Slow But Sure

Hi friends!

Small pieces of scraps are being cut into what ever size square I can get out of it!

Only got three shelves ironed so far, thought I would try to stay ahead of the scraps and cut them as I go. In the back ground are two wheelchair quilts for the nursing home. May not even allow us in to give them out!


Still checking it for unfilled holes!

Stay safe

Tractor Troubles

Hi friends!

Still ironing every chance I get, putting to small pieces on my table to be cut into squares. I have got to do something to get to much into my book cases.

Yesterday we spent all day just about waiting for the wrecker to get here and carry Tommy's tractor in to be fixed.

It was about 3 when this was taken!!!  This was after he spent all day Sat. working on it! They said it might be a fuse.
We got up early so Tommy could get there as they opened at 8 oclock.
Now he is just waiting to see what it will cost to get it back...... running, We have had it about 10 years with no problems.
Other than that all is well  with us! 

Covid 19 is running very high here in our tiny county. So we are going only when we have to and wearing our masks.

stay safe

Radon Things


 Hi friends!

 Blurry picture but the best I could get from the back porch. Our resident Deer Mom and her twin babies. They were playing and jumping all around her!

I have been ironing fabric , trying to get more in a smaller space.
Added small borders so It would be the right size, the size I wanted it! It's a little long but the Vet might be tall!
Today I plan on doing a little more , It needs ironing and sandwiching! 15 minutes a day works out great!
   The other day Tommy went out to cut and five minutes later he was back , dripping! It had started to rain!  later that day he tried again but the same thing happened! I looked out during the rain and he was under a tree down in the field. He finally gave up! But today he is going to try again! Wish him luck!
Stay safe friends

Veterans Quilt

Hi Friends!

Got some labels because mine were all gone! Got these from "EverEmblen". Great ! You can get sew on or iron on. Proud to add them to my quilts.

Today is Labor Day, we are retired but we worked many years. Back when I was packing diapers and getting kids ready for school before I could go to work seems long ago. Even my grandkids are all out of high school. The youngest last year.

Got this far on my veteran's quilt over the weekend.
Hopefully will get those stars finished and joined and added to the bottom. 
Then my top will be done.
May not be able to hand it to a veteran but if not I will see about getting one to some one that served in the war.
Couldn't go any where last year, now it's worse!
Stay safe

Random Things

Hi friends!

Added three more to my pile last night.

Quilting and Weather

Hi friends!

Got a little done over the weekend!

Yesterday we spent  the afternoon in Rome , Hubby had a scan and then we visited his blood vein Dr.. Good news every thing was the same.
But we were wore out by the time we got back and went to the bank. Mostly the bank! I sat in there waiting to talk to some one for 20 minutes before I gave us and just did half of what I went in there to do!

Lots of people working but only one doing what I needed doing and she was  talking  to some woman for 20 minutes. May be she was buying the bank!!!

Ida is dumping on us and has been since yesterday before we went to the Dr. Then it's going to visit my friends Dawn and Julierose, hope it dries out some before it gets that !

Hoping it goes back out to sea before then for good!

We have gotten a years worth of rain!!!

Made a circle of stars around a bigger star! Now waiting for a big idea for the next step!!!!

Have a good one and watch out for "Ida"

Veterans Quilt

Hi friends!

Working on a veterans quilt, just hope we can give it  to a vet. Last year I gave to my brother who was stationed in Germany years ago. And don't know if we will be allowed to go into the nursing home , right now no one is allowed,

Guess we will just have to wait and see!

Kind of designing as I go!


So we will see where it goes.
That's all I got  done yesterday, hoping to get more done today.

Good Book

Hi friends!

Amos Decker witnessed a murder right in front of the F.B.I. building! With total recall he can recall every detail! The killing is baffling! 

Decker's  team, partner Jamison, can find no point when the killer and victims has crossed paths.  One, A school teacher a part time one at that! And the killer owns a consulting firm and after killing her he turns the gun on himself. So no one left to answer questions.
 The victim is rich! Has a fine home and drives a hundred thousand dollar car! With no visible means of support so they start digging into her background only to find nothing of her life before ten years ago.

Enter Harper Brown!, member of the D.I.A. and she want to take the case away from Decker.

Lots of  gov. firms in this one because it become a risk to the U.S.A. 

Didn't  know if I would like this but it's very good and I will be buying more by this author, David Baldacci.

We had a visit to Hubby's eye DR. yesterday so reading was all I got done.

Still praying for our northern states plus near Nashville we had 21 people drown , they got so much rain  they had floods.

Not ready to part with my wonderful hubby yet!  Been a great 24 years!

Back to wearing a mask when around other's to! Those masks are hot and sweaty! Don't know how people work in them all day?

So far on my vet. quilt I have half a line made and a few lose blocks .  That has to be ready by Nov. first.

So I have got to get busy on that. Still making hanging towels for ovens to. Went to buy pot holders and it's hard to find any!

Catch Up

Hi friends!

The quilt shop at Tunnel Hill came to our quilt meeting last night. She had to move to a cheaper building because of the pandemic.  But maybe we helped out last night. So nice of her to come to us. Plus she gives us a discount because of us being a quilt group


.Mine! I needed something for my vet's quilt and a binding, three yards of one and I of the other, she also has those wooden towers to run your thread over the machine. Should have gotten a picture , sis bought one. I have one but it's metal!

I ordered mine from somewhere!

We had a good crowd last night.

One of Susan's wheelchair quilts.
Vickie Quilt.

A quilt Glady bought for 5 dollars at trade day

One of my wheelchair quilts. I took one of the oven towels for show and tell.
 
Faye's Quilt.


I nearly am finished with this , plus I googled what was wrong with my camera and fixed it myself.

Stay safe friends
