friday finesh

Hi friends!!!  Another cloudy good day for sewing!!!
I finished it!!! It is now in the washing machine and i am praying that it looks good when it comes out..
It think it is real pretty.  But then i would, wouldn't i.
Got to get back to working on  red haired girls quilt.
I have been cutting out strips for her saching and i got the fabric   for the back and battening so i am ready to go.
I am going to try free motion quilting on it by rows and see how it comes out.   You will have a front row seat so to speak. Never done it before and you can't really call that pot holder quilting....
You will see a lot of pot holders on here before i finish that queen sized quilt.  That is the only finishing i will get done.
I wont to thank all the new follower on here . so glad you have joined me.
Well good sewing friends  Quilt Happy

Hi friends!!! It's cloudy today!!
Hubby has been cutting   grass and i have been getting as many green beans as i can put up, of the rest of our beans and finally hubby cut them down.
I carried 5 big bowls of scrap out and got rid of it.
I still have some tomatoes that i have to do something with.
I have backed my baby quilt with pink flannel and stitched in the ditch and am ready to sew on the binding.
 And i  put another block on the pink quilt.
Hubbby got me a three draw chest yesterday but all i could get in it was one box and a half of another. I still have a big bag and a box and all that i have out working on of my fabric to find some place for.
 I have a big robe cabinet but don't have a place to put it. Maybe i need to to clean some of my craft stuff out of my pie safe and see if i can make room in it.  The robe was mothers and my son wonted it but hasn't come and got it and i have been holding it for 7 years . I guess his wife doesn't wont it in her house.
Well must work!!!!  Good sewing  Quilt Happy

baby quilt

Hi friends!!!     Another great day that god has allowed!!!
My quilt is a flimsy,  got to find something for the binding.    See my little snow man?  I made him a while back just messing around.  I think he is cute so i hung him over my computer.
I have some green dot that i have placed on top of my quilt top just to see if it grows on me enough for me to do the binding with it. there is green in it here and there and it's the same shade as this.
What do you think?

Today and the giveaway

don't forget this the link is below

  Hi friends !!  Here is the link
So don't forget the giveaway it runs until  the 3th.

I made some more pink blocks and this pot holder and tried free motion quilting on it.    I will have to try that on my pink quilt that i am making for red haired girl.
No sewing yet today, we had to go to town and finish paying bills and get grocery's. 

Pray for the people in Louisiana and Texas because it looks like Isaac is heading right straight at them.
It's the first bad storm we have had this year and is on every body's mind.    It looked like it was coming at us for a while but here in the n. ga. mountions we usually just get bad storms off of it.

 My pot holder is wonky because i was mostly trying to see what i could do. I sent a picture of it to my expert and she said it wasn't to bad.  she  was trying to buck me up so i would keep trying.  And i will keep trying because not matter how beautiful a job a pro could do ,you can't afford it when you are retired.
Well friends have a good sewing day...  Quilt Happy

baby quilt

Hi friends!! Getting hot again!!!
I put those strips together yesterday and then went hunting for my strips i had put together the other day.  I searched for hours yesterday!!!! This morning i still couldn't remember what i had done with it.  I had put all the pieces in a gallon freezer bag but didn't think i had put it in there to.  Finally i dumped it out and there it was!!!!
I have  cut my strip to join them together but need to make my short one longer first.
We wore our selves out yesterday and are resting today , but you know me i have to get to my computer..
can't miss talking to you and reading all you'll blogs....
Think i will take a nap, i have home made hamburger soup on low and after my nap maybe i will feel like sewing.

pink blocks

Hi friends!!!  Really beautiful day here!!!!
I have been sneaking in some other colors to go with pink. It is very hard to make all of them 12 inches but i am trying.  I made a whole lot that was 9 or ten that i will have to find a new use for.
Hubby is enjoying this wonderful weather and getting his weed eating done.    We have not had the air on in over a week . The windows up at night and temps near the 50tys .  It feel like September and it not but a little over a week  till it will be.
We always have a family dinner here in October for hubby's cousins from Texas and GA.
Two of my sweet step daughters help me cook for every one.  So does hubby's sister..  We always have a blast....I clean for days before the day they come....
I put up 6 pints of soup today , have run out of jars!!!  Thank you Jesus  i can quit!!!!  I honestly say i think i have  put up enough for this summer.  I have 64 quart's of green beans.
Didn't count the soup so that's enough of that.   More time to sew!!!
Well love all you friends out there  let's get to sewing.   Quilt Happy

look what i found

Hi friends!!! Great day!!!!
Look what i found.  It's a little ruff and raggedy but can be resewed.  I wonder if maybe  my mother in laws mother made this because it's a whole lot worse than the other two i  have been working on.  Maybe some day i will finish the bow tie quilt.   With all my kids to make for i don't know when that will be.
I brought my sewing machine back out yesterday and made a pot holder , i gave my daughter the last one i made.
Got to go back to sewing pink blocks so one day maybe i will get Thur with it.
I got tired of granny blocks when i was working on my daughter's granny quilt and now i am tired of pink!!! Just wait both of our hatching grands will have girls and i will be sewing pink forever.!!!!
Good to talk to all my friends.   Have a good sewing day  Quilt Happy

pink bordom

Hi  friends!! Beautiful day.

I am about to get tired of pink!!!!!!
Want be sewing today because i will have 6 or 7 grand kids after a while.   That should cheer me  up!!!!! Some grand babies hugs.
Don't know what we would do with out grand kids.
Took me a while to clean off my dining room table of all my sewing stuff so we could eat there.   Hubby and i eat on the kitchen table and if red haired girl and her hubby eats supper with us we still use the kitchen because it  sits 4 .  
 Hubby is out side cutting grass with his tractor but earlier we picked a 1/2 bushel of purple hull peas and i got half of a basket of green beans.     Hubby likes to shell peas while he watches tv at night.  We may teach grand kids how to shell peas.
If i am not dead or passed out tomorrow i will talk to you then, 6 or 7 kids are a lot to cook for.   Have a great week end.  Quilt Happy

Hi friends!!!    Another great sunny day!!!!
The bottom picture is the start of the baby quilt.    I have a long way to go!!!!
Some blocks and some i have put together.     Not got very far yet, but working on it.
I will have to put everything up tomorrow because grand kids are coming to spend the night.     I can't wait!!!
I am working on so many things right now that i am going around in circles.    But i have plenty of time .  I really enjoy being retired.     Especially with my baby.     He make me laugh when i get down.
I don't know if i could live without him, hopefully i will never have to.
That's enough dark thoughts for today...  Love you all
Have a great sewing day  Quilt Happy
