Drawing Stars


Hi friends!
Our internet was out all afternoon yesterday, you would think I would get lots of sewing done but I spend the day checking to see if it was back.
I did get a start to quilting this.
But I think I on going to practice on the table runner first!
This one!
Wanting to try stars but need to practices!
So far my drawing practice sucks! Going to have to practice more! Maybe I can find in on the internet and it will show me how!
Prayers for a unspoken worry
Have a good weekend

Table Runner

Hi friends!
Sewed my blocks together , them trimmed them to a match.
Sandwiched them!
Ready to be ironed and quilted!
We went and gave our blood and saw the Dr.  Tommy's lungs was clear so it must have been that rag weed across the street. But he's has been taking antibiotic for a few days , some he had left over last trip to the Dr. He told him and he said good. No flu shots yet they are  suppose to get to his office later this week.
So we will go back in a week or to just to get them.
They have so much trouble getting my veins to give blood. It's just started the last year. She says they roll!
We have the sweetest nurse, she lives down the road from where we live. She used to go to church with us.
Hopefully we will go see another aunt today if she is at home.
Have a good one

Hi friends!
My brother and my Daddy's only sister that  is still alive.
Don't see much of this aunt so we went to see her. The only one still alive out of 15 kids, she is 85.
My mother baby sister I see on Sunday at Church.
Her daughter was gone but she lives with her because she fell not to long ago and broke her hip. and she has had two heart attacks.
When we pulled up she was sitting on her front porch talking to a neighbor
When Tommy and I went up there a couple of years ago she was talking to her neighbor.

Look what I spyed!
Its a table with quilt blocks painted on it.
I think we are going to see another Aunt next Tuesday, If nothing goes wrong.

Always Something

Hi friends!
Over the weekend I sandwiched the Quilt of Valor.
I don't like this as well as I do the kind I buy at Walmart.
But Walmart got to where it just oozed glue.So I quit buying it! Maybe this year it will be better.
I used it for years with no problem but in the last year it got bad!
Maybe Walmart started making it!~ They usually mess things up when they try to make things.

Now I have two sandwiched and in need of starching and ironing.
This heat just goes on and on! 95 every day!
Said we might get a drop of rain by the weekend and go into the 80's for the high's.
Our poor light bill just goes up and up!!!!!
Highest bills we have every had!
Well last week Tommy got his tractor put back together and running , Friday he had to take apart the mower!
That means John Deer , high parts!
He will call them later today to be sure they have the  parts when we drive there.
He is calling them now!
Have a good one

Ecclesiastes 5:18

18 This is what I have observed to be good: that it is appropriate for a person to eat, to drink and to find satisfaction in their toilsome labor under the sun during the few days of life God has given them—for this is their lot.

Family


Hi friends!
No sewing yesterday! Hubby's sister and her husband came and spent the day.
We made ice cream !
Soon the weather will get to cool for making it and hubby says it's the only ice cream he can eat. Come's out more like snow cream!
This makes my living room looks so long! My sewing room is where I am standing. Glad nothing hurts my tummy!
My internet keeps going off so I am hoping I can get this posted.
