Cyper Monday!

Did everyone have as good a Thanksgiving as I did?  It was wonderful having most of my immediate family here -- 3 of our 4 kids and 6 of our 8 grandkids.  I finally put leftovers in the freezer; there was just too much!
From Friday thru Sunday, I worked on a patriotic quilt; will show a photo after it's washed.  This week I hope to work on small items for a Craft Show I'm doing on Saturday.  I was going to make some more rice bags, but finally found the ones I had made.
Today is Cyper Monday.  So, I'm having a sale....  Just contact me and I'll discount any item 10% off.

Wednesday, November 14th

Hello!  I've been trying to post a blog all day; was so busy this is first time I could do so.  Today was another quilting day at the Senior Center.  It was kinda wild, but also fun.  There is a group learning about crazy quilting.  As much as I love doing crazy quilting, I didn't want to start another project.  We had started doing scrappy strip blocks a couple of weeks ago and the ladies wants me to finish a quilt for our Sale.  So, that's what I worked on.  The blocks will be traditional, but will be put together in the raggy style.  I'll post photos when it's finished.  The sale is December 1st, so I don't have much time.....
I've also finished another two market totebags.  I'm keeping them simple -- only side pockets on the outside.  That way, the inside is perfect for carrying groceries, meds, etc.  Here is the newest floral one; I'll post a photo of the purple one later.

November 12

So, how was your day?  Mine was busy, busy.  I cleaned house, sewed a little, babysat a little.  Even got to see our youngest DGS & our oldest DS for a little while.  I finished three more kiddie mat covers; they're so cute!  I'm listing one on etsy; hope to sell the other two at Josh's Day Care.
Here is a photo of my latest raggy tablerunner.  It measures about 20" by 35" and is for sale.  If it doesn't sell by Christmas, it will be on my table for Christmas dinner, lol.

It's November!

Hello!  November is just speeding by.  On November 3rd, my DH & I celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary.  Can't believe it's been so many years, lol.
My DS asked me to make a pillowcase for a kiddie mat for his DS.  I did something a little different; it came out cute!  Here's a photo:
I do One of a Kind (OOAK) items, so won't do a pillowcase exactly like this one.  However, it might be similiar.  If anyone is interested, just e-mail me with theme and colors.
