1929 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan

Well, my DSL internet issues are resolved!  The AT&T man put a "whole house" filter in my junction box and now, it's fast as the speed of light!  Wow!  So with that issue resolved, I thought you would enjoy seeing photos of Bubba's Model A:

Model A 1

Model A 5

There are a few more photos over on my Flickr site if you'd like to see them. 

Yes, we like all sorts of old things!  Bubba has been working on this car for years and it's been awhile since I posted some photos.  It runs now and most of it is painted now.  He's done such a great job and I can't wait until it's totally road worthy so we can take it to some local car shows! 

We plan to dress the part!  I have a poodle skirt to make but first want to add sequins to the poodle.  Bubba will wear his leather motorcycle jacket.  It will be so much fun!  But it'll be a little while yet.  Still a lot of tweaking to do.

In other news, I'm pleased to announce that I will be participating in Beverly's PINK SATURDAY!  I'm so excited about this!  I already have my pink things chosen!  I've been wanting to participate in Pink Saturday for awhile but had to get my internet issues taken care of first.  If you've never heard of Pink Saturday, please visit Beverly at How Sweet The Sound to learn more about it.

For those of you who are interested in my Art Quilting 101 Tutorial, Part 2 will be available here tomorrow.  I hope you find it helpful.  If anyone has started an Art Quilt with the help of my tutorial, please leave a comment here.  If you have a blog, website or Flickr site, please post a link and I'll mention here on my blog.

Finally for today (and speaking of pink) check out these new pretties from Kathi:

Pink Cat Earrings

They almost didn't make it into the shop!  Kathi brought them this morning when she came for coffee and I fell in love with them!  They are gorgeous!  I mean honestly, what's better than pink kitties?!!!

Gosh I'd love to have a ride in that car (actually I'd be pretty happy just to SIT in it!). He's doing a fantastic job.

OMG, Pam, I love old cars, too! I learned to drive a stick shift on a '47 Chevy. He used to spend hours fixing it up..... I love the smell of Bondo in the morning, LOL..... later it became mine, but we eventually sold it. When I was marketing director at a local mall, we used to have car shows ("Cruise Nights") at least one Friday per month from April through October. And we had an old fashioned ice cream parlor in the mall - you and Bubba would've fit right in!!

OK, what else.... am eagerly awaiting Part II of your art quilt tut. And those kitty earrings are to die for. Gotta go check the shop!! I've also, like you, been considering Pink Saturday (have followed it since its inception). But.... excuses, excuses. But it's a great way to meet new people.

Hugs,
Cathy

A Whole House Filter....I am going to talk to Comcast about one as there are times I just want to chuck my computer out the window...s-l-o-w it can be at times.

I love your vintage sedan...my husband is crazy and I mean crazy over old cars....we went to the museum in Indiana and it was fascinating to look at these old beauties...you could imagine the ladies in their touring clothes and bonnets and how dapper the men were and proud!

A poodle skirt! I had one, too, and wish I had saved it....be sure and post a picture of you all dressed up and ready for a ride!

What a pretty car, Pam! I love such old cars a lot. You'll have a lot of fun taking it for a ride and presenting it at the car shows.
Have a lovely day!
Hugs,

I love the pink kitty earrings, too! Looks like Kathy beat me to them LOL. I'll be on the lookout for more kitty earrings.

Your Hubby has done a fantastic job on his car! Ken and I went to a vintage truck and hot rod show up the country last weekend, and saw a few like yours. I am not surprised when people say they take years to fix them up.
