in my sewing room------ civil war block 4

Today work on block 4 of Barbara Brackmen civil war quilt blocks, really enjoy following along weekly on this block.I have fell in love with a quilt called Patriots and Petticoat it is a civil war quilt , I would love to do this, but it is a block of the month quilt and the pattern is very high, I was told it cost $72.00 for the pattern and them you would have to buy the fabric, the cheapest I have found is $24.95 a month+ shipping and that is for 11 month, a very expensive quilt but is beautiful!Love at first site! !Oh well move on.
I have little fellow and cup cake to day and they have been busy, so I want get to much done today. On Sunday after church I had my husband 67th birthday dinner with all of the family here, I cook everything before I go to church and when i get back I did the rolls so they would be hot, we all had a great time, no one had to work and we all was together. My husband favorite cake is cocoa cola cake with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge sauce on top. YUM!
I did take pictures so maybe just maybe my daughter will put them on for me and i have pictures of my blocks also.
this all for today, have a great WEEK!

in my sewing room------ A new year!

Where has 2010 gone, seem as we get older the years goes by faster, My grands say it take a long time for the week in to get here and I guess we was like that when we was Young. Well time move on and i have got a lots of sewing i want to do, so i will see how much i can do in 2011. With God help in my everyday life he will see me Thu............
Today Jan.1 ,got to go to the drug store and get my medicine and on to the walmart to exchange a couple of gifts.Our Walmart doesn't have fabric anymore( Boo Hoo)so I Don't like going there much any more. My hubby took me the walmart in Bardstown ,Ky yesterday and they have a good collection of fabric. I buy the quilt of the month fabric and the quilt pattern is free. We had lunch out and also there was a place where lot of people goes and buy fresh sausages, my hubby loves sausage, but it is not one of my favorite.We headed home ,when by his work to pick up some papers, then we when on our way.Back home we rested a while and I when to my Mother in law to sat with her so my sister in law and husband could go to town. so this was my last day for 2010, a very good day!.........
Memories....... When we was young and at home we would be off on school break, Being at home playing with our new Christmas toy , we would just get one gift and some candy and fruit, we thought we had everything, we enjoy what we had but any way we know it was almost time to go back to school, we didn't want to but we know we had to, my baby brother would pretend to be sick sometime and didn't want to go to school and he would get by with it to, maybe not always but sometime, I thought how could he get by with this, but he was mom youngest and i guess she let him get by with stuff more than us, I was just thinking my grand will be back in school next week, some of them are ready to go back and some of them are not.Monday I will have little fellow and don't know about my cupcake, they will let me know Sunday, so the routine will be getting back to normal.................................................!
Happy first day of 2011!
