Tommy cooking steak.
My biscuits on the counter waiting to go into the oven.
This goes with my big quilting machine.
I lost it months ago! I had replaced several of the feet!
Found it yesterday while looking for something else.
I still need to finish the second row. This is the first row finished.
Hopefully I will get all the rows together this weekend and start on the borders.
Have a good one

I did the next one , though I had it right but it was up-side down to. Getting to be a expert at putting them on up-side down!
Monday and Tuesday night's after dark we got good ones to, but it did this last year and as soon as we got the garden in it quit!
Hoping for better this year.

Last week before Wednesday I added the third row but when I finished it was up side down.
So I took it apart and then didn't sew from Wednesday until Monday. It was mad cleaning around here. Tommy outside and me inside.
But yesterday I started in on this one and I am going to stay on it until I finish!
We had to make a trip to Centre Ala. yesterday for parts to fix john deer.
It's parts are a whole lot higher than my sewing machine parts!
We spent $326.00 and when we got home and Tommy went through the bags, one something was missing . I told him to call and let them mail it to him.
It had already took to much sewing time.
I could have bought lots of fabric for that amount of money!
So I sewed the rest of the day and he worked.

We had a good crowd, we missed Anna and Angel because they had to work.
Michael was in Washington D.C. where he is in law school.
Abby's bunch didn't make it either.
But we had a few great grand's looking for eggs.
Shania wasn't to sure about what was going on, she tried to eat the plastic eggs.
They always came to every thing! His brothers not so much! At least they came to Missy, their moms, on Sat. night.
Have a good one

My last barn for the row of barns for my quilt.
Dawn sent me the barn animals in my barn. She blogs HERE
MY rosters and sheep and cows!
I guess because I took out so much stitching that it's hard to tell.
Any way it's getting closer to a finish.
It smells so good!
Not blogging tomorrow , I will be back with Great Grand's hunting eggs on Monday .

Yesterday I finally started quilting Hagen's quilt.
I though I was finished and while adding binding I found I had missed the whole corner, so it back to quilting. of course I finished adding the binding so I can start binding as soon as I finish it!
I will have to play with it one day.
Most of them are gone in just a few days.
I think this is one Amy gave me years ago.

Our dear sweet Dawn from , HERE is her blog, sent me these goodies .
She made my day!
Love the mug-rug and that farm yard fabric.
Have to plan a block for my vintage farm quilt using it.
Right now I am trying to get finished with Blake's quilt. Plus Hagen's Birthday is in May so I need to finish his to.
I have put the other's on hold !
She is our animal lover.

I have all my blocks done, I keep having to go back and cut something else off just to have enough.
A three inch strip front and back with battening in between.
I didn't get much time to work on it until Sat. so that's are far as I got. Plan to work on it again today.
I am going to add a black border but though red would work to, if I have enough red that is?
Just have to look and see about that.
Have a good one

Joining the blocks !
I am joining blocks now as I figure out how I want them placed .
Kelly wanted his Lacrosse shirt's to take center so you could see them good.
So that's what I plan on doing.
His childhood on a quilt!
His mother is my daughter-in-law's sister. I think Amy is going to bring me Tatum's t-shirts for me to make her one for Christmas.
I hate those small package's of interfacing. So I will order it by the yard for hers.
It should be much cheaper.
If you save , you can buy more fabric, Right?

I started putting blocks together yesterday and I think I am going to work on it today.
I saw that I needed more so I went through all the shirts and cut every thing I could find off.
I have been using one with a small plastic round bottom.
It was full of places where the needle had hit it.
I tried it out and I think this will be much better. Still have a bunch of threads to remove from where it was messing up on Hagen's quilt.
The quilters life is full of seam ripping!
Guess I will have to order me one!
There is always something we need, isn't there.

That's not going to be enough! So I made another.
I saw one that the double fabric was sewed on the back, which makes sense because that where the feet will be kicking. but it didn't look as good as the way I do it.
The weather is suppose to get bad this afternoon so pray every one stays safe.
