Noah's birthday and work

Hi friends!
yesterday was Noah's birthday, he turned 14.
He is our youngest girls son.
It's his father that is doing work on our house.
I had some fabric from his quilt so i made him this pillow.
That was the fabric that i spent Sunday looking for. It the same fabric i used in his quilt.
They got a good bit done yesterday even  with the rain. Did some before it started and worked under roof of the porch during the rain.
It looks like a new house.
I got up early this morning to carry Angel to a  pediatrician Heart Dr.
My daughter took her to the Dr. when she was sick and she thought her heart was beating to fast.
This Dr. thought it was because she was sick! It was beating 90 times a minute down there but he said that was just a little fast.
Mine and her mothers heart does the same thing.
I took her on to school, this is her senior year.
Got to get some sewing done today.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Grandbabies and work

Hi friends!
My Anna banana was home from college this weekend and i got to give her the pillow that i made her.
Alisha has to mug for the camera!!!
They were on their way to church !  They were having a lock down last night!
See the front of our house, it's beginning to look like a new house!
It's really looking great.
They put two windows in the living room that Tommy is working on.

One on each side of the chimney !
They would have got a lot more done but one window wouldn't fit  so son-in-law had to go and swap it.
He is out there working now but will go home soon because Tonia gets off work at 1 o:clock.
Have a great weekend friends. Hugs

work and new bags

Hi friends!
Beautiful weather!
Made another bag!!
A pink 'camo' bag!
They got a good bit done yesterday! This is our sun room.
Our new bed room window..  They were only here 3 1/2 hours because he had to go to get windows and vinyl before he could start work.  Then he left early for Noah's ball game that was an hour  drive away.  They won !!! He will be over here tomorrow for a while .
I started another bag but not finished with it yet.
This is the pockets and lining.
My order still hasn't shipped and i ordered it Tuesday.
I may have to call and see what happened.
This morning out internet went out at 9 o:clock and it didn't come back on until after 5.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Never on time

Hi friends!
This was made day before yesterday because for some reason my small camera refuses to put pictures on my computer.
The man got here at 12:30 and the power was off until 4:30, so no sewing after . But all my picture are  on the other camera. The cord seems to not work any more , it's not the computer because the other camera works just fine.
I got this made that far while waiting for the man to come to turn it off.
Got the outside made and the inside lining
I always put 4 or 5 pockets in the lining.
Of course he came and i couldn't get any more sewing done.
Try to get it finished today along with another bag that i need to put straps on.
I am waiting on a order to start 2 more quilts so maybe it will get here soon.
They always send me a e-mail when it ships and they haven't yet today.
I think i ordered it Tuesday, the last time i ordered from them that were much faster.
Have a great sewing day friends.

Hi friends!
Another beautiful day!
They have closed up more of the wall on the front of the house.
Finished up all the roofing yesterday and we are no so patiently waiting for them to come and turn off the power so we can run it to another meter.
The roof on the porch Tommy did last year but now except for that tiny spot over the porch every thing is green.
It didn't leak so i don't for the life of me know why it has to be all the same color!
Insurance company's think we have as much money as they do!!!!
Don't they know we have already give them all our money?
I made this one standing behind a tree because the sun was behind the house.
I worked on a bag yesterday but if the power is off, i want be sewing this afternoon and it's beginning to look like he got lost.
He was suppose to get here at 9 o'clock and it's 10:30 now
Have a wonderful sewing day friends.

Hi friends!
Beautiful day!
They started work on our house yesterday.
we got son-in-law and his crew over and they will be working for a while.
We are having 3 windows changed out, plus new roof where the old that Tommy hadn't got to yet had to be replaced..
Insurance said it all must match!!!
Plus all new siding all around the house.
Last Sat. we got a window on the front ready inside.
Them we moved all the furniture away from it.
Then as they were going to take out a old flue Tommy took off the cover and realized that his father hadn't put a cap over that hole so i had inches of soot to clean off the floor.
We tracked soot all the way out the back door from the front bedroom!!!!
I mopped until 10 o'clock Sat night , mopped the kitchen Sunday and mopped the whole house yesterday!!! I also cleaned carpet from us walking soot all over it.
I am sore from mopping!!!!!
Wish that would make you lose weigh but don't think so.
After they left it was really to dark to get a good picture.
This is the outside wall of the front bedroom, they striped off the old siding insulated it and put new boards over it except where they are putting a new meter tomorrow.
No sewing but i did get some scraps out to get rid of pieces that are not big enough.
May do some more today.
Have a wonderful day friends.
