Hi friends!
We played pass the baby yesterday , because we had great grands all day long.
I may be biased but i thing we have the prettiest great grands in the world.
Of course we have the prettiest grands too.  Could be why the g-grands are so pretty.
We had kids all day long and had the best time!!!
It's lots of work but i really enjoy having it here every year.
Hubby's comes early because they have theirs with their other family's later. And my so has his early with his
wife's family so my two kids come at 4 and visit for a while and eat a little because they are already stuffed.
We had kids playing out in the cold all day long but they we tougher them me , that wind would go threw you like a knife.
We just had a great time!!!!
Have a great day friends.

Tatum's and Addies

Hi friends. Cloudy!
I made Addie lou's first block .  That's all i have made so far. She wants purple black and white.
I am still binding Tatum's quilt may have it finished tonight
I free motioned quilted it in the solid black with black thread so it wouldn't show.
Not very good at it yet but intend to keep trying.  Right now i am so behind on christmas gifts that i don't have time for practice unless it's something i am making.
I still have one more birthday thing to finish before Thanksgiving.
Have a great day friends.

Wreath and giveaways!

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I made this wreath for my mom before she died in 2005, all i did was change the bow because it was looking bad.  It;s easy to make bows with wire ribbon that you can buy a lot of places.
I got mine a few years ago when DIL had a store and she put her Christmas things on sale after Christmas.
She got out of the store business before they moved across the state. She is now assistant principal .
I think she likes that much better.
Was talking to a friend by e-mail last night about peach clobbers so i had to make one.You made me hungry Sandie!!!
This is the ribbon that i am making my bow for the back door out of.   If i can just find my wreath hanger I will take a picture of it and show you. Maybe tomorrow.
Don't forgot we are doing this Thursday and be sure and come back.  I will give away fabric and as soon as it is over on the 26 i will have my b-day giveaway of more fabric!
So be sure to join in the fun!!!
Have a great sewing day friends.

Hi friends!
I have Tatum's quilt ready to quilt but have to get Thu with mine first.
I have been working on my wreaths tiring to spruce them up, finished one and put it on the front door but i need to do a overhaul on the one i put on the back.
Don't forget  the blog hop with giveaways that starts thursday the 21th and runs through the 26th.
I will be giving fabric as always.  My birthday is the 24th so as soon as this one is over with i will have another giveaway for that.
Painted these now waiting for them to dry so i can put them on my wreath.  I looked every where and that was all the pine cones i could find.
I may paint some more balls gold if i have any more , these were in my crafting bags.
 Have a great sewing day friends.

Hi friends1
Beautiful day 68 degrees!
My free motion quilting is suppose to be hearts and leaves.
I though about doing my Christmas quilt but it would take so long!!!!
Maybe with practice i will get better. This is just the second thing i have done.   My Christmas pillow was the first.

I just did loops on this!
Got to think up some thing else to quilt like that. I will need to do two baby quilts next year and that maybe as soon as i can do it.  I will have to make me a practice piece. Or a bunch of them to practice with!
Have a great sewing day friends!

Looking forward to Christmas

Hi friends!
Suppose to be  Beautiful day but the sun is not out yet.
Last Sunday i made some pot holders for Christmas bags.
I won some scraps that i will blog about next week and used a lot of those to make these.
This is the back of one of them.
Cute fabric isn't it.
I made some more but on the last i was getting tired so the last one will go in my pile  .I am feeling better, thank you Lord.
Never sew if you are too tired because that's when you make mistakes!!!
I am going to do some free motion quilting this afternoon. If it's good or bad i will report on it Monday.
Have a great sewing weekend friends.

Donna's block

Hi friends!
I forgot to blog about this earlier, I made it last night and then forgot that i did.  That's bad!!!
As Tommy says ' I've sleep since then'
It's called a friendship star, i believe and very easy to make.
I was feeling really bad and just run it up in a few minutes.  I was afraid to do any thing that i had to put some though into because i felt so bad.
Feeling a little better, made hamburger steak and fries for supper tonight. Food has not tasted right for a few days but that was good.
Have a great day friends.

A lot better

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
I like this so much better!!
All i did yesterday was put on these borders, we went to the Dr. and we both have that virus that's going around. So that's all i got done, just cutting and sewing on. Layed on the couch and read most of the day.
Went to sleep on the couch about 8 and then it was 5 this morning before i could go back to sleep, I know better , every time i sleep during the day i can't sleep .  I just slept a hour but it always works that way.
Hope for a better day today. Have a great sewing day friends.  Don't forget our givaway next week, blog hop with giveaways.
