Our Weekend

Hi friends!
My milk can block!
Made this over the weekend .
Yesterday we went to Wetumpka Ala. for my cousins funeral. went with my brother , his wife and my sister. It was kind of crowded in , small back seat, but we made it in four hours, spent nearly 3 hours with the family and then made that four hour trip back. I though I would be hurting all day but I think this warm weather helped.
Arthritis doesn't like cold weather and takes it out on you.
It was sunny all day highs in the 70ths. Of course we were  near Montgomery Ala.
That's where my Aunt Pauline lives , her son lived in Wetumpka. Most of the family  went that lives here and Atlanta.
Fran will really miss him , they were married 46 years. His sis and mother  will to.
We were zombies by the time we got back .
Maybe I will get some sewing done today.

Q-Bees Metting

Hi friends!
We had Q-Bees last night , first time in the new year.
These are Vicky's, we have seen the one on the bottom before.
She hand stitches every thing!
This is the one she is working on now.
Our teacher holding a quilt she is hand quilting for some one.
This is Charlotte's that she is working on.
Our Teacher brought battening and a tote full of Fabric that she was giving away. I got some of that. She gets rid of small pieces where I save them for scrap quilts.
The battening was so every one would have the same kind in our quilt for this years quilt show. We are each doing two blocks and hand quilting them together with sashing.
I had some just like it so I didn't get any  battening or the muslin  because I had some of that to.
Finally got my book this morning!
I ordered this on the first and it's just now getting here!
Going to put it to good use! Making me a quilt!
Dawn and her gang  will hopefully have close to the same quilt.
Have a good one

Microwave cozy's

Hi friends!
Back to making microwave cozy's.
Amy  want's one so I will make her a few.
I made this one first and cut out two of the red bottomed one's.
I will mail it to her next week.
She should get her pillow shams today if the postal service is right.
We carried Tonia's and Abby to them when we went to pick up our meds. They both work at the drugstore.
My daughter has the flu and Missy was sick all week to. She spent last week at the hospital with Ed and came home sick.
Makes you worry about  going to hospitals!
Some one in our area died from the flu and it's bad right now . The flu shot they said was a good match but people that got the shot are getting the flu to.
We have been staying at home more because it's so bad this year.
Stay healthy

Sewing for fun

Hi friends!
I mailed these off yesterday, she should get them tomorrow. Looked at my phone for the date and it said it was the 2th when it was the 10? I turned it off and back on and it didn't help a bit! so I guess I will have to reset it.
Got a message last night from Jo my cousin in Acworth that my cousin in lower Ala. was not expected to live through the night.
He died around 4 this morning , His sis sent me a message on face book about 4:45, yes I was up!
I woke up at 4. Couldn't go back to sleep thinking about Buddy and hating it for his wife Fran.
So many deaths lately, maybe because we are getting old.
I will show you what this is after I give it away.
Using four patches sent to me by Dawn and her friend Jackie. Dawn blogs at sewyouquilt2
She is hosting a vintage farm girl quilt-a-long on her blog.
I ordered my book and it should get here some time! I ordered it on the first of this month.
Have a good one

Hi friends!
I worked yesterday on blocks for our quilt for Q-bees. We haven't had a meeting in two months, took Christmas off for all our Christmas sewing.
I though I would stick with tried and true blocks.
One of these plus the top one?
I also did some fun sewing yesterday!
I made two little doll pillows for Gracie and Shania. They are planning on having breakfast with us Sat.
Then I made pillow cases for their pillows.
Gracie's is a little bigger than Shania's.
Have a good one

My Weekend

Hi friends!
My strange looking cow!
She gives milk chocolate!
Haven't finished her up but will do that later.
I made Tommy a "quilt" to cover his face with when he went out side during this freeze.
I closed it in the back with Velcro.
I did some more work on Amy's pillow shams ! May be tomorrow before I send them off to her.
A sneak peek!
We got a little snow!
I haven't heard from Jessica, I will give her a few more days. If I don't hear from her I will pull another name.
Have a good one

Amy's Shams

Hi friends!
Well today is Amy's birthday!
I didn't like the way I did it at first so I redid the front to this.
Started on the other one last night.
I will get it into the mail Monday! A little late!.
This is how I did it at first but didn't really like it!
It's the same color but show's up differently in these two pictures.
With the flash it shows up green but is more of a turquoise.
Maybe I can finish them today but we are suppose to get  snow so I want be going any where until next week.
Tommy just hollowed so it's already snowing!
Hope it's not to bad!

Next Month

Hi friends!
One of my first quilts !
Went to get new glasses yesterday and it's my cataracts instead!
So I go to see about surgery next month.
I will have to sew fast to get finished with a few things because I don't know whether it will stop me from sewing or not.
I know from Tommy's they don't want you around lint  or dust or any thing that could get in your eyes, so I may have to give it up for a while.
Another picture of the four cozy's  I made for Tonia and Abby.
No sewing yesterday because my eyesight wasn't good until late.
I did get the tree down and all the decorations put up. And some cleaning done.
I may go crazy if I can't read or sew after the surgery because t.v. is something I hate.
I watch the news and N.C.I.S. and that's about it.
I will have to lesson to my kindle!
At least I have that!

Hi friends!
I made two more littles  each for Abby and Tonia last night.
This morning I went to have my eyes dilated, so excuse the mistakes!

Microwave cozys

Hi friends!
Yesterday we were heating something up in the microwave and I only had one small cozy so naturally I had to make another. Then Tommy said "You should make my sis and her hubby one " so I did!
I made them one big and two smalls.
Then I remembered telling Tonia I would make her a big one. Here it is!
I made Abby one to but forgot to get a picture.
These things a worth it!
No burned fingers and you can just sit these down and start eating.
Sit them on the table or on a plate.
Have a good one

My Weekend

Hi friends!
Sat . I worked on pillow shams then looked up the size   21 by 36-41. Maybe I need to finds out what size!
moved on to working on something else until I decided to on what size.
Messed up a bag!
Oh well some days it's best  not to do any thing , so I just read!
Yesterday I worked on another quilt for my other blog so will show a little of that.
I  am working  on a quilt for my next door neighbor who has cancer.  Just found out right before Christmas but was so busy I couldn't start on it right away.
Then I watched a video of Jenny Doan making butterflies and decided to put a row of them into her lap quilt.
I have a few cut out  to see how I like them. I have two rows of the strips on point made thought I would put the butterflies between . With a border should make a good sized lap quilt.

December Finish's

Hi friends!
Don't forgot my giveaway! 
My finish's for this month, finished 4 quilt tops for the girls.
Their was just enough to make each one of them one from their grandmother's top.
Made one big king sized quilt for my son and daughter in law.
Made a Gazillion microwave cosy's.
I gave all my grand's that are in collage one so they wouldn't burn their fingers and the rest ones just in case they needed to heat something up.
So Adults and grand's got one.
I am starting pillow cases for Amy to go with her quilt.
Our fashion expert Addie Lou though the backing fabric would look great on them and I had just enough to do it.
Just started collecting fabric for my daughter's birthday quilt.
I need to talk to Noah and Hagen about what they want on their quilt this year.
All of my six kids need another quilt. If the power goes out they will need more then one quilt.
Most of them use electric heat.
Happy New Year
