A memories of my mom..

Today .......... 35 years ago i lost my mother to cancer, she was 54 years old, there is a lot of memory of her, she has done so much for us kids, there was 4 of us 2 brother and 1 sister. We live on a small farm and sometimes the winter was really hard, because dad didn't have work in the winter month, but with all the canning and other thing we had on the farm we did get by. Mom always made sure everything was clean and neat and made time for us, there was so many special thing she has done for us and i could go on and on, ,just one more thing, mom didn't do very much sewing, but i remember the little thing she has made, she would make doll cloths for my dolls and show me how to sew and make clothe for my doll, she has make us girls little jumper and skirts to wear,also made me a real pretty apron for me to have to wear in a Thanksgiving dinner at our church, she didn't have a sewing machine everything she done was by her hand and with four kids there was a lot of patch work to be done too. Mom is miss every day and we all love you. Merry Christmas to you in Heavens.

Just had my Mother in law for dinner the Girls and grand did't come up to day. I work on the family tree and the mantle for Christmas ,now they are done, and got my Christmas cards ready to mail, my Sunday was a good Sunday! I have three of my grands today, no school for them, they have been playing in the snow , it is almost to cold for them to be out. Watching them bring back memories of my snow days when we didn't have school, in the little town i lives in ,all of my friends would get together and go sleighing, it was a all day thing we had so much fun, there was this big hill we would go to, we had a old car hood and a big bunch would get on it and go down and it was a way down the hill, now the hill has got a new house there and it is behind the quilt shop that i work at for a while. Those was the days and time goes so fast!........
I'm in my sewing room and I'm going to put a binding on my Christmas quilt, and guess that will be all i will get done today.......

in my sewing room------ Every have these monent!

Well for some reason i have been making myself to decorate for the holiday, I do a little every day but i just can't get in the mood and i am doing less this year. I had trouble with my prelit tree some of the light won't work, i had to work with them and gave up and put light on it extra, this is the last year for this tree, or I think it is. Don't have my shopping done not any gift wrap, GOSH ! just going in slow mode. Does any one how have these day? Maybe next time i will post i can say its done! Enough!..........
As for as my sewing still working on curtain for my daughter ,hope to finish them today, if anyone need allot of blue ruffles that came off of curtains just let me know. I all so made a gift my brother and his wife for their anniversary, i took burlap fabric and made a bag and stiffened it with glue and water them stuff it to dry, i made candy canes out of fabric , batting and a coat hanger cut in to candy cane, brush glue on them and sprinkle mica flakes to give them a that sparkle, make little primitive snowmen and put that in the bag with the candy cane and a battery operate candle and greenery and it sure did turn out really country lookin, they sure did like it.
A memory, We use to go out and cut a cedar tree for Christmas ,it would take us most of the day to find that perfect tree and the smell of the cedar in the room was good to smell. I would also cut a smaller tree for my girls room and they would decorate it them self. We live in a mobile home at that time, i remember when we set it up it was the biggest one at that time now they make them like big home, we live in it for about 7 years and them we built us a house in 1973 and it is still our home, a happy home! well any way i just had the one tree and that was all i would decorate .I kept telling myself I'm getting older and I think it is time to cut back. I guess time will tell..............
Out of the past and back to now, today i have little fellow, he will be spending the night with us, his mother and father has got a Christmas program going on tonight for his sister, i would like to go but it is better for me to kept him here he kind get tired it if is very long program. He love to spend the night, he like to spend time with his pappy..............
I guess this is all for now i better get my work done because it won't get done with me setting here. Sorry no pictures but someday there will be pictures of what i do....
God is good, all the time......

in my sewing room------ FALL is in the air!

