Abby's Quilt

Hi friends!
Worked on this!
She picked this fabric for her panel lap quilt. It match's!
Ready to be sandwiched!
Yesterday Tommy had a ultra sound and went to see his surgeon to hear the results. One year his artery in his neck went from 50 to 65 so every year we get worried ! But Thank the good Lord it didn't this time still at 65! Those surgery's are bad! His last one was nothing compared to that one . It's been 11 years since they did the other side.
I stopped at Ollie's and got some books, one after I got home my sis had already bought and I had read, the Catherine Coulter one. Should have know, sis buys them as soon as they release them..
We went to Red lobster and celebrated!
Have a good one

Hi friends!
I have made 7 of the 13 I needed to finish putting this quilt together. Let me show you what I mean by scraps blocks.
Scrap fabric and scrap pieces of battening!
Don't want to throw away nothing but tiny pieces!
That's the same block finished above.
I pin down scrap strips on each side and make one trip to the sewing machine and iron.
You know it rained so much this spring that it was May before we planted anything and then it was just tomato's.
Our fist tomato's!
We drink our coffee every mourning right here!
All summer long!
On one side is :
A blooming crepe myrtle and the garden.
On the other us these!
Rose of Sharon's!
Tommy built that porch , just like he built our living, sun room. He had the cement poured! It 55 feet long so big enough for the car and truck plus us a outside room.
Have a good one

Sunday Verse


July 21

Hebrews 13:5-6

5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” 6So we say with confidence, “The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?”

Need more Fabric!

Hi friends!
I added this but hated it so took it back off!
That red is  the only thing I still have enough of to add borders so thinking about looking next week for something.
Made another string block!  That's all the sewing I got done yesterday. Hopefully I will have a few minutes this weekend.
I have spring fever , the spring cleaning kind!
Yesterday I did a deep clean of the bath-room and this morning I did the floors and furniture in the living room before Tommy got up.
Next is our bedroom! Maybe tomorrow the kitchen!
That might take a week!
Have a great weekend

Strip Quilt

Hi friends!
I had put this one back a few months ago! Drug it out! Really though I was further along on it than I was!
I added the blocks I had lose but that just completed the forth row. So back to making more blocks.
That was just recent scraps so I will have to dig out some more today.
Got this far about 8:30 and quit! Didn't start until after supper.
Have a good one

Jessica and Richard's quilt

Hi friends!
Got the width , now just to get all the right length.
Still a few that needs extending on both ends!
Look what I wanted for supper last night!
I stole a couple of green tomato's out of the garden and fried them up. I got a craving of these in one of my biscuits.
Tommy helped me eat them!
I don't cook biscuits very often because they are not good for you!
But sure are good!
So glad we are both feeling better, I sleep all night last night , first time in weeks.
Must have been those biscuits!  lol

Hi friends!
I though I would start some Christmas gifts! This is Abby's lap quilt.
She and Kim are the only ones to pick their fabric they want to go with their's yet. When I get further alone on these I will send pictures of fabric to the other three and let them pick.
Beautiful panel, isn't it? All my step girls and my daughter in law fell in love with that panel so I bought another four.
Added a black border first.
Makes it stand out!
Abby picked this fabric to do the bigger border and it match's the red.
Just need some more borders to have a finished top.
If I can I want to finish all five by Thanksgiving and go ahead and give them theirs to use this year.
Will make them a small something for Christmas to give then.
Have a good one

Not much longer!

Hi friends!
Did a little work on this.
Not quit long enough! Though about adding a fabric border to the top and bottom.   I think it might be enough stars!!!
Maybe I am just tired of making them. I want it nice and long in case they give it to a tall man! If we do it like last year will will draw a name.
I spent a while yesterday cutting 4 1/2 inch squares , not sure what I will use them for. May just be a side sewing thing for a while.  Just to use up some of the scraps that are taking over.
Haven't been in the mood to sew , never though I would say that!
Guess it's just that I have felt bad for two weeks. Hope that's over with!
 Think I will start Jessica some kitchen things. She loved the double pot holder I made her so will make her some more. To give her when I finish with her quilt.
Thinking of giving her this ! She has to get up early to go to the hospital, where she works.
Don't know if she drinks coffee but she drinks something.
Got to get something done!

Hi friends!
 Been feeling rough so I though I would post some picture from around here since I haven't sewed.

Pictures from my track!
Have a good weekend

Hi friends!
Not much sewing done yesterday. Just a little on this!. Added one more row that I had sewed onto this.
I have a half row done and I think I will need to make one more.
Also fixed a place that hadn't been sewed. I was so sleepy after sleeping  two hours the night before that  I could hardly move so last night I took two of those tiny pills and sleep like a baby.
She wanted me to see how each dose worked until I got it right so this will be it I think. Maybe if I can sleep good for two weeks I can stop taking it and still sleep.
At least that's what she thinks.
Taylor works with DR. Bowers.
Quilt Q-Bees tonight so I will report tomorrow.

One Finish

Hi friends!
Finished my one Christmas mug rug for this week yesterday.
Tried to finish up the rows on Jessica's and Richards quilt.
Worked on the next one. Today I will add them to the rest.
Getting tops ready for some sandwiching soon.
The heat index here yesterday was 107 , the temp got to nearly a hundred. Last night before dark it sprinkled for a while but after dark we got a lot.
Maybe inch's  We needed it bad because it have been two weeks since we had got really real rain. A sprinkle here and there!
Out tomato's were still doing good but the ground was really dry.
Nice and green and full of green tomato's
I took some closer pictures but my camera fogged its so moist out there .
Have a good one

Planning Christmas

Hi friends!
Playing with a project for Dawn's "Make for Christmas". A mug rug! Love that Christmas tree print.
I had a Christmas fat quarter that I will use for the backing.
 Maybe a finish today?
Tommy is feeling better , gave him a shot and some steroids to start taking today plus a antibiotic.
Dr. Bowers hits it hard because he has COPD. We have a really good Dr.
He was raised here in north Ga.
Got these a few weeks ago, Thanks Gwen! Going to make lap quilts of five of these for Christmas quilts for Amy and my step girls.
It's nice to get a head start on this Christmas.
Have a good one

Quilt of Valor

Hi friends!
Working on that bottom row. Haven't added it to the rest I have made yet.
Yesterday after Church we did nothing. Tommy didn't feel good and felt worse as the day went on so I made him a apt. early this morning to get him checked out this afternoon.
With all the humid weather and his COPD you never know.

Hi friends!
Left off on this much sewed together.
Half of the bottom has been sewed together but need to do the other half before I add it to my rows.
Yesterday no sewing happened.
Sis and I went to Hammers to buy some fabric. Suppose to be a big sale but only one table was on sale   I bough some Christmas fabric.
I also need some white!

Sis brought me some scraps.
I will use them in my next scrap quilt.
Have a great weekend
