Sewing Day at Our House

I'm feeling grateful for all the ladies that came to our house today to help sew blocks for a quilt top for our Magnolia Sewing Circle.

This vintage feed sack fabric has been on the shelves for years. It was high time to use it up.


Emma was here all the way from Indiana. I learned that she loves to sew quilt and comfort tops for charity. She spends hours and hours in her sewing room most days.

Rosanna and Jolita. Jolita also fix lunch for everyone and cleaned up afterward.

An after school snack of apples with peanut butter and melted chocolate.

Chrystal was one of my piano students many years ago. By request she's brushing up on "I Heard a Sound of Voices..... around the great white throne."

Life Over the Holidays

I'm lagging behind on the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, #OnRingoLake which isn't unusual for me at this stage of the game.

I've even entertained the idea of adding a little zip and zing with the addition of lime green placed sporatically throughout the quilt. What do you think?

The small group around our table for Christmas lunch included Paul's sister Jeanie & Galen, his folks, and Amy & Ashton.

Paul worked on Ashton's hover board ...

... and got it going again.

If only that 300 lb. sow wouldn't have barged her way through between Paul and the gate.

On Ringo Lake and Art Quilt of Lakeland Presbyterian Church

...I have been working on my piece of the Lakeland Presbyterian Church in Flowood, MS. Here is my original picture.

I used a photo filter to get a different effect.

This is my piece of fiber art that I'm ready to quilt.

We also had a butchering day at the farm. I was glad the farm boys did all the work.

Sunrise, On Ringo Lake, Boys, Sunset

Sunrise in the East

This just can't be right for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt #OnRingoLake; but it's fun to play with a layout.

After playing for a while at our house, I took Rusty & Teryn to the field to ride in the tractor with their dad.

Let's make plastic! Cornstarch, water, glycerin, and vinegar. The boys found this DIY on youtube.
