Today

Hi friends!
Quilted yesterday until the thread run out.
I have looked and looked for my black thread, today I am buying some and I will find it then!
Isn't that the way it happens?
Sandwiched this yesterday, my last wheelchair quilt.
This is number eight. Not delivering them until Dec. 11th.
Still making these when I have a few minutes .   I hope to sandwich Abby's quilt today!
We will see !
I have a little over one third of Anna's Quilt quilted, so plan on working on that to.
But we all need to sew so I am still working on pillow shams .
Have a good one. 
Rainy Ga.

Michael and Ashleys Quilt

Hi friends!
No outside picture today because it's pouring down rain.
Now to finish the pillow shams.
Started quilting Anna's Quilt yesterday. Search and searched for my black thread but this was all I could find.
I know I have a bigger spool than that if  I can just find it.  Think I have two black spools! Where they are I don't know!
I have looked in all my tins where I keep thread.
Any way I got a start quilting Anna's quilt with this tiny spool. 
Was looking in my closet yesterday and found this:
Hadn't seen it in a few years , so I have a new Christmas shirt. Then I found another! Guess that means I need to clean out my closet!
We all know I had rather  sew!

Q-Bee's Quilt of Valor

Hi friends!
This morning our quilt group ,Q-Bees gave my brother-in-law his quilt of valor. His name was picked from a long list of names of men and women from the Menlo area that served in our armed forces.
The whole school did a program honoring our vets. I did a video of the whole service but my camera must not can record that long and I didn't know it so it's just until Roger walked up to get his quilt.
I didn't even know all this took place every year. Just one of many services when it gets close to Nov 11th. Most of my uncles  , plus my daddy , my brother and first husband served. By most of my uncles I mean lots because my daddy was one of 15.
The one with my Mom blacked out  next to him is my daddy. I had lots of Uncles that served during WW2. All of them came home!
None of them are alive now , my dad died in 1972.
But they all went and fought for our freedom. Then came home went to work and raised their kids.
I am proud of them all.
Have a good weekend

Anna's Quilt

Hi friends!
Yesterday I made the backing for Anna's Quilt.
Her quilt is under this!
Took it to the back porch and sandwiched it.
Now as soon as I get through quilting Michael's and Ashley's quilt I will have another ready.
Will have to starch and iron it today.
I stayed at home yesterday, not walking my track because I got three teeth pulled and Tommy would have a stroke if I did that.
Just about had one last night when I sandwiched that quilt.
If it was him it would be a different matter.
Have a good one

Petals

Hi friends!
I started on the next pillow sham before my visit to the Dentist yesterday.
Have you ever noticed how people ask you questions when your mouth is full of cotton?
Made me a little XZzx!
Last night I made up some petals for Amy's quilt.
So I guess I will work on that today. Maybe get some quilting done to.
Suppose to rain this afternoon.

Michael and Ashley's quilt

Hi friends!
Started on Michael and Ashley's pillow shams .
Need to make the other one today.
I took the quilt and spread it out to see what I had quilted on it . Was afraid I may have goofed but It's good.
Try to get back to that tonight.
Got most of the right side done. About three fourth's of the way down.

Weekend Sewing

Hi friends!
I am going to applique these petals onto a white twelve inch  square. Just taking my time getting the petals ready.
So far I have done 17 squares.
I ordered my 30 yellow  solid fabric last week but have heard nothing from them. Going to use it for the flower middles.
Don't have to have it finished until  Christmas but it's going to be a  king so need to get all my supplies.
I checked it says pending!
Seems like I ordered a long time ago but it was the first of Nov.
Guess I just wanted it yesterday!
Did a little more on this , this past weekend. Hope to get some done today.
Hugs

Petals

Hi friends!
Still making petals!
Pinned two squares yesterday after making up a bunch more.  Using eleven per-flower takes a bunch, so does a king sized quilt.
Spent some time last night quilting Michael and Ashley's quilt.
It's a big queen so it will take a while.
Maybe this weekend I will get some more sandwiched.
Tomorrow Sis and I are going to the yard-sale for some more fabric and some thread.
Tommy doesn't feel good so may just stay at home today and sew.
Have a great weekend

