs to watch.  Just like in the days of Noah. Please, please ask Him to be your Savior while there's still time. After I disappear, along with millions more, you will still be able to ask Him. But you will still be here to live through the destruction that comes. Hamas is everywhere in America.  People from Hamas were photographed in Ferguson, Missouri just this week.  Did you know seven muslims control the White House? And more muslims poured into America after one of them threw the borders wide open.

For someone just starting to read the bible, I know, it is difficult to understand.  Jump in somewhere and start reading, it doesn't matter where.  Eventually, you'll come to a paragraph that sounds familiar, like you've read that somewhere else.  So you go back to where you saw it before and compare that paragraph with the paragraph you just read.  This is how God talks to you.  Eventually it makes sense, like an idea dawning on you, only when it starts making sense know that is the Lord talking to you.  "Those who seek me find me." Proverbs 8:17  "If you need wisdom, ask our God, and he will give it to you. He will not rebuke you for asking." James 1:5

Accepting Jesus as your Savior is FREE! And He is a gentleman! He will never force himself on you, he waits. He longs to shower you with blessings, but he waits for your invitation. Please don't put off this decision?

Doorbell ringer

WARNING!  If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.

If you give a mouse a cookie...

Has anyone watched what is going on in Muslim nations the last few weeks? Ok, so I know lots of us don't have the time really, but still! I think it's wise to know what goes on around the periphery of my life. It's not like I change my way of life by any means, but it's good to be prepared in case something interrupts my family's daily life. (I'm thinking 9/11 here.) 

This video is less than 5 minutes long. But this is a Kuwaiti preacher speaking to a large audience about America, some he calls "followers of Zion" and other things near and dear to my heart.

I remember when Oliver North was being grilled by a Senate committee in 1987. The Senators were mocking him after North stated he strengthened the security systems around his home as a result of his fear of Osama Bin Laden. They ridiculed him repeatedly over quite a few of his beliefs as I recall.


MEMRI: Kuwaiti Cleric Tareq Al-Suwaidan to Hamas: Do Not Agree to Ceasefire until They Bow Before Us. We Must Contemplate a Plan to Erase them Remember when we gave Kuwait a pretty big 'bail out'?



Just some thoughts as I drink my coffee this morning....

Here's a news story released only a few hours ago:
Russian nuclear-capable bombers 'tested' US air defenses 16 times in last 10 days

Only 2 months ago:
 Russian bombers fly near California but didn't enter our airspace.  Now they're entering our air space?
