June 18th … A Drunkards trip around the world

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.


Fabric up close. I would take a guess that it is a fifties fabric , but if someone knows for sure then please let me know!

Three rows done


Does it look like it would fit in a grandma’s room?

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!!

  This looks like a frog jumping over an alligators snout. Lol

Also was chasing butterflies..

  
And seeing if the little wrens weren’t too hot..


Their little mouths were open hoping for a bite.😀

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

June 11…. update on a double wedding ring quilt

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.


I have 77 of these done and 57 more to do, have two complete rows done with seven more to go.


There are many little stripes of  scraps that I can’t use in the double wedding ring , I made a log cabin block that took 1 1/2 inch strips . I really like the block. 


Did a few more blocks… I think a log cabin is also going to be made out of these old scraps.


There was a gorgeous sunset this evening ….


and of course , I need to add a few more flowers.

 

Oh yes.. I need to share what I found in my washing machine that made me take a second look…


It fell out of my son’s jean pocket when washing. He had been fishing. 

Have a great week ,

June 7…… my favorite book as a child

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 .


Pictures to fuel the imagination..

   


Heartwarming illustrations…

  
 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!!
