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.


  1. Love the words about your memories of your grandmother. I feel the same way. On holidays like Easter I put up a big poster with pictures of past Easters on it. I will have one for Sunday. All my grands are too old for Easter egg hunts now but they will get a kick out of the pictures from past Easters. You got lots of sewing done today and yesterday for sure. Easter blessings to you and yours.

  2. Great blog! Lovely memories are to be treasured, often forgotten on hectic days. That`s why I enjoy to sit down with my stitchery; peacefully. This Easter I will be doing more stitching of a Garden`s Journal.
    Happy Easter to you.

  3. What lovely memories you have and what lovely memories you're making for your grandchildren too.

  4. I would love seeing how the rag balls look when you finish. I don't know what a stump doll is. I just love prim crafts.

  5. Oh I love hearing about what all you are making. I can't wait to see them. Have a very blessed Easter.
