in my sewing room------ much needed rain!

today is a good day to be in the sewing room, I have been getting some more blocks ready to make more spider web blocks for the quilt and ironing some strip for my quilt as you go quilt, this pattern is called Amish spring quilt, I just work on it in the winter months but thought i would get it out and get it ready to work, it will be reversable ,one side will be strip in different blues and the other side is in all color prints, it is turning out good and I'm doing it all by hand, so when it done it will be DONE!Well i guess i better do the binding on it.......
I just have little fellow today and he is taking a nap, a nap does sound good but that is something i don't do is lay down and take a nap. my brain won't let me, i think of thing i need to be doing. i will have my three grandaughter this week in, their mom will be working and my grandson first football game is on Saturday so good luck to him!...
Thanking back in the days.... I was reading from another blog friend and seeing her pictures make me think of my grandma, she live in a little trailer and had a little wood stove to heat it with, i just love that little stove and would like to find one like it. I use to try to stay all night with her but i would get home sick in the late evening , i would be thinking about my dad coming home from work and mom would have supper ready ,so i just had to go home, it was in walking distance so i would tell my grandma i need to go back home and i would come and see her again. I have a pitcher that my grandma gave me when i got marry, it was a green depression glass pitcher , she would always make kool aid in it it would be orange or red or grape koolaid. I will treasures this pitcher and my grandma.....
Didn't mean to go on so this is all for now and hope everyone will have a great week in. GOD IS GOOD!


  1. Taking a few moments to remember things in our past, is a good way to help our minds relax, even if you can't take a nap.That is our problem. Our minds are so overworked from each days doings, we can't turn it off, and that kind of stress will kill you.Women have a hard time thinking that way, but if we,the main care givers, don't take care of ourselves, how can we take care of others?Nice post, Connie. The showers have cooled things down tremendously. Isn't it nice.Maybe we can sleep with the windows open tonight, but then it might be 50 degrees again in the morning.What's a fellow to do? We can't win!

  2. Wonderful memories for you, Connie. You can send some of your showers north to mid-Indiana; my area looks like Kansas because we need rain so badly. Loved all your projects & ribbons...congratulations! Mary

  3. Oh I love to read of these memories. I can't wait to see the quilt you are working on. You inspire me. I need to get busy. Hey, we are just alike...I cannot take a nap during the day either! I think I am afraid I will miss something.

  4. Hey I have posted a picture of the quilt Granny made from the USA fabric you sent her. I have never shown this quilt until now. The funny thing is that she gave it to me before she left us. It even has her famous "Granny border" on it. I cannot thank you enough. I am using it at the Sparta Hilton.

  5. Just wanted you to know that I tagged you in a fun Question meme. I understand if you don't have time to participate but I would love to know more about you.
