Long Time

seeing if I can remember how to do this!

Saturday, May 16, 2009


Happy birthday to Sophie. She has really changed a lot this year! Now she can walk and talk and talk and talk! If she was Indian her name would be Talksalot. Last Thursday she helped me plant some flowers. She is so happy to be outside. I think she would stay outside all day. I can't wait to take her to the creek and to Kem's pool. She will be a water rat, I think.

I did meet my deadline of April 30! I have just been so busy watching it rain, I am just now getting it posted. The sun is supposed to come out today, so I am in a better mood. Now to get outside and work in the yard! Yeah for the sun!

Bunnyhill April Block

This block was fun to do. I wish the bunny didn't have to be dark brown. Now I need to do the willow block by the end of April. The fishing will be good at the lake this month so I may not get it done by then. Oh well, got to fish when the sun shines.

Bunny # 2

This bunnies dress is made out of a small piece of fabric I got at a yard sale. The background fabric is not as white as it looks. These are fun to make. I may do a white bunny on darker background next.


Just wanted to put something on my blog for Lilly to see. I am ready to work on the forth block. I think it printed out the wrong size, so I enlarged it just a wee bit!

Bunny # 1

Here is the first bunny for the bunny table topper I am making. I am having fun doing this. I am making the wall hanging three bunnies across and three down. This won't be done by Easter this year, but maybe for next Easter. It is fun to pick out different fabrics for the dress.

Headshot of Madi for the play "Annie". She will be one of the orphans. Girls from New York and all over tryout for the different play at Arrowrock. It is a major deal to be chosen for one of the plays. So congratulations Madi. I am very proud of You!

Lilly I finally got the scanner to work! Here are the first three blocks for the Bunny Hill wall hanging. Now I am going to do the Veranda View blocks tomorrow. I have to do block three yet.

Madi I hope you have a wonderful birthday! You have always been a special person to me. I can remember your cute ways when you were a baby. I love you always and forever. You are such a big girl now, but you will always be my "special christmas present".

Don't Faint Lilly

I have finally taken a half-way decent picture of the January block. I must say the colors are much prettier in real life. Now I can go and work on my flannel quilt.

How you have grown into such a beautiful seventeen year old! You are a very pretty girl and I love you very much. I hope you stay as sweet as you are now. Have a great birthday. Your card is in the mail. Love Always and Forever, Grandma

Delectable Mountain

This is a picture of a quilt called Delectable Mountain. I am making one like it. It is going to take a lot of mountain blocks, but I really like this one. My blocks won't be so brite. I will post a picture of one of my blocks soon, if I ever get my bedroom painted!

My Three Little Girls

Last week-end Jack's girls from Marshall came to visit. We all had such a good time. Bill cooked hot dogs on the grill so we had an easy meal. Jacob and the girls talked and talked! You would have thought there were fifty kids in the house. This is a picture of the girls playing with Sophie's toys, while they were waiting for Jacob to get here. Beware world, Megan now has her drivers permit! She has a beautiful picture of her on her permit. Mine always looks like a police mug shot.

My Big Sis is so nice to me!

This is a wallhanging my sister Lilly made for me. She is so creative and a perfectionist! This hangs in my office/sewing room. I love the 30's fabrics. Thank you Lilly, it will always be treasured.

Gourds on the Fireplace

My sister Julie gave a new gourd for my birthday, so I just had to showcase them! Julie made the ones on the ends and I made the one in the middle. I think they are just too cute. I am going to try to talk Bill into letting me get some chickens. Maybe I can tell him with the economy this bad we might need some eggs to go with our beans and rice! If I get tired of the chickens we can always eat them!

Ready for Fall

I know I will think different in January, but for now I am ready for Fall. Everything in the yard has taken on the look of pending doom! I am looking forward to sitting by the fireplace and doing some quilting. It has been a very busy summer even if I did kill the garden. Steve gave me some weed killer and I kind of over done it. Killed everything in my garden! My flowers did really well and looked very nice. I am working on a Christmas table topper this week. I have it pieced and am ready to start quilting it. Monday the guy comes to finish the damage on the shop, then we will be done with the tornado damage. It has been a real pain in the butt, working with the insurance company. I hope we don't have to go through this anytime again soon! Anyhow here is a picture of the front of the house.

Sock Monkey

This is the sock monkey I made for Shelby. She thought it was soft. She had seen the one I gave Sophie for her birthday, and wanted me to make her one. I told her I would make her one for her birthday. When I took it to her I ask what it that she wanted me to make her and she couldn't remember, so it was a surprise! I really don't think she was that impressed!

And Now You are Four

Yesterday was Shelby's birthday. She is now four years old. I think she is just beautiful. She is all girl, I think she thinks in pink. This picture was taken at pre-school last winter. She has changed since then. Bill and I are going to take her present to her tomorrow. I will post a picture of her and the present tomorrow.

The Girls! Three Years Ago

Megan, Ellen and Madi with the purses I made for them. Not to brag but I think I did a pretty good job on them. It is always fun to make something for the ones you love. They live about four hours away now so I don't get to see them as often as I used to. I am trying to think of something to make them for Christmas. Oh! wait I just thought of something, and no Ellen I am not telling!

Doug's Quilt

This is the Friendship Star quilt I made for my son-in-law Doug. This is before it was quilted. It was one of my first quilts. It was easy but still a lot of work.

Sophie and Grace

I watched Sophie for a while last Thursday. This is a picture of her and Grace watching TV and reading. This didn't last long! They were on to bigger and better things in no time at all!

Before and After

Grace went to the groomer yesterday. It had been about four months, so she was way over due! Now you can see her eyes again. I am watching Sophie today, so I should have some pictures of her tomorrow.

Dirty Guy

Can you believe that Kem let's one of her children get this dirty?! This is what Jacob looks like after a day of motocross. He is quite hansome under all the dirt.

Naked Ladies!

Naked Ladies are the only thing in my yard that I am happy about right now. Steve calls them pink ladies. The yellow poplar tree is the reason I am not happy. It is always so beautiful year after year, but this year it has a problem. Just makes me want to say a bad word or TWO!

Sophie and Doug

Sophie had a lot of fun running through the cold well water. I think Kem had the most fun watching her. At 14 months old she isn't afraid of much.

Sophie at Big Sugar Creek

We had a wonderful time at the creek yesterday. Sophie loves the water. She will walk right out into it and keeping going! Yesterday you could hear her take a breath and then dunk her face in the water. The current is pretty strong here so you have to keep a good hold on her. I told Abby we could just pick her up a the bridge if she got loose!

Flying High

Jacob on the race track. He won first place in this race. I know he enjoys racing, but it makes me very nervous! He is fourteen now so he has to have something to release all that energy. Why not golf!

What a nice smile!

My granddaughter Megan got her braces off last month. I think she has such a pretty smile. She will be seventeen in November! Where does the time go?!
