Another start and a top!

Hi Friends!
Working on another t-shirt quilt, for a friend of mine's brother. The shirt are just like some my brother has. He worked with the cruisers until he got to where he though he was to old. He's younger than I am!
Got another Christmas top finished to.
Just two more of those to go! I may carry a scrap when we go to Chattanooga and see what I can find at JoAnn's.
Just happened to notice that those poinsettias were the same color that the panel was.
It rained here all day yesterday and all night last night , still at it but they say it will move out before the trick or treaters hit.  Just hope we have some! Since they started having the walk in town for the safety of the kids we may get a grandkids but that's all.
Have a good day

Burp Cloths

 Hi friends!
Keep adding to the pile!

This is the last one I made last night.
Spent a lot of time looking yesterday for boy fabric and had lots more than I though.
I found this for the back of the changing pad.
And this for the next Christmas quilt.
Trying to make each one different.
Earlier I couldn't post pictures at all but keep om trying
Raining buckets here today and then I'ts suppose to turn cold. Maybe It will kill that ragweed!
Have a great day

Flannel for Baby Things

Hi friends! 
They were really low on flannels with blue in them. But grey will work! And the print is baby things.
I cut some backs for more burp cloths with that. I will shop a little later for more flannels in blue. I had some that Juliarose {Juliarosequilts}sent me.  She sent me pink and blue!  But I have used up the blue!
I know I want to add snowmen to Kim's quilt but maybe not this!
I have another that might work. Maybe It wont be so loud!
I also got this, not big enough for blankets but can make small stuff . I wanted to make some receiving blankets to. 
But I think I have some coated cotton that will make a great backing for a changing pad.
So may make that next! About to start on a t-shirt quilt.
Going to be busy around here until Christmas.

For Baby

Hi friends!
Yesterday I worked on burp cloths! A couple with bears and a yellow one since they will be for a boy.
Made another yellow.
After taking this picture I dropped my camera so I though it must be time to quit.
Our trees are turning!
It's beautiful this time of year.
Since these last couple of pictures were made this morning I guess I didn't break it.
Planning on making a few more burp cloths and then some bibs.
Talk to you tomorrow.

Christmas sewing

Hi friends!
Adding strips around my Christmas panels for My girls.
We stopped after our trip to the lung specialist yesterday and I got some more reading material.
All they really did was get all his info , check his lungs and change his inhalator,
His lungs were clear after a strong round of antibiotics.
They think if he uses his inhaler every day he should quit having Bronchitic. He has had it five times this year.
So we go back in six weeks.
I have at least started my Christmas presents! Working on 3 and 4 , trying to find ways for them to be different.
Have a good one

Playing With Fabric

Hi friends!
Seeing what goes together with the strips that I bought today.
Using the strips as a buffer to loud fabric.
Made a mess on the bed! But I may have found some that will work.

The Past

Hi friends! 
Just kidding! This is from a few years ago! But Kim was just wishing for snow, my step daughter.

Hi friends!
I spent my fifteen minutes of sewing yesterday quilting this.
We had to go see Dr. Jeff and pick up a few things at the grocery store. Seems like that the only place we go , to Dr.s and buy groceries.
Washed this one yesterday so today I will de-string it!
Make sure I clip all the threads off it and press it. Still have to put my name on it and stitch down the label. 
Hoping to finish quilting the top one today.
Have a fun day

One Finished Quilt of Valor

Hi friends!
Finished one Quilt of valor.
Now I start on the next one.
This is a donated quilt top that I brought home to finish.
Got it sandwiched over the weekend. I think I am just going to follow the seams to quilt it. and then I will  bind it and will have two to give to two Veterans this year. 
Need to finish them so I can get some serious Christmas quilting done.
They called with us a apt for  Tommy to see  a lung specialist for next week.
Since he has had Bronchitis five times this year they though he needed to go.
He welded and smoked for years.
Wish us luck!
Have a good one.
