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.

another week have come and gone, my Friday, my little fellow was running a fever so I call his mother at work to tell him and she said to bring him to meet her and take him to the doctor, a ear infection and tonsils was swollen, so they put him on some meds. and he is doing better. little fellow when home with his mom and I came home to wait for the gran daughter to come for the week in, their parents had to work , ,it was my little cupcake, weasel, and the mop head, their nicknames. And on with the Saturday, I just done some house work and the girls enjoyed playing outside a lot today, so I guess you could say it was a good day. Sunday, Cook dinner, made my older gran daughter her favorite, fried chicken, she say, granny you make the best chicken, she turn 18 last Friday and it just don't seem possible, but any way, we all got ready for church ,so when we get back dinner will be ready. Our younger daughter and family didn't get to come up for church and dinner today, it was just the grands, and my mother in law was here for dinner. We when to my older daughter house tonight for Tay 18th birthday party and it turn out real good all of my family was there, this is her last year of high school and she is getting ready for college, oh how time goes by, she is a beautiful young lady and a lot to look forward to, may God be with her and kept her safe. I guess this is enough for today getting late, got to get some rest and be ready for little fellow on Monday. Hope everyone will have a blessful week!

in my sewing room----------LEAFY TUESDAY!

So my Monday when good, I did get the borders on my garden spring quilt and it is ready to be quilted. Today, I've done some housework but my project was making 36 leaves for my sampler quilt border, and 18 flowers and they are on the border now and ready to be applique, I guess if every thing go good on Wednesday, I will be appliqueing, when this is done I will put it in the frames to be hand quilted. I have one more quilt I like to get done before the weather get real pretty, it will be garden time and more outside work, not only that the grands will want to be outside, so the inside work will go a little slower. this was my Tuesday, hope you had a good day! 1 Thessalonians 5 ; V-28 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.
