Christmas is coming

Hi friends!
Don't forgot my GIVEAWAY.
I hate when we go to town for a few hours , it mess's up my day.
I started sewing last night and sewed a pin up under another part so I just quit. I will have to use the ripper to get it out.
Ended up on the couch finishing this last quilt for the nursing home.
We carried off the Thanksgiving garbage, went and voted in the run-offs, paid a arm and a leg for our pills and that is with insurance, hit Walmart then I went to the dentist.
Ruined my whole afternoon!
All the sewing I got done was on the couch!
Today we are staying at home so maybe I can get some work done on Christmas presents..
This quilt I am writing Tommy's cousin's name on so maybe it will find it's way back to her when they wash it.
It's a little bigger than the other seven I have made.
So she can cover her feet in bed or use it in a wheelchair and It's flannel on the top so extra warm.
We always had to do Tommy's mother's thing's that way so It would make it back to her.  Still some people would steal her prettier things.
I ordered these from last week, figured it would be this week before it came but got here last Sat.
Had a idea of what to do with the Christmas fabric and the footballs are for Tucker's quilt.
Better get to work.

Sunday verse


November 18

Nahum 1:3

3 The LORD is slow to anger but great in power; the LORD will not leave the guilty unpunished. His way is in the whirlwind and the storm, and clouds are the dust of his feet.

Hi friends!
Yesterday after my trim I got a good amount of work done.
Did two of these for Anna's pillow shams.  Just like adding a backing to them.
It was a hot chocolate kind of day!
The wind was blowing and in the 30's.
I finished the quilting on Anna's quilt and started the last wheelchair quilt. Got about half way with it and run out of full bobbins again.
I like to start in the middle and quilt to the edge then quilt all the way to the corner, do a complete turn and do the same thing .  So now I have two more forth's to quilt.
Should be able to finish this today.
This one is a little larger than normal but going to write Tommy's cousin's name on it and make sure she gets it.
Hope all my snow bound friends keep warm

Two Quilts

Hi friends!
Before I went to the dentist yesterday I starched and Ironed this.
Run out three bobbins on this: Dense quilting sure does eat up the bobbins, I know I have used seven or eight and no where near finished.
My apt. wasn't till three .
After-ward I read until bedtime.
Hair cut today  then maybe some quilting time.
Feeling great today. Tommy felt sorry for me and did the dish's last night.

Hi friends!
We were gone so much yesterday that I only got to one thing on my list!
But it's done now!  I sandwiched Abby's quilt.
It will look lots better after I starch and iron it.  Then I will start quilting.
This is what I use for my coffee in the mornings.
I had never turned it over until this morning.
Isn't that a cute spool?
Dawn  HERE  sent me this last year and I just now noticed that.
My wheelchair quilt is sitting on the ironing board waiting for me to iron it but their is no hurry because I can't quilt it until I finish Anna's quilt.
I am quilting hearts all over it. I did get some thread yesterday so Hopefully before I go to the dentist?
Rainy and cool here and has been to many days .
I might get depressed if not for my quilting and reading.

Tuesday, November 13, 2018


Hi friends!
Quilted yesterday until the thread run out.
I have looked and looked for my black thread, today I am buying some and I will find it then!
Isn't that the way it happens?
Sandwiched this yesterday, my last wheelchair quilt.
This is number eight. Not delivering them until Dec. 11th.
Still making these when I have a few minutes .   I hope to sandwich Abby's quilt today!
We will see !
I have a little over one third of Anna's Quilt quilted, so plan on working on that to.
But we all need to sew so I am still working on pillow shams .
Have a good one. 
Rainy Ga.

Michael and Ashleys Quilt

Hi friends!
No outside picture today because it's pouring down rain.
Now to finish the pillow shams.
Started quilting Anna's Quilt yesterday. Search and searched for my black thread but this was all I could find.
I know I have a bigger spool than that if  I can just find it.  Think I have two black spools! Where they are I don't know!
I have looked in all my tins where I keep thread.
Any way I got a start quilting Anna's quilt with this tiny spool. 
Was looking in my closet yesterday and found this:
Hadn't seen it in a few years , so I have a new Christmas shirt. Then I found another! Guess that means I need to clean out my closet!
We all know I had rather  sew!

Q-Bee's Quilt of Valor

Hi friends!
This morning our quilt group ,Q-Bees gave my brother-in-law his quilt of valor. His name was picked from a long list of names of men and women from the Menlo area that served in our armed forces.
The whole school did a program honoring our vets. I did a video of the whole service but my camera must not can record that long and I didn't know it so it's just until Roger walked up to get his quilt.
I didn't even know all this took place every year. Just one of many services when it gets close to Nov 11th. Most of my uncles  , plus my daddy , my brother and first husband served. By most of my uncles I mean lots because my daddy was one of 15.
The one with my Mom blacked out  next to him is my daddy. I had lots of Uncles that served during WW2. All of them came home!
None of them are alive now , my dad died in 1972.
But they all went and fought for our freedom. Then came home went to work and raised their kids.
I am proud of them all.
Have a good weekend

Anna's Quilt

Hi friends!
Yesterday I made the backing for Anna's Quilt.
Her quilt is under this!
Took it to the back porch and sandwiched it.
Now as soon as I get through quilting Michael's and Ashley's quilt I will have another ready.
Will have to starch and iron it today.
I stayed at home yesterday, not walking my track because I got three teeth pulled and Tommy would have a stroke if I did that.
Just about had one last night when I sandwiched that quilt.
If it was him it would be a different matter.
Have a good one
