Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What can the average citizen do to honor a military veteran and/or those currently serving?
Never, ever take for granted the freedom they fought for.
2. Besides a flag what is something you own that is red, white and blue?
The log cabin quilt I’m currently piecing is red, white and blue.
3. Does love really conquer all?
Yes, sooner or later Love really conquers all.  Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins. 1st Peter 4:8
4. Strawberry shortcake or blueberry pie?
Definitely strawberry shortcake – with whipped cream on top, of course.  I’m not much of a fan of blueberries … I’ll eat them if they’re in something where their flavor is more subtle (like pancakes or muffins).
5. Do you share personal stuff with your hairdresser?
I guess it depends on how you define “personal”.  Private stuff - no.  But things about me, my life – yes.
6. Does money lead to selfishness?
I don’t think money itself does … but the love of money can.  For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.  1st Timothy 6:10a
7. What piece of furniture in your home most needs replacing or refinishing?
We just had our end tables refinished, so we don’t have any furniture that needs refinishing.  Our hardwood floors need to be refinished, but I don’t guess that counts as furniture.  I would like to have our couch replaced or reupholstered (could that be considered refinishing?).  The couch is still in excellent condition, but esthetically the upholstery is showing the couch’s age (we bought it almost 20 years ago).  Of course, if I replace/reupholster the couch, that means I’ll have to replace/reupholster the chairs, too.  <sigh>
8. Insert your own random here.
I sewed together rows of my log cabin quilt yesterday … I got 9 of the 10 rows put together.  Next up is piecing together the rows to make the quilt top (i.e. flimsie in quilt talk).  Hopefully I’ll have a picture to share soon.


  1. Love the log cabin block that you are working on. #'s 3 & 6 have great answers!

  2. Your quilt is going to be beautiful.

  3. My hardwood floors need refinishing too. I dread just the idea of moving all the furniture. ugh.

    I love your quilt!!

  4. I can hardly wait to see pictures of your finished quilt, Kathy! I am definitely a strawberry shortcake kind of gal, too!

  5. A log cabin quilt?! I bet that's going to be fabulous! I'm about to have a fit for some strawberry shortcake after Joyce planted the seed...LOL

  6. That quilt will be gorgeous! I admire all of you who are creative and make things because I am just not at all! Our furniture is only about 10 years old but it is leather and our animals have scratched it.......they say they can do something to fix that but I figure as long as the dogs are around why do that??

  7. I liked how you answered those questions with verses. That is nice. I am so glad you got so much work done on your quilt. I really do like those colors. I hope you have a great Wednesday!

  8. Bet that patriotic quilt will look so homey!

  9. That is going to be a beautiful quilt! I had my couch and chairs reupholstered, it was a lot cheaper than replacing them, and as they say, "they had good bones" Have a happy day.

  10. I'm the same way, if I got new chairs, then I need a new couch and love seat. I also need a new matress! haha

    Loving your quilt piece. Can't wait to see it all together.

  11. Can't wait to see that finished quilt! Isn't that how it always goes? Fix/replace the couch, then what about the chairs etc? haha story of my life. Hope you are having a good week!

  12. You've got a couch that's almost 20 years old, and it's still in good condition? Wow! That's great! So often furniture just doesn't seem to hold up anymore :(

    Your quilt is looking pretty :)

  13. I bet your quilt will be beautiful. sandie

  14. I love your blog background. I shared that verse too :)

  15. Enjoying your answers today. Your quilt is so pretty. I love to use pound cake for my strawberry shortcake. I like to let it soak up some milk. YUM! I would say that your couch counts if it needs reupholstering. Enjoy the rest of your week.

  16. That quilt is going to be beautiful. Can't wait to see it all set together. Enjoyed your answers.
    until next time... nel

  17. I have to agree with you about money; its how we view it whether we are selfish with it or selfless and be generous with it. Money is money. We assign too much of a value to it. Your quilt will be so very nice!!


  18. Our #1s were very similar!

  19. Can't wait to see the finished quilt. I have told daughters many times -money isn't evil-the love of money is and there is the difference.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
