The Weekend!

Hi friends!
Rainy day!
Shammah came and got her quilt that i made for her a couple of month's ago, she and Clint visited yesterday. She is the sweetest person!!!!!She is learning to make quilts and her start is beautiful.
Bentley came to see us to, hasn't he growed.  His mama had to work.
So his grandmother and grandfather came over with him
That's our child holding him, she is to young to be a grandmother , but she sure is enjoying it. 
Grandfather in the back ground.
He looks so much like his mother with a little of his father in the shape of his head, to us he is just beautiful as is all of our great grands.
Maybe Alex and Kim will bring Elijah over some time this week, if they do i will be sure to post pictures.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Beautiful day!
this is what i got out of our garden last night. 
Our orka is blooming but it it will be a while before we get any thing and our tomatos are looking like they want to get ripe, they are lighten up but it still be a while.
Missy came over after work to get her quilt, she said she loved it.Sent me a message later that she had it on her bed.
She works long hours at the cattle barn and had been up since 6:30 but stayed until 11: 30.

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
I made a few more of these yesterday and worked on two more things, think i will have to get creative with these because i though i had enough for all the way around but i miscounted.
May have to look really good to see if some has gotten under another project.
Just sent a message to blogger because it doesn't want to download pictures, just locks up when you try.
I have been working hard but blogger doesn't want to.
Talk to you tomorrow maybe things will be better then.
Have a wonderful sewing day friends.

 Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
 Look what came in the mail this morning!!
Last week i got a e-mail from Erica Jackson saying i had won a 25 dollar gift certificate on her blog  'Kitchen table quilting 'HERE.
Then i got a e-mail from the wonderful  Aubrey  Marshall from Southern fabric with my magic numbers.
This is what i got !!!
I am trying to just buy fabric that i need for quilts that i know i am going to make and i am going to make a   'i spy' quilt for two more g-grandsons
so the sock monkey will come in handy.
I am still making 4 patch's to go around my daughters quilt.
Hopefully i will get to work on it and another quilt today.
We ran around paying bills yesterday and i didn't get any thing done when we got home, just wore out.   Giving our money away does that to me.
Have a great sewing day friends,

Handmade Christmas

Hi friends!
Cloudy day!
This is my entree the Christmas hand made.
You can see all the entries   on sewcalgal blog
I couldn't think of nothing to do for this month so i went back and made some more ornies to hang on my tree

There is still time for you to join.   I didn't do the first month or two but i now enjoy taking part because i love Christmas.

These are very simple to make, I cut these out of fabric that sis gave and put muslin on the back sewed them wrong side together leaving a small unsewed place on the bottom to turn, the bear i remembers the ribbin and put it between and just had to hand sew the bottom closed.
I will be linking my blog to sewcalgal's handmade Christmas.
Have a great day friends.

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
I made this Sat. but didn't like it , it blends to much with the green doesn't even look like a star!
Laid this out but didn't put it together, didn't like it!
Changed over to Nette's quilt and worked on this.
We went yesterday to see a close friend, before Christmas she was walking miles every day now she can hardly get up.  At our age things can go down fast!
We used to joke that my mom caught leaves before they reached the ground but she got sick Christmas 9 years ago and was gone before Spring.
I think i like this, goes with the beachie theme, maybe a few sharks just for flavor!!!!!
She posted on facebook this morning that a shark almost came ashore it was so close to the beach!
I told her to keep the kids out of the water!!!!!
Don't want nothing to happen to my Grands!!!
Being a grand mother , all you can do is worry!!!!!!
And with 24 grands we do a lot of worrying.
Course our kids think we are silly but they will be grandparents one day and it will catch up with them!
My daughter already is and knows what i mean.
Have a wonderful sewing day friends.

Nette's quilt

 Hi friends!
Another rainy day!
Making 4 patches to put on point around Nette's quilt after the fabric gets here from  It should be here by Friday.  I hope!!!!
I finally finished the quilt that i thought 
 i would finish a few weeks ago.  Nette being in the hospital threw us for a loop.   Hopefully every thing is ok with her but i though i would be done with this quilt in May.
We hated missing Anna's and Kristian's graduation but these things happen and Nette needed us more!!
I hope Missy likes her quilt!!!
Having a day of    computer   problems but what day isn't?
The more toys we have , the more things we have to brake down!
My janome is doing the same thing that i had to have fixed last year.
Hate wasting good money on PLASTIC!!!!
Have a great sewing day friends.

Wet Garden

Hi friends!
Beautiful sun shiny day!!!!!!
See that tiny squash?
We had a storm earlier this week and all the corn laid down in the other direction and last night we had another , this time from the north and it laid it down the other way.
I have a good sized bell pepper , i would have a hard time picking it because of the mud!!
The weeds are higher than the orka but as soon as it dries out some Tommy will use  the weed eater.
It might get dry enough for him to plow it one more time but we will have to wait and see.
Have a great weekends friends.

Our 12th great grand

Hi friends!
Another rainy day, this is nine!!!
Our 12th great grands was born this morning!
Elijab Blake , 6lbs 13 ounces and 20 inches long.
At this moment there is not another one on the way that we know of.  The proud parents!!
The daddy is our Missy's youngest!
See what i mean about the fabric?  That white i got yesterday at a real good price because three yards had a seam down the edge.  Paid 3 dollars for three yards.
We had a DR. apt early this morning and went by Harbor Freight.
I have read about this blades so though i would try them and see if they are as good as the more costly ones.
While i was there i got me some clamps to hold my sandwich's  together when i spray baste.  The clamps were 99 cents and the blades we two for 1.98.  Can't beat that Price.
Have a wonderful sewing day friends.
