One Down

Hi friends!
Just got a email saying my order from fat quarter shop is on it's way. But yesterday I dug out what little fabric I had left over from last years Quilt of Valor and made one block.  Flags on both but a different shade of blue on them!
Finished one star.
I had this to and now I think I may have some more some where , would take a lot of digging .  I put one of these in last years quilt.
I looked yesterday but  stopped with these and made my block.
Well if you need me I will be in that jungle called my sewing room.

Shut down mostly

Hi friends!
 All of my masks that I made have been picked up.
My Jessica works at a nursing home.and I am worried about her.
And my daughter went back to work today after being off for two weeks.
I got these out because its seems to relax me to work on them.
Another Santa painting.
I have a good supply of these ! I had put them up at before Christmas and just got them back out.
Just trying to stay safe here. Tommy thinks he has to have gas, just hope no germs there because I will be the one to go inside and pay.

Hi friends!
Some one said yesterday that these bindings would work. I new I had a bunch of them so this is the first.
This way you have to cut , press and then sew them together so it takes longer.
Things are so pretty out side.

Stay safe friends

Stay Safe

Hi friend!
Finished these for Abby and Tonia , they are closed but still filling prescriptions  and handing them out the window at the drug store. Plus all of them go home and are around lots of family . Don't want them to get it!
Need to make some now for my  Jessie and for Allie. I know Jessica is still working. Worried about all my family out in this germy world.
Got to get busy and make some more.

Staying Home

Hi friends!
Making a mask!
Don't know whether Tommy will wear one but at least we have one.
Started my next one.
Never did get to  the quilting on the quilt but their is always another day.
I have been reading on my kindle instead of sewing.
With four people buying books for it there is always something good to read.
So I have been fine staying at home.
Hope you are to
Stay safe

Prayers for our nation

Hi friends!
Planning on working on this today and finding a face mask pattern that I like to see about making some for us.
When Abby went and got our groceries , she couldn't find potatoes are frozen biscuits.  Tommy eats two every morning so we just buy the ones already made. I can't make two , maybe 12 but not two! So he has gotten use to them. Not me!
But we have a bag in the freezer so maybe she can find some before I run out.
I am afraid it will get much worse before it gets better and with stupid Nancy back no one will get any help.
She must want to run for president.
But making a lot of enemies!
Stay safe friends!

One Mug Rug

Hi friends!
The sun shined yesterday!
Tommy mowed and I cleaned and moved my flowers out to the car port so they could get some sun.
In two weeks the only place we have gone was to get water and to the drive thru slot at the post office. Maybe like that for the next month!
Doesn't look like it's getting better.
Well we  may be   saving money by not going any where!
The trees are about tho pop out with leaves.
Made this last night!
The other side.
Sun is not out today, rain this afternoon so Tommy is heading out side to get as much done as he can.
When he is in the house I spend all my time looking for things for him!
Have a great weekend

Enjoy The Sun

Hi friends!
Those two will make great  sides of the mug rug with Christmas fabric on the other side.
The other side!
Where I am sitting right now!
Got my grands pictures on the wall.
View from the sewing room door! My sewing room is so messed up that I was ashamed to show that.
Got to work on it some more.
I worked on it yesterday but just got it cleaned off around my machine and cutting area.
I hate to bag up things because then I can't have them.
Hope to get out in this sun shine we have today, weak but it's out there.

A Little At A Time

Hi friends!
Though I would start on Christmas sewing.
So depressing to watch the news!
Need to top stitch all around it and it will go into the box!
My stack of doubles is growing. Need to sew more than 15 minutes!

Found Treasure

Hi friends!
I was digging around in my scrap totes and found this. A baggies with twos sewed together, five inch squares.
Would make a great little baby  girl's quilt.
I tough maybe all of them were sewed together but !
Five rows of them!
Dig up some more pink scraps.
Started cutting some more

Lots to Work On

Hi friends!
Very little was sewed over the weekend.
Abby and Ryan came over and went for us to pick up what we needed at the grocery store.
So we are all snug here.
Started sewing these together. But that was as far as I got!
Laid this out to make a rug mug out of it.
Don't really like this for backing for a baby quilt.
Maybe some sewing will get done today.
They still don't have our water fixed!
Stay safe friends

This and That

Hi friends!
Only found four blocks to use and need more than that.
See what it is now?
A small pot holder!
I looked for some backing for my twins baby quilts.
Wanted some with blue and not girly.
May have to use this if there is enough for both.
They are saying old people are dying from the virus but the Dr. in China that found it died from it and he was 40. And another place a 50 year old died.. So every body stay safe.
Stay at home and sew.

Christmas Quilt

Hi friends!
Took the border off that I added, it was just to busy.
So now I think I will makes some more blocks to make this bigger.
A row down the side and maybe a row across.
I have the middle of the blocks left over so I will see how many has red in them already.
Then it should be big enough to hang down on each side.

Hi friends!
Woke up yesterday seeing this in my minds eye!
Not finished but I am at least working on it.
Not finished with it yet!
Cut these the other day.
Just wanted some mindless sewing!
We are trying to stay close to home since it's getting so much of that virus every where. and the world health org. has named it a pandemic
It may get lots worse before it gets better.
Stay Safe my friends
