Thirty Quilts Finished And Ready For Christmas Boxes

December 5th, 2011

The five quilts were completely finished in record time.  I started rolling them and typing with ribbon and attaching the name tag.  I quickly realized that putting several rolled quilts into a large bag would more than likely damage the name tags and possibly tear them off.  So I stopped with three rolled and just […]

Will Be Warm Tonight

December 3rd, 2011

Because I was still awake at six this morning I did not get up until almost noon.  Did my Bible study and then took off for Monroe to go to Target to get an electric blanket.  Bought the blanket on sale for thirty dollars, which certainly beats the ninety-nine dollar price at Walmart. Went to […]

Quilts Almost Finished

December 2nd, 2011

Did not get up until noon for it was after six in the morning before I finally got to sleep.  Seems that sleeping from six in the morning until noon is becoming normal for me.  Getting up that late makes for a short day.  Had to make a grocery run to Walmart that took up […]

Two More Quilts Finished

December 1st, 2011

In the mail today I received my check for working as a voting commissioner two weeks ago.  Took a little over a month to get the one for working in October.  I really do not like paying to have a check cashed but paying Walmart three dollars was less expensive than the gas would have […]

Four Quilts Completed Today

November 29th, 2011

I can’t believe that I actually completed FOUR quilts today.  Last night I pressed the fabric and cut the batting so that the quilts would be ready and waiting for me to sit down at the sewing machine and start quilting. I slept late and by the time I was ready to quilt it was […]

Addendum To Previous Post

November 28th, 2011

Went to bed at nine thirty and was still awake at eleven thirty.  Got up and had a bowl of popcorn for I have heard that popcorn makes one sleepy.  Certainly hope that is correct.  I cannot believe that I have not fallen asleep yet since I have been up since nine o’clock Sunday morning […]

Two More Quilts Finished

November 28th, 2011

I went to bed last night at twelve thirty (that makes it this morning) and was still awake at eight this morning.  So I just gave up on sleep and got out of bed.  First I did my Bible study, ate breakfast, and then started quilting.  Since I was tired, but still not sleepy, I […]

Nine Quilts Finally Finished

November 25th, 2011

Today I finally finished the nine quilts.  To say I am tired and also tired of quilts is putting it mildly.  But it is nice to see results of my work. I quilted the non Christmas side of this quilt years ago and now it is part of a Christmas quilt and will now have […]

Nine Quilts Almost Finished

November 23rd, 2011

Very few people were at church tonight but was not really surprised since many were already out of town visiting family and I am sure that many stayed home just to work on the meal for tomorrow.  The pastor brought a great sermon on worshiping God by thanking Him for our blessings. Since Scott will […]

Ready For Exciting Day Tomorrow

November 18th, 2011

Today I quilted two quilts and then tonight I have seven pinned and ready to sew together and then turn and topstitch.  No sewing at all tomorrow for I will leave home at five in the morning and will not get home tomorrow night until a little before nine.  I will be working as a […]
