MY Quilt Finish , one for my aunt

Hi friends!
I finished this last week and visited my Aunt to give it to her yesterday.
She  is the last of my father's family my daddy's baby sister, i have my aunt that was married to J.D. but that it. They were a really big family with 15 kids but we have lost them all but these two.
So when i started this quilt i wanted it for her.
She is just 8 years older than me!
She has always been a favorite because we are close in ago, She and my Aunt Betty jo , my mother's baby sister are the same age.
She had a heart attack 2 years ago and when we got their they had put in a stint and she was still in recovery but they let me and sis in to see her, She was really in good spirits just like always.
She had always been a card! Would crack you up talking to you. She is a blessing!
Petted me to death when i was little.
Once said" If spoiling could hurt you Barbara [me] would be cankered."
She is a sweetie!
Last night we had some of that potato soup Plus Biscuits and and fri-baked orka!
Tommy can't have fried food so we came up with this way of cutting down on grease.
And of course our tomato's , both the tomato's and orka came from our garden.
I made these sweet  pickles last Friday and i am going to try to make some more today if i have enough cucumbers. Chicken salad with any other pickles will not be eaten at this house.
I put it in potato salad to.
Have a good one

My Day

Hi friends!
I now have all 12 of the blocks made for David's quilt.
Maybe i will get time today to add them to my center.
Then i will know if i need a few more are not.
I am a messy biscuit maker. I make biscuits the old fashion way with my hands, my mother and first mother in law both did them that way.  Tommy had the left overs for breakfast this morning.
We got to laughing so hard during breakfast that we lost our breath. I never knew that marriage could be so much fun until i married him.
We had Potato soup with biscuit's  last night for supper. We never eat the way you are suppose to!!!
For our veggies we had tomato slices fresh from the garden to go with it.
One night we had gravy and biscuits and tomato's!!!
Our yard is getting in bad shape from the lack of rain.
If we don't get rain soon we will lose our garden. Tommy watered it again last night. That's the only reason it not dead. These are going to be some expensive veggies with all the watering.
Have a good one

Hi friends!
 Just picked!
Yesterday! It stormed all around us but we didn't get a drop.
Remember this one, well i finished quilting it.
I also got some more of these done during the weekend.
Yesterday we went to see Tommy's artery Dr. , they always set a apt. for him to get a ultra sound right before he sees him. He got good news! .
He had surgery in 2008, they had to clean one of his artery's in his neck. So it's a yearly thing.
Then we went to Red Lobster .
Our favorite!
Those biscuit's are better than desert!
Hope you had a good day.

Tumbler Quilt

Hi friends!
Changing out the bobbin!
I finished quilting my tumbler quilt. But before i finished!!!
If you look closely you will see that my gloves is hung up in the thread!
After i have had them on a while they stretch. And the tips slide off my fingers! If my finger had been in there i would have been in trouble.
Then i trimmed all around ! Ready to bind!

Working on that now!
I quilted big flowers all over it!
Another one bits the dust!!
Have a good one

David's Quilt

Hi friends!
Didn't work on quilting my tumbler quilt yesterday, maybe this weekend!
I put David's quilt on the bed tpo see how much i needed.
I think 12 more should do it for a big twin size.  I cut a few more, have ten cut!
Tommy sharpened my scissors for me, these had gotten very dull , have used them for years.
I sewed two on each side of the big star.
As far as i got while Tommy was watering the garden, second time this week but we still haven't got a drop of rain.

David's Quilt

Hi friends!
I did a rough drawing of how i wanted Davids quilt to look at 5 in the morning yesterday after going to bed at 12.
Put this around the star, i wanted black but didn't have any good. Didn't want to buy if i could help it. so i got this.It's dark blue with white pin holes so it looks black.

I made this  block , i am going to use sports in each block.
After all he is 13!
Hopefully it want take me to long to finish his quilt with all the scraps that i have from  madeing quilts for my grandson's through the years.
Have a good one

Not doing much!

Hi friends!
I did get my quilt ironed yesterday but that's about all, we went over to visit brother and sis in law and when we got home sis came over and stayed a while.
You can see all the spots that i will need to move pins!
Cut a few more tumblers for a Christmas quilt for son and his wife.
Finished ironing it and it's waiting by my machine for me to get the energy to quilt it.
I got up at 5 this morning and sketched out a pattern for Davids quilt, was hurting so i didn't go back to sleep. I may take a nap after while!
Will have to wait for Tommy to get threw outside so i want worry about him!
He is weed eating the garden so a snake wont bite me.
He took his lawn mower in there Sat. and cut all the grass around the edges.
He does  his weed eating while it's still cool in the morning's. he can't stand it outside when the humidity is high, he can't breath
I got some orka, cucumbers, peppers, squash and one just barely pink  tomato today.
Have a good one

Father's Day

Hi friends!
We had three daughter's yesterday coming to see their daddy.
Only thing that would have made him happier would have been to see Missy to. He heard from her on face book last night. I showed it to him.
I tried to sharpen this picture up but it didn't work. To much light and windows.
Kim carried Bentley's quilt to him yesterday and his mother sent me a message that they loved it.
Now i think Davids will be next. I made him one years ago!
This is the one i made him years ago. Sis had given me a bag full of strips and i did a fast quilt with them.
This is one block for it! His was the only one of the little's that i didn't put a star in because they are my stars, all 23 of them.
When i started making them quilts i started with the youngest and worked back up to the oldest. and
he is the baby.
Have a good one
