Random day


Hi friends!
Beautiful day! This is my Craftsy  order.  They had 4 yards of Kona snow for 25 dollars.  They had a sell last week and i grabbed some.
I use a lot of white.  It just seems to make your colors pop!
I made this last Friday before the world tilted. I have had nothing on my mind but my sweet daughter and her problems  since
It's for Marks son Lane's quilt.  I did two rows of his quilt don't know whether i had blogged about them or not.

.That's as far as i got.
That last frost got the ends of some of our trees .  That happens every few years.  May not have even noticed if i worked like i used to. When you work you don't have time to notice things like that.
Have a great sewing day friends.

The Grands

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I have me a sewer!!!
My granddaughter Alisha wanted to learn to sew and did really good.
While my daughter was in the hospital we keep her youngest Sat. night and SundayWe took them home Monday after she called and said they were going to let her come home,  It's a hour away but feed the kids , took them home and waited at least 2 hours after we got to the hospital for them to release her. All hospitals are the same , it takes forever for them to move.
She is doing better !
I am trying to get her a good family DR. for the last few years she has used the wellness center at work and they usually have pretty good Dr's but not now!!
Hoping to hear from them today to get appt. for new patient, they alot more time for those.
I have my cell phone in my pocket but if they don't call by 3 o'clock I will call them back.
This Dr, stays open until 6 and my daughter get off work at 4: 30.
Most Dr. don't stay open long enough for first shift people to see them.
Have a great sewing day friends, maybe I will get back to sewing soon.

Friday Finish!

 Hi friends!
Beautiful day !
I have a Friday finish!
Jarrod's quilt , one of Marks boy's.
 I started this last Saturday night and finished the binding last night, just got it out of the dryer.
Just a little  less than a week!!! Pretty good!!!
It's hanging funny because I turned up more on the left end.  It measures 58 by 81 inches now but before I washed it ,it measured  61 by 85.'A good bit of shrinking.
Still a good size for a growing teen ager.
I used good quilting fabric and the back is muslin that my sis gave me, battening poly to keep him warm next winter.
Hope he likes it.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Today

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I found this Sunday on Fabric.com  and ordered enough for the border on Mark's and Brandy's quilt.
It came yesterday, great service!
Really good
match to the fabric I had already bought. Now I just have to master that star.!!!
His son Jarrod's quilt is coming right alone!
I like those flag stars, saved a little of that fabric to go in his brother's quilt.
At the moment  I am working on four Quilt's!!!!! Know wonder I am half crazy!!!
We got up early and went to his eye Dr. and they planed his next surgery.
Then we eat breakfast  out and hit Walmart .
I needed some more white to finish a quilt and a sheet to back  one.
We had a full day before 10 o'clock. His Dr. likes to get a early start!
Brother had went to pick up his grand girl  at school so he stopped by to see if we were coming to the cook out Monday and they stayed a while.
She has a full head of curls,  Must have come them from her daddy's side of the family.
Got to get busy and work on some quilt's
Have a great sewing day friends.

Another Quilt!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I started a new one !
This is for Jarrod , Marks oldest boy.
Right now I am making 3 quilts, one for Mark and Brandy and one for each of their boys.
I started this one Sat. night , had a few minutes and started sewing pieces together.
Thought I would show you some close ups of my Christmas project .



See why I keep it, isn't it great.
I love it , going to look and see if I can find another panel in the scraps that Sis brought me and some one will get it for Christmas.
If I can't I will order me one later on this year when they bring out Christmas  fabric, they usually do that in June and July.
I just love it . Can't wait till Christmas to put it up!!!
This star is going into that quilt, of course you know I put stars in all my grands quilt's 
Have a great sewing day friends.

Family Reunion 2014

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
We had a great family reunion yesterday.
On the right is my 88 year old aunt that two years ago was battling cancer, in the middle is my aunt that yeas ago had a brain aneurysm.  My aunt  on the right came all the way from Montgomery Ala. about a 5 hour ride yesterday morning. My other aunt drove from her home in Rome about 40 minutes from us.  The other is my cousin from Atlanta.
The white haired one is my aunt that had cancer about 20 something years ago.  The other lady is my cousin from near Atlanta.
We had a pretty good crowd with the weather being like it was.
It rained all  the time we were there.  We were  planning on having it at Sloppy Floyd Park but for two years in a row it has rained so much that we had to get the fellowship hall at the church.
It was a great get together  and I enjoyed seeing my family from parts all over the south.
Have a great sewing day friends.

This and That

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
This is what I did yesterday.  Started cutting up scraps to make a quilt out of them one day  The big bulldog I didn't cut up.
 
You see it growed.!!
I think I will do some more this afternoon.
I want to have each of Mark's boys a quilt to when I give his to him.  So I will be making quilts for a while.  I still have a lot more to make.    After I do these  I will still like 7 or8 that I want to get made this year.  Maybe I can do all of them still like over half of the year left.  Time will tell.
 
 
I had to put in a picture of pretty blue eyes, our Lukie Dukie
 
A sneak peak at some thing I will post about next week.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Great Grands

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
We had company last night, our sweet great grands.
They are playing on the doll quilt that I made for Katy jo.
Kelly , the mother of two of the great grands liked Luke's quilt.
Grandpaw had to hold Luke, it been so long since we keep him he didn't know us. I wish I was younger I would keep them but too old to run after kids.. Luke's little legs just run every where.
 
Got the fabric to start Mark's and Brandy's quilt.  Maybe later today I can get a start on his quilt.
Have a great quilting day friends.
