in my sewing room-------- A Birthday party!

A Sunday, A birthday party for my baby girl who turn 38 on the 25Th, had all the family here except one a son in law, he had to work. MY oldest daughter and her family just left, We all had a wonderful time together. The grand kids love to be together to play, I know when I was young , (way back when) any ways we would like for our cousins to come and play or stay the night with us, if there was no school they could stay a week with us, we live in the country and my cousins live in the city. 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.

in my sewing room---------Not so Charmed!

Well another day is about over , I didn't get any sewing done on my charmed quilt, my plans was to make so many 9 patch square ,but my day ran out on me. I did get some hand sewing done on my sampler quilt and the rest of the scallops iron on the border, and now they are ready to be sewn, I do this when I'm watching TV. 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). I need to go to the fabric shop to get a few things, maybe I can go on the week in, this will be a treat for me to go there. This is all for now,this was my Thursday how about your day, good I hope. Until later..................John 3; verse 31 He who comes from above is greater than all. He who is from the earth belongs to the earth and speak earthly matters, but he who comes from heaven is above all.

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

in my sewing room--------------- freehand quilting

I had three of my grandchildren today so I didn't do much sewing, they wanted me to play a board game with them and that take awhile. 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. He who is from the earth belongs to the earth and speaks about earthly matters, but he who comes from heaven is above all.
