A quilt

I finally finished  this quilt  I started back in October. It is made with scraps  I got from sewing club. It has a light blue back ground ( a twin size sheet (I cheated)). It measures 46"x70". It is machine made.

I have been sewing, but life and posting pictures has been troublesome. Blogger is only letting me post 1 picture per post. Need to sit and figure it out. 

  To date I have sewn 27 items for the BH kiddos. And a few shirts for me and a lot of pot holders.  Can't believe I sewn that much with 2017 being a troublesome year.

That's all I have for now.

Take care.

Now what?

Got this bundle of 1/2 yards for Christmas. I cut and sewed them together  and ran out. But not sure how to move on. So far it measures 58" x 66".
I would like it a little bit bigger to fit our queen size bed. 

We have a snow  (ice) day. Roads are icy and on some roads traffic is at a stand still due to the ice. I am staying home and hoping to get some sewing in.

Total number of items I sewed for the kids at BH homeless shelter was 43. Would like to increase that number. Total numbers for our sewing group was 577 items. I also did do a lot of sewing /quilting for myself and family members. So sewing in 2016 was good.

Take care and be safe,

Free hand embordiery

This is free hand embordiery. No pattern, picture, or drawing. It's all done with a needle and thread sewn into a pillow.

Take care,

All size 4's

A little sewing for the BH kiddos was done.   A lot has been going on in life so sewing has been on the back burner. 

 PJ's - Size 4 

                                          PJ's - size 4

                       Leggings & pheasant  top - size 4

Working 2 jobs has taken its toll on me, physically, mentally, emotionally and my health has suffered.  But that will soon end. After Oct. 8th, I won't be working on the weekends. Then hopefully I can relax, recover and have time to sew. Will still have cross country, but that's fun aND with my family.

Hope to have more sewing done soon.

Take care,

Size 4 outfits

Both outfits are  a size  4.


Between my tablet and blogger posting has been frustrating. 

Any how, here is my latest  sewing for the kiddos  at the BH shelter. I have some tops made, but like to take  complete outfits. 

Take care,
