Forth Row

Hi friends!

 working on getting it ready to add the next row!, had to add to the row to make it the right size and then sew on the joining strips.


After sewing down the strips you pin the next row and sew it on to the other three.

Three more strips to go!

Third Row Added

Hi friends!


Pinned all the way across.

Started looking like a quilt!

But there are three more rows to get just the right size before adding and that name strip to get together.

Made a few little things for one of her older sons.

The red oven gloves came with some towel's I used earlier already made but I don't need them, have several in my kitchen. So they went into the stack!

My sis-in-law that is just getting over covid 19, wants some more because she says my potholders are better then the ones you buy. I put instra -bright in mine to shield your hands from the heat and some battening on both sides.

I know what works for me!

Stay safe

Little Things

Hi friends!

Making double pot holders .

That chicken fabric is a Walmart fabric. But it just spoke to me.

This will be just a square pot holder.

I did get some fabric cut for the back of that strip with his name.

Hopefully we will stay at home today and I can get more done.

We went every where yesterday trying to find foam cups for Hubby to drink his coffee in but couldn't find any in our stores.

I don't use them , just a regular cup but he re-uses them to spit in.

May be lots more things we want be able to fine in the coming days!

Did you see our truckers are driving all the way from Calif. to D.C. to try to change all the mandates?

In my 80 years I have never heard of a mandate before!

Stay safe friends

Things Around Here

Hi friends!

Making some little things!


Isn't this great fabric for a kitchen?

Working on the t-shirt quilt but for the other sewing I need to get cotton battening , nothing else works for use in the kitchen.

Need it for the black strip near the top of the quilt to.

Hubby loves poly in a quilt but I had reather use cotton. But it does make them lighter and it seems to be just as warm.

T-shirt quilts are heavy enough as it is.

Stay safe friends

Random Things

Hi friends!

Getting there!  Just about enough to finish the quilt , unless after I sew the rows together I think it's to short.

Happy valentines day.

My Hubby gets the sweetest cards.

Plus hot Colocate in a big soup cup
Very seldom do we have buttercups blooming on valentines day.  But Hubby picked them for me

I have made a lot of head way on this quilt.
 Just about ready to start adding the rows together.

This was where I was Friday.
Last nights sunset!

T-shirts and Diamond Paintings

 Hi friends!

You can see I need another row!

So I worked on that yesterday.

I have one shirt that is really worn, with holes just wondering if that was a favorite?

May have to use it just in case!

See my cute adiction to my purse? I put all my new checks in side of it because I haven't used up all of the ones I have with the old banks name.

They sold again!

Julierose look what my daughter got me.

I has a sewing machine on it!!!!!!  Can't wait to start on it.
I finished this one!

And started this one

It's smaller!

Stay safe friends

T-shirt quilt

Hi Friends!

Made some in-roads yesterday, but I think it will need another row made up. One more row of blocks than I have put together.


Now I have three rows sewed together.

Trying today for a forth row, may have enough to make a fifth row but we will see and find out how many more blocks I need to make. I think I will need at least 6 rows  to get it long enough. Kelly's boys are tall!

See how many I can get together today!

Ran into a girl yesterday  that had had Covid and she was still dragging . Didn't get close , just said hello and hoped she got better fast.

Stay safe! It's terrible! My sis-in-law is still sick with it.
