Sewing and Diamond painting

 Hi friends!

Making double pot holders for two of my grand daughter's.

Then I am going to start making for our next great grands, a boy that will be born this year.

We only have a few of our 22 grands that are married and having children, so we will have plenty more as the years go on.  Only 16 right now so this will be 17! Our youngest grand is graduating high school this year so they are all old enough.

My son said his girls were always trying to get his double pot holder that I made them so I am making them some.

Doing some thing else for a good friend to!

Got to get back to making log cabins again because I still need a few of those.

My sister's newest dog "Belle"

The two smaller cases I got from the Diamond painting co. but the bigger ones I got at Walmart, Today I got this one.

These are for beads but they work fine for Diamonds , some of these colors has lots of shades!
So need lots of these.
About finished with this one!

Looking forward to doing another Christmas one after this.
Have a great day

She made the top and I just finished it up for her.
Thinking about making Michael a bowl cozy out of this fabric today., He want see this because he is working. He loves going  to see the  falcons play ! He is our Lawyer grandson. As you can see it's made fabric because these scraps are getting tiny.

Still making towels to give to my babies.

 Hi friends!

Having so many problems with getting comments!  None comes to me! Not a one! I am trying to get it to working every day but no success as of yet.

 I have the binding made and pinned down so today should start to sew it down.  Maybe tonight when I stop and kind-a watch t v with my ears usually while reading a book

Does any one else do that? I really don't like t v but like the news so I have it turned on and hear it as I go. Not good for your blood pressure right now but I had rather read a good book!

Blooms are so pretty!

My Bradford pears are turning green right now, not quit as pretty as before.

These have started blooming as well. Love Spring!

Stay safe

Log Cabin Quilt

 Hi friends!

Well it had turned winter again! Just laid these blocks out to see how many I had already made.   Still need a few more , not long enough after you sew them together.

No pattern yet , but maybe next week if I get some more made. My colors are all Batik! Some of the light ones all to but just didn't find enough of the light ones to do all of them in it.

They were giving Covid shots at Walmart today and it was a crush. I had to pick-up  Meds so was right in the middle of it. Glad we got our's done with!  Even through it made me sick for about 12 hours.

Cold , windy day here today!

Have a great weekend and stay safe

Around Here

Hi friends!

My ruler came and some fabric that was in my buggy already.  I have rulers hanging all over my sewing room.

Going to cut out some more bowl cozies today.

I need to cut out the bigger ones because people seem to like those better.
 I think the smaller ones are a little to small.

Last week Hubby got out with his tractor and moved a dead tree that the wind had blowed down. You can see it shattered when it hit the ground, it was that dead! He can't wait till he can get out side.

Losing my cousin has stopped any sewing , funeral today.

Sewing and Diamond Painting

 Hi friends!

Perfect sized battening!

Sewing backing together!  Great backing for this purple quilt.

This is headed for the ironing board! 
Maybe I will get it ironed and quilted today or this week-end.
This is the diamond painting that Julia-Rose,  sent me that got me  in  to these .
I got low on them and this one is big, so I figured it would last till the others got here and figured a month but they came the next week.
Beautiful flower!
At least we can say our hobby's are low priced.
I think those four I got the other day were 5.00s apiece.
I have seen some at 2:99.
Have a great weekend

Sewing anf Books

Hi friends!

Backing for a quilt that I need to sandwich, lost it for two days but finally found it. I had put it on top of a hugh pack of paper towels.

 Taller than me!

Sis came over day before yesterday, she had been cleaning her sewing room and brought me four trash bags full of fabric, the last of witch is in the dryer right now.
I need to get back to making bowl cozies for my grands!  And to quilt that purple quilt. Got another with every thing ready to sandwich .

I have lagged behind in my sewing but read lots of books lately.

Sis took these home with her yesterday, most of these I bought at Ollie's.
 Nothing interesting in my stack of books right now so maybe I will get some sewing done.

Hi friends!

Ordered these last week and got them today!

I was down to two!
Going to have to get some more towels and pot holders!
Hubby thinks I spend so much money on my hobby's but haven't spend as much as he did for his john deer and his tractor, not by a long shot. Might catch up after another hundred years!!!!
Think I got it backwards Dawn.

Need ToDo!

Hi friends!

My sweet friend Dawn sent me this a while ago and I have been planning on making some for grands!

Got a couple of towels and pot holders the last time I went to Walmart. 

Just need to get back in the sewing mood.

Got this because it was pretty!!!!
Good enough reason, right?

Hoping now that we got our shots maybe we can go back to church!  Just have to convince Hubby that we can.
