Christmas Eve

 Hi friends!
We had Christmas eve with my brother, his family and my sister.
Noah, his dad Greg sitting and Clint standing.
 Sis made Clint a quilt. She tied it!
Tommy and my sweet brother.
Our Tree , I finally got it decorated . Now it's time to take it down.
Santa was good to Tommy, he had worn out his recliner so we got a new one.
New Chair to nap in.
He wanted to buy me one to but I told him I never sit long enough to use one. And they are hard to use in front of a sewing machine.

Nearly There

Hi friends!
Wouldn't you know after buying 5 yards of navy , I don't have enough left to bind!
He wanted this shirt right in the middle because that was his station.
Several of my brother's cars are on t-shirts in this quilt.
He and Margaret belonged for years and he always had a old car he was working on.
I would offer to make them one but just about burned out with t-shirt quilts at the moment.
Lots of work involved in making these.
Have a good day

Few of My Grands

Hi friends!
We went to my daughter's last night to see her kids. Angel is right in the middle! 
She and Cameron drove all the way from Texas to spend a few days with her mother, She has more bothers but some was at collage and some busy.
 Anna, Jessica and Alisha is on her left and Eli and Anthony are on the right. Proud of all my grands.
Good to see them because Anna had to work on Thanksgiving and Alisha didn't come.
My daughter has the flu , just hope Tommy doesn't get it. He stayed well away from her.
Did a little more work on this yesterday.
Five quilt tops that I must finish by Christmas Eve.
Say a little prayer for me

Random Things

Hi friends!
I had one block left after I made five rows.
I decided to use the last block as a backing for one just like it so I will be working with jack the ripper for a while taking the backing off and adding that t-Shirt .   Fifth row is now waiting on the couch.
Then I plan on adding a navy border to make it the right size..
Hoping to make some real progress on it these next two days.
It's going to make a really colorful heavy quilt.
Haven't sewed the tops of the strips down yet, when I finish I will change to navy thread for the top stitching.
They are saying rain today , then colder and next week a chance of flurries. With it laying on the mountain.
It's not even winter yet!
Shower tomorrow so I have only today to finish the baby quilt. 
This is the present with out the quilt I am working on.  Got to get busy!
Have a great weekend.

T -Shirt Quilt

Hi friends!
The next row was a little more compilated. . Using three blocks and two insignias!
Trimmed them then sandwiched each one and quilted them.
Then I started joining them all together.
One finished row!  
I have two more rows to go I think. It may be three then I will add border to make it queen sized.

T-Shirt Quilt

Hi friends!
I worked a while before our Dr. apt.
Joining blocks together.
Our apt was 3:45 but Tommy was restless so we left before three and rode around.
I got three rows put together except for top stitching and before we left.
After the DR. office we sat a while at the drug store and started getting hungrey. We stopped and ate the driest  hamburger I have ever seen.
Neither one of us eat all of it or the fries! But it held us up while we bought grocories.
Then I was sick all night!
Needless to say we will not stop there again.
So nothing else got sewed! Hoping to get some more joined and maybe top stitched today.
Not feeling at my best !

Spend yesterday trimming these blocks and started putting them together.
After I put together three I laid that and a forth block out on the bed.
He wanted a queen sized quilt so I will have to add a small border. Planning on using the navy blue that he wanted to join his blocks.  Hoping to make a lot of progress on this quilt this week. Just have to finish that boy quilt for her shower this Sat. to.
