What Alyson Learned While I Was In North Carolina

Alyson pieced this one for our sweet Ava.

 I took her an embroidery machine and this is what she did. She has caught on quick.
This one she had started before I got there and there was a few problems but we ironed them out and this is what she ended up with.
It is sad that I have to leave soon. Have had a lot of fun with all of my kids can't wait to come back and spend more time with them. I am leaving her with the knowledge of how to post so we can enjoy some of her work.

 Did these on my new machine. I just been having fun.

 I pieced this quilt and my mom did it on the sewing machine.
 Mom did these the quick blankets. They are just two pieces of material.

 Here is a diaper bag that I have done. It is all John Deere.
I did these burp rags on my new machine. Needless to say I will be sending all of this off today except the butterflies. Hope everyone has a nice day.

Part of what we have been up too

I did these on my embroidery machine. When Mom was in hospital getting her knee replaced she quilted it. This is for one of my husbands bosses. His wife wanted a lady bug blanket so we put this together.
 Before my husband got sick he wanted me to make this quilt for his boss who is retiring at the end of this month. It took me awhile to do this for we found out he was sick so I did it when I could. I think he would of liked it.
 This is his bosses picture that I have put on the quilt.
This quilt will be signed by the people who are going to be at the retirement party. Well my husband will not be there so I put his picture on the back of the quilt. He and his boss were really close. I sure hope that Rex likes his quilt. I will find out on the 31st of August.
Well in a day or two I will post more of what we have done.

Sorry for not posting

  Sorry that I have not been posting lately. We have not had a good year. Most of you don't know this so here it is. Last year on June 26 my husband Milo and I were told that he had stage 3 lung cancer. Well he had done the chemo and the radiation. We thought that he was beating it. Than just as he finished with chemo and radiation it had traveled to his brain. So January I started taking him to work everyday.  But the sad part about is he lost in the fight on May 8, 2013. It has been hard but we are making it. I wish that anybody else that has cancer will beat it. I know that my husband tried hard.
  Well we have done a few projects and finishing up a few so in the next couple of days I will be posting them. I will be doing only a couple at a time. So please come back and see what we have done. So until next time take care and my God Bless you.

What's new

 The two above quilts we have finished. It took awhile to do. But we have been busy with of lot of personal stuff. So when we get a chance we try to finish old projects.
This baby blanket and bumper pad we made for a customer. It was kind of fun to do. We plan on doing more of them in the near future. Once we get our house in order again. Hopefully I can get so motivation out of myself this year. But it hasn't been a good start. But we shall move on forward.

Quilts Mom and I have done

 Mom did this quilt. It is a shelf binding quilt. Took her about 15 minutes to do it, that includes cutting it out.
 I pieces this quilt sometime ago and Mom just recently quilted it on the machine.
This quilt was done the same way. If we keep this up we will have a stash of quilts.