No pictures, just a few thought come to my mind........
I had the two little grands today, little fellow and cupcake........
I got some sewing done on my spider web quilt , I have been trying to do a block every day and sometime 2 blocks and it will take me 7 week to get it done, I do have some hand quilting to do on my sampler quilt, 4 more blocks and the border, and them there will be the binding to do, WHEW them it will be done..............
While my little fellow took his afternoon nap, and he does take a long nap, me and cupcake when outside so she could play and i set on the porch to watch her, the wind was blowing and it was so nice to be out and watching her made me think how time goes so fast, me and my sister would play on our farm, but we also had work to do, but this time of the year we was getting ready for school, my mom would take us to get our hair all curly and them we would get a new pair of shoes and a new dress or two and with what we had we would be ready for school. My mom was also busy at home with her canning and working on the farm to get everything done for the winter months, my Dad was Carpenter he could built anything, sometime he would take me with him to work to play with other children. When years when on and it seen like the work was hard to come by especially in the winter month thing would be hard for us but we had love and food that mom had can and milk and eggs that we have on the farm, we made it and we was a happy family, I had 1 sister and 2 brothers. one brother lives by me and my other brother lives in the city, and my sister lives in Florida, and i really do miss her don't see her very much but we talk on the phone 2 or 3 time a week.........
Well this is all for now, going to the county fair tomorrow to watch my grandson pull in the truck pull and also going to check to see if I got any blue ribbon on my stuff that i put in the fair, will let you all know a maybe some pictures. Have a great holiday week in! God is good.

in my sewing room---HAPPY EASTER!

My Thursday was busy, had the little fellow , done some house cleaning and when shopping to get some stuff i needed for my Easter dinner, no sewing today.
Friday I had little fellow and cupcake, also had one of the twin, Mophead, she had a ear infection and fever so she couldn't go to school. I made two cakes and started my cooking because I was having my Easter dinner tonight, the reason was because my older daughter and her family was leaving for Florida for vacation, and I wanted everyone to be together for Easter. Around 6o'clock we had our meal, and the big egg hunt for the grands, they couldn't wait for us to get the meal over ,so they could find the eggs, My niece and sister-in-law help hide the eggs and the mothers, and great grandmother kept the kids in the house, when all the eggs was hide, the grands line up at the door with the younger ones first ,and out they when, and the fun be gain. Well it is over, and the family's are leaving, I told them that Florida is a long way,and that was to far for me. time for me to clean up the kitchen , and I had 2 of my grands to stay all night.
Saturday, when to take care of my daughter animals while they are gone, took one of my granddaughter home, and my grandson is staying again tonight, he help us with yard work today. my neighbor gave me some blackberry plants, he dug the holes for me, he is ten yrs old and is a big help, he also mow some of our yard while pappy mow the rest.
A Easter memories, My sister and me walk to school, I was in the first grade and my sister was in the third grade, we had a uncle who was in the eighth grade and he would walk us to and from school, Easter weekin was coming up, and he had a big bag of jelly bean candy, he would share them with us on the way home, I ask him where did he got his jelly beans candy and he told us, he got them from the Easter bunny and that he live in the cemetery and I believe him, Now my uncle is in construction work and he does our work for us when we need something done. One more little story, last Sunday at our church, during children time, the preacher ask a question, he ask what was Easter and who was coming back, one of my granddaughter said, it was Easter and the Easter bunny was coming back alive, everyone got tickle, so let remember what Easter is all about, and every one have a GREAT EASTER DAY! John 20-22; verse 21 Jesus said to them again,Peace be with you. As the father sent me,so I send you. 22 Then he breathed on them and said,"received the Holy Spirit. AMEN.

in my sewing room-------- rag balls

My Monday started off by making primitive rag balls made out of old quilts and also made t-towel with the old quilt hanger on them and got them ready to coffee stain them. I have made a old time stump doll to get finish and old quilt candle mat. I'm doing these for a primitive shop. My little fellow when down for his nap, so I put a binding on my quilt that I got back from the quilter, it turn out real pretty.
My Tuesday, more rag balls and I had a old vintage quilt top that hasn't been quilt so I got it layer with the muslin lining and batting to hand quilt, this morning. This afternoon I got my sampler quilt ready to hand quilt also, so it will be a while before it is quilted, hand quilting goes slow for me. I put the sampler quilt in my big frame and the old vintage quilt in the lap frame , I can work on this when I watching TV.
Memories, one of my blogger friend was making ice cream with her granddaughter, and it made me think of how we would go to my grandmother and she would have home made ice cream made the old fashion way , it was so good, and she would always have a spice cake made, we would go and see her on the week in, so she would be ready for us. Grandma and my Aunt Betty would come by on Sunday morning and get me and my sister and walk to church with us, those are thing you just don't for get. I hope the thing I do with my Grands they will always remember them. I could say more but this is all for now, have a blessful night. Psalms 52; v- 9 I will always thank you, God, for what you have done, in the presence of your people I will proclaim that you are good. Amen.

