Preparing for Sit and Sew...There are 3 this month...but two are on the same day UGH
This was fun using up all the "made" fabric...some from 35 years ago.(above)
Below, random strips...
Five bags of rice used...wow...about a third full.
All ready to be sewn closed on the sewing machine.
I am behind on the holiday prep thing..
.I have not even started to cut the tissue holder fabric..
I have had the Go Accuquilt for at least 10 years....never used it for piecing..
only for some applique...fun.. It has just been sitting around..
In deference to all my WIPs and UFOs..
.I am starting something new..
She is looking for me!!!!
Soon, Rosie, soon!!
In the background I see my antique star quilt.
and under the fan on the right, I glimpse the table I bought in Morocco
many many moons ago...love to see the stuff in my daughters house.
Out came my army...they had seen me coming..
All three children and my son.
With no fuss at all and in no time,
everything was brought in and put away.
Amazing...all without me.
There is a certain grandma feeling so blessed...
Kids in the backyard with their scooters...
Glad I have a big yard...
Granddaddy left them a lovely ramp for sliding.
Today, Lynsey and I played the timer game.
I set the timer for 30 min...she cleaned her room and I cleaned my sewing room.
She was finished in 15 min...
Sigh....I guess you know the rest of the story.
I found sooo many treats under my mess piles, that sewing seemed the next best thing to do.
Gotta just love a quilter!!
