Little finish's

Hi friends!
Finished the table runner and four place mats. I had already done the table runner just took a while to finish the place mats
Didn't put them on my dining room table because I am in the middle of quilting a quilt.
Came across a cute quilting  template of Christmas lights so I draw-ed it on to paper and went from there.
Got 1/4 of it quilted and realized I didn't like it!
So it sat for a while because I do not like to take out that much sewing!
Then I decided to just go for it any way and Have worked on it this week.
Still like about 1/3 of it , it's a large queen sized .
Then I finished Jackson's T-shirts and quilted some  more of them.
So I did get a little done yesterday.
We went to town and paid bills , bought groceries and that always takes so much time.
I had rather be sewing!!!!
Stay warm

Jacxkson's Quilt

Hi Friends!
Getting to the last of the T-shirts.

I think I like two more and then I can finish quilting them. I quilted some red ones already.
Then I will be looking for something to join them together. I have some aqua that just might work. but I will see later.
I usually lay it out with different colors and see what looks best.
He want want any girly colors! Kelly has four boys and they have no sisters unless you count cousins Tatum and Addie.
Tatum and Addie are my grands!
Its 12:30 and 62 degrees here in N. West Ga.

Of course I have seen these yellow bells covered in snow before. and there is a chance this weekend.
Have a good one

Gaven's Quilt

Hi Friends!
I have been working on these blocks , making quit a few.
This may be enough for his quilt.
Some of them are like this!
I have got as far as to sew together two rows.
Yesterday Tommy had to see Dr. Jeff so afterward we went to see my brother.
Just to visit for a while. I worry about him!
His Dr put him on blood thinner, course they put me on it after my stroke but he has never had one. I assume it's to keep him from having one.
He has problems with his legs, his Dr. says from all those times he hurt his back.
Nerve damage !
Men will hurt theirs and just not go to the DR. But what can a DR. do.
Nothing! Give you pain meds. and we all hate pain meds.
I take a low grade pain relief med but refuse to take any thing more. When I had my first prescription I called all the drug stores and was assured that It was not habit forming. They lied!
Was told to take four a day, I took a half one for years at night so I could sleep with out pain. Some people say pain goes away when they lay down, mine doesn't !
I love my baby brother, He was always their for me.
Sis needs to have surgery on her knee but is putting it off as long as she can, She is ten years younger than me.
I am blessed just to still have them both.
Hope the weather gets better where you are.

String Quilt

Hi friends!
Had to make some more joining strips for my GAYG.
For that matter I still have lots of lose blocks that need joining together.
I forgot to take pictures of me pinning the front and back strips down and sewing them down.
Already sewed the back side down to this row of blocks.
That's two rows of strip blocks sewed together.
I cut some a little smaller and started joining the lose blocks together.
Made one more row and a start on another.
Got a lot done on it yesterday, had been putting it off because I needed to make those strips to join the rows and blocks, just laziness!!!!
I know on u tube they say one inch but cut your strips larger if you want to. Mine are bigger and they work just fine , plus they are lots easier to work with.
Hope every one is stafe and warm

Place Mats

Hi friends!
I made a table runner last month so this month I am very slowly binding the place mats.
I have finished three!
Just one more on the couch!
I like to make a practice piece before I make something for some one else.
That way you see all the trouble spots as you go.
We went to get my hair cut this morning and there is water running across roads all over the place.
Tommy worries about me getting it cut there because their are some big trees right in the front yard. There are still houses sitting where trees fell on them last year on Father's Day. They either didn't have insurance or had sorry insurance one.
Got this in the mail this morning, what cute fabric!    HER BLOG
If you are not following her blog you need to.
I won it on a recent giveaway she had.
Hope every one is safe and warm, still raining here!
Going to have to build a Ark.

Gaven's Quilt

Hi friends!
Worked all day just making up blocks for his quilt.
Then I laid them out to see how far I had got.
Still need some more .
I looked for more fabric and found some blue with balls on it.
He is all boy just like his brother.
Wish I had some with trains or trucks but I don't
This is the view out my sewing room window.
We have got 4 inch's so far this week and right now Tommy is feeding the dogs because the next rain is about to hit!
Our dogs will not eat with it raining on them.
They want eat or drink if we go off overnight.
They are a mix, Father, a Akita and mother, Shepard.
One was my birthday present years ago from my sweet son and his family and the guy that wanted the other didn't show so they gave it to Tommy.
Hope your day is great

Jackson's Quilt

Hi friends!
I am so glad I went to Walmart for some more interfacing after fighting for over a week with that other.
It's working great now.
Now I am making progress on his quilt.
It's raining buckets here and suppose to keep it up until Friday. We already have had so much that the ground is soppy and creeks and river's are at flood stage now .
We may float away.
Every one of the family lives on hills except for my daughter so I know she hates this.
Some of her family is in low laying area's to. My son lives near a  Lake. But he is kind of on the side of a hill like we are .
We are way over normal already for this year and finished way over for last year.
Praying for a change in the jet stream so we can dry out.
I want to plant my plant Tommy got me. Plus a garden in a few weeks.
Have a good one

Valentines Day and string blocks

Hi friends!
I am still working on my string blocks , just not as much.
Yesterday was valentines day.
So Tommy went to town with me telling him no chocolate.
He did good!
A beautiful card!
In a pot with dirt! Just what I wanted! I stuck my hand in side till I hit dirt
If spring ever gets here He will dig a hole and we will plant it out side. Yay!
He always buys the sweetest cards , His daughter's say that about him and it's true.
I bought one of these plants years ago and planted it out back but it died. so I will use his green thumb this time.
For supper we had BLT's , Not very romantic but so good!
Have a great weekend

Landon and Tori's Quilt

Hi friends!
I have been thinking! I talked to Colette and she said fading the grey into the teal so I have been trying to find a way to do that..
This is the lightest grey I have.
It's very light, think I have another that  is just a litter lighter than the other darker  grey.
I am playing with these right now will let you know how it works out.
Not much was done yesterday. Tommy was sick most of the day and when I went to walk I got weak so one lap was all I did.Last night after a light supper I read.
This is a old one Sis got at McKays the last time we went, was only 25 cents but was really good.
About a sister fighting to save her baby sister's life.
But It involves Tombs, and murderers, and spies! Was really good.
Maybe today will be much better

Gavin's Quilt

Hi Friends!
I started putting together rows of blocks on Gaven's quilt. He is one of our great grands.

Got two rows together With blue cornerstones.
This is Gaven sitting under their Christmas tree.
A cute sweet boy with a mischievous twinkle in his eye.
He is two now.
So it's about time he had his own big boy quilt.
Tommy is sick today , guess I was sick Sat. night and it wasn't my antibiotics. Since he has it now
Hopefully it will be short like mine was.
I have finished with my antibiotics so maybe now I will feel like doing something.
Haven't done much sewing in the past few days.
Bad when the cure makes you feel so bad.
We are getting our one day of sunshine today so I intend to walk.
Have a good one
