Baazar

It has been a hectic couple of weeks.


Just seems like yesterday that I blogged but life happens and time has flown. Yesterday Bev and I did the PEO baazar. It was a very nice venue and we did pretty good. We left 3 men at home with 4 kids and the house did survive, sorta.
 We had one table with precuts on it and one table with handmade quilts and blankets. Bev made most of the items and I quilted them.





                                                                      Lots of food.
                                                                   Lots of work.
 A friend from work had a booth also and I got her on candid phone......ha ha.

A Finish and Mail

 I finished this quilt for my mom. Yea.... I have so many waiting.....I can hear them calling me....."I am next"...."no me"....with a little crying on the side.

I got mail. Lapel sticks, they were just to good of a deal to pass up. It is all Barbs fault, if she hadn't posted such a good deal, I wouldn't have fallen for it. I can see lots of projects in my future ;)

Phew What a Weekend!!!!!!!

No sewing for me this weekend. We did 130 - 2 quart jars of apple juice on Saturday. We set up a production line in the back yard. Shreded the apples, pressed them and then pasteurized it. That was only 2 1/2 trees and we still have 4 1/2 more trees out there. These old bones are crying for mercy. 
 My mom and two of my girls got their family quilt block done while I was busy cooking and doing all the misc stuff that needs to be done when there is a house full of people. It is called basket of chips and you can find it here http://www.quilterscache.com/B/BasketofChipsBlock.html.

 Look at this awesome rug my daughter made me. I let her take my weaving loom home and she has already been making projects like mad. This was her first project and she gave it to me, how cool is that.

I need help, for some reason I haven't been able to reply to anyone that post on my blog. The replies just keep coming back as undeliverable mail. Does anyone out there know how to fix the problem or what causes it? Some advice would be great. Thanks!!!!!

3 Finishes for the City Quilt Group

 The City Quilters did all three of these quilts and I quilted them. We have a quilt show this week at the museum and the money we raise we use to fund more quilts for the next year. The ones that don't sell we donate to the police and fire departments to use when they have  a situation that calls for a little extra comfort.

Mail Bag



We have this mail bag at work that is a dirty old canvas bag. I tried to wash it but it wouldn't come clean. In the picture above it actually looks better than real life. So I made the quilted bag that you see in the first two pictures. I bought a yard of pre-quilted fabric (being lazy), very cute selections of pre-quilted fabric out there. I used all the fabric. I cut 3 strips 3inches by width of the fabric for the handles and the rest was the bag itself. I even used the pieces I cut off for the bottom of the bag for a pocket. Nothing was left except for 4 little teeny tiny pieces.

Rather than try to explain how I did it, since I didn't take pictures of the process, but it was very easy, here is a link to a bag that is similar except it is pieced. Terri Stegmiller Big Tote.

Canning, canning and airplanes!!!!

 This is what went on at my house today. Peaches and Plum Jelly. Canning season doesn't leave much time for sewing but my mom and I did manage to get out family quilt block done for the month. Yea. It was quite a stretch for both of us. No pattern dimensions just a tutorial with wing it instructions. OCD seems to run in the family and a pattern was sorely needed but we are done and can move on to bigger and better things.
