Papillon (French for butterfly)

Posted on May 17, 2018 at 12:12pm 5 Comments

As part of my commitment to finishing older UFOs, I looked through the drawers of an entertainment center I have in my sewing room to see what I could find that could be finished fairly quickly.  This was a New Year's Eve mystery from 2003 & was supposed to be 4 placemats with a log cabin block on one end & a plain block with an appliqued daisy in a flower pot on the other.  I had only made the 4 log cabin blocks so I decided to make 4 more log cabin blocks plus put a plain block in…

my daughter with her new quilt

Posted on May 15, 2018 at 8:57pm 7 Comments

My daughter decided 2 years ago to go back to school to get her Associates Degree. She has been a single mother since her 2 boys were very young so it was not always easy to work & go to school, but her dad & I are very proud of her for sticking with it.  We are encouraging her to continue on to get at least a 4 yr degree.  She will officially graduate on Friday night & her oldest son will graduate from high school on Sunday.   I gave her this flag quilt as a symbol that we can…

jelly roll rug

Posted on April 15, 2018 at 4:10pm 9 Comments

After seeing pics of the jelly roll rugs that have become the rage around the country, I decided to sign up for a class at one of my LQS to make one.  It was such a fun class although part of the project is very tedious.  Rather than use a jelly roll I decided to cut up my own scraps in to 2-1/2" strips.  Plus I had lots of left over cotton batting so I cut my own strips of that as well.  Of course I have enough 2-1/2" strips to make 10 more rugs if I so choose, but at least I made some dent…

I love Teapots

Posted on April 11, 2018 at 1:10pm 7 Comments

I finished another quilt that has been lingering for way too long.  The blocks were machine embroidered by members of the Machine Embroidery Buddies group as part of an exchange.  I had the teapot fabric for many years & this was the perfect quilt to use it for.…

Spinning Pinwheels

I finished another quilt tonight.  This one is made up of blocks members of the Piece Around the World group made for me for my birthday a few years ago.  

Here is a pic of the back:…

Janet, 

The grandsons are doing well.  They are so fun!  The oldest is 4, the one that was a micro premie is going to be 2 in July and is a beefy little guy, and the latest one is 9 months old and walking already.  I've been shopping my stash for the baby quilts, and that has been fun.  It feels good to use up (or at least make an attempt) what I have.  Since I never bought much yardage of any one fabric, it forces me to be creative with patterns and borders.  Something that doesn't come easily to me.  I love seeing your finished projects.  That HAS to feel so good!

Happy New Year!  We have had around 10" snow and subzero temps.  It always seems colder when the when blows.  Keep warm!  Great time to quilt.  (Well, I guess anytime is a great time to quilt...)  :D

Janet, I posted a picture of GS#2 (the preemie who is now 18 months) on the main page under the GS#3 post.  He's doing really well.  Seems to be on track or ahead developmentally and has no health or learning issues.  Just a robust, healthy little guy, for which we are very thankful.  

I'm working on making apple butter from applesauce today.  It is a crock pot recipe.  The apples we use (from a neighbor's tree) seem to be very sweet, so I was glad to find a recipe that doesn't add extra sugar.  I'm hoping it turns out well (first time using this method/recipe) so I can use it for gifts.

Janet, I wouldn't be surprised if they dropped the case with Bud. If they did it would be nice to have let me know. In Bud's POA Bud has me as his guardian. But the hold up was or is that his doctor maintains that Bud is capable of making his own decision on whether he wants to go with Barbara. I talked with his doctor the other day when I was visiting Bud and he had to admit Bud's mind is getting worse. This should never have happened. This Barbara had not seen him in the 20 years that he has been with me so all her motive was is to get his money. Bud said to me the other day, "why don't you call your mother and have her watch the kids, so we can go out and have a meal together" My mother has been dead for 11 years and Bud and I never had any kids together so that's and example of how his mind is.

Hi, I voted for your table runner AND it is the best one!

After this last trip to the hospital, I know that the assisted living place is not healthy.  They found me to be both anemic and very malnourished, which I'm trying to turn around while I'm in rehab.  Too bad this is a nursing home...I would love to stay here.

Once a person gets Cellulitis, we are prone to get it more often than most.  As long as you know what to look for, you can catch it in the early stages.

Janet so sorry to hear about your DIL. I will be praying for her.  As we are all aware, cancer is a terrible disease and the treatments have side effects. My sister has lost her taste, and has neuropathy in her hands from it. Plus diarrhea  and a bunch of other ailments.  I will pray that she will recover from it. Many do.

As for Bud and the phone, they aren't allowed to keep it from him. But he don't call that much if he knows I'm home.  He panics when he calls and I'm not here even though I tell him where I'm going.  His dementia he can't remember half of what I tell him.  Sometimes I just shut off the answering machine. But most of the time I forget to do that.

Morning Janet,

Bud is about the same.  I took a boiled dinner over to my sister's last night and had supper with her and her caretaker. I had 25 calls on the answering machine when I got home.  Insanity runs in his mothers family and his actions indicate he inherited it.  He panic's if he can't reach me and will keep re-dialing if I don't answer.  You can hear the anger and fear in his voice when he is leaving his messages.  Even though frustrating for me it must be awful for him to be like that.

Janet tell your friend who is downsizing that you take charity. lol  I have the last load of fabric in the dryer.  I have been washing since 7:30 this morning. It is now 1:30.  My first load the washer sprung a leak.  While the men were fixing it I had to go up to the next unit.  (4 apartments to each unit) to wash.  I hung as much as I could on the line but used the dryer for the fabric.  I did bedding, my regular wash and bedroom mats.  Now I'm thinking I could have saved some for tomorrow. You know, hind sight.
