I though about doing the next border like this! Wouldn't take long!
But I didn't like it so I changed to this...
Maybe I will get this border done this weekend.
The other is some fusible interfacing. All things I needed for Christmas gifts.
Our Jessie and her husband Richard came and eat breakfast with us this morning.
She took her turkey table runner home with her.
I have the best Grand's!
She graduates College this July so I am planning on making her another quilt for that. She is 22 and a sweetie.
Have a good weekend

This is the bad part making your edges straight.
It's so dry that the ground is pulling back from the cement every where around the house. Leaving little caves below!
We stayed at home yesterday so Tommy could clean his truck, He bought it new in 97 and it had to go to the truck hospital today. we got up early so I could follow him over there!
Have a good one

When it got bigger I started pinning a row on the top and bottom so I could sew two down each trip to the sewing machine.
Since Amy picked it out she should like it. She just saw a smaller version earlier that I made for my father's only living sister. No brothers , Just sweet Geneva his brother's wife that I made one for. Out of a family of 15 kids.
Have a good one
I am starting around and making all my grand's a quilt again and our 6 kids one.

I played with this Sat.
I know I need to get busy and make my Christmas but this got my attention
I am going to finish this and use it myself but when I make it again their will be some adjustments made. All I like is the hanger on the third ornament , sandwiching and quilting.
The ornaments are just to big!
I also made another couple of runs of tumblers so I am doing a little along on my Christmas list!

Didn't have time to blog yesterday!
This is a total hand stitched and hand quilter quilt for Jo Ann's grand.
I think she got off at 6.
There was only 7 that came , my sis is on vacation.
We don't meet again until Jan. And Iva'Nell has surgery the third of Jan so i don't guess she will be there then. Maybe after Christmas i can get mine done after that. She said last month that we could make them on the machine.
I was just trying to decide if that was after she saw all our hand stitching.
If not many shows up we will make more blocks, Charlotte had made two so i guess we all will.
Have a great day

The G-Gs decorated Missy with stickers off of the tomato's!
Abby cleaning up after Kelly makes her a plate.
Of course this was during our hard time! People covered us up with food!
I put tape on and held things for him!
Big help right but was having a bad day and needed to be with him!
I have put together one more 20 row and a half row of Tumblers.
Still trying to get a little sewing in every day.
Tonight is Q-Bees so i will post about that tomorrow.

This fell off my machine yesterday, my big machine. It's plastic , Would it hold with super glue?
It's off my brother!
It has another and that's what i am using.
I will say one thing about the election! They all say freedom of religion but a woman was put in jail because her religion told her not to sign a marriage licence!
Watched until 1;30 last night!!!

See the fall? I plan on white and then a strip of white and color going all the way around so this should be plenty of enough fall for a king sized quilt.
My lights and dark's are not lining up so i guess i will rip it all apart and redo it.
Wish i had really looked at it before now!
But i was just mindlessly sewing.
Oh well i can do that while i watch the news with Tommy.
Lost it in the kitchen this morning , could just see the girls wanting pringles, They always took me by the hand and lead me to where grand-paw keep his pringles.

Blogging friends are the best!
And i think my dear friends are the best ever.
Going to have to try one of those patterns, the table runner Dawn!
They really know how to cheer me up!
Hoping to get this king sized soon.
Have a good one
