Friday finish!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!!!
 Sis and i went to Chattanooga  today to visit jo-anns and mckays and as many other stores as we could get to.
Jo- anns was having a 50% on sale so i got some things that i will show you tomorrow.
I have really been working on that quilt so i can give both boys theirs Sunday.  Then i will start a baby quilt for my shop and after that a quilt for W. and M  two more of our grands. Out of 16 quilts i have made 4 so far this year.    I hope to get all of them a quilt for their birthdays this year.
Have a great sewing day.  Quilt happy

Hi friends!
Beautiful day , still cold!
My sis got these in Clearwater  Fla. when she lived down there for my mom and i. She lived and worked there for 25 years at least before she closed the plant and moved back up here.  She was next in line below the CEO so it fell in her lap to lay people off.. This was nearly 16 years ago, she has been in good old GA. every since. maybe some day she will retire and she can quilt all the time.
These she found at a craft fair , they used to shut down streets and have them,    don't know if they still do . I haven't been to Fla in 15 years.
We all way's go to my son's now if we go anywhere because as i have told you before , our dogs wont eat or drink when we are gone.
Have a great sewing.  Quilt happy

Hi friends!
Sunshiny day!
Well i got it together , ready to be quilted.maybe i can get it washed tomorrow.  I hope so then i can stack it on the bed with the other birthday presents.
Then i can clean.  wow!!! tomorrow is Thursday and i will be gone Friday and Sat. i have to cook!!!!
This week is just about gone!!!!!   Of course i have cleaned along and since it's not suppose to do any thing but rain all day Sunday i am not mopping the floors till Monday.
This came in the mail this morning.  A beautiful yard of fabric that i won from Karen at 'captitolaquilter'
Thank you so much Karen i love it. And love your card too.
Have to get busy old and new friends.  Next week we will have that giveaway!!!!
Have a wonderful day.  Quilt happy

I friends!
Cold with snow flurry's!
Pray for better weather on Sunday so our kids can Easter egg hunt.
About all i have done is clean and work on these presents.  And watch snow fall!!!!
All i like finishing them is putting on the Velcro and i will be done but i still haven't finished the quilt.  Thinking about adding some on each side.  It's only 57 inches across and i would feel better if it were 60 inches.  I though about squares on both sides but that's a lot of work , don't know if i will have time to do it.
I may just put a border on each side to match the top and bottom border.   That would work!!!
I think that's what i will do.
Have a great day. and thank you  to all my new and old followers.  In a few weeks i will have a thank you giveaway for my followers.

Hi friends!
It is so cold here!!!!
Got the battening to finish N.s quilt and some blue for my next one.
Now i have to get this house cleaned!!  By cleaned i mean wash all pictures and clean carpets, and every think in between
I hope it warms up some so i can get this quilt together and finished before Sunday.. We went to town at 3 o'clock and the temp was 38 degrees.   That,s winter not spring!!
I am so tired of this long winter.   So ready for some warm!!
Of course it will get way to hot in the summer.   It does that with global warming,  they say.
I think my bones have got to where they just don't like the cold at all. i would more to Fla. but i don't like hurricanes either.
We have bad enough storms here.
Hope every has a great sewing day.  Quilt happy

N's quilt

Hi friends!
Another one of those dreary , cloudy days!!!
I got three rows put together for N,s quilt. If i don't get busy i am not going to have it washed and ready
 by Easter.

I had another row done but some of my blocks got to big.     Don't know how they did that, i used the very same ruler on all of them. Any way i have to really work this week end to get it ready to quilt by Monday.

I got this in the mail today! isn't it great ? I won it from Patricia a
It,s called  'snowballs'.     I am thinking of baby blue and fussy cutting to make a great boy quilt for my shop.
Well that will have to wait until after Easter because as they say  'my plate is full' until then.
Hope your day is full of sewing.  Quilt happy

Hi Friends!
Look what came today!  I won these at' red pepper quilts' and sent by Jackie of canton village quilt works.
I have been so lucky in this blog hop.  Won several patterns.  That i will post about latter.

We had sis's and sister-in-laws birthday at brothers Sunday and i gave them the casserole carriers that i made them.   They seemed to like them.  I know m.a.d. will use hers to carry food to church.
Made sis a sewing machine cover and made s.i.l. a oven mitt and gave her a cook book.
They have a big front porch that we had our dinner on.  Works great.
Hope you have a great sewing day.  Quilt happy
