in my sewing room-----------------casual wear

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.


  1. Good morning, Connie.I love your new picture.I'm still not 'on the top shelf' yet.I can't seem to get rid of all the lingering ailments from this sinus and chest thing I've had since Christmas.I still have a splitting headache and my heart seems to keep racing with the least little exertion.Mom stays on me to go to the doctor, but I don't have a lot of faith in doctors anymore.I have been taking a natural antibiotic(echinasea) on my own, for a few days.It surely has to be over soon, although some folks say it gets better then worse, several times before you get completely over it.I hope to get back to blogging soon. Stay well! Happy Blogging!

  2. I love your new picture! I have a few quilts my great grandmother did in 70's fabrics. :) That sewing machine is great- I always keep a look out for sewing/quilting stuff when going to antique/junk shops. Thanks for the verse of the day :) Christine

  3. The quilts are so bright and cheerful, and the other things there are interesting too. Did you make the doll and chair? I'd like to steal that little china cup from you! *grin* I have one very similar to it, and I used to collect little cups and saucers. Yours is really pretty! ---"Love"
