One Of Those Days
Yesterday I cut me some parts and was all ready to sew when I noticed my first seam had skips every where!
I always sew on my featherweight so for a hour I adjusted this and tried a seam , adjusted something else and sewed a seam.
Finally I used this little thing on my tension wheels and it worked!
They work good on places that collect lint.
But I spend all my sewing time trying to get it to sew so didn't get a block made!
So today should get a few stars made.
I don't buy any more just transplant !

This is the middle block that I was making some blocks big for.
Bought a bunch of these when we went to Ala to a quilt shop just for making Vets quilts!
It will go some where in this quilt !
Don't know where yet!
They smell so good. Bought two but the other one died. Bought two of another to but one of them died. After that I quit buying!
That's what happens when you work on something and put it up for later.

That stump where we had that big tree cut in our front yard now has a tomato plant growing on it.
Don't have any idea how it got there!
We planted 14 tomato plants in our garden. That makes 15!
Took me a few minutes to remember that!
Made one more mask but I am not finished. Trying to make one that works and is comfortable.
So back to the drawing board!

Still making stars!
Got a few more done but don't know where I stuck them! Plan to look for and hang those to just to see what I do have made.
I found some top soil and transplanted my flower I bought.
Was pouring down rain earlier this morning, don't guess we will ever get the ground dry enough to plant some more.
Rain in the forecast for the next week.

Got to craving chocolate and made a pound cake .
Really was good and moist.
Doesn't look like that now!!!
Went to the Dr. Tuesday and they called this morning with me a apt. to get this place scanned or x-rays one but not until June 1th. A week from this coming Monday.
We are staying at home until this is over with , just going where we have to.
Couldn't find this picture the other day.
Red high acid may be hurting his stomach so the yellows for him are his and I get the rest!
Haven't got another thing planted because of the rain.
Praying for some dry weather !
Have a good one

My newest fabric for my veterans quilt.
Working a little every day gets a good bit done in a months time.
They came yesterday! Should last him a while , then maybe Ingles will have it in stock again.
I went into Ingles to get milk Sunday after Church.
That was all we were out of!
Wore my mask and wore it to Dr. today.
They weren't wearing one!
But I am a little older than they are. and Tommy is high risk. Don't want to bring it home to him.
Have and good one and stay safe

Three boy Quilts
Finished up these and took them to Church yesterday.
We had car church!
Later made six burp cloth's and put binding on the blanket . After I worked on my only machine that does fancy stitches.
My neck is better but hasn't gone away so I made a apt. for tomorrow to see the Dr.
After two rounds of antibiotics!
We will see if he wants me to do another round!
The 3 inch square quilt is for Their sister or sister in law.

Sis came over Monday with another trash-bag full of fabric.
So I tossed it into the washer and started un-tangling yesterday.
Still have a pretty good pile in there I will work on today.
All nicely ironed and added to my sewing room.

Don't you hate to quilt something and flip it over to a small fold?
So I spent a lot of yesterday ripping out that side of the quilting.
Going to spray starch it good and iron the heck out of it and do a better job....I hope.
Tommy started plowing yesterday!
Planning on a small garden.
Last year he didn't feel up to it but the lung Dr. got him on some meds. that makes him feel better.
We hope to put out tomato's , two rows of orka and two rows of corn. Some of our grands love corn.
Hoping to finish that last baby quilt and hoping to get that order of flannel soon so I can make some more things for coming babies.
Got a email from them last week saying it would be a little short on one of the flannels. So soon I hope.
I had used up all my old flannel on Maverick before he was born. He is nearly three months old now.
Have a good one but stay safe.
Suppose to warm up tomorrow, Can't wait!

Mother's Day Weekend
Finally got my order.
My quilting glove's were getting hole's in the fingers so I ordered two pair and a little more fabric for our veterans quilt.
I think this fabric :
Made one more mask the way I though would feel better on my face
My daughter and youngest grand daughter came over yesterday and brought me these.
They are being careful trying to protect us!
I will be so happy when this goes away!
Hope you all had a great Mother's Day
