Hi friends!
I don't like the stitch i used to make the steering wheel and brake!
But it was all i could find right off.
It's crooked!
I looked for something to make the smoke stack but don't have any silver . Settled on light blue.
I haven't sewed it down yet  . I will be looking !
I have tubs of fabric i haven't gone through yet.
We ran to Rome this morning to get hubby a new toy. Since we got plastic siding he needed some thing to clean it.
He used a coupon and a cash  gift card and got it for half price.
He is putting it together right now. Most likely he will wait until next week to start.
Have a great weekend

John Deer, Dawson's quilt

Hi friends!
I got the yellow hub caps sewed down!
I was going to use white but hubby said no! Use yellow for John Deer.
I sewed around the steering wheel and other things for the controls. Next is a smoke stack and i wanted to put a stripe on it but i will have to cheek to see where it goes.
Hope our granddaughter likes it!
But she is into john deer to so i think she will.
Have a good one

I finished sewing down both ends!
Sewed the turkey body on !
Then i cut out the turkeys body!
We had a quit week end , though about going to the kids family reunion but Hubby got up with his back all out of shape, he smelled of Salonpas all day.. Though he would go to see Dr. Jeff today but he woke up pain free this morning.
He hates to go to the DR!

Jessica's Table Topper

Hi friends!
Remember last Friday i thought this was to light, well i cut some more.
I like this much better.
I took out the real light ones!
I just pinned them on for now and went to work on the other end.
The one on the other end will be just the same as this .
I started sewing them together but noticed it was getting late and had to stop.
Dishes have to be washed!!!

Jessica's Table runner

Hi friends!!
I have been working on Jessica's Table topper for Thanksgiving.
I added on the fourteens inch pieces for my Turkey and started cutting feathers.
I cut my finger cutting these out so stopped right there.
I haven't pinned them down because they may be a little to light!
Maybe i will make up my mind and get some work done on it by Monday.
Have a good weekend

Delivered the Artic Star

Hi friends!
I delivered the Artic Star  quilt to my friend of many years, Sylvia. That's Tonia helping her hold it.
She had been married for  around 60 something years and lost her hubby a while back.
We worked together before my 46 year old son was born.

I think she liked it.
It makes me feel good to give something to the people i love to comfort them.

Hi friends!
I have started two things that i want to finish on here before my next quilt. The first one is a turkey table runner for my Sweet Jessica.
She loved the one i made last year so i started this and got this far.
Just had done a few and put it back but my pile of things were taking over my table.
Yesterday i took it to this stage.
Next step is to make the Dresden Turkey tails!
I started this for my sweet sister in law but thought , she wouldn't need it before Christmas so it"s now time to finish's it.
This is all i had done on it!
I did sew two together to show a good friend how it was joined.
It's time to finish up the UFO's
Have a good one

Hi friends!
It's on the couch!
I used the red for the binding because i had enough left of it!
I am going to try a different label this time one, the is Tri-angle shaped that you sew into the corner of the binding on your  quilt. If i like it and i may do it that way from on. Should be through with that by Wednesday i hope.
I don't have a whole lot of time where i just sit on the couch and hand stitch.
Since it's labor day i think i will clean up my sewing room!
It needs it bad!
Every fabric i use i just toss to the other end of my table so i have a mountain.
I need another book case to fill up but don't have room for one.
Have a good Labor day

Hi friends!
I spent some time working on my Artic Star quilt yesterday. Another few hours and i should be finished  with that.
Then it will be find some fabric to bind it with.
That should be easy since i didn't have a lot of either fabric left.
I started Across the top and down one side , now i am restarting at the top and coming down.
It's not queen sized but it's lots of quilt to get through there, i should have rolled it but i just squished .
If i build a sewing machine i would fix it so your could use a spool of thread going to the bottom. It would be so much easier..
Have a great weekend
