Pics of the quilts i made for the girls

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Just wanted to show the quilts that I made for my 2 daughters and daughter in law for Christmas. The pictures didn't turn out to good though. Sometimes this camera has a mind of its own.

My oldest daughter is a Pittsburgh steelers fan so i made this one for her

This is my youngest daughters rag quilt. It has butterflys on it.

And this is the quilt that i made for my DIL. It's homespun and the picture looks lighter than it is.

They are all rag quilts. I really enjoy making these.
Have a wonderful day

And now they are calling for ice on Christmas morning. I'm going to my sons house for dinner around 1. and all the kids will be there, I hope they can make it.

Enjoy your next few days with family and friends.

What a day

Well got up really early this morning and went in and started working on my last Christmas gift. Working a little and was getting a little chillie so went in and checked the thermostat and it said 66. So i turned up the heat and it still felt cold. Went over and put my hand by the grate and cold air. The furnace wasn't working. Lovely. Just had the new furnace put in 2 years ago. Called them and they said they would be out between 12 and 5. Getting colder in here. Finally he showed up around 2:30. He's been here an hour and its still not fixed. Hopefully soon.

Enjoy your day. I know i will when it gets warmer in here.

Here's my finished baby rag quilt

Went to the baby shower on Sunday and my niece had a wonderful time. Here is the quilt i made for her. My first rag quilt was a bear from a pattern. This is my second rag quilt and this one was made from squares.

The top pictures are the front. And the bottom 2 pictures are the back. I embroidered the last square.
My niece really loved it. Alot of clipping and my hand hurt so bad. They are 3" squares so it took alot of them to make it. I have been so busy lately working on Christmas gifts.

It's Snowing

It's snowing...Been doing it since early this morning. The roads are to warm so its not laying on them but it is in the grass. Suppose to do it all day...Well i don't have to go anywhere today so that ok. LOL Not much of a snow and winter person.

I was up til 2 this morning clipping that rag quilt. My hand hurts so bad. I used all flannel so that is 3 layers of it. And i should of made it with bigger squares. I used 4" squares so that's alot of clipping. It's in the washer for the second time, then into the dryer again. I'll get a pic of it sometime today and post it. I have been working on it all week. The baby shower is tomorrow.

Back to cleaning and washing clothes. Talk later

Have a wonderful Saturday

What was i thinking!!!!

I don't know what i was thinking but i started working on organizing my craft room, right before Thanksgiving. Like there isn't enough to do to get ready for that. So much stuff in that room Oh my. And too much fabric and no where to put it. And the rooms not that big. I wanted to set up something so that i can do my shipping in there to because i am dragging everything into the dining room to work on that and there it lays...I don't mind getting things out but i don't know what happens to my mind when its time to put it back. Sometimes i wish i could be a genie and make it all nice with just a nod of the head. LOL I am so tired. And don't feel like doing it anymore.
How do you arrange your fabric supply??? And do you do your shipping at the same place???? Hubby when in there a while ago and just shook his head...LOL And it's all in the hall way waiting to go back in that room. Starting to see the floor now. Well guess i'd better get back to work.
Have a wonderful Sunday!!! One good thing the sun is shinning.

Have a question ....Need some help

Good Morning!!!! It's raining here and dreary. Guess it's better than snow. So on with my question. I was thinking of doing some international selling on ebay but not sure where to go to get the best info on it. Questions on how and what i need to fill out and everything else there is to know. LOL

Its like jumping in the ocean for the first time. A lot to learn. I have been working on more things to list and that takes time.

Had to go with hubby to the hospital yesterday morning to have a pic line put in his neck for IV antibiotics to try to get rid of this on going ear infection that he has had for years now. It doesn't hurt but it drains. And he has a hole in his ear drum and they can't fix it until the infection is gone. And with all his past medical problems his veins are shot and they can't get an IV in them. And we had to be there at 6 am. and then dialysis at 12 then back to the hospital for IV antibiotic at 3;30. He has to go to the hospital everyday for 2 weeks to get the medicine. I asked them about Thanksgiving day and she said we are open. And we are having dinner at my house with our family so i had them call the doctor and see about not coming that day and he said that would be fine. I sure hope this works this time. They have tried everything even eye drop antibiotics in his ear. And he can't hear out of his one ear and now this one his hearing is really bad and i can't take the tv up that load much more. LOL So hopefully this works. Need some prayers that it works this time and he can get it fixed. Well guess I'd better stop ramblin and get to work on something.
One more thing. I was working on a crow last night and it was on the table and my BIL stopped by and said you making parrots. And i said no its a crow and he said who would want a crow. I laughed and said that's the prim look.
Oh well

Have a wonderful day

Are there any Dialysis Patients out there

My husband is on dialysis. He's been doing it for almost 2 years now, 3 days a week. He's been having so much problems with cramping lately. His hands mostly and also in his neck. His neck mussels cramp up so bad some times he can hardly breath. He wanted to see if anyone has the same problem with the cramping and what he could do about it. I think he is going to see about getting a kidney transplant. His brother is giving him one of his if it is a match. So now the long journey will start.

We know all about transplants. To begin with he has type 1 diabetes. He's had it since he was 14. In 1997 he had a pancreas transplant and was no longer a diabetic. He loved it. It lasted for 5 years and then he got Cryptoccocal Meningitis from bird droppings. Crazy huh!!! They thought he was going to die. He was in the hospital for almost a year. 4 months at the hospital were we live then 4 months at a hospital in Baltimore MD and then rehab hospital here for almost another 4 months. That was a longggggggggg year.. Well they had to take him off the immunosuppresent medicines or he would of died. His weight went down to 88 pounds. They had to give him some very bad antibiotics that really messed up his kidneys and they went down hill after that .It was horrible. Well after going off the medicines he lost his new pancreas. So he's back to being a diabetic. Before all of this he was taking 4 shots a day of insulin and then went on an insulin pump. Which he has now. And after all that he wants to go through another transplant. It scares me to death but i guess if that's what he wants I'll stand beside him. He's had so many health problems.

Two years ago on Superbowl Sunday he had a pulmonary embolism. A blood clot that went to his lung and his heart stopped 6 times. They had to use the paddles on him each time. He was flown to Washington and our heart doctor here saved his life. He's had a silent heart attach and has to stints in his heart. He's a walking miracle.

Thanks for listening

What a beautiful weeked, Scarecrows and cow patty bingo

This weekend was so beautiful. No rain like they first thought. And warmer temps. So Saturday my daughter and granddaughter and grandson spent the weekend. We went to the Harvest Hoedown. Took some pics i thought i would share. This is a picture of them making scarecrows. My daughter is the girl in the red shirt on the left front corner with her daughter in the purple shirt beside her. My grandson is the boy in the middle of the picture with the blonde hair.

Here they are with my grandson's scarecrow

From left to right. My granddaughter, grandsons scarecrow, grandson, granddaughters scarecrow, the little scare crow hubby made then my hubby John.

Then they had a purple cow bingo. Yep spray painted cows. You buy a square for 5.00. First prize was $250.00 second prize was $750.00 and third prize was $1000.00. So what it is the first cow to poop in a spot you win the first prize, and so on. We waited for an hour and none of them did anything so we left. But they call you if you win. And i didn't get a call so , well that's my luck.

We had alot of fun . The kids did to.

My grandson is my oldest daughters son.
Thanks for looking
