My son has been dating a lovely girl….
Of ,course I have a quilt to make!! I’ve started on it … here is half of it…
My … how time has flown,bringing more changes. Hard to believe that the youngest of my four boys is leaving the nest.
I must say that this is the second time around that I’m writing this post, the first one ..much to my surprise ” with you’ve got to be kidding ” to internet disgust that it was all deleted because of an app crash.🙁
On our way home from Illinois we stopped at two museums,we really enjoyed them. It would have been nice if it had been warmer for the outside activities we didn’t do.. like taking the zip line.
The first museum we stopped at was The Creation Museum,it was very hard to get pictures without people for the places were very busy!
I’m doing a short update on a few scrap tops that I put together . I want to get a few more done ,that way when hubby goes out of town here soon, I’m going to use the dining room table to knot the tops. When hubby leaves ,Leona and I just eat whenever,as the other children, ages 22 and 24 ,at home often have their own plans.
I was surprised at how the different creams and whites came together, I wasn’t sure if I was going to like using so many different shades of cream and white. Had to use a few other light colors to finish out the light out around the dark.
Working on a stack of these blocks now
Oh yes,I found the neatest way to quickly learn knitting online.
Break time over,back to sewing. Deb
It is that time of year when hubby goes to dealer meetings again. I alway enjoy riding along ,taking a littler sewing machine then while hubby is in meetings I sew away. Here’s a peek into our journey.
We started out with temperatures in the upper 70’s … so in packing I only put in a heavy sweater forgetting just how cold some parts of the US still are. I really didn’t mind the temperature drop until it hit freezing and below temperatures…. needless to say there were a few times I was nearly frozen myself.😄
Now for all the quick miscellaneous shots…
Soooo… what did I work on while hubby was in meetings….. take a guess😄
I also took a book along to read,”Georgia quilts” what a wonderful book! I didn’t get it finished completely,but I did find a pattern in there that would use my little scraps up ,that would make me very happy. It was made by two black ladies here in Ga .
The flower petals were done by Mary Lizzie Parham in her elder years then her daughter Annie Howard finished it after her mothers death. Fabric era… about the same time frame as what I’m working with now….
We did go to two museums on the way home ,that I will do a later post on.
Yesterday was a very lovely day,so I walked down to the little church at the end of our road which is 3/4 of a mile from our farm. This little church is full of history… let me show you this unique church.
And there are quite a few babies lain to rest … this always tugs at the heart as I stand there looking down at these little graves..there were several of the wealthy that loss little ones.
And of the less wealthy.. these were just a slab of cement with writing laying above the grave.
The second grave where you see the stone broken,was probably done when Sherman was going though on his March from Atlanta to Savannah.
Undated grave,and a young lady’s
Now for the church…
I posted a article from on line for more information if you care to read.
Today was a beautiful day,sunny ,warm with a soft breeze,perfect for a Sunday stroll….
Our farm in view from the road…
And of course there’s a few rings in progress…
