Oklahoma Tornado Relief...Moore Love...


 
 
 
This morning I was reading through my little blog list,
 
and on Cluck Cluck Sew's blog she mentioned
the efforts underway to help out in the
tornado ravaged areas of Moore Oklahoma.
This cause is dear to us as my daughter
and her family are in Stillwater, O.K.
Thankfully they were not affected, but if they had been
I would have been greatly comforted to know my fellow
quilty bloggers were in our corner...
Here's how you can help.
 
 
The Oklahoma City Modern Quilt Guild is taking quilt donations
for those affected by the tornados.
 
Please  visit their website for more info
if you have any quilts you’d like to send!
 
 
Have a great Thursday Everyone!

29 years and counting...

 
I have a sweet friend in East Texas...
She and I have known each other since we were 19 yrs young.
She is as bright as sunshine.

 
The mama of three of her own
 but make no mistake -
She has mama'd a lot more...

 
Sew...I am making her some love for her birthday this year...
and sending it all the way from my hometown of
Sugar Land.

 
 
In the past 29 years...
We have welcomed each other's little babies,
weathered profound losses,
and cared for aging parents.
but we have also...
 
ROCKED 
swimsuits in her backyard
and shocked pizza delivery guys too!
(shhhh....don't tell!)
 
It sure has gone by fast.
and now...
 
GRANDBABIES!!!!
(She has 8 9 no less!...I think...?)
 
I could never tell you here what she has meant to me.
But she knows.



Sew...each piece is enveloped in memories
and my stitches are wrapped in prayer
for 29 MORE years
with my sweet friend...
 


 
Now, until it arrives...
I hope you aren't sitting on too many....
 
hehehehe


 
I love you Carrie.
Happy Birthday!

A little fabric gardening...

 Finding time to actually blog these days has become difficult, but it's because every free non-family moment I have i try to spend in the studio...
When you have small children or grand children in your home, work full-time, have a ranch to work on the weekend, the time is just gone...

So...late night sewing is my routine now...and I really don't mind...but my little blog has suffered for sure...i try to make up for it over on  Instagram...it's instant gratification... I hope you will come see me here in between your visits here at the blog...

Moving on....

This was a little free sewing I started this week. I love Sweetwater fabric so...

What started out as just three strips of fabric sewn together in blocks has turned into this...


I had some rearranging to do, but I was liking how this  little flower was turning out...



I did have a finish...this was the product of some late night sewing...remember?








Well, that is it for today...but I will be back this week! What are you all working on these days?
