I really like doing applique quilts. Just a block at a time,and it is finally done and each. block can be different. Hopely my daughter will post a picture for me tonight, it just depend on how busy she will be when she get home from work.This is all for now until later, HAPPY STITCHING!

I have been to the doctor today in Louisville KY , so I didn't get any sewing done today but planning on sewing some tonight, I will have my 2 and 3 year grand kids tomorrow and it will be a busy day. My new picture in my header is the quilt that i made back in the 1970, I guess you can tell by the fabric that is in it. I don't use this quilt, I guess I like to kept it looking good, It is all done by hand and quilted by me and my mother in law. The very first quilt i made was two dutch girl twin size quilt for my daughters when they was little. My mother- in -law and my sister -n -law would come and up and help me to do all of the applique work on them , I still have them and will give them to the my daughters to have. The old sewing machine came from the flea market several year back, my daughter found it for me, she thought i would like it. The little chair in the picture is use for a pin cushion, the pattern is very old ,my mother use to make them a long time ago and I have the pattern and made this one to use. Well I could go on, but this is all i need to sew some. Until next time. HAPPY SEWING!-----------Romans 5 ; verse 1 Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.
