Jan.16… Hand quilt along update…

Half way through January, and it’s a windy,chilly day here in Ga.

This kind of weather makes quilting a real delight, curling up with the quilt your quilting on is sooo toasty warm.🙂

Sorry I didn’t get a post up and running last update. I was too weary after all the Christmas crew . I totally enjoyed all the grands and the children home,however we are adding up to be quite a crew with 22 mouths to feed for several days.

Update time! Last round I was here…

Now I’m here…

The braid and the lines are done with scallops being worked on and the grid work.

A closer look.

I need to add a Camilla to this post, my bushes are blooming their hearts out.

Then there were some that were in a bouquet ,and just about done gone. They still dressed up an old planter.

Oct.24….Hand quilt along update…

I’m doing a finish dance!💃💃👏👏💃💃🥵… getting to old for all that!

Here’s the old girl all finished ,washed with that soft bubble quilting that old quilts get.

Sure wish the one who put the top together could see it….

Here’s a little of the back quilting..

Now for the next quilt in the hoop ,is one that I’ve been pushing back into the unfinished pile. Kathy has got me excited to do it though with hers showing off so beautiful.

I’ll not take a whole picture of it , I’ll just let you see it as it’s being quilted. It’s queen size so it will be perfect to curl up under though the cool winter days.

I’m working on the little star like arms, there are three done along with the centerpiece

That’s it for me this round!

Oct.3 … Hand quilt along update….

I was hoping to finish this quilt by this update … oh well hopefully next update.😁 here is how much I need to do yet along with the binding.

I’m anxious to see it finished .. washed and dried . I have a feeling she’s going to be a beautiful old piece of art…. Wish the maker that put the top together could see her.

I have several projects in line that need to be finished….not sure which one I will do yet.…

I finished the painting for my wall. LouAnn helped me with the side frames. She has lovely hand writing.

A quick update on little Felix.. there’s a good chance he will be able to go home in two weeks!

Isn’t he a cutie!❤️

A heartfelt thank you for all your prayers and thoughts for him!!

I did a little quilting this time around!👏🙂 I’ll try to make sense out of what I’ve done as I did work in a straight row like I was suppose too .

The blue is what I’ve quilted this around.

I have the five blocks to finish and then around them

Update on Little Felix, he had his transplant this week. He is still in the rough stage with breathing hard a concern. This is the picture his momma sent to us.

August 2… hand quilt along update…

I did quilt a little between mowing, and another project that I’m working on. This summer we have been blessed with rain,and the little raised bed is doing great this year. .. as is the grass in the yard. Weeds ..well they grow with or without rain.😁

Update… the black shows were I was the yellow marks what I quilted in three weeks, not much but I’m happy with it.

Here’s the other project. LouAnn and I found some old sheets stuffed in a closet. It’s time to put them back in use in a different form. These rugs are so nice to have on hand.

The gray fabric is hubby’s old pants , makes a very strong webbing.

July 11…. Hand quilt along update…

I got a little to show this time .👏😀 I was able to put some stitches in while the family was here for the 4th….It’s fun to chat and quilt .

Here’s where I was last time.

I finished the row and have started back the other way to the right.

My daughter has fell in love with this quilt. She keeps saying it would look SO nice on the back of her couch… Christmas gift?🤫 I think she would be right happy with that.🙂

Just a quick update on little Felix.. the doctors are very pleased with his health right now. Mom and Dad can hold him as well as his grandparents. That was very exciting for them as his momma wasn’t able to hold little Felix for two weeks. Here’s a photo of him,his is still living with his Berlin heart waiting for a transplant.

Prays for him are sure appreciated.🥰

June 27… about time update…

The first update is on little Felix, they have put a Berlin heart on him until there’s a little heart for him. He does open his eyes and recognizes his momma ❤️

Felix’s folks are handling this very good given the circumstance. They feel the love and prayers of many caring people.

Next update… the little raised garden bed is really doing good this year. I have put squash in the freezer .. shredded,and fried. I would like to make some zucchini bread yet to add to the freezer list.

Hubby came home with around 15 lbs of sweet cherries,nice to have those to put in the freezer.

Of course there has been camping , Leona’s best therapy for boredom.

Leona has a new little friend. …The rabbits have been after my garden and flowerbeds awful! my poor lilies are barely surviving,the sweet potatoes are gone ,now they are working on my echinacea plants.😖

Hubby decided that it was time to get a terrier . So Sparky has join our family.

Rabbit damage

The next project that I have been learning about ,is how to do my own essential oils. I use oils, especially in the winter in a diffuser for Leona. They are also great to have when her muscles get to tight. The problem good oils are pricy!! So I am learning to do the ones that I use the most .

Here’s the distillery.😄

Peppermint plants will be growing around here…. In pots , pans ,tubs … anything that will hold dirt.😄

Next thing that got done that feels so good to have done is a…..

Scrubbed up porch!
The last project that I’ve been working on is this painting. It is a paint by number that I’m just doing my way . I want this to hang on my dining room wall as it is bare right now.

Here’s how far I am… the original way to paint it

My way
And that’s what I’ve been doing along with normal every day chores, and Leona’s care.

June 21, Hand quilt along update…

Sorry folks …no sewing has been done here except for mending a few pants for hubby in these last few weeks!

I’ll do a post on what has kept me silent ,and busy in a day or two!

This photo might give you an idea.

My squash bed

A prayer is requested for my little great nephew , who is in Atlanta Childrens hospital not doing well. Waiting for a heart transplant. The little fella is 4 months old.😢
