Table Runner

Hi friends!
Finished and on my table.
Great use of left over blocks.   Got to start quilting my Quilt of Valor today.
Got the binding sewed down on the baby quilt.
This is it laying on my chair in the living room, waiting on me to finish sewing the binding down.
This one just likes a few diamonds to be a finish. I start the next one before I finish one.
We carried the baby quilt to my Aunt, no pictures but one of the finished quilted.
Have a good one

September 25

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

Table Runner

Hi friends!I had some stars left from making my quilt of Valor so I made log cabin blocks from them after seeing it on blogland. Then I took them and made a runner from them.
I sandwiched them and thought I would quilt them first. As practice for my Quilt of Valor.
So yesterday I sewed in the ditch around the stars.
Makes a good quilting pattern with sewing strait line's on some of the sticks of the long cabin

Now I just need some binding.
Still looking for binding for this:
I have some grey that may just work!
So I guess I will be binding this afternoon!
Our blood work came back just fine! Was afraid they wouldn't have enough of mine but guess they did!
Have a good one

Busy Weekend

Hi friends! 
Only a small amount of sewing got done this week end. Sat. was spent cooking potato salad for fifty , we had about 70 and they took all left overs to the local homeless shelter, apparently we all had problems just making enough for 50!
But I did get a start on a baby quilt for my aunts great-grand to be.
She wanted the charm pack of pooh so that's what I am making it from. If it's not enough I have some blue charms that work .
Hoping to finish the top today! 
Yesterday we went to Church , then had homecoming , left there at two and got on the road to below Montgomery Ala. 
My sweet cousin last her husband to cancer.
While there we went to visit my Aunt in the nursing home. She didn't really know us but knew we belonged to her.
Then drove that long drive home. I walked into my house at 11 o'clock last night.
Plan on sewing today to rest me!
Had problems posting on the blogger site on my page so I went to internet explorer and got to it that way.
Have a great day, first day of fall , temperature all this week in the 90's

Table Runner

Hi friends!
Sewed my blocks together , them trimmed them to a match.
Sandwiched them!
Ready to be ironed and quilted!
We went and gave our blood and saw the Dr.  Tommy's lungs was clear so it must have been that rag weed across the street. But he's has been taking antibiotic for a few days , some he had left over last trip to the Dr. He told him and he said good. No flu shots yet they are  suppose to get to his office later this week.
So we will go back in a week or to just to get them.
They have so much trouble getting my veins to give blood. It's just started the last year. She says they roll!
We have the sweetest nurse, she lives down the road from where we live. She used to go to church with us.
Hopefully we will go see another aunt today if she is at home.
Have a good one
