Snow Day

Hi friends!
You'll have seen this picture of my nice green garden before , just now it's white!
We got up to snow this morning after weather men said it would not snow on us!
I think they may have been wrong!
Tommy put the tree up for me to decorate Wednesday!
I still need to add something on top and maybe a few more things.
See Dawn I put those under the tree!
going to sew and enjoy this snow.
Have a great weekend.

Log Cabin

Hi friends!
Sewing rows and then sewing them together one at a time. Lots of walking because our bedroom is a few rooms away from my sewing room.
Laying each row out to make sure every block is in the right spot!
Still need one more at the bottom but i will need to make one more block. Two were a littler small so I will use them on the pillow shams.
Need to get to work! we spent Monday in  town so didn't get much done but worked on it yesterday.
Have a good cold day friends!

Log Cabin Quilt

Hi friends!
These are not sewed together ! Just laying it out so i can see the pattern.
I have the 93 when i get them sewed together! but not the 104 and if i made two more rows to go down each side i would run out of fabric.plus it would be a good 10 inch's to wide. so i am thinking about a strip of white , a stripe of batiks and another small strip of white.
Can't think of any thing else that i have enough fabric to go all the way around.
I will study on it for a while.
Raining here today.

Yesterday

Hi Friends!
I did these Wednesday!
Yesterday I had a app. with my retina Dr., hoping he would say see you in a year.
Wasn't expecting what he said at all!
When he finished pushing the skin around my eye all the way to the back of my skull he said " You will have to have surgery if you don't want to go blind"!
He said that I could have lazor surgery and it might do what was needed.
I asked if he did it in the office he said yes but was booked up until later yesterday afternoon.
So we went and eat and came back. Went to Long Horn for my Birthday lunch.
He did it in ten minutes!
Now since they are closing that office until the second week of Jan. I will have to go to their offices in Chattanooga in a couple of weeks.
For post op visit!
And all I wanted was to quit going to Dr's!!!!!
Seems like that's all I have done since the first of the year.
Oh well it could be much worse.
Mine is just a small problem compared to others.
My blessing's are many.
Have a good weekend

New to me machine

Hi friends!
My loot! And this is nothing compared to the books i bought!
The fat quarter's are for Q-Bees , we pile a certain color up every month and they draw a winner and they all go home with that person. I won them a couple of months ago.
I know blue is Jan.'s color so i got one! And pink and yellow comes in there to!
The yardage of dark blue is for Jarrod's quilt.
I will start it soon! I plan on buying some turquoises and grey soon for Allie's quilt. Both of their birthdays are in Jan. so maybe i can finish both in Jan!
I got nearly two yards of the snowman and 50 % of the nearly a yard.
Someone said there was a great sale at Jo-anns , maybe! Didn't help me!
This is the machine my Son brought me!
No Bobbin case! Or bobbins! Cindy Peters is looking to see if she has one i can buy!
I hope so!
Can't wait to see on this!

Eight Blocks

Hi friends!
We ran around yesterday so i didn't think I would get any sewing done.
But last night I made a few more blocks.
We went to Rome for my drivers licences but before we went I got on their site and filled out my paper work and it just took a minute. I did the eye test and had my picture done , ugly as usual and paid ! Lots better than last time.
We came back and paid out taxes , car and property and ran a bunch of errands and bought groceries.
By the time we got home it was to late to go to the meeting where they gave our quilt to the winner and then they were going to give the 390.00 we raised to the fire dept.
I guess their will be pictures in the paper. I will post them when I see them.
On the Dr. yesterday morning , they said that drinking English breakfast tea would help you lose weight. So bough some and tried it !
I think it has lots of caffeine. I didn't tire and was able to sew after all that running around.
We will see about the lose weight thing!!!!
