Plans for next year

Hi friends!
Last Sat. when we went to the fabric shop I bought a few panels. 
This one I just had to have!
This one will go in Tommy a quilt, I have been buying fabric for it here and there  all year .

And this one will go into a quilt for a Veteran this year.
We decided that each one of us would make a quilt for a veteran this year.
 in our Q-Bees group.
Looking forward to 2019

Hi friends!
When the grands were little I bought these. on the other side is red riding hood.
And Barny of course!
Some more coke ornaments!
My Cake holder turned up side down, all the balls hold the tree up!
Made this one last year.
And a few of these last year.
Haven't had the time to make any this year but I am always looking for a pattern that I just have to make.

Hi friends!
I counted the coke ornaments on my tree...16!
Their may be a couple more left in my tub that I keep them in.
Yesterday Tommy had a apt. with his eye DR. , they ran a few test and now he has a apt. with a specialist in Feb.
 His freckle on his eye hasn't changed at all so that's the good news, but they found other problems.
afterwards we went by Harbor freight to get his Christmas present.
That's what he wanted!
And I got the free thing!
Place to put my loose pins. Then we shopped a while in the pouring down rain.
Sure were glad to get home out of the rain.
Weather man said no rain for yesterday!
Well the sun is finally out for one day before it clouds up for the next rain.
Got to walk today!
We had frozen fog this morning!
You can see the ice on the ends of the branches.

Wheelchair Quilts

Hi friends!
Saturday was our day to give out wheelchair quilts in Alabama.
First we visited this great fabric shop in Center. Wonderful fabric for 4.99 and 5.99. Then on to lunch at a really neat place.

We talked and laughed until time to go to the nursing home.
With the Lady that does the activities.
Then sis and I went looking for Tommy's cousin Mary.
From where we were we had to get into the car and drive all the way around in the pouring down rain.
It poured down all day!
Then ask for directions to where she was.
Her eyes were open until the flash went off. But she loved it and that's what counted!
Maybe it will keep her warm for many more years.

Sunday Verse


December 9

Genesis 49:9-10

9 You are a lion’s cub, Judah; you return from the prey, my son. Like a lion he crouches and lies down, like a lioness—who dares to rouse him? 10 The scepter will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet,until he to whom it belongs shall come and the obedience of the nations shall be his.

Hi friends! 
Look what I found at Walmart yesterday.
It's a pie carrier! 
I just had to have it. I could have spend hundreds just in that section.
Love the red truck with a tree!
I walked three laps yesterday , It really looks like winter. 45 yesterday so not so bad.
From the top of my track.
The drain off from the pond across the street.
Last Sat. same spot.
It was flowing last weekend.
Suppose to rain tomorrow .
We are going to give out quilt's at the nursing home tomorrow so pictures next week.
Have a great weekend

Hi friends!
The winner of the fat quarter bundle was Shirley C. She answered the email and I am mailing it out today.
Got a big stack of my petal blocks all quilted and ready to join but need a few more.
My oldest son's Christmas tree in my sewing room.
Haven't done any more decorating but Maybe today?
Yesterday it was 39 but I went and walked two laps , my face nearly froze off. Suppose to be a few degrees warmer today so maybe a few more. Suppose to rain all weekend!
So I have to get it in when I can.
Makes you feel so much better!

Hi friends!
For a few years I collected Coco cola ornaments.
Until It got hard to find them any where around here.
I think I have around a dozen in all. Maybe more.
 I gave any where from 4.95 to 20 dollars apiece.
But  quit because the only way I could find them was on the internet.
Always have loved the coke bears! And the Santa's!

These are just a few.

More Christmas

Hi friends! 
Made this for Tommy a few years ago.  It's two sided so not so Christmassy on the other side.
Not quite as , more subdued! So we keep it out all year. It's two of those blankets you get at Joann's or Michaels sewed together.  Makes for a really warm throw!
The pillow peeping out is a Dresden plate with Christmas fabric's and a Angel in the middle.
Still not finished decoration yet.
But working on it a little each day! You have got to have time to sew!

Weekend things

Hi friends! 
We got the Christmas tree up a few days ago , I spent a day fluffing it and then added the ornament's.
Yesterday I put up the tree for my oldest sun, one he used at Christmas. No picture yet.
I am still working on Christmas presents! So not many pictures.
Going to need quite a few more of these for a king sized quilt.
Didn't sew yesterday, after Church we went and bought groceries and then I walked because my legs had been hurting.
Then I took a nap!
Guess I needed that!
Today errands and then work!

Christmas is coming

Hi friends!
Don't forgot my GIVEAWAY.
I hate when we go to town for a few hours , it mess's up my day.
I started sewing last night and sewed a pin up under another part so I just quit. I will have to use the ripper to get it out.
Ended up on the couch finishing this last quilt for the nursing home.
We carried off the Thanksgiving garbage, went and voted in the run-offs, paid a arm and a leg for our pills and that is with insurance, hit Walmart then I went to the dentist.
Ruined my whole afternoon!
All the sewing I got done was on the couch!
Today we are staying at home so maybe I can get some work done on Christmas presents..
This quilt I am writing Tommy's cousin's name on so maybe it will find it's way back to her when they wash it.
It's a little bigger than the other seven I have made.
So she can cover her feet in bed or use it in a wheelchair and It's flannel on the top so extra warm.
We always had to do Tommy's mother's thing's that way so It would make it back to her.  Still some people would steal her prettier things.
I ordered these from last week, figured it would be this week before it came but got here last Sat.
Had a idea of what to do with the Christmas fabric and the footballs are for Tucker's quilt.
Better get to work.
