A Fun Day....

Our youngest granddaughter spent the afternoon with us while her mom was working.

She is home schooled and I made the attempt to help her with the Math.  Have y'all seen the new math?  It uses a base of 10 for adding and subtracting..!!  How many ways can 50 - 40 = 10 be explained !!! I told DD that I hope I didn't confuse her with the "old"  Math.

Itty was helping with the final sewing on the t-shirt quilt.  He tries to see and help with everything and he always makes me smile.  He truly is my constant companion.
Hope all is well with y'all and God bless ....

On the design wall .....

This is the latest project on the design wall...

This is the first quilt I've ever made for the "public".   A friend of my DD saw her T-shirt quilt and asked if I would do one for her to give as a gift for her friend.  This is how DD's quilt looks now:

It has been "loved" and used, with the backing replaced twice.  But that's what they're made for, right!
It makes me happy to know that she has enjoyed it.
Due to some hospitalization, her new quilt didn't get made before Christmas, so ........
If you read my blog, do you have any suggestions on the fees you would charge for a quilt.
Thanks for your ideas.
Have a blessed night and hugs to everyone.

A Gift Regifted..

Several years ago, my Aunt gave a fabric pack to my Mom.  As I was cleaning Mom's stash, I found the pack and decided it would be nice to re-gift the fabric.  In September I visited my aunt and
 presented the fabric as a table runner.  She was pleased and surprised and didn't remember giving Mom the packet. 
The colors look odd in the pictures, but they are more Fall-like and were appropriate on her kitchen table.  The pattern was a disappearing 9 patch -- which is one of my favorites because the corners match but don't have to be extra perfect.
(Some of the news and pictures are this past year but my family reads the blog, and this is a good way to share.  I appreciate you reading my blog, so please bear with me.)
Hoping everyone has a blessed evening.

Another year passes..........

This year has been so busy; family, friends and health issues. 

 My creative GD learned to make pot holders, she enjoys crafts and sewing.

Itty is always looking for his "mom".  The puppies won't allow him into their domain and if  I'm in their  room he climbs up on the edge of the door, hanging there until I return to the other room so he can follow me... sometimes he acts more like a dog instead of a cat.

 I went to some estate sales and found new treasures --  lol,  -  new treasures that I really didn't need. 
The potato chips and can were  made by Anheuser Busch ...
My children will gladly tell you that I don't need any more dust collectors.  I jokingly tell them that they will have an inheritance, they just have to sell it a piece at a time on eBay !
This post was started a few days ago, there is a lot more to talk about but for now, this will be the end.
Thanks for stopping by, please leave a comment.
Hoping  everyone has a blessed evening.....
