I have been working off and on, on this quilt.
I think it time to add something else , a block line or another line of the bigger scraps.
This picture is the the snow from the carport
It's suppose to rain most every day next week so this will all melt..
On the fifteenth i broke a needle and hunted every where for one, then i read a email that said 100 needle's for $12.99 so ordered them . It has taken them a while to get here. I think at first they had so many orders that they had a hard time filling them. But after they shipped they changed the day several times, must be because so much of the US is under snow. I have ordered from them before and got it in a few days. At least i have needles to last for a while.
I have never ordered needles from them before but a few at Walmart is 4 dollars so i hope this is a good buy.
That fabric I won and got at the first of the week makes great zipper pouch's, i added a small zipper pocket but was to lazy to change my foot so it pokes out a little.
I guess this one is for me!
Have a great day friends.

It started about 4 and this picture was taken at 8.
It's falling off the trees fast because the temps are suppose to get above freezing for a while today.
We got 8 or nine inches last night and that more than we have had at one time in years the roads are clear and our power is on that what is important.
I made snow cream for the first time in many years, i guess since my kids were little.
Tucker loved it!
Angel bundled him up good.
My Daughters grand!
Look at Bentley's eyes, he loved it.
Hasn't been that long i made him a quilt before he was born.
Can't wait for Easter to see them hunt eggs!
Just a little over a month!
Have a good one friends.

We were gone all day yesterday! And of course we eat at Chili's.
May be the last time! We ordered what we always order and got something else.
They had changed the chicken and the potato's! It used to be Potato's and gravy! The Chicken was totally different.
First we paid some bills and then we went to Rome, where Chili's is, I had a apt. to get my mammogram. We had a little time before my Apt. so we went to Tuesday Morning, I got Tommy to go in with me . If it had just been me i would have gotten one thing, We bought 3!!
Tommy is always looking for the perfect Skillet, he though he had one with this but his egg stuck this morning. I have a lot of skillets that i have bought that he didn't like or he bough and didn't like. My kitchen is over flowing with stuff now but i needed the loaf pan because mine broke a couple of years ago.
I have lost my cake pan but it's here some where,but he said we needed a new one. I though i had just gotten my old one where it cooked good.
They were saying 4 to 6 inches of snow today so we went buy Walmart and stocked up. Made for a long day and i was wore out when we got home.
No snow yet , yesterday they were saying by 1 today but now they are saying later. I will believe it when i see it. Of course if we have any i will make pictures.
Have a great day friends
I will be sewing!

I made up one string of 4 inch scraps until it was long enough to fit the other string of squares.
I had some green so i ran a sashing in on my big squares and my 4 inch down beside it.
I am liking it so far!
Put another one on the other side.
Plenty of hang over so that a small border will make it Queen sized.
That's what? One tenth of a quilt top.!
Have a wonderful day friends.

I played yesterday and it started with this drawing.
I was trying to see if there was a way to use up a lot of scraps and make it a 10 inch block but this one was 8 by 9 so i went back and tried again.
This one was still not the right size. so i just grabbed some 6 inch square and started sewing them together.
With 3 by 6 inches scraps and just keep sewing until it was long enough to hang over the side's of the bed.
Look what came today! I won the fat eight bundle and charm pack from fabric editions . Isn't it adorable with the silver spots?
And the book i won from Angie from aquiltingreader'sgarden . , I have been wanting to learn all i can about applique. So i will devour this book.
Have a great day friends.

I finished a quilt Friday so yesterday
i gave my machine a good clean and changed her needle and oiled her good.
Nearly clean here.
That's a lot of gook that doesn't need to be inside your machine. Their was a piece of a needle to that had broke off. You need to take off the face plate to get to it to give it a good clean.
i just wait until i finish a big quilt and them clean it, don't know if their is a time limit or not.
Some one may have published something about how long you wait to give it a good cleaning but i haven't read it any where
Our Snow, mostly ice.
Just glad it wasn't worse.
Have a great weekend friends.

I finished up Brad and Aubree's quilt. See the piano key border
It has fought me all the way but i hope it keeps them warm for years to come.
A learning experience for me so maybe i can make my son and Amy a King sized one for Christmas
It's still big ever after i washed it. I always wash mine because i use basting spray and no body needs to breathe those fumes.
Have a great day friends.

This is my beautiful grand daughter Anna. Isn't she beautiful? We are blessed with beautiful grand daughters and handsome grand sons.
Anna goes to college in Gainsville and is staying with my son and his family.
She put some pictures on face book yesterday that i wanted to show you.
They got their power back on yesterday , just hope it stays on with all that ice on every thing.
I know up North it's much worse but 3 of my grand kids are out there. and my only son and his wife so i hope their power stays on.
I will be so glad to see spring!!!!
Cold here! Still stitching!
We went to town today to get a few things , man it's cold out there.
So of course i had to make a bag.
I used the cute one with the little pin on the

Still working on the hem!
My son still doesn't have power across the state. The ice storm hit them but missed us.
I hope they get it back on today before this much colder air hits them, it will be colder there , They have electric heat and are in the mountains, but they have a fireplace, don't know how warm that will keep them.
This is a long strips of fabric binding if long is 8 or 9 inches.
I ordered some zippers and it said they would come yesterday and they didn't , didn't come today either, guess they are having a hard time getting out of all that snow.
My daughter live's up one country and they are getting laying snow.or that's what the weather man said. We are blessed to have a good warm house and plenty of heat.
Stay warm my friends,

No ice that i saw last night but across the start where my son lives the power is off. Just pray they get it back on soon.
Now i am ready to hem, got some more top stitching to do and then get it hemed.
You have seen those magical pillow cases on u tube? well they are as easy as they say. I ran this up the other day in no time.
But when i showed it to Tommy he said' you are not putting that loud thing on my pillow'
So it now resides on my side of the bed and i love it..
Thinking about making a set for my sis and my sis in loves birthday presents.
Have a great day friends.
