a couple Pictures

These photos of Mommy while PG were done by a studio. I think they are beautiful. Very tastefully done.But the most beautiful one is the Grand daughter Arsema. She is so sweet. I will be going to visit her  soon . Want to hold her and love on her. Hope she is content with me.

Was a cooking day for me . I just came out of the kitchen. Had made some yummy Sea Shell macaroni salad and then the fresh strawberry pie. We had some good chili beans in the freezer  so will have them too. not sure on the meat yet. Might be some Black Forest ham sliced.
 I am going to get a shower next then sew for a little while and then have some of the good eats.

A New Tip or 2

Had a guild meeting on Monday evening. Mary Lou Nuzum was our speaker. She gave us tip  on our pressing and how you tend to burn your finger sometimes while doing that. Well there is a glove out that beauticians use  for when they curl hair or straighten it. It is made from a special fabric  to resist heat. I will post a photo of it. Another use for this Glove is when you are preparing the pieces for Applique if you use the starch method! Great

I bought mine at the local beauty  supply house. Called Sally's. I have yet another tip for you I get those bags you can put your wet umbrella in at the stores  and then  I store my wonder under in it. I believe it also will fit a bolt of fabric in it. So That is how I store my fusible web stuff. Pick yourself up an extra one next time you go to the grocery or Wal Mart  and use it.

I am Here

I am here been  busy and now waiting to hear of the new Grand daughter. DIL and son took her to the hospital to have the labor induced this afternoon. I am sure my Hiwot is a bit scared. I know how scared I was . My mom was in another state and I was alone. Hubby was there but then they did not allow any one in the room it was on a military base. I just hated to be there by myself in that room. So I have been busy at the machine and  doing some daily chores around the house. Shopping to by the way.
Here is a couple things I have been sewing on.
I had been wanting to try the new Twister Rule  and this is what I made it the one they call "Lil Twister". I call my item  Orange punch I loved the orange border fabric and therefore used the orange to make pinwheels with the twister.  I love that twister rule. I will be back tomorrow or later on today and post more  waiting on the baby  and am going to catch some sleep while I wait for her arrival!!.
The quilt below still needs one more border sewn on. Maybe tomorrow. This is called Kesteria from the Quilt Bus we site. Our guild got permission to use it for a BOM and I like the overall look of it.  The sample was done in red and green . Niters now  chat more later on today!!!
