June finish's

Hi friends!
My one and only finish for this month.
It was so humid outside that this is the only good picture I got.
Missy sent me a picture of it on her bed.
She also fell in love with my string quilt so I will be saving my scraps to make her one one day.

Started putting together Anna's quilt. I had a few stars made from before I cut my finger.
Sent her a picture and she said more stars , that's right up my ally so I will be making more stars.
All of the stars I had made before!, two different ones!
This one goes to be ripped!
The smaller ones are friendship stars.
My designer's are my grands!

Michael's and Ashley's

Hi friends!
Worked a little while on this quilt yesterday
Think I am getting lazy from all this reading that he says is all I can do.
Adding another row to their quilt but stopped and decided to do another  row first before I added this one.

Michael and Ashley's quilt.

Hi friends!
I made a bunch of these before I cut my finger and had trimmed them so picked those out and started putting them together.
Got three rows together but haven't trimmed the rest that I have sewed together since.
 Maybe after Tuesday I can go back to work and wear a glove! Right now my bandage is to big. But it's looking so much better!

Hi friends!
Sis and I went to Rome Ga. this morning. Hit Ollie's and got some books.
Also Tommy needed a new egg fry pan!
His's  was about wore  out!!!!
Three is where the two tree's stood!
These are the one's we had cut!
It took two men to reach around that biggest one. Just not far enough away from the house! Plus it had a rotten streak!
Have a good one

Tree cut

Hi friends!
Our tree in the front yard was at least 100 years old or getting close.
We had it cut this morning. Tommy had been talking about it for years but after seeing all the tree's on houses from last Sundays storm, he went ahead and got them to do it.
It had a nice rotten streak all the way across the middle!
It was hugh!
They are doing a good job of cleaning up!
Now Tommy wants them to cut that old cedar that he had the top cut out of years ago.
So they will most likely be here all day.
Have a good one

Hi friends!
Our garden! we went small this year. At first Tommy planted lots but rain every day and grass higher than the orka made him cut it down.
This is all we have gathered so far this year.
We had a couple of days of dry and Tommy cut and we pulled weeds but then he had to go see Dr. Jeff! He back didn't like that at all!
Have a good one

Hi friends!
Ran into another problem!
Can't take out the bobbin with this big fat finger!
Guess I will sew until it runs dry!


Hi friends!
Love these trees!
Years ago we ordered some tree's  , we got 11 but this is the only one that lived and it has thorns 3 inch's long. Tommy doesn't cut it down because it has a nest in it that is used every year.
It was suppose to be a crab-apple tree but it's not.
Out magnolia tree had gotten real tall but that drought a couple of years ago killed the top so Tommy cut that part down and just keep the part that was living.
We are going to have to have the big oak in the front cut before it falls on our house.
That last storm did a lot of tree's that way and they destroyed some houses. We were lucky because it was coming in our direction but the ridge shielded us.
Thank goodness , got someone out and they said with bush's growing in the split  it could fall on us and could hit our Tommy got him to come and cut it . Right now he is busy cutting them off of house but will get here as soon as he can.
Have a great weekend

Hi friends!
A few days ago Missouri star had this for 1.25! Did you see it? Well I ordered it .
I had been looking for a small ruler and hadn't been able to find one at Jo Ann's.
Yesterday I decided to see if I could straight line quilt.
Took me all afternoon to get the walking foot onto my machine. Hard to use that hand without touching that big bandage!
After I got it on took me forever to change the needle and re-thread.
I am going to try it this afternoon..
Tommy was cutting yesterday and the wheel nearly fell off! His john deer is 13 years old and nearly completely re-built but a small part broke.
For 2.600.00 dollars looks like it would never tear up!

Hi friends!
I know it's a bad picture, taken through out window .
But see the deer? It came running up the road and went into our neighbors driveway. Last night we were watching the news and it did the same thing.
This quilt is over the quilting machine waiting for me to get to band-aid stage so I can get my hand in my cutting or quilting glove. Or pull on a quilt.
Block's I had cut and sewed before I cut my finger ,on Michael's and Ashley quilt.
Got a big stack waiting for a good trimming.
I just had to sew!!!
I took this apart and sewed it back right for Anna's Quilt.
Fabric I got at Q-Bees for Hubby a quilt since he still has to wash all the dish's until we go back to the Dr. He hadn't offered to mop but I grab a wet paper towel to get spots.
Another  two weeks and we go back.
I may have to brake down and sew a little something today!!!

Hi friends!
Yesterday we had company!
She was designing her baby sister a big girl quilt.
This is Gracie! Our great grand by my daughter's son Eli and his wife Kari.
Shania is her baby sister but she was asleep when they went to see a customer about a pool.
Eli cleans and installs pools and build decks and all kinds of building.  My super smart grandson.
We went to their house for a cook out before Mother's day. It was near Gracie's birthday so It was mother's day and her birthday.
She found her something in the mess that I call my sewing room.
We had to make name bracelet for her and her baby sister.
Didn't get a picture of that.
They came out and checked the internet yesterday , very weak signal! Another man then came out and climbed the pole and came to the door and  said we had a part flooded with rain water so he replaced that. Maybe it will stay on now.
It had been going off any time it wanted to.
They brought me back some bandage stuff , bless them . My babies are so sweet.
And Eli is my baby , he has my eyes!

Hi friends!
Tommy had a good one , all his daughter's came to see him.
I gave Missy her quilt!
She loved it! Lots of memories sewed into this quilt.
We had a bad storm yesterday. Tonia and Bobby  had to turn around below us and come another way because of a tree in the road.
Our power didn't go out but every thing else did . Not internet ,TV or phone except for our cells. Power was off in town and trees down every where.
They finally got our t v back on this morning, Tommy called them as soon as he got up!
So happy hubby!
They are coming out today to check every thing because our's went out before the storm got here and they were working on it when it  hit

This is what I was cutting before I cut my finger! Cutting many layers so that when I started to trim that tiny block I put my weight behind it! May have just nicked it if I hadn't been putting so much pressure on it.
I have been slowly sewing them into blocks but haven't trimmed any of them.
We start changing my bandage tomorrow! Go back in two weeks!
Have a good one

Hi Friends!
We had 12 last night but missed the ones that didn't get to come. Sis on the right after shoulder surgery! Tommy was our chauffeur.
Bonnie's new quilt, Isn't it beautiful?
Diann made her hubby a lap quilt.
They learned to do this one month that I missed. Isn't that cute!
Susan standing, Bonnie, Liz and Barbara Gail.
The backing for the veteran's quilt. we drawed his name last night from a list that Glenda Got up for us. And  the winner   was my brother-in-law!
Didn't even know he was on the list.
Going to carry my featherweight next month to sew all our blocks together and then send it to a quilter with a big machine.
We will present it in Nov. I think is when they decided .
Glenda had brought a big bag of fabric for us to use so we all got us some of that. Then Iva nell brought out a big bag so we divided that up.
Two ladies from south Ga. brought it to us.
When trouble got there she had us some cutting gloves! After I paid 22 dollars for mine. and some new blades for our rotary cutter.
I went with magazines to give away and some fudge and came home with two bags full of things.
Better than a quilt shop!
Have a great weekend friends!
