Cool day today!

Good Morning!  Here in southeast Texas we have mostly warm weather -- very little winter.  Well, it turned cool during the weekend.  I don't expect the cool weather to last long, but it is kinda cool outside.  Time to take out those cozy quilts.  If you would like me custom made by me, just e-mail.  I've been making geneous lap quilts; about 50" by 60"; let me know your choice of color and if for man, woman or child.  Here's one I did a while back.....

I Spy Square Set

Good Morning! I didn't think my life could get any busier, but it has, lol. As some of you may know, my DH has been recuperating at my DD's house from major surgery. He returned last Saturday evening and I haven't stopped since then. He can take care of himself mostly, but I am helping him some. One thing he still can't do is cook; and remember, he cooks and I quilt! Well, my DS asked me to make a foil pocket last week. Yesterday, I decided that would make a good dinner. In the first place, I forgot how long it took to cut up the veggies, but it was pretty good, I think. Here is my simple recipe: layer a pan with foil; add 2.5 lbs of ground meat, season to taste. Add onion slices, cut up carrots, potatoes, squash, broccoli or whatever veggies you like. Sprinkle onion soup mix and Cajun seasoning over top. Layer foil over top. Bake 400 degrees for a hour and a half. Enjoy! For the whole recipe, check out my cookbook after I complete it. (It's been in the works for a while now, but I hope to finish it next year.)
I'm still working on square sets in my spare time. I had a special order for I Spy squares. The sizes are 5", but I also do 4". I'm posting a photo of one of the sets; each set will be different, though. I love to use these novelty squares in my I Spy blankies or quilts.

If you are interested, you can visit my etsy store, RaggyAnne, or e-mail.

Red Raggy Tote

It's finally not summer; feels great!  Hope the rain holds off for a little; I like it just like this, lol.
After I made the fall raggy tote, I decided to "play around".  I made a raggy tote, without the Xs and inside pockets.  I did add two outside side pockets.  I'm calling this a Market Bag as it's perfect to put groceries in; size is 12.5" x 12.5" x 4.5" and handle drop of 4.5".  I can make these in colors of your choice.  They will be listed in my selling blog.
ps:  If this one doesn't sell, it wil be mine!

Raggy Fall Tote

How is your weekend?  Mine's a little quieter than usual.  Sometimes there are DGKs running all over; today has been just one 3-year old.  The other one will be here soon, so noise level will increase, lol.  I'm just been taking it easy.  Soon, I'll get back to the blue quilt I'm working on for the Senior Center.  The sandwiches are ready to be sewn into rows. 
Here is a photo of my newest raggy tote.  It's done in fall earthtones colors and is a medium size.  Has nice pockets inside, too.  It will be listed in my selling blog, RaggyAnne.

Good early Morning!

Don't you hate when you wake up extra early and can't fall back to sleep?  Unfortunately, I do that all the time.  What do you do?  I either "play" on computer, read or sew.  Today I decided to blog, lol.
I'm posting two photos of my newest patriotic quilt.  I started this a while back.  I offered to trade fabrics with some of my friends so I could make a quilt for charity.  Of course, my wonderful friends just sent blocks.  I made one quilt, but had blocks left over.  So, I added a few more blocks and made a raggy, sampler quilt.  If or when it sells, the profit will go toward shipping care packages to military.  It is about 48" by 58" and has 100% cotton on front and back and flannel on the inside.  Please e-mail me if you are interested.

Sewing weekend!

Hope everyone had a good weekend; I did.  My DD and her three kids were here, but I did manage to sew.  I finished a patriotic raggy quilt I started sometime back.  Also, made a medium raggy totebag from fall prints.  I also cut some more square sets.  I will post the quilt and purse after they are washed.  I have the square sets listed in my selling blog; check them out!

Quilt Tops For Sale

Hello again!  I have made several quilt tops to sell and need to move them soon.  My youngest DD had her purse stolen last weekend.  The police did deliver her wallet Sunday PM; however her debit cards and cash was missing.  As some of you may know, she sells Avon and that is her way to support her and her young DD.  The cash in her wallet was from orders delivered that day.  The money I receive from these quilt tops will be used to replace the money stolen from her.   Here are the photos:

The Tumbler quilt top is about 36" by 40" and is $15.  The Roses quilt top is about 37" by 45" and is $22.50.  The Floral Patchwork Quilt Top is about 40" by 48" and is $25.  The Butterfly Patchwork quilt top is about 36" by 50" and is $25.  The Roses D9P is 47" by 47" and is $35.  The shipping can be by first class or priority.  Any of these quilt tops can be added to make a larger quilt top.  Any questions, please e-mail me.  Thanks for your interest.

Good Morning!

I can't believe it's already October!  Where has the year gone?  I've been busy, busy sewing and babysitting.  We have three granddaughters; they all have birthdays within four weeks.  Meagan turned 4 yesterday; Sarah will be 13 soon; and Maddie will be 4 on the 28th of October.
Lately, I've been cutting up more squares.  I have 4 inch and 5 inch squares sets ready to sell.  I also have some quilt tops that I'll finish if I don't sell them soon.  Hope you are keeping busy also.
