Pictureless Turkey Day greetings

Thanksgiving is winding down. I had some family over some are missing due to  health reasons and others not up to so much talking. But for those who came we enjoyed the afternoon and good food. We did miss the guys and even some of the grand kids are out of state so felt  a bit empty.
The dishes are all done and put away. yay!! that helps . my hands are feeling the effects of the water and dish soap splitting  on the edges of the nails boy they hurt!

 Hope you all enjoyed the  day and had a some memories made. The weather has been good for us too.  take care all and enjoy your  shopping if you do that  I prefer to stay home  but will venture to JA's tomorrow morning for a couple things!
Tata for now  Patty

 Hello and what an event it was. I was able to attend a viewing of this in Sullivan MO\..Was with a group from all over the USA and one from the UK. it was so cool and emotional as well. I have some pics that were taken through a telescope lens so not the best. but a person in the group made a video of it from start to ending  that was so exciting to see. Well I will upload them to my main computer then post them here for you to see, sorry for now  I will be back with the pics and a link to the video he took.

It came out super nice It is a quilt along by Lori Holt of Bee In My Bonnet. Mine is yet to be s finished this fall I am hoping. The second quilt I finished up today is my French Roses using Kate Spain fabrics.. I absolutely love it! 
I also have two others that need to be bound One is a heart quilt and the other is my African tile floor. So pretty and exciting really.  here is some pictures of the quilts that I  spoke of.

did some sewing this evening. wanted to change up a tad so I made some throw pillows for my TV room. I want to make a few more but for the bedroom and maybe the guest room have to see  what kind of fabric I have on hand . I also bought some new chairs  they are used  and new to me. they are super comfortable and just right for me. 
 I got these for a real good price and hauled them back with me from NC last week.
I was there visiting my 2 sisters in Weaverville. what a great time I had .
Got to visit their new quilt shop  two days in a row a really nice shop  .Called  Five Little monkeys in downtown Weaverville. If in the area worth the detour or stop! Pay them a visit you will be in awe of their place

until next time

Need to get Back on Track

Morning and please bare with me  until I can get back on schedule. I love to read the blogs still and yes Instagram  and Pinterest have taken a lot  away from the blogland. I will stay here a while longer.

I have lots of things I need to finish  and some need to be quilted. I just enjoy the process of making the quilts. Choosing colors and textures and planning it all out to the  quilting and the finale binding and labels.
I started this journey back in September of 1977 with my sister Billie. We took a class in Southgate MI. at the local high school. I have my first block  I will dig it out and post a photo of it. mind you I did not choose the color or fabrics. It was what I was given.  My sister and I  did sew clothes in the beginning but I have stayed with the quilt making .It is a true passion I guess. I was 33 years of age when I began this  trip! I have learned so much and it excites me  yet. Love to watch it all come together.  Figure out the problems and draft up sizes and etc. So this is a great hobby for me.  I know my hubby is happy for me  but he does not  get too thrilled over the new quilts LOL You know most say seen one quilt you seen them all. Not true!! They are all different even when using the same pattern and the same fabrics, not the same  but similar. I am hoping to get some finishes this year! I will post pics as they are finished   should be a fun year. I did do some things at the end of this past year. I have some photos  I will put on here sometime soon.  In the meantime  enjoy your day and get in some sewing time or crafting whatever your hobby is.
Until next time
