In Over My Head and I was ONLY cleaning out the Kitchen

Pin It
I needed to get out of my sewing room and
All.... I did was decide to put our Christmas dishes away. 


And look what it turned into, a HUGE mess. I removed everything, 
wiped out, cleaned the window, fan and light and did the floor !

All the kitchen cleaned out

Hours later, I love it and VERY happy I did it. 
Next, Maybe???My sewing room !  Probably not  !

Quilt Order Already in For Christmas 2012

Pin It
When you are 6 years old and your older brother received a new quilt
 for Christmas (2011) 
and you didn't ! 
YOU understand the whole idea of 
ASKING  Grandma EARLY ! ! 

Simple Quilt using Squares

On our trip in January, I was asked if he could have a new quilt for Christmas. 
He had no colors, no size, just a quilt and after some talking I found out the reason ! 

"With My Name on IT?"
Simple Quilt using Squares made into a Quilt

I found the why......I put Grand #1's name of the back of his new quilt
And Grand #2 likes it and needs a quilt with his name on it too ! 

Here's his new quilt top ! !  Machine pieced and I'm going to do 2 layers of batting 
and tie it, just like brothers. Grandma's learning ! 

The ONLY thing is this pattern is not going to be a pattern book, 
like brothers -  HERE 

The question, "Did Grandma learn anything?"
