More Quilts

Hi friends!

Charlotte's quilt for show and tell.

Got a call from Vickie last night and we are handing out the wheel chair quilts on Veterans Day, Friday 11th of November. 

Our meeting is on the 19 of November. That's a Saturday at 11 oclock.

Sis had tested positive! I was almost positive I had Covid yesterday but I didn't! I has spent all day on Tuesday in Chattanooga the day before she tested positive. and though for sure I had it.

They are saying that it's not as strong now if you do get it.

The quilt Sis made for Mia.  It's from her cheering t-shirts.

This one she made for our niece , Melanie.

As I was coming out of the Dr. office yesterday Melanie was going in With her daughter Anna.

Hubby told her, Don't hug her you mi8ght get it! She said I always hug my aunt Barbara even if she is sick! And she did!

Take Care

 Hi friends!

It has frosted!   Killed most of this plant.

Our best tree is yellow this year because of the drought! Had no rain in weeks.

Suppose to storm this afternoon so we went to town yesterday to do things, like take off garbage and buy groceries.

What use to cost 60 dollars now cost 160 dollars!

May have to quit eating!!!  If you are our age you know we don't eat much at all. about our only meal is breakfast.! And that is so we can take our pills

.Lot of people are taking advantage of early voting. Over 7 hundred thousand here in Ga.

And early voting goes until four days before our voting day, I think but to be sure I would have to look it up.

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!

Day in Chattanooga

Hi friends!

This was my books I got at Mc-Kays yesterday. We left at 10 in the morning and got back about five .

The two bags are books to but with turning in a lot of some we had read in a last year, all this cost me was 16 dollars.

Also hit their Walmart and went into Jo-Anns. Eat at Jason deli, hot sandwich and a bowl of soup. with ice cream for dessert.

In whole, a GREAT day.

Wore me out!

Sunday Verse

Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
