It was a busy weekend here. Went to a Long Arm get together for my area. Always good food & fun. Several women who quilt for themselves, no customers. Someday I'll have more time to get all of my UFO projects quilted. Oh baby it's cold outside is an understatement right now. Yesterday morning was windy & cold. Today it was 22 when I got up. At least we have sunshine!
The machine is calling. Better get with it. 18 days & counting....................Grandma Sharon

e-mail to be in the drawing. She also posted some pictures from her Thanksgiving with her beautiful family. She's doing the drawing on Monday December 7th once her girls get home from daycare. Check it out. Who knows it might be your lucky day! As you can imagine it's full throttle here. Quilts are flying on & off my machine. Piles of quilts, invoices, bags & then they are gone until the next group is done. I'm hoping to post in the next couple days. See you soon!
24 days & counting..............................Grandma Sharon

This is what happen when Grandma leaves the room to sew for awhile. I was able to successfully transfer him to his crib for a longer nap.
It was a good trip. Lots of sewing projects with Joanna. 4 purses in all & I finished a "Block Party" top I started in 2002. I'll take pictures & post later, double promise. You all have my permission to harass me via e-mail if I don't!
Already on the countdown again. 32 days to go........................Grandma Sharon

This one has the nicest colors. I think she used a Jelly Roll. I used the Daisy Swirl panto on it. This was also a Jelly Roll. Quilted with Splash. I can't get enough batiks!A quick Dad story. I took him to lunch this week. We went to the local "everything" restaurant. It's okay food for me, but he really enjoys it. Our waitress was a very nice young woman. Her hair was very bright, PURPLE. And to top it off she had a lip piercing! I was waiting for Grandpa Lytton to reincarnate and come spewing out of Dad's mouth. Somehow I got lucky &he didn't say a word! Whew! I'm sure he'll say something eventually. I'll be sure & remember to tell you, I know it will be funny! You can't always judge a book by it's cover, right?

Deloa Jones uses a lot stencils. The picture below is my combination of 2 stencils(her assignment before we could leave class). She would put this over an entire block.
I hope you can see the quilted peacock in this picture. I hope you are all having a good week. I am a turbo quilter this week. 4 more sleeps to go & I'm off to Grandmaland! I'll definitely have to post some pictures from Little Mister's birthday party. Back to work...............Grandma Sharon

This first block is a quilt started by a dear friend, Eva, who was 96 when she passed away. Several of us have been getting together & finishing some of her quilts. I quilted this one & we are going to sell raffle tickets with the money going to a charity in Arlington. More info later.
