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

If you look close you can see cattle in the distance.


Curious dirty pigs, these warm days often finds them laying in the little mud hole they made from the drinking trough.


Lovely plumes 


Lovely butterfly,and there are also the ugly catapillers eating the plant.Guess I’ll let them live if them don’t destroy the plant to much.


Dragonfly


Knockout rose


Little lizard


Beautiful dead butterfly that I found.


Large fluffy clouds


And this is what I have been working on this past week ,will be finishing up the job this week. Grape juice.

Not much sewing done this week,did get three rows together on the log cabin and a little beanie crocheted. Here is grandson Brent trying it out.

August 5th, summer delights and a finished top!

As Georgia turns on the summer heat to the 100’s ,there is still much to enjoy. 

 like spending a weekend with these two sweeties.

  

Or helping hubby fix a garage door for a fella who does taxidermy,

  
Or trying to capture pictures of butterflies, 

 
  
  
This plant loves the heat , other plants can melt ,die and just plain look awful,not this one!

  
I did make time for a little sewing…..

  
My Charlecote quilt top is finished!

Now I most work hard on all my hand quilting.

Oh I almost forgot this picture… I call it Jack and the bean stalk. Only it’s a kiwi plant reaching for the sky. My daughter pointed out that there is a little stick figure of Jack running up the vine. Can you find it?!😄

  
Now back to quilting… Deb
