Well My neighbor and good friend gave me this neat item! I think it would look great appliqued onto a towel  I love it. The little oblong thing is for a thimble and it needs to be finished yet. needs a tassel and draw string.

I have been so hot the past couple days. The humidity is terrible. I have not sewn on the machine. I have been trying to learn crochet. I am using the fine thread like for tatting size 8 cotton Perle. The needle hook size is to be a size 14. That is like smaller then the head on a straight pin. I am doing it. I have to practice and be able to count my chains and etc. so it will take me some time But I am determined to get it.I saw a thimble holder on the Internet that was crocheted and wanted one .LOL I want everything . If I get it made I will for sure post a picture of it.   Am very tired from the heat so will retire for tonight and check in tomorrow with you all  see you then

A done Runner

This is cool and I am pleased with the end results. This had sit around for about a year. I decided to finish it. It was pretty easy over all. From the magazine Quilts and More summer 2008. I need to get busy on a few other things which need to be completed real soon. I am trying my hand at some embroidery and finding I need practice to get the stitches even. that will come with time and by doing. I will share the picture of the top now and then one more of my cat Buttons taken the day before she passed away.

So Sad

My Ms Buttons had to be put to sleep. She was so miserable and there was not anything we could to make it any easier for her. So may she rest in Peace now!! I will truely miss her as she was my pal. Slept at the foot of my bed every night my calf was her pillow. and parked herself at my feet most every eveneing. Okay I need to greive some so will sign off and come back in a couple days. Thanks everybod for all the well wished for her. they were helpful to me for sure


A tada for me

I have been sewing and quilting for the Downy Quilt for Kids. I have completed the one they sent to me. I just need to wash it and sew the label on it then mail it off to the place. I like the bright colors and I sure hope the person who receives mine likes it. It was a fun one to sew and quilt.
Now I have to take my Cat Buttons to the vet. She is is losing weight way to fast and she is loosing her appetite now. I Hope they can find out her trouble and it can be fixed. She is a very good cat and a great pal. Take care I will let you know what the Dr says about my kitty.
