I’ve had to put aside my double wedding ring sewing for there’s another project that needs to be done first. I need to put together a quilt top that is to go into a grandma’s room that an lady in making in her house . I do not have to handquilt it as this lady’s friends wish to quilt it for her. The material that is to be used in the quilt is vintage and is pink. I wasn’t sure what pattern I should work with until I came across the drunkards trip around the world. Perfect …. why … it’s perfect for two colors, it’s an old pattern ,and it interesting enough that the design has been found in ancient Egypt.
I drew up my own pattern to keep me straight with the colors,also added the twist with the corners.
Three rows done
It has warmed up big time in GA.. today it was 93f degrees (33.8 c) So the walk that I usually take was cut start until it cools off!!
That clouds were beautiful,hoping that it means rain is on the way!!
The little dahlia was posing so pretty that I readily agree to take its picture.
Now off the make a menu up of the meals I wish to put in the camper for our trip to Kentucky .
As Leona has a lower immune system, I don’t take her out to public eating areas or restrooms. She also has a special diet that is easier on me if I just plan them out ahead of time. It is amazing to me that a child who the doctors at one time said she will only have a lifespan of ten years ,is now going on twenty.
The next post I’m sure will be on wedding!😀
Until then.. take care , Deb
With all the other sewing that was being done, I haven’t been able to work on this top very hard. I did how ever take a few minutes each day to do a few stitches on it.
Have a great week ,
I decided to lay all the sewing aside for a bit , although I will say I see light at the end of the tunnel. I just have things like buttons to put on, pants to hem up and zipper tabs to sew down. Then all wedding attire will be done.👏😄
I love the book of Misty written by Marguerite Henry. I did as a child and still do. It has lovely illustrations that help fuel imagation for young and old, also heartwarming pictures that tell a story all its own. Let’s take a peek at this old book that was printed in 1972 ,given to me as a Christmas gift .
I grew up not far from Chintcoteague, visited there occasionally ( Chincoteague has the best fried oyster ever!!!) but loved going to Assateague to see the wild ponies,playing in the sand and enjoying the ocean.
My children have had this book read to them, now it’s time for some grand children to hear it!!
I finished Russell’s quilt top yesterday!👏👏 I’m happy with the way it turned out but I wished I would of had a darker green on the other side of the dark navy . Oh well … live and learn. Sometimes things seen in the mind doesn’t look that same when put together.
It is magnolia time here in Ga. I love the scent those blooms put into the air. I did find out that in a small house the smell will overwhelm one.
And the start of a seed pod
Have a great week ,Deb
Today is not May 14 th, but what I’m writing about happened on this day . It was a very wonderful day ,for I enjoyed both my mother in law and my mom. One is 13 hrs driving timing and the other 10 1/2 hrs . Slim chance that it will happen again for one is 80 ,though in good health, my mom 76 not so much in good health, but that isn’t the important thing today.
Mom made a set of pillowcases for my son’s wedding and a pillowcase for each of the girls here at home yet.
It is just lovely embroidery, right? And it is lovely ,only there’s more to it than just lovely embroidery. Mom is totally blind in one eye,and very limited sight on the other side. Often one walks with her to guide her when she goes walking. So to do this she wears a magnifying glass around her neck with a very bright light over her work. It is a beautiful sight to see this beautiful old lady in a chair stitching away!!
Bet you had to go back to relook at that stitching.😉
Now back to my stitching as Russell’s quilt top needs to be finished this week.
ps.. daughter LouAnn framed hers … say it was to pretty to use as a pillowcase.
We had beautiful weather over the weekend ,so we , the family decided it was time to go camping together . It was a special time as Russell will be leaving us soon to move to Kentucky.
There was fishing ,kayaking and hiking along with Camp fire meals and coffee.
And my kayak was a delight ,it felt good to be on the water again. I found that all the yard work earlier paid off.
Take care friends,Deb
