Beatle Bag

Wow is this a busy time of year or what?

I finished off all my presents and got the last of them sent on Thursday. I just have a few little things that I need to do for work.

I was at a Baazar earlier in the year and saw these bags called IN A PICKLE. They are such a clever bag. It is designed with clear zipper pouches that contain emergency stuff for when you are in a pickle. I thought that there had to be a pattern out there for something similar and guess what.......... I found something.... ya who........Have you seen these Beatle Bags by Abby Lane Quilts? I made one for Christmas for one of the daughter in laws (I can tell because I am pretty sure she doesn't read my blog, she is a non sewer and I would faint from shock if she did). It took me longer to make it than I really thought I had time for but it turned out great. Now to make one for myself but you know how that goes, it will just end up on my to do list. But then again the second time around would be a charm.

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!!!!!
