These very graceful FIFTY - ish Years are descending . . .

Cause some of my evenings to run sooooooo slowly.....  that it suits me and my cup of tea... to just iron on the Cathedral window blocks.....

At this rate.... I could probably set up a quiltin' frame and hand stitch while relaxing and watching a little Criminal Mind-less-ness on TV, and then pitch the early bedtime hour that hits me hard   :))))

I'm happy in Life....!!!

This blogging life of mine . . .  now here's another sleeping angel (a bit lazy with me around - SINCE daddy and Papa are so tough on him).   A part of my anticipated weekend adventure with grandson !!!

Thinkin of Joining an Online group of star-girls.....

Then I'm impressed with this Tim and Alex BOM using almost my same 9-patch set on point... with STARS that Have another 9-patch hidden within!!! really neat!!

Fabric, Family ++ and more FABRIC

but, remember I've not put the binding on it....


my baby is GRAND!!!! (grand-baby!!)

And finally, I browsed and was really impressed with this military fabric... as my son and daughter are veterans....

Missing Final Edge-Borders on my quilts

I should call them my Crye quilts..... as good old Bill Crye worked his magic on the Long Arm machine, paid up and handed them back to me....   and they side folded ever so nicely....

A Weekend Quiltin' Excursion

What's happenin . . .!!!   ???
Lordy, lordy... it is hot in Oklahoma!  I am pleased to think back over a weekend trip to Fayetteville AR (Brother's house) wherein my husband hitched a couple of guys onto his boat that was hitched onto our Jeep... so what am I to do???

I towed along my Pfaff..... my brother set up dinner, snacks, TV, talk time, and a roomy card table for me.  I packed 4-5 plastic totes of fabric.... books, tools of the trade... and a project in progress!   Cathedral Windows to cut (bought 7 yards of muslim) to fold, to iron into exact-sized squares....  and hand stitched the entire 3-hr drive to and from!

NOW.... smile.... this was my very own personal retreat!!!

Connected to my quiltin !

All that I am today is connected to a sometimes blurried past; but there is an undeniable linkage in the needlework, art and poetry of black women workers throughout American society.
