Saturday Sewing

 
Remember this quilt? I am restoring it and then quilting it...
I didn't realize how BIG this quilt was...it is folded in half in this picture!
and because of work, I haven't been able to work on it too much...
Here's how it's been going.

 
I wasn't sure how to quilt it, but I love the look so far.
I am definitely not an expert...
Thank goodness this is for a family member that
loves the quilt, just wants to be able to use it,
and loves me...
so, I figure it's a win-win...
I will just take my time and PRAY!




Happy Saturday all!

Pay It Forward....from Down Under...



Isn't it fun to see something like this in your mailbox...
and then open it to find these????




Last year, I was invited by Crafty Pug to join a little
fun she was doing called Pay It Forward...
So, the rules were get three people to agree
to have you make them something and then
they have to get three more people to let them make something...
You get the idea...
Anyway, you had a year to make it and then send it off...



Isn't this just YUMMY!
She made me this really AMAZING table runner -
I wish you could REALLY see the colors...
and then she added even more fabric and thread!!!!
But that wasn't all...
She even included a cute little pin cushion out of the
same material from the table runner!!!





IT IS LOVELY...and will make a very nice
addition to my dining room this fall...
and I love that it came from you...
Thank you so much!

Pictures of the week...

Just a few snapshots of the last couple of weeks...

My view from the tower every morning at work...and my floor is six more above this one...

The paint color for the ranch...

My sweet man's view from the plane on his way to California...That is smoke from all the TX wildfires...

This was my view driving in everyday last week...and that's NOT fog...


Sometimes craft time spills into my real job...




This is a gift we give to clients when we close a deal...with a little touch from me...

My middle girl Kait...and one of my soon-to-be GBs...

She's teaching him Scrabble...

Another block for sweet man's quilt...from Sunni....Didn't she do GREAT???

A block made by me for one of my Let's Bee partners...
And for another Let's Bee partner...This was a hard one...


A couple of blocks for  Joan...


Love from my hard working man...

You remember this one....

It's well on it's way ...

after a few little repairs and a cleaning...

To becoming a warm and inviting place to be under again...

Yes...that is a Christmas block...

and they are for Sunni....

I hope she likes them...I sure did!

And another NEW fire tonight on the horizon...

Please Lord, send us rain...

and finally, tonight's close-up...a little Love time with my little God Son...Zane...

Finally...a quick run in...

Hello all...Haven't forgotten you...
so much going on here in Texas.

Just outside of Houston for the last two weeks we have had wildfires.
Many of our friends and hunting buddies along with their families have lost their homes.

Our ranch as of this posting -  is still in the clear, but we will need to go this weekend and
feed our livestock and check on things...

If you have time today, please say a prayer or two for those who have lost everything...there
seems to be a lot of people out there these days in this predicament...not just in Texas but all
across the East... Our hearts are with you too.

I have found some time to sew and I will post some more tonight w/ photos...

Hope all of you are doing well.
Just wanted to pop in and tell you I miss you.

Hugs,
Lana
