Addie will be 17 i think in early Jan, i hope to get Jarrod's done and Allison's to by their birthday in early Jan. But they are close so i can deliver them where Addie is 2 1/2 hours away. So i will give her's to her Thanksgiving.

Two more blocks for Mark's quilt.
Didn't get much done to it.
I was wore out last night for some reason, why i don't know.
We put plastic over some windows yesterday and i moved my plants inside so they want freeze! They say we might get one next Monday. I have had those plants for years.
Watched the Trion football game last night, it was played Friday night so a rerun.
Hagen did great , just can't help thinking that if Noah was playing too we would be headed for state. They have played together for years.

Tatum's pillow sham!
I finished it yesterday and quilted a little on her quilt.
I did get some battening and backing for a quilt yesterday so now i can finish one i started earlier.
Lose battening at Walmart for a king sized quilt was 29.00$ that will be the last time i do that.
I had ordered some from them for three quilts and it was just 37.00! Guess i will order some more.
I used that on Tatum's and Addie's quilts and those six wheelchair quilts. Also a table runner!
Working hard to day again!

Got Addie's quilt to the couch.
That binding looks black and them in different lighting it looks brown! But since it's half way sewed down it will stay.
I worked all day Sat. but yesterday we went to Church and dropped by the funeral home because my great-niece died. To young because of cigarettes. She and her sisters started smoking before the warnings!
Today has been one year since we lost Brad and his family!
I miss them every day! Still expect to see them pull up because he came over a lot.
Have a god one

We just took it easy yesterday! I sewed a little . This block had part of it a little off so i remade that part.
Used the fabric i got from Quilted Twins.
So i got one red and one yellow to use in Mark's quilt. The blue is for Jarrod's quilt.
The Christmas is for me!
I plan to place another order in a few weeks.
The yardage of blue was 3.99 a yard.
Can't beat those prices.
Plus they sent me a fat eight of a sample.
I will have to check that out.
Have a good weekend

Started working on Mark's quilt, trying out different blocks.
He wanted red and yellow in his quilt. I sent him a picture of these fabrics and he liked them.
He graduated this past May and he is in college and works evenings.
Friday Tommy's cousin came by on his way to Blue Ridge to spend the week with his sister and they will all come down here Wed. for a family dinner.
Some of the family came over to see him because they have to work Wed.
So i may blog tomorrow but i want Wed.
We have a great time together for our family reunion.
You know some times you will buy one and two or three are pretty and the rest is blah!
This is full of beautiful fabric.

This is what i was working on! Just love this fabric so made a simple table runner out of it.
I used a gold and cream piece for the binding so it wouldn't take away from the scene.
