Today


Spent a good part of the morning looking for the camera............  Seems like I am always looking for something..........

Now this doesn't look to unpleasant to eat does it?  More pureed food for Lem.......  I do want it to look as appetizing as possible........  BBQ, creamed corn and brussel  sprouts...



Now that we have that out of the way let me show you the latest project.........  Other things have to fit in around the edges of working on this but I want to get another quilt on the design wall.  I found the pattern on Pinterest...  (another site you have to stay away from as much as possible as it will eat time if you are not careful and on a timer.)


Finally got the last three seams sewn on this quilt...........  Lem said that he was tired of looking at it..


Here it is.......  Pressed and ready for the quilter.....  The pattern is from Temecula Quilt Co. and can be found here.....

While sorting fabric I found the perfect backing....  Now to get it pressed and ready to go to the quilter.



I finished this quilt for Wyatt.........  All quilted and bound and ready to wash...........  Then 
I can give it to Wyatt to keep him warm this winter........

Have a good day.......

Hodge Podge

Several weeks ago I lost the battery charger for my camera....  Updated my phone and got one with a camera......  Takes nice pictures it does BUT I haven't yet figured out how to get them on my computer...... Finally just ordered a new battery charger for the camera.......... 

Now back to blogging...............

Now that Lem is on pureed food I do my best to make it look as good as possible.......  Lunch was bratwurst, scalloped potatoes, green beans and sliced tomatoes......  Served with a tall glass o sweet tea.



Our neighbor had his sail boat out on the lake this weekend........... 



We enjoyed watching him tack up and back on the lake.....


Yesterday I finished quilting the quilt for Wyatt..........  Hope to get it bound today..........


Now off to fix lunch............

Let Us Try Again

I know I have been remiss in posting but time has a way of disappearing here...

Once again I will get caught up and try to post at least three times a week.....

The Guild is having a fall celebration and I was asked to make the part favors........  Here they are....Twenty five sunflower pincushions...........  Low on crushed walnut shares now so no more pincushions right away.........



Went outside and gathered some flowers before Matthew came to blow them away............


Donna came with my groceries and a surprise for me.......  Lovely flowers to enjoy in the house and plant in the yard to enjoy for years to come.



Grand son in law Matthew helped us get ready for the hurricane Matthew...........  My family and friends make life possible.....  They shop for us and do things I cannot get out to do myself......

Lem and I would be lost without them.


Seems the porch is closed for the season.......


I have Hospice coming now and that provides some needed assistance........  Not much time to sew but I try to fit in a few minutes each day.........

Last week was difficult because so many roads were underwater........  Much devastation in this area....  Personal friends that have lost everything..........  Not all the water gone yet but at least it is no longer rising........