I could never stay away from home ,I would get so home sick, guess I was 13 year old before i stay over night with my best friend, and I made it all night. Well any way that enough of this story. I went and pick up my garden twist quilt from the quilter, it turn out so pretty, very please with it. WEllllll, for Monday don't know what I will work on, got several thing going, so will let you know later about what I can get done. Have my little granddaughter, tonight ,she is my cupcake and her pappy sugar baby. Her mom has a long day at the hospital tomorrow, so we kept her over night. I will have my little 2 year old grandson , on Monday, he is my little busy busy little fellow, but is so sweet, he will say granny I need to hug you, it melt you heart. This is all for now hope everyone will have a great week, The Lord will bless everyone! Verse for today is PSALMS 40 ; verse 5 You have done many things for us , O Lord our God; there is no one like you! You have made many wonderful plans for us.

I also got two 18 inch blocks done on my welcome spring quilt and it does look like spring, it is the soft color, and we had sunshine to day and that was even better. so you could say I got some of my sewing done today plus the everyday housework and taking care of my little grandson and on Friday I will have a 2 yrs old and my 3 year old, I guess it will be a busy Friday. I when tonight to do my weekly shopping so this is done and put away,( needed to get snacks for the grandkids).

in my sewing room--------- Tired today!

On Monday I just couldn't get my thought together to do what I wanted to work on, I got my container out that has my underground railroad book and fabric, so I thought I would cut it out, but I didn't have enough of my natural fabric, that i want it to use, so i put it back up, pull out another container, so I started cutting out this pattern, call welcome spring, and finish cutting it today, but last night I was looking at some books and one of them was a book call charms quilts so I had some pieces already cut and I got them out to work on too, this is something I don't like to do , because I just do one project at a time but I thought I could work on both of them when I have the time. I am still working on my sampler it is all hand work, I got 4 scallops done and got 10 more to go and the corner and flower and leaves. today I had my grand kids they was out of school because of the snow, so I have been busy with them, My granddaughter birthday was today, we will have her birthday party on Saturday, she was 8 today, the time is going so fast and as we get older it seem like it even goes faster. I can remember when I was 8, were have time gone ,but no complain, been bless with a wonderful husband and 2 daughters and 7 grandchildren, I thank My God every day for our blessing! I sure hope our snow is over, but the weather man said more could be coming in, Won't be to much longer until spring will be here, and I will be glad. I hope everyone had a good day. I love this , If God brings you to it....He will bring you through it ! This is so true. Have FAITH Until later ! Connie

I did try freehand quilting on the Valentine table runner, I have got the all over meandering Down pat ,but it is doing the design freehand style, i guess I have just got to kept working with it, this is something that I really want to do, I just love what you can do on freehand style. I made a pot of veg soup and corn bread for our supper tonight so I thought I would make my husband a cocoa cream pie. when we was little my mom would make the best cream pies and we got to take a spoon and clean out the pan ,it was so good. MY grandaugther who is 7 yr old done the same thing to days she had the pan almost shiny clean, and the done the meringue bowl the same way ,it was the same as her mom did also when she was little. Well this is all about that, Hope to get more done tomorrow, I need to get another pageant casual wear done, so maybe I will start this project. AH! there is so much I like to do but it is not enough time in a day. Hope everyone have a great week. Until next time, maybe I will have some pictures of my finish table runner and my sampler quilt.------John 3; verse 32 He who comes from above is greater than all.