Rainy Day In Georgia

Hi friends! 
My finish's for this month.
Two wheelchair quilts.
A finish of shorts!
This one that I finished the top bit haven't found a border so put it up for a while.
The top without clutter!
Yesterday while walking I took a picture of these trees.
One of the tree off of my trail. 
When we got up it was raining so I took another.
It has spread that gold more.
But my Bradford Pears haven't changed good yet.
We dug a ditch yesterday to protect the driveway.
After  we finished that we cleaned gutters!
I hold the ladder! And empty the bucket into the bucket on his tractor.
All that after running around for hours,
Rainy day in Ga. today

Yesterday

Hi friends! 
Got my seventh wheelchair quilt sandwiched.
That's the only one I got sandwiched.
Got it starched and ironed on both sides.
Got it quilted  but got slowed down when looking for something to bind it with.
While Tommy was doing this.
We had a leak in our Delta{Lifetime guarantee} sprayer hose. I sent them a message with pictures but that was last week and they sent me a e-mail saying some one would get in touch....waited and waited. We gave up and bought another.
Good thing we did because when he took off the faucet it was leaking to.
But now we are drip free!
Thank goodness!
Package stills says life time guarantee but they are now made of plastic!
We sewers know about plastic!!!!
Have a good one
Hugs

Amy's Quilt

Hi friends! 
I was thinking 12 inch blocks might be to small but it looks like it will be just right.
And I though red but now I am thinking yellow for the center and for the front joining since I am doing this qaug. I think yellow is a better fit. A king is a lot easier to manage making it that way.
I cut four of the off white. Something just keep pointing me toward the off white and Julie Rose got her grandmother quilts out and she though off white would fit better.
Then I though of the quilts made by my mother in law and she didn't use bright white . I think hers were more 40 and 50's but during that time people used what ever they could get, skirts, shirts even dress pants.
My first mother in law made us a quilt out of dress pants with no battening but it was really warm, I would still have it if oldest son hadn't took it camping and some one else took it home with them.
Left a pile of rags for him to bring home.
Wouldn't surprise me if he gave it to them. He would give anything to some one that asked.
Have a good one

Weekend

Hi friends!
Been making petals this past weekend.
This is a slight off white !
This is a bright white! 
Trying to decide which to use.
In the 1930's was the white's bright or a little subdued?
Amy wanted a thirty's quilt so I got all thirty's  reproduction fabrics.
I have asked Google but no answer!
I stumped Google!
Sis has been on vacation.
She brought me back this! I take a Turmeric  curcumin capsule every day but this is the tea with black pepper , suppose to help with pain.
It's a yellow tea!  
Today I am getting out side and walking!
When I don't walk for a few days my hip hurts and keeps me awake at night.
And It hurt yesterday and all night!
Getting old is not for Sissie's!
Have a good one
Hugs

Finished Top

Hi friends! 
Besides running around yesterday I got this up to 37 by 47.
Suppose to be 36 by 45 so this is good.
They all shrink just a little when washed!
I sandwiched this a few weeks ago but my battening didn't go all the way to the bottom so Yesterday I fixed that. Guess I didn't measure it right.
Now it's ready to be quilted.
My Oats in a microwave bowl holder. These  things come in handy. I think I made every one in the family one a  year or two year ago for Christmas.
Think I am going to make a big pot of soup today it's so dreary and rainy today.
Damp chill!!!!
Have a great weekend

Number 7

Hi friends!
Yesterday I worked on this for a little while.
Since I have so many already cut I might as well use them up.
It's a little long across, suppose to be 36 inch's so I took off  one of the  side rows.
That's better , still need a little to get to 45 inch's long. Guess I will finish it today some time.
Need to find out if cousin Mary is in this unit , If she isn't I will make another for her.
Hugs
Babs
