Table runner and Dawson's quilt

Hi friends!
I made something yesterday! I had seen table runners on this blog
Sara  at My sewing Room And loved them , So decided to make me one kind of like her's.
I made it long enough to fit my dining room  table .
It's hard to get a picture because it's long.
This shows it better!
It's simple and long !
I love this fabric but it's a bit busy so nothing would go with it but solids.
Got it sandwiched and it's on top of the machine to be quilted. Blurry picture!
I sewed the John Deer hub caps down to on Dawson's quilt.
Still got to do some more work on it so it looks more like a john deer.
Have a good one

My week end!

Hi friends!
Played with Dawson Brair's quilt over the weekend.
That's what they are naming Bentleys baby brother.
Made these from fabric that Dawn sent me. Made two more burp cloth's.
Cut some strips for my handstitched block for Q. Bee's , we meet on the13 th of next month.
we are making 6 inch log cabins!
Makes you appreciate your sewing machine!
You are suppose to make a line on the back of each piece and then your seam has to match both sides!!!
You get tired fast!
Makes you really sorry for those women that makes quilt by hand.
But you always need to learn new things, Right?
It will teach me patience!
Have a good one

Friday Finish

Hi friends!
I finished it !
I think i started it last Sat.
So it was a fast quilt , thanks to Dawn for making the body of it!
Hope the next one goes fast to.
Look how dead every thing is? Severe drought!
The colors didn't show up in the sun!
Way more quilting then i usually do on one!
I didn't get any sewing done yesterday because Tommy had a apt. with his cancer surgeon
He said every thing looks great but back in six month, after that it will be once a year for a cat scan.
Then we went to Jim's here in town to eat before we shopped for groceries
I told him we would buy less if we weren't hungry but my list was short and the buggy got full any way...
If the winner last week doesn't get in touch with me today we will pull another winner. Ronda D.?
So no sewing after we finally got home.
Have a great week end

Quilting, a win and a ruler

Hi friends!
I just wrote a blog and it disappeared!
I can't find it any where.
It should be saved but it isn't!!!
Yesterday i quilted for a while but didn't finish.
This morning while drinking  our pot of coffee on the back porch the mailman brought me this.
It's from Martha at Here . I had won a giveaway on her blog and it's coffee themed.
Look at that great packaging, she included a pattern to. Thanks so much Martha.
Sis came over and brought me a ruler that our teacher at Q. Bees had that has ridges . Sis was going to quilt market and i asked her to look for me one. It has ridges on the bottom to hold your fabric.
I will let you know if it's better.

Hi friends!
Have you seen this?
Does this mean we wont get to tag other blogs of our friends?
It's how it reads to me.

Sable's Quilt and Christmas Fabric

Hi friends!
I finished the corners and sandwiched Sable's Quilt.
Isn't it pretty!
I ironed back and front and starched the front so it will hold up good when i quilt it.
This is my one to 5 yards of Christmas fabric.
This is my fat quarters and half yards, mostly what  was left after i make a quilt.
After i made these pictures i found three more large pieces.
I guess because these are so busy they just don't go with each other.
I want to make a Christmas quilt with out buying more. Need to use up some of my fabric's.
Since Julie Rose HERE and Dawn  ,HERE sent me fabric i am running out of space.
So i need to use up some!
Or get me some else to store it in?
Have a good one

Sable's quilt

Hi friends!
I laid out all kinds of fabric to see what i could use to make Dawn's baby quilt a little larger , maybe a border?
Pink and brown goes together , doesn't it?
Then i found this!
Has most of the colors in it! But i didn't like it right up against the squares.
So i added a small white border first!
I like that better!

Love it!
I am thinking about trying to miter the corners to improve the look!
Have a good one

Making "John Deer"

Hi friends!
Didn't get much done yesterday because we both felt bad so just took it easy.
This rag weed is making us sick and it want rain to help a little!
It's going to be john deer tractors, i promise you!
Just need a little more doing to get it finished.
I feel better today so maybe i will get to sewing !
Thanks to Flonase ! I hate to take medicine  of any kind!
I will have to look at Tommy's tractor to see what else i can put on the tractor.
I think i am going to go around each one of these panels with two or three inch squares .
I hope to work on the quilt top that Dawn sent me for a baby girl this weekend to.
Have a great week end

Ragweed Fog!

Hi friends!
Just had to make some bibs from some fabric sent to me from Dawn.  HERE
Aren't they cute?
Don't forget my giveaway! HERE
I also did a little on Bentley's little brother's quilt. But not a lot!
I decided i wanted to make a Christmas quilt last night and pulled out lots of cuts of fabric big enough to use in a quilt but i can't find two that i like together . You know i love Christmas fabric's and have a lot but it seems like nothing sparks !!!
I think my thinker has gone away with the ragweed growing outside.
We have felt bad for over a week and just dragging around.
Good News Kim is coming home Friday! Dawn, we will carry her pillow case to her this weekend.
Have a good day

Busy Week

Hi friends!
Don't forgot the giveaway!HERE
It just lasts until Friday!
This was made from some of the fabric i ordered from Connecting Threads, it's in the clearance section.
I made two , one for each g-g.
The stacks are really growing!
I added two little caps and a bib and burp cloth set that Dawn  sent me. She blogs   HERE
And she sent me the cutest things for our coming g-g's.
She did that last year to and i gave them to Aubrey for Braley.
I have a problem! Every time i work on their blankets my nose starts itching and wont stop!
It's this yarn!
Tommy brought the treadmill back in and then took it apart to check for rats, he got the fan running and it hasn't run for a while.
I delivered the Artic Star quilt that i made on my other blog.    HERE   That's the new owner on the left and Tonia , our youngest on the right.
So far a busy week!
