The pattern is free!

My one monthly goal for November will be to sew the pinwheels.  I think there are 56.  That should keep me busy and out of trouble.

A small giveaway of three charm packs.  I think all the pieces are there, but then again I could have stolen a few.....grin.

The Winner was Barb....Congratulations!

Just leave a comment.  I'll pick a winner soon, most likely when my old brain remembers.

We had a visitor enjoying the acorns.

We had a front come through today and give us some much needed rain and cooler weather.  It's 70 right now....might have to turn on the heat...giggle.

One Monthly Goal - I Believe in Snowmen

I met my September Goal 

One Monthly Goal

I'm so excited that I have a finished flimsy!!  

I looked around online and the only quilting of this pattern that I found showed the blocks quilted in lines.  Different directions for different blocks.  They were of the original quilt and quite hard to see if the white thread went over the embroidery.

Any suggestions or photos would be appreciated on quilting this.

Disaster Relief Block and Birthday Present

Karen at KaHolly's Quilty Pleasures and Nature's Treasures is making a quilt for Auction to support Disaster Relief.
Hop over to her blog and check it out.

For her Birthday she's asking for blocks.  This is mine.  

Happy Birthday Karen!!!

I used this wonderful pattern from Sew Fresh Quilts called Dog Gone Cute Block 7.

The pattern is excellent and so easy to follow.


Elly wondering why I'm playing with a dog when I have her to follow me around all day...giggle.

2017 Designer Block of the Month - Block 4

Block 4
2017 Designer Mystery

"Soda Pop"
Designed by Kate Spain

A few of my favorite things!
Some of you may have seen them before.

A couple of Boyd's Bears, some floss holders, and a box that belonged to my Grandma Jessie.  The top is starting to peel back, but it reminds me of her. 

A white bear I rescued from my daughters garage sale.  The purse was crocheted by her friend Julie who grew up next door.  Many more toys all over the floor.  I know I'm still a kid at heart.  The pretty lamp was given to me by my daughter. 

Looking through some of my Mom's stuff, I found these two beaded necklaces.  I believe one of my brothers probably made them for Scouts many years ago.

One Monthly Goal

I did meet my goal for August, but barely.  I planned on doing more, but have a big booboo on my knee.

I heard a noise in the garage, hopped up from my computer chair, caught my big toe in the hem of my boot leg leggings, and bam down on my right knee first and then everywhere else.

I screamed for Big Mick to come help me, but he was sleep watching TV with his earphones on.  It then took a while to wake him.  Plus he has a hearing loss.

Even with him here, looks like maybe I need one of those buttons around my neck to call for help or maybe just a whistle.....giggle.

It swelled up about 4 inches above and below my knee.  The swelling is almost down, but very black and blue even on the back of the knee.  It happened several days ago, but that sucker still hurts.  

My sewing is set up so I have to get up to iron a seam.  The thought was I would get at least a little exercise.  If I did, it didn't help much.  

So I'm just sitting around whining a lot (Grin).

I'm sure after the Hurricane, I'll be back at it.  We are in Elgin, Texas.  The first feeder from Harvey is close, but might not get us with that batch of rain, but the wind is blowing.

The prediction is any where from 4 to 20 inches for Bastrop county.  That's not very specific.

I guess maybe 8 inches, of course, that might be wishful thinking.

We are as prepared as you can get.

One Monthly Goal

This little guy eats lunch with my daughter most everyday.  He's soooo cute.  Her lunch mates don't appreciate him.

What a face!!

Everyone in Texas stay safe and leave if you need to.

Prayers for all in Harvey's path.
