Normal Tx weather!

Image
Meaning that one day it's in the 60's the next 80's and after a cold front passes through tonight the 40's:( UGH!!!! AC to heater all in one day... yup normal for TX!

I quilted a couple of days so not much to show here and went to Bee and got another Christmas gift almost finished:)

This is the second quilt from Tricia. Very modern!
I quilted lines 1/4 in away and some in the ditch with matching thread. Kept it very linear!
Great backing!
Got a xstitch project ready for me for Christmas:)
This is what I worked on at Bee this week... it was a printed panel with horrible directions:( I was so glad to be sitting by someone that had sewn a lot of doll clothes:) Just some handwork to do and it will be done:)
Hubby's recliner is suppose to be delivered Tuesday afternoon:) YEA!!!
We have started prepping the kitchen cabinets for paint. Will need to construct a box type thing over the cabinets to fill it all in... there was paneling there when we moved in and I removed it …

Happy October:)

Well it didn't feel anything like Fall here this week... the humidity is up and so are the temps:( Keep that AC going!!!

Had a busy quilting week as you will see:)

Hubby moved MIL into the memory care part of her assisted living building. She is getting more acquainted with her own little world in her head. Still recognizes everyone but needs a bit more help. She was excited to get a new room and to also get to visit the courtyard she so wanted to:) Her kitty was able to move with her:)

Ok on  with the pictures:
Roseanne made this beautiful quilt with digital printed fabric.
The flowers were so life like!!!!
I did ruler work, lots of swirls in the background and then outlined a flower or 2 in each block:) Sure made the flowers pop!
3 more Spargo birds are done... 6 to go!
Tricia made this very modern quilt.
Of course it needed very modern quilting!!! I used 16 different thread colors:)
There are swirls, pebbles, and straight lines all over the place:)
This was a donated top given …

Cooler temperatures:)

We have had some lovely morning here this week! And hardly any more rain... that helps everyone catch up on their mowing:) Which Hubby did yesterday while I got all the Fall decorations out:)

we are still enjoying our living room remodel:) Hubby' new chair has not arrived yet:( He is getting a bit anxious about that but it was being custom made for us. We did no remodeling this weekend and it was really nice! Of course we have been ignoring the house cleaning so did get that done today:)

I quilted 3 days and had my errand day where I visited our newest quilt shop in the area... QIY in Kempner. She has a nice selection of fabrics and great prices! I bought 5 Alison Glass prints for $5 a year.... unheard of!

Friday was Bee day and  delivered 4 quilts and brought 4 back to go in the closet:) Nice!!!

Millie is all finished except for the quilting and will press her and get a picture for next weeks post. I have a quilt on the frame and should finish it next week and start another custo…

Happy Fall!!!

Yesterday was the first day of Fall and it sure felt like it here:) I actually wore tennis shoes:) I know:)

We have gotten some rain and cloudy days which is keeping the temps down a bit. I have the windows open all day today and the studio also:) Nice to get some fresh air in!

I went to a lovely quilt showing at the Methodist Church in Belton yesterday... they draped the quilts over the pews. Had such an enjoyable time reading about the quilts:)


No other quilts to show you this week but... the living room is finished... well there are a few more replacements  (fans and blinds) but for right now it is finished:)
These are the before pictures.... View from front door.
Straight as you walk in front door.
From hallway.

Most of the furniture is in either the spare bedroom or in the dining room. The carpet is all up:)  We put the couch and my red chair and ottoman on the curb and Hubby got to watch the jaws pick them up and crush them in the back of the city's truck. He was VERY impres…

Hi All,

Just checked rain gauge and in the past 2 weeks we got almost 4 inches of much needed rain! Unfortunately the humidity is rearing it's ugly face :( Can't we ever be completely happy with the weather? Probably not since it is always talked about:)

I am off all of this coming week but will still be working?? We are doing the living room remodel. As of today all the spackling, sanding and ripping out of carpet is done. We are ahead of schedule:) YEA!!!

I did get some quilting done this past week:

Jill made this Aggie quilt for her son in law that was just recently promoted to Copperas Cove Fire Chief:)
It is for his bunk at the station.
Just stippling all over
My place mats and table runner got quilted and the binding all sewn on:)
Elaine made this beautiful cardinal quilt for her son.
Love how it turned out!
You can see the quilting on the solidish backing:)
Dot made this sweet Project Linus quilt.
Just loop meander all over.
And she made this tulip quilt also for Projec…
