Sew Day #14


Another productive sew day! I got Cole's Seahawk's quilt
top done - now to get it to Sara to machine quilt for me.
I used 2 Seahawk Superbowl t-shirts and this pattern from Allison Glass for the footballs.  I sewed them out of brown minky... what fun that was :(  but so worth it for our ColeBear :)

I also have made this quilt using Allison's star tutorial... this was my first try at hand quilting, I hand quilted around each star... took forever - but hubby loves it :)

Thanks so much Allison for making and sharing your wonderful patterns!  



Now I only have three more Seahawk's quilts to make and I can get back to sewing on the binding of my bed quilt...

Another 1 1/2 yard quilt finished!


Our neighbor turned 50 and gave a fabulous party!  I made him this quilt - he has a harley...  Chris was so happy to get the quilt - he showed it to everyone - I guess everyone loves  having a special 'blankie'.  I put red minky on the back and that was a big hit from him too :)  Happy Birthday Chris!

So Happy Together 2014 Concert

 Caryn and I went to see the 'So Happy Together' concert, was so much fun!  Great music.  A few of the singers voices aged, but overall - excellent music!
Caryn bought an autographed picture of the Turtles.  We had such good seats - 4th row from the stage - Whoo Hoo!
Caryn took a selfie of us before the concert started.  I had to take off my "Happy Together" t-shirt - was way too hot over my blouse!
It was an Oldie but Goodies crowd at the concert!

What's been happening at our house...


Kaylee picked out a squash plant at the grocers the other day...

You can see the little squash plants :)
She will be responsible for watering it when she is here during the week.  Can't wait to get to eat one!
 My Auntie made me this birdhouse years ago and I have had it hanging up in this tree forever. This year we got lucky and some chickadee's decided to make it there home :)
Here is Momma going inside to feed the babies!  You can hear the baby birds chirping away when she feeds them.

Look who came to visit me this morning!

Boy he wasn't here for long, hubby was able to open a window and take out the screen and he flew out, but what a mess he made.  Poor little guy - was making a scared noise.  I will be using the screen doors for sure now, early in the mornings when all is quiet...
