I really like her pattern. I think after i get this one quilted I would like to start a egg money quilt by Eleanor burns, I have got all the 1930 reproduction fabric to do it with. There is so much I want to do but the days aren't long enough. I have been in my sewing room the most of the day, I also cut out a pageant Valentine casual wear to put together,so I feel like i have done quiet a bit today.Hope every one has had a good day, When i can get something done it is a Good day for me. I got a gift for Christmas it is a little gold sprool of thread and a little needle stuck in it with a small chain and a tiny button on it, My sister in law said she found it at a flea market and thought of me. it is in a card that said In everything you do----- you love come true. It look like is is old, I haven't seem this before, I am proud of it! I feel like i have got alot done today hope you have to.------------ Romans 12; verse 11 Work hard and do not be lazy. Serve the Lord with a heart full of devotion.

in my sewing room-------------- doing decoration

I have not been in my sewing room today. I put on insulated overrall and gloves , a hood jacket and when outside to do the christmas decoration, it has took me all day and it is done, i'm so glad. It was a very pretty day and I enjoy being out. It was cold but with the clothes i had kept me very warm. I thought about when I was young how we would bundle up and meet a bunch of friends to go sleigh riding, It was so much fun ,we would be out all day come home for dinner and the hot food was good. Its funny how you are doing something and you go back in time and think about what you use to do. Now if it snow I weary about the family having to be out in it going to work. My dad would say he hope it didn't snow and I didn't under stand why he would say that, but now I know. Well so much for going back in time. My dad birthday birthday is Dec. 6th He died on Dec 24, I will alway miss him.-------------Psalms verse 1-2 I will always thank the Lord ; I will never stop praising him. 2 I will praise him for what he has done; may all who are oppressed listen and be glad.

in my sewing room------- cleaning carpet

I was in my sewing some today ,i had to finish hairbows to go with the grinch outfit. I had my carpet clean today and they look so much better, I will clean everything and put my stuff back in place tomorrow. I 'm getting ready to do the big tree it is 9ft tall, this one is in the family room.I love snowmens and I made a big snowmen for the top of the tree and then put all the stuff that we have collected over the years on this tree. I remember when we would go out to find the perfect tree and get back to the house and trim it up and decide it wasn't the perfect tree. those day was fun, it would take us all day looking, we would go from one place to another. Last year we took the old truck and loaded the grandkids so they could look for them a tree for their room, they really enjoy doing that and we had fun doing this with them, we even let them try to cut their own tree. It is so easy now all you do is open the box and surprize there is the tree, I will say the clean up is a lot easier. I guess this is all for now. Have a restful night!----------------------------------2 Thessalonians 3: verse 16 May the Lord himself, who is our source of peace, give you piece at all time and in every way. the Lord be with you all.
