This is from Wednesday because it rained all day yesterday.
The big ditch in front of our house. Tommy weed eater it on that day and plowed the garden to.
We just enjoyed the rain yesterday. I started a book but it had to much debris in it to get to the story so I changed to a Regency Romance. I usually save those for the thread mill but I needed a slow book that was easy reading.
I would guess it was kind of depressing but that was just the mood we were in.
Do you every start a book and it's hard to find the story because of all the words?
I have read all my life and every once in a while I run into one.
You learn to just pick the parts that are about the story and then some times you throw it away.
I have seen some that I couldn't stand to read another minute! They would bore you to death!
I've sewed all my life to but just started quilting when I turned 70.
Right now I need to be in there sewing. About to start Wayne's quilt and Addie's quilt. I have plenty of fabric for Wayne's so today I will look on pinterest for a block that I love.
I have pinned square in a square quilt and i'm thinking of doing Wayne's quilt like that.
So I will look for a new block to do Addies in.
Some I haven't done before!
Wish me luck
Have a great weekend

I didn't think I had any light pink fabric for Addie's quilt in my stash but I did.
Even a small pieces of light pink and black. But I will have to order some more black.
I have a small piece left from other quilts I have made. Now just to find a pattern, She didn't have any thing in mind.
This was night before last. Sign of storms to come?
It is a steady rain and has been for 5 hours that I know. The kind that sinks in and it's what we need.
He work the garden out Monday and again yesterday.
This is the first time in 17 years that our squash wouldn't come up!
He also spread fertilizer around the corn and plowed it in.
I did just a little sewing.
Have a good one

I though I would sandwich my vintage farm quilt and I read that the sheet sizes on the sheet would work but low and behold it didn't. So I will have to take it back off and buy another one.
Oh well I will put it up until next week when I can buy a sheet.
Talked to Addie Lou yesterday and she wants a light pink and black quilt!
So I will see what I can find for her quilt.
She and Wayne are my next Grand's that gets a quilt.
I have the fabric for Wayne's and his birthday is in July so I will start on his while I round up some pale pink for my Addie Lou.
All the rest of my grand's are older than 18 but I plan to make all the way to the top.
I have done it once and hope to do it again.

This is our newest great grand!
We had never meet her , just seen her on face-book.
Yesterday all Tommy's girls came for a dinner and to see their daddy.
Missy was keeping Sable so she brought her and we played pass the baby all afternoon.
Missy is her grand mother.
Tommy was tickled to see all four of his girls.
Her uncle Richard holding her.
I held her and Tonia did and Bobby did but I didn't get pictures of that.
She may be one sore baby today.
You could say something to her and she would just smile.
A pretty little sweetie.

About 3 o'clock he sat down and went to sleep, Grand-paw picked him up and put him on the couch and covered him up.
He sleep for nearly three hours .
Needless to say I didn't get any sewing done yesterday.
He is a sweet boy, Tommy showed him my vibrating foot cushion and he loved it.
We live in beautiful hills and mountains.
We went to Cooks today and bought a bunch more veggies'.
They plant very early and had tomato's the last of May, wish I had known about it earlier. They start them in their basement and buildings and barns all over the farm
But they were covered up with customers this morning.
Have a great weekend
