I hope all of you are having a great weekend. It is cold here but it’s a beautiful, sunshining day. I finished my Eleanor Burns quilt this week and waiting for it to be picked up. I love the colors in it. I quilted it with the panto, Fantasia by Hermoine Agee. I really love how it looks. I used Maxi Lock Snomoon.
I hope you can click on them to enlarge them. I used Randi’s tip but if anyone can mess something up it is me.
Here is pix of the Logs and Swirling Leaves quilt I made for my son’s in laws. I love how it turned out. I quilted it in freehand swirls but I made them big so they look like spirals. I used Maxi Lock Mother Goose.
I love, love, love how it looks on the back.
A few days ago I responded to a post from Vicki about some garment sewing I had done years ago. She suggested I post about it so here it is. When my niece Tabatha Leigh Cooksey, was a little over a year old I picked up her one day, which I did alot, dressed her up in a red velvet dress with white pinafore that I had made and took her to get her picture made as a surprize gift for her Mother & Grandmother for Christmas, 1984.
Isn’t she a doll?
To show how big a surprize it was, look at this.
That is my dear Mother on the left and Tabatha’s Mother, Judy, on the right. I think they must have been catching flies as wide as their mouth is.
Here is the tears picture. We did not know when this picture was taken that less than 5 years later my Mother would pass away from cancer at the too young age of 57, the age I am now.
I also made a dress for her to wear to my Brother’s wedding. It was just a simple A line made from blue dotted swiss. I then attached lace and ribbon across the shoulders and three layers of wide lace on the body in a fake pinafore look. I couldn’t get it to hang like I wanted to until I washed it, then it looked exactly how I pictured it. You can’t really see it in this pic but I thought it was cute anyway.
My sister’s oldest daughter, Cheri Renea, is on the left, Judy and Tabatha.
Here is a pic of my brother Steve and Tabatha taken the day of his wedding, April 21, 1984.
My brother was killed August 10, 1991, in a 18 wheeler wreck in Nashville, Tn, the day before my 40th birthday. He was just 30 years old.He left behind a wife and 2 daughters, age 5 and 3. They have become beautiful young ladies that he would be very proud of.
Well, I guess that is all I have to share today. I hope I didn’t bore you too much. Hope all of you are ready for Santa and stay warm, wherever you are.
