Donna Seegmueller Creations

Dec 14th, 2011 | By | Category: Sewing Circle News

Donna Seegmueller sent me these images and I had to share them. How cute and what a great idea. Love it! Here is what she did…

Donna: I want to share with you a creation I made using Debi Hubbs design, The Picnic, which I purchased at the Quilt Loft in Albany Oregon during the “sew Oregon” event in October 2011. Using a pattern (Simplicity Quick& Quilted project, 1981) from something I made many years ago, I adapted the design to create a picnic map and two placemats.

I think it will make a perfect Christmas gift for friends who love crows and watermelon.





Plant people

Dec 12th, 2011 | By | Category: Artists I Love

Recently I visited (with a family member who I am not allowed to discuss on this website but I will volunteer that this certain family member was mildly disgruntled over attending the garden with me but seeing as it was my birthday grumbled along which actually made the garden a bit more entertaining.) Anyway, I like a good plant and clever landscape but when I saw this I was really impressed. I don’t know who made these, or how, and am too lazy to look it up but here they are. Plant people…

A dancing couple.

A high stepping lady.

And I guess when those dancers get thirsty they have a cocktail waitress ready to serve them.



Tudfwich P. Thompson

Dec 12th, 2011 | By | Category: News

I was just going to show you my latest turkey that is one of the stars in my new ecards.  Tudfwich P. Thompson.  This is him here…

And this is him on a bad day…..

Anyway  while I was thinking of names I remembered my alias that I use in order to travel freely and not cause a big stir.  (Fame can be so taxing.)   I thought I would offer my special system I used to create my alias in case you too want to go about unnoticed.  Here is the formula so you can make yours…

1. Use the third letter of your first name to determine your NEW first name.    Mine is B.    Example: d e B i        B= Doombah

a = snickle
b = doombah
c = goober
d = cheesey
e = crusty
f = greasy
g = dumbo
h = farcus
i = dorky
j = doofus
k = funky
l = boobie
m = sleezy
n = sloopy
o = fluffy
p = stinky
q = slimy
r = dorfus
s = snooty
t = tootsie
u = dipsy
v = sneezy
w = liver
x = skippy
y = dink y
z = zippy

2. There will be two halves of your last name. For the first half  use the second letter of your last name: Mine is U.   Example: hUbbs = Chuckle

a = dippin
b = feather
c = batty
d = burger
e = chicken
f = barffy
g = lizard
h = waffle
i = farkle
j = monkey
k = flippin
l = fricken
m = bubble
n = rhino
o = potty
p = hamster
q = buckle
r = gizzard
s = lickin
t = sn ickle
u = chuckle
v = pickle
w = hubble
x = dingle
y = gorilla
z = g irdle

3. And for the last step. Use the third letter of your last name to determine the second half of your new last name: For example: huBbs= boob

a = butt
b = boob
c = face
d = nose
e = hump
f = breath
g = pan ts
h = shorts
i = lips
j = honker
k = head
l =  tush
m = chunks
n = dunkin
o = brains
p = biscuits
q = toes
r = doodle
s = fanny
t = sniffer
u = sprinkles
v = frack
w = squirt
x = humperdinck
y = hiney
z = juice

And now you see how I can go about without causing any attention.

Warmest Blessings,

Doombah Chuckleboob
