Hi friends!
Raining today!
I got the borders on and today i am working on the backing!
I am going to put extra blocks on the backing.
Yesterday I put these tomato's up and will try to put up soup  today.
I said i wouldn't put up as much this year and it looks like the garden is going to rot. with all the rain!

Blogger is being a xxxx again. Doesn't want to do any thing you tell it to.
Have a great sewing day friends!!  Quilt happy

Garden and quilt

 Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I added 9 patches onto the bottom of Krissy's quilt and It's ready for a border to make it large enough for a full or queen sized quilt.  Maybe she will get years of use out of it. I have enough of the light green to do a good sized border  and maybe a small border of 'rock star.
should be ready to give to her Sunday when every one comes for Hubby's birthday dinner.


 we have been getting a lot of tomato's but i was putting up some today and a lot of them were pretty on the outside and rotten on the inside.
This is what we picked yesterday, two baskets nearly full!!
We carried some to Hubby's sister yesterday so he called her and told her a few minutes ago.
All this rain is rotting every thing, the corn was pitiful when i put it up and now the tomato's are rot tining
All my cute's are small and fat and full of water.
Blogger is really messed up today this was suppose to go up top!!!! pardon the blurry picture my camera is acting up. Going to get off here and put those tomato's up. Have a great sewing day friends.

Krissy's quilt part 2

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I got busy yesterday making blocks for Krissy's quilt.
Her quilt will be for a full bed so i have to figure out how many blocks for each row it takes.
One day i might just sew rows together but right now i love saching, plus it makes the quilt a little wider.
I got on yesterday after calling them Monday about that 'rock star' in blue and went straight to the blue so i ordered some .  It will get here some time next week !!!
So i guess i slow down so i can add it in when it gets here.
This is what i got a couple of days ago because it was all they had, they said.
Oh well it will get done in a couple of weeks any way.
Today is house cleaning day. so i had better get busy.
Have a great sewing day and weekend friends.

Krissy's quilt

Hi friends!
Hot day today!
This is block 2 of Krissy's quilt.  Long way to go.
My queen sized quilt is in the dryer now , hope it doesn't shrink much. I had a hard time getting it into the washer , it was so big.
This is what i did yesterday ,  and the reason i only made one block. 6  quarts of ' bread and butter' pickles
we went out and picked this morning and it was already hot.
Thats  hubby way down at the end of the row of pintos!!! 
Well friends, i have got to get busy, hope you have a great sewing day.

Kristan's quilt

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
This is the first block on Kristan's  blue and green quilt.
I have pulled a lot of blue and green fabric for it, and we decided to make a pillow out of her rock star fabric.
I finally got all the seams picked out of my blue baby quilt and got it quilted again. The first time i quilted it i was going with the stretch and it folded all over the back .  This time i turned it around and it looks a whole lot better.
But i have fooled with it so much that i don't feel like it's worth any thing. I may not put it in my shop!!!
This is my next UFO , my mother-in-laws hand stitched Bow Tie quilt.  Don't know how long it will take me to finish it , it needs unpicking to.
Going to put up 'Bread and Butter pickles now so have a great sewing day friends.

Quilt and a win!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I don't think i posted any after pictures of Jarod's quilt.
I won a pocket book Pattern a couple of week ago from   Emily at mommysnaptime.
She was giving away one of Samatha's bag pattertns patterns by mrs. h.
I had won one of her pattern's before and made a bag for my granddaughter.
So this time a choose a satchel , haven't made it yet but i will.
I love this pattern. i won her rosy patchwork pattern and loved it.
Our creepe Myrtle is finally blooming, it usually starts in June but this year it was July.
I love that old bush that hubby's mother planted many years ago.
We had one in the front but hubby put the porch over it.
Hope you have a great day friends.
