Making Wheelchair Quilts

Hi friends! 

Didn't show the eclipse very well . But I tried!

Worked on this Saturday afternoon!  All it needed was binding and I had picked that out..

Didn't take long to sew it together and press it. Then sew it down on both sides.

Some little old lady that loves cats would love this so I cut it out.

I picked out a backing but haven't got to the sewing machine yet.

Stay safe friends

A littl sewing

 Hi friends!

Another boat block!

Our quilt club "Q-Bees" is making some more quilts for wheelchairs for the nursing home.

Yesterday I noticed this fabric.

Sis had bought it last year but didn't get  a binding on it,. It came from Walmart so we went to get some pills and I looked but they don't carry it now!

So I will put a binding on it and make a few from scratch.

We go with a list to Walmart and any thing they don't have we buy some where else. If we can find it! Mostly I will look on line!

Walmart is the only place close that carries fabric!

Are any other bloggers have trouble leaving comments? a lot of blog's that I have been commenting for years on want let me leave one now!

Two GG'sons Quilts

Hi friends! 

Cooked the pot pie yesterday for supper.

Pretty Good!

Of course Hubby said it wasn't as good as my home made ones.


Made another block for the boys quilt.

At this rate they may be graduating school before I finish!

Surrendered them with green fabric. This might be big enough with a border for one of the quilts.

We will see , I may still add another boat block!

My daughter got me this , It should hold lots of diamonds!  They are small but deep!

Stay safe friends

Mother's Day

 Hi friends!

Son, Chris, on the left, then my daughter  Karen, They lean the same,  and right is Amy ,Chris's wife.

 We were waiting for a table at Red Lobster. Didn't have to wait but for 30 minutes.

They let me pick where I wanted to go and I hadn't been their in 2 years. But when it's rushed like it was yesterday it's just not as good.

Chris and Amy got me a big Chicken pot pie and those flowers to.

My daughter got me this

The small box is a holders for Diamonds.

Karen was the one that got me 6 diamond paintings for Christmas.

Why they bought me things when they we taking me out to eat, I don't know!

But I really enjoyed spending time with my babies!

Hi friends,

Didn't rain much but the wind blew a bunch of limbs off the trees' so I went out and helped hubby rake them up but I think it's going to rain some more and it will be to do over.

Going to make some kind of block and them put 12 inch cuts of this between them. inspiration had not hit so I will just do it that way.

Some times ideas just don't come!

Maybe i will at least get something done to them!
 Getting older and slower!!!!

Have a great Mother'd Day

Flowers Blooming

Hi friends! 

So far the deer hasn't taken notice of my rose bush that my mother bought for me years ago.  It's got buds on it even through it sits in a ant bed.
 Every where I have made flower beds the ants have taken it over!

All the other roses I have planted have been eaten to the ground! Kim and Richard got me a multi-colored  rose one year and we put a cage around it but they eat it to . Don't look like they would want those prickly  things in their mouth.

The yellow flags are now starting to bloom. It amazes me that purple blooms first then yellow and finally white!

As soon as they finish Hubby mows them down.

We are staying at home today so maybe I can work on those to quilts! We went to vote yesterday, early voting here in Ga.

Get out and vote , It's the only input we have in this crazy goverment.

We have been using the big one near our bed room  at night for a week! But when you have a hubby with C.O.P.D. As soon as the temps. get above 85 with humidity it has to go on!

A {not to good] tree.

Made it into a bowl cozy!

Red on the other side.

My kitchen is painted blue so I used this fabric for my new curtains.

Trying to use up as much of my stash as I can.

Weekend Sewing

Hi friends!

This is the fabric that goes with this!


My sis opened a quilt kit and then didn't work on it so she rounded up all the pieces and gave them to me.

Along with all the other quilt kits that she had bought thru the years!

So this will make a great quilt for little Brad, the other one will be for Marvick , his older brother.

Brad will be a year old in Oct. I think!! Making them both a twin quilt.

Making a Tree!

Have a safe day

One Quilt

Hi friends!

Yesterday I saw this pale blue fabric with boats and loved it , today not so much!

Part of this is blurry but you can see the blue fabric better!  White boats on a blue sea!

The color works with the panel but it just looks washed out next to the other. Plus I just have maybe a half yard of that fabric!

I think I will think about it and work on the other one for a few days until I know if I like that.

The flash made it white out!

My latest diamond painting!  Not completely finished yet.

Have a great weekend

One Thing Right After Another

 Hi friends!

 For some reason our country doesn't have Smucker's Blackberry jelly! In any store! So we have had to resort to ordering it!

 However our mail system just slams things around and this time from 12 bottles, we could only salvage 9 bottles!  Last time we only lost one!

They think money grows on trees! Two busted all to pieces and one the lid had popped off and it was probably full of glass.

Today we drove miles for John Deer parts!

Our yearly trip just to keep that thing running! Thank the Good Lord Hubby is handy!

Last night the internet went off and it came back on at 5 o'clock , just a few minutes ago!

Nothing works right !

But we enjoy every minute of our life together!
