Today in my sewing, I have finish a baby quilt, hope to get it quilted this week, Our county art fair is coming up and I want to enter the quilt in it.This is the Hardin county homemaker art fair. I did enter a fall tables runner, and a embroidery T towel and my hand done quilt as you go quilt in the Grayson county fair and was please with 2 blue ribbon and a white ribbon..
Today was cleaning day in my sewing room, i done this early this morning, so i could sew this afternoon,I 'm glad to get back to sewing, i have also made a burlap pillow and applique a pumpkin and leaves on it and embroidery the word fall . I have been seeing stuff made with burlap, And I have several yards, that I brought for our grandaughter wedding. for tables runner,. So I need to use it up for crafts. I did make the gran daughter a door wreath with the burlap and put a big L in the middle. It is fun doing these thing, using burlap is a primitive look, and that what people likes.Some of it I do like. But mostly i just like making them.
Today I will say it has been a good day, the weather is beautiful, my grandson and I will take a break and fixed us something to drink and go out on the deck or our from porch and wait for the mail man, He like to talk to the mail man and get the mail. Tomorrow we willl have lunch at school with our little gran daughter, we are looking forward for this and she is to.
This is all for now, Have fun sewing or crafting!!! God is Good All the time !!
Today, is a wet day to work outside, so I will be making one of my T-towel to enter in the fair, I have enter one for the last 3 years and so for i have got blue ribbon on them. Today I also will be work in some corn, I have about 50 years to work up.
IT is beginning to sound and feel like fall, I like fall, but it a sad time because everything is dying for the season. But the bright side, the colors and the fall decoration are so pretty. It is so nice to just sat out on the porch or deck with a glass of tea and relax, which I have done alot of lately.
Little fellow is here today, he misses all of the kids to play with, I will be working with him on preschool stuff so he will be ready for kindergarten next year. He wanted to go this year but was not older enough,so some school work will be good for him..
My first year of school, me and my sister walk to school, with other kids, we live in a small town, so we didn't have to walk to for. I loves my first grade teacher, but to get our first Alice and Jerry book we had to learn all of out ABC and the teacher would point to each one for us to say, so I try really hard to learn them, so I could get my first book. Just a little memory of my first year of school. The school is still standing and now is a tractor place
Verse for today
Proverbs 22; Verse 11 Pay attention to yous teacher and learn all you can.
Today is a beautiful morning, I have little fellow today,he stay all night with us, so he is up and ready for today. My plans for to day, I just don't have any thing going, I guess I need to do more work on the flower beds. Yesterday i put new mulch all around and look so much better, I should of had it all done but I am behind in my outside work. but the bright side is I just have one more flower bed and the north side of my house to finish and it will be done. We also need to clean up the garden and get it ready for next year, and maybe it will be a better garden next year, it was such a hot time and no rain.
It soon will be time for the county fair in Grayson county and I always have my sewing craft made to enter in the fair, but this time I guess I will just enter a quilt, I am running so for behind this time and don't have nothing new made to enter.
Yesterday was my daughter 42th birthday and today is my mother in law birthday she is 92, where as the time gone, it is going to fast. Happy birthday to them both. I will have their birthday dinner this week in.
In my sewing, well not much going on in here, i lay my fabric out to work on,but it is not getting done, I just can't get back in the swing of thing, maybe when i get all of the work done outside I will get back to sewing. Do you all ever get in a mood and just don't do what you like to do , just do what need to be done?
Well guess this is all for this time, hope everyone will have a great day !!!To day verse: Romans 11: verse 36- For all things were created by him, and all things exist through him and for him. To God be the glory forever! Amen.
Well I have been bit by a brown recluse about 3 week ago, and it has been scary. It happen during the night and woke me up, i knock it off but it was fast and bit me so off the the doctor i go. The medicine they gave me i couldn't take so i went back and could not take this medicine, so the third round i finally could take the med. So it look good still got some red color. I have not been able to sleep for thinking about them. You can have you house treated for them for it does help so i have done some research and they all say about the same . Most say get those sticky trap and place them in corner and under the bed around baseboard so this is what i am doing. Had got some more of them in the trap. I kept every thing clean and nothing under my bed but they have come from somewhere.We need to set bug bomb under the house, but they said it would kill good spider that will kill the brown recluse.Since this has happen we know people with new home has them really bad and trying to get rid of them, I also read that white winger will kill them instantly but you will have to see them to spray. They like dark places.
In my sewing room not much going on, I did make a cover photo album for a baby shower, was going to do a baby quilt but Didn't feel like it after the spider bite. So I guess I will get back in to making and sewing again.
It has been a busy summer with all of the grand kids, some good day and some day s not so good, but I do miss them Two of them as already went back to school and the other three will go next Wed. I Will have one and that is the little fellow which is making a big fellow he kept me pretty busy and he will miss the other one to play with. HE miss the cut off by three days and he so wanted to go to school we told him he will be ready next year.
