Have a Blessed Memorial Day!!


I love this day!!  I think it is one of my favorite holidays!!  I love going to the Cemetery and placing my little Cemetery pots on my Grandparents' graves along with some Veterans who don't have any flowers on their grave.  Plus the day is glorious!!

 

Please remember your ancestors who went before you and paved the way for our lives and for those soldiers, policemen and women, firefighters and all the selfless folks that gave (and still give) their lives that we might live free and relatively safe!!

God Bless America!!

A Birthday Present Completed!!

Beginning about a year and a half ago, my friend Becky and I helped another friend learn how to quilt!!  It all took so long because Gina has 7 kids and is very, very busy!!  Well, we finally got it quilted last week and Becky got the binding on Saturday night so she could take it over to Gina for her birthday yesterday!!  Becky it brought it over to show me before she took it over to Gina!!

This is Becky - what a cutie she is!!
A friend embroidered the label!

What a fun collaboration and such a great, happy quilt!!

More Second Row Flowers!!

Ok, so it seems like all the "sewing" time I have these days is at night when we sit down to watch baseball or an old movie.  As such, I have 2 more flowers completed ~

Flower, Lynn Peters, April 2015 - Australia.
Second Row, Melody D, July, 2015 - Australia
Flower, Kathie Laposata, December, 2012 - Allentown, PA
Second Row, Janet Rushant, March 2016 - Canada
And, since this is just about all the sewing I am doing right now, I think it will get old to see these post after post, so if you are interested in following my progress on these, there is a page at the top that says Second Row Flowers.  They will be in there and on the side will be a picture of my latest one!!

Thanks for visiting!!

This is so much fun!!

A friend and his son came over this evening to show us the little drone that he had received as a birthday gift from his wife!!  It was the coooooolest thing!!  It has the capability of going up 1000 feet but legally it can only go up 400 feet, so Scott took it up the 400 feet and took these pics!!



Now ya know where I live!!  Hope your weekend is going well!!
