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.


  1. Connie ~ Thanks for your sweet comments on the BOM blog. I am happy to find your blog and will check back often.
    I love it when my grandkids come over and I also stop what I am doing and just love being with them.
    Your dinner sounds delicious!

  2. Hi Connie
    I love your table runner! Thanks for visiting me.Bassets are the best dog.. I think. I am also trying to get better at Freehand Quilting.Practice, Practice,Practice I guess.

  3. You're right, Connie. Not enough time in the day to get all that we'd like to do... Gets worse as we get older, or it is for me! Good for you for working at free motion quilting. My daughter is getting very good at it, but I tend to stick to easier, basic stuff. Mary

  4. I love both your quilts Connie. I just don't know how you have the time to do any quilting though?
