Thursday, the 28th

I was just reading in my friend's blog; she posted some of her history. I thought it was interesting, so thought I would write a little about myself. Even though I've lived in Texas all my life, I'm not a "native". My mother went home to her hometown to have all three of her children. So, my birthplace is Crowley, LA; I call myself a cajun Texan, lol. At six weeks old, I came to Texas and have lived here every since. I do have lots of relatives left in Crowley; not as many as the oldest generation have passed away. At one of the aunts funeral, my cousins and I realized we are the oldest ones now. How strange! We had a few family reunions a few years back; maybe they'll do another one sometime. Of course, it will make me sad, as my parents were still alive for the last one. OK, enough for now. I'll post again another day.

I finally finished my latest raggy quilt. This is truely a OOAK (one of a kind). I used some scrappy strip blocks from a swap I did years ago; plus I made more blocks. The size is 46" x 56" and has a charm border. I will be listing this quilt soon; not sure where yet.

Peaceful January Sunday

I'm so glad it's not rainy today. It's almost like spring here in southeast Texas. So glad some of my grandkids live close to us. Here are our two youngest DGKs. Meagan is now 16 mos. and Madison is now 15 mos. They both love grandpa!
I'm still working on the scrappy strip quilt. Almost through with the inside; I'm still thinking of the border.....

Yea Friday!

Even though I'm now retired, I still love the weekends. It's a free, relaxed time. This weekend I'm hoping to get back to my reorganization of my sewing room. It might take me all year, but it will be done in 2010!
I did manage to list some auctions on eBay. Here is one of them: Check them out. I do love making the scrappy strips. Today I'm putting together a raggy quilt from blocks I swapped in an eBay group years ago. I'll post a photo when it's completed.

Brr, it's cold outside!

I have spent the last few days trying to stay warm. I know lots of you are colder than we've been, but, hey, this is southeast Texas! Today it's finally warmed to 40 degrees and will be getting warmer every day.
I've been busy sewing. I'm trying my hand at quilt block kits. Will be posting them as soon as anything is ready.
I snagged the photo from one of my eBay groups. Isn't it too cute?
bye for now!

I've been busy reorganizing my sewing room. Found so much fabric, won't need to buy any more for quite a while, lol. Seriously, I will be listing fabric in my blog; also vintage fabric in etsy. If you are looking for certain colors or prints, just e-mail me. I also found so many quilt tops; going to be listing some also, as no way can I ever quilt them all. It will take me a while to list, as we're preparing for our son's wedding in less than two weeks. We are so looking forward to adding a wonderful daughter in law to our family.

Can you believe it's already 2010? I hope this is a healthy and prosperous year for all of you.
