Making Pot Holders

 Hi friends!

My sis-in-law wanted some new potholders!

Made these two yesterday!

Been working on this all month.

Should be finished with it before Thursday and can start another in the new month.

Plan on making a few more pot holders today.

Think I will try a round one !  Never made one of those before.

Have fun sewing!

Stay safe

Internet Out

 Hi friends!

I have been cutting up scraps from my stash. Trying to tame them.

I did not like how one block crinkled, sorry interfacing, so I took it out to replace it.

I am hoping the washing I am going to give this after I finish will take care of the rest, but that one block bothered me!

We have not had any internet since Monday afternoon until they finally got it back on. They called me to tell me it was on but I didn't have any and it took all day yesterday just to get that fixed.

I called and called all day long. Finally it came back on.

Stay safe

A Plantation Here in The South

 We have seen logging trucks coming by here for weeks, one day we followed one going back and figure out that they were cutting the old McQuarter or Stubb's place. The only place around here that was a plantation with slaves many years ago. There was some depute with relatives that they didn't even know they had so they are cutting  to pay them off. It' over two hundred acres. Don't know if they cut enough to buy them off are not but they have quit cutting !

So yesterday we with Kim and Richard drove over their to see what was left!


I think their land goes to the foot of the mountain!
We saw lots of their place that wasn't cut but it looks like Ga. Power cut it and replanted it so I guess it sold to cut a few years ago.

It's sad to see these cut feilds.

Beautiful Sunrise

 This morning's sunrise!

All I got done to the quilt over the weekend!

But at least it's ready to go. Had to go to town before I could sew! And of course blog first to! So it should be on the couch to hand sew the binding down later today.

We are still staying pretty much at home. Sister in law is getting her strength back slowly.  My sis's birthday is wed. but she will be gone then so we usually have supper between her and Margaret's birthday and hers is 11th of next month.

Stay safe

Need to make two big bowl cozies to .  Got all the rest done .

Its cloudy here today and they are saying MAYBE snow here tomorrow.  Starting tonight sometime.

In the South it's a big MAYBE.

Stay safe and have a great weekend

Finished Printing

Hi friends!

Got the quilting done! Now I am looking for some binding.

They are saying we will get snow Sat.  I hope it's just flurry's because we are suppose to have our first quilt meeting of the year that day!

Haven't seen our girls since our last meeting.

Lots of them can't drive after dark so we skip them till the time changes.

If so I will post pictures on Monday.

Finished this one but it's just small area's, snowman and vest are painted on.

Our Weekend

 Hi friends!

Bradford pears!

Storms after while!

Sat. I added strips on the bottom and top, plus backing fabric and then added battening and pinned it but stopped there.

Start back this afternoon by quilting and then it will be ready for binding if I don't decide to add a little to each side. May not have enough fabric for that!

Stay safe friends! We still had 35 cases of Covid  19 in the last two weeks.

Worrying Two Days

Hi friends!

Have turned off the t.v.!    It was depressing me and hubby!!!    I have got zero sewing done the last two days.
 Made's you want to drop a bomb right on top of Putin's head!

Hubby got some liquid concrete to fill in a crack in the back porch, hoping that stops water from getting under the house. If not It will cost a lot of money to fix it.

It is ruining our floors!

He is going to fill that hole with cement. Then we will see if it works next week when it rains.

It is always something when you live in a house that was here during the Civil war!

Hubby's great greats heard the cannons in Chattanooga Tenn.

Now to let it dry before it rains!

Maybe a finish next week

 Hi friends! 

Been lazy the last couple of days! Took me till last night to add the almost that last row!

I did get it sewed to the back but not back down to the front.

Got to come up with a non-sissy binding and I want to add a strip on the top and bottom.

Got it pinned and ready to sew down maybe today.

Did any of you'll get one of these?

We ordered these just to have in case we needed them.

But they say these instant one aren't much good!
