Thanks Debbie

DH found the settings icon and clicked on that and it said to select post editor, then updated editor  than save settings and it all seems to be working.....yeah....I guess when you don't post for forever things do change....Am going to try to do better. Thanks again

Tis Just me

WOW, It has been 6 months since my last post....I sure am slow. Life seems to get in the way, I was about on "track" and then on Mothers day, we were in a head on wreck.... Very scary day and one we ( DH, DS and DDIL) will never forget. After all , we did all come out with cuts, bruises and I had a couple broken ribs,it has taken a while to get back on track again. But we are ok....Very Thankful!We would like to thank everyone for all your prayers and good wishes, Thanks so very much****
Yesterday was my birthday and I want to also thank everyone for my BD wishes,it was a good day. Our GD and her Boyfriend came over and went to lunch with us, then last night our children and their spouses surprised me with cake and ice cream. YUMMMEE
I have done some sewing but haven't had the time to be on here to post and certainly not to do pictures, so forgive me for that.I have made several quilt tops and now need to get busy and get them quilted. I plan to teach classes in making 2 of them, one in August and the other in Sept. But I need to get them on display. My plans are to get one of them sandwiched tomorrow. Maybe I cam quilt some on it next week.
My sister and BIL have moved down here and their furniture will be delivered to them on Tuesday, so I plan to help them out some next week.I know they will be glad to have a bed to sleep in, they have been sleeping on an air mattress, I know that is getting old. (YES, I did offer them a place here, but once they had the keys that is where they wanted to be and I can certainly understand that***
Hope all is well and everyone is getting a lot of sewing done.As for me, I'm slowly but surely getting back to normal.

Well....It's been a while, but I have been busy.DH and I have been cleaning closets and now working on Computer/ Sewing Room. Whew.... But about finished. We are rearranging some things, and trying to get all my rulers hung on the walls, closer to the cutting table. Before everytime I cut something I had to go across the room for the ruler.....THEN....DUH.... The light bulb came on.... Dummy, move them to the side you need them! He also added me a couple more storage drawers. I told him I needed some more space since I will be going to the APQS Quilt Show in Hampton, Va. next month. So, voila, I have moved stuff and added the drawers, so now I can Shop, Shop, Shop. Actually I don't know of a thing I need,but I am sure I will find something!

It is so cold here, but thank goodness no snow yet. I hope it passes us by. Cold wet weather makes these old bones hurt....But it is supposed to be in the 40"s tomorrow and that will be good.

I now have my very own computer, can't do much with it, but couldn't do much with our desk top one either, but am trying....wish me luck.
Going to get off here and try to relax a little before bed. Have a goodnight everyone. Later,

Snow, Sister , Granddaughter and THREAD

Sorry, Can't get my pictures to work, and am home alone!!!! Just wanted to check in and make sure everyone is ok....Did you get much snow? I think we got about an inch, but we also got about that much ice. The main roads are all about clear now and so are most of the secondary ones. I know everyone is wanting to get back to their regular schedules, even our GD said she wanted to get back to school, there's "nothing" to do.......Pitiful. pitiful....LOL.....
My sister and BIL are stuck in San Antonio , Texas....can't get a plane out.....they were supposed to leave yesterday morning, and now are hopeing for this afternoon. I just want them to be safe, they will get home soon I am sure.
I am still sewing on GD's tote bag, I always seem to think I do not need a pattern, so make up one on my own....sometimes that works really well....sometimes not so good....this one is not so good, but I will get it made....just takes me a while longer than usual. She is anxious to get it in her hands though.
Since I have the rest of the day to myself, I think I will try to get out for a bit, I really do need to go to the LQS, I have NO black thread....I cannot believe I have let that happen,,,LOL
Will get back to sewing as soon as I get some thread. BOBBIN

I now have 4 finished baby quilts......This one is the one for our great granddaughter, she is now 18 months old, but I hope she will enjoy it for a few years anyway. It matches her room, her room is done in Safarie animals and birds. I had already made the cribskirt (before she was born) but a lot of problems kept me away from the sewing machine. But am happy to say it belongs to her now!!!!! Her Mom was extremely happy and wrote me the sweetest Thank You.... This shows the back of the quilt, the stripes is what the cribskirt is made of!!!

This playmat ,I made for Big Brothers Christmas, of course he had to have trucks and cars to play with, we supplied that also. I think he will enjoy this, but as with all little ones (he's 2 1/2 years),
he was so overwhelmed with all the hustle and bustle of Christmas , I'm not sure he even knew what he had. But I am sure by now, things have calmed down and he has had time to play with it. Mom and Dad appreciated it!

The above picture is the recepiants of the quilt and playmat along with me, GG....Greatgrandmother......I'm predujiced I know but I think they both are adoreable. They sure did make my Christmas happier.... More quilts to come, another day....Have a great evening and keep warm....It sure is cold here....

Yes, I am on a roll. Today I finished quilt #3, did a little shopping and got my tree up. Whew.......
I'm tired.I have things to do for the next couple days,know I won't get any sewing done tomorrow but may find some time on Thursday. Wish me luck****
It is terribly cold here, so if it's as cold where you live please stay in if possible and look after the elderly and your pets.Hope everybody can be safe and warm.....
I hope you have all your Christmas gifts made or bought and are sitting back in your easy chair enjoying the season.... Later, Bobbin

***YES*** I have completed 2 of the 4 quilts that I have started,I also have one of the others sandwiched...Plan to work on it tomorrow.....I think I will get it finished quilted ,at least, I may have to wait until Thursday to bind it, but we will see. Then I plan to get the last one sandwiched, so that I can get it done. DONE, now that sounds doable, have been wondering if that word was in my vocabulary, it has been a while since I have fimished a quilt. Some of these quilts ( all are for babies) are quiet a bit larger than the sizes that I usually make, I will definitely be more mindful of that from now on. After Christmas I am going to try to start quilting (again) a top I made several years ago. It's a king size and I have already started quilting it, I soon found out that quilting a quilt that large on a domestic machine is a back breaking job. But I do want it finished , so I can use it on our bed.I't isn't much good lying folded up under my cutting table.
I am sure I will not get that finished very soon, but I do plan to give it to myself for a Christmas gift next year...***LOL***
I have several projects I want to do, so have big plans for 2011.
Our job is done for this year and as I have said, I don't plan to go back, so we are meeting with our boss on Wed. and I will tell her then....I still don't know what my hubby is going to do, and I really don't want him to travel by himself, so I guess I will know what his plans are on Wed. as well.He says he still hasn't made up his mind...........I think at 70 years of age it's time to take life a little easier.
Our daughter just called to inform us that she and her family is going to Ky. for Christmas...I am so bummed out , but what can I say....Her hubby hasn't spent but one Christmas with his Mother in the 25 years they have been together, and I really don't begrudge that, but Christmas won't be the same. Of course, we won't be alone, we still have our son and his family, so am sure they will be with us. They always are.....And that is great.
Will post pictures of the quilts after Christmas, someone that is receiving one of them may be reading my blog....I know they used to, but since I have been so slack in blogging they may have forgotten to check in...LOL
I hope all of you are enjoying getting ready for Christmas, I have about all my shopping done, will probably finish on Wed. after we see our boss. I really don't have much to do, so should have everything done by Wed. night....NOW, if a good fairy would just come wrap them for me...SIGH..Anybody know any good fairies?
Gotta run, will check back soon, hopefully with 2 more finishes...YEAH
