Tree Up

 Hi friends!

Hubby took the Air conditioner out so I could put that chair that sits in the corner further down and put the tree up. 

I have been fluffing and putting on ornaments   all week!

Still haven't decided what to put on top!  Star? Santa? Angel?

Look and see after while what shape my tree toppers are in.

After Thanksgiving

 Hi friends!

We just got back from voting in a run-off! Want really be through until next week.

My daughter was in the hospital for days, we spent days at the hospital and today she starts therapy. She came home on Tuesday before Thanksgiving . The stroke affected her speech. She is only 56 years old.

I have been so rattled that I forgot my camera for both our Thanksgiving's.  Abby did most of the cooking on Thursday with Kim's help. They insisted I make nothing, that they did it for us! I have some great kids, all 6 of them!

Then for my family Thanksgiving Chris cooked  a Ham and my daughters girls made sides. I made sweet tea and we got together at my daughter's.

Prayers are needed

Visit To The Nursing Home

Hi friends!

Today the Q-Bees visited out local nursing home to carry some wheel-chair quilts for a few ladies and Vets!
They put up the quilts not for veterans to give as Christmas Gifts for people that doesn't have family to get for them.

You are not allowed to put these sweet people on face book so this is a picture of some of our qroup's members.

In this shot we were near the lunchroom, waiting for a very nice man to get a list of vets for us so we could go to each veteran and present him with his quilt.

This is Vickies wheel chair quilt that she made and we presented it today.

This is Charlotte's.

This is Susan's in a earlier picture. 

Hugs and Love

Lots of things

Hi friends!

This is under our crepe myrtle , the limbs peels off.

This tree is close to one hundred old. The younger ones don't do this.

Our Maple's!

They are looking pretty.

I couldn't get to my pattern so I used Tommy's greasy apron to cut him out another one.

The fabric at the top of the picture is what is under neath.  Think I can get the strings for tying and over his heard from what's left. But that was as far as I got before we had company.

Got to do more sewing , or get back to sewing 15 minutes a day because My daughter-in-love sent me a message , she wants a quilt by next fall and I have some baby things to make by April. Got next great-grand. Things  Plus finish that last one for the  Nursing home.

Covid and Flowers

Hi friends!

My sis called yesterday afternoon after my blog post to tell me she went to the Dr. and tested positive for Covid .  After me spending all day with her Tuesday.

So I told my daughter and she said they were treating covid like the flu now with no period of days to stay at home. But I think we will stay at home until we know if we have it. That's  probably the policy for where she works!

I have got to find some more of those flowers next year, they have done so well! They go from yellow , to red and then to orange.  You can see all three colors on this big plant! That's another good thing , it spreads!

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.

Hot and Quilting

 Hi friends! 

Yesterday we went and bought groceries, hubby bought two of these Cheetos! Only he got the wrong kind, He has a bad stomach and I though I could eat them but they burned to much.

So hubby took one bag out side and dumped them.

This morning he noticed the crows where not hollowing , he figures they were what eat them and they are probably  sitting near a creek !!!!

Maybe they want come back!!!

Next month we will carry our wheel-chair quilts to the nursing home, This is one of mine , just need the binding sewed down.

This is my second one!
I need to put together one more top to have three , which is what I told our group I would make.
 I have made 10 that are not for veterans and going to make one more to make three for the Veterans that are in that nursing home.

Vickie has already talked to the lady that works there. And she said 11 veterans! But other's in our group are making them to.

Maybe next month I can show us handing them out but we may not , Covid is still so strong that a nursing home in the next town  is closed from Covid 19

Prays and hugs
