Blondie's Pringles ~ Coco, Lexi, Crash & Psycho

So the decision was completely up to Carl, because Xena was his babygirl, and I know no-one else in the world can ever replace her... but he has always wanted to raise a baby dragon, seeing as how 3 of our 4 are rescues, and adults when we took them in...

So darn if they aren't totally like, well as fresnowitte says, P-R-I-N-G-L-E-S-!

So Carl picked out his baby... it'll take a little while to name her, we have to see her personality. Welcome into our hearts, little one... almost 14 inches / 166 grams / crazy hyper personality so far ...

As soon as we got her out of the packaging, she made a bee-line for my son's leg & pancaked out, so CJ got the first real snuggles, he's my little seatwarmer:

Look at that sweet face:

Ooh, soft, what's this?

Yum, salad... nom nom nom...
111210-bg07.jpg

Hey, lady, I cleaned my plate, can I have more?...

Oh, wait, ...
um, what else was I gonna say? ...
Oh, yeah,

There's MORE!

I had to crop that first picture, look really closely...

Really?

Barbara was worrying about finding this little guy a special home, and Carl fell in love with him/her too... so he's our "little guy/gal"... Quasi now looks huge, and Crash looks like Godzilla compared to these two!

So meet little guy / 60 grams / 11 inches ... so laid back, just watches everything going on, and eats and eats and eats (hand-fed salad today :mrgreen: )

Just a little stress going from Cali to Ohio...

Bath time! This little one loves to swim already!

Ooh, what's this?

Ooh, what's up here -- slowly progressed up the branches, then just watched us and all the activity in the room for about an hour...

The quilt is just amazing, Damn( I mean Dawn,lol). How many hours do you think you have in that work of art?
Loving the flowers! Geraniums are one of my favorites, but the BLUE Hibiscus :shock: I have never seen one, it is gorgeous.

What an absolutely amazing quilt. They will love it. No wonder your neck muscles were sore, puts a strain on all your upper body muscles. The butterflies are stunning. You are VERY talented indeed!

Crash is adorable in his pink blankie, you can tell that he loves it. :D

yeah, go figure ~ I have lots of blue blankies for him... and he runs outta them like his butts on fire. WTH? Dude, blue used to be your favorite color. Then it was orange. Now he's drawn to pink. I give up!

I hope you have a long arm machine to quilt that big thing! Looks awesome!
actually, I have a mid-arm ~ 10-inch throat, I dream of a sweet 16 or a nice 18, but... well, everyone who quilts and wants a long arm dreams of the ultimate Gammill LOL... Anyway, my midarm got possessed and started running the machine at hyperspeed. I mean it ~ 1400 stitches per minute! C'mon, I'm pretty good, but I'm NOT THAT GOOD! No amount of cappuccino could have let me keep up. So we bypassed the speed control, and jimmy rigged my footpedal. That was too clunky, it was a totally different body movement, so I said THWI (sure you can figure that one out)... and took it off the frame and finished it the old fashioned way... stuff all those layers thru the sewing machine and do it inch by inch.

Needless to say, it's done, wish I could enter it in a county fair, I've never entered a quilt like that yet. I've left that up to my niece if she chooses. :)

BTW I have 118 hours into the quilt that I kept track of, there are a few hours that I didn't track because I was tired and was moving slower and slower. It's a labor of love.

Hi Dawn, that quilt is a great beauty, maybe your niece will let you enter it into a show, it would win hands down! You're just awesome.

The pic of Crush in pink was so cute, Our beardies have soft towels for blankies, & also for bath towels. My mom gave me a huge bag full of towels she didn't want & all in good shape, and our beardies just love them. One day I'll get an order with you for your blankies & they can be wrapped up in them for bed.

Thanks for sharing that beautiful quilt with all of us, 118 hours & some uncounted, that quilt is now priceless!

Hugs
Deb

We have an HQ 16 but neither my mom nor I know how to use it very well :'(. That is definitely a goal for the summer because I have close to a dozen quilts I want to put on there. I just finished the blocks for a really pretty (in my opinion, anyway) batik. I cannot wait to finish it, I just adore the colors in it!

Lol my mom's only grandkids are Lilly and Jackie, although I believe you are younger than her! She keeps saying we'll put another practice quilt in and learn, but I'll believe it when I see it lol.

Okay I'll get new measurements tomorrow...I think Lexi is in the lead on the weight though, but will see.
Know all about the constant shed...Lola is either shedding or preparing.
She's shed more in the past year than I have ever seen one of my beardies shed. LOL

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
