Helping Hands and Muscles

I have been helping my brother with a big awning job.  The material is canvas on one side and vinyl on the other.  The awning is 5 X 10 feet.  This material is HEAVY!  It really helped to have extra hands to lift while sewing and folding for sewing.  10 The rib supports have windows in the middle so that a light strip can be inserted. Very nice.  This job is finished In time for the long weekend.

Stitching and enjoying...

I am progressing on my chicks cross stitch piece.  I think it will be done before I go home on Friday.

I have been assisting my brother in his nautical canvas sewing.  He is so creative.  The two pictures are from the other day when we traveled up river to the next marina to do a repair job on a canvas boat cover.  Four hands were definitely better!

Family etc

My Brothers memorial yesterday went well, good service and the BBQ afterwards turned out fabulous.  There was no power due to the tornadoes that came through earlier in the week.  There was a big fire place so a fire was built and maintained.  We were toasty warm.

I am staying with my youngest brother John on his boat which is in a slip.  Love it.  Sleeping on a boat is the fabulous.  You are rocked to sleep every night.

Here are some pictures.  It a work in progress as well as a place for him to sew canvas work for other boats.




I am working on this cross stitch piece of cute chicks.🐸🐸🐸

Making a mess

Yesterday I started tackling a new bag of miscellaneous fabric that was donated to me.  I have a new chisel die.  I ironed, cut and got quite a few sewn.  I'm thinking I will attach them end to end and see what happens.

That won't happen for a week as I'm am off to New York for my brothers memorial and to spend time with the other two brothers.

A Morning with the Busy Bee Quilt Guild

I spent the morning with members of the Busy Bee Quilt Guild, Fountain Inn, SC.  They put on a fabulous brunch spread.  Everything was delicious.

They are the nicest group, they even have men quilters.  The meeting progressed in a very orderly manner and soon it was time for me to speak and show my quilts.

Thank you Busy Bee Quilters for having me show my love of quilts.  This is the flyer that was circulated before the meeting.


I'll be back in June to teach a workshop.  🐸🐸🐸

Quilting Done

I took the quilt off the frame and sewed on the additional backing needed.  It didn't take long at all to resume and finish the quilting.  Done and looking good.

A sneak peak of the next top.  It has a lot to do with bags of 3.5 inch squares and bags of 3.5 inch four patches.  I'm so guilty of blocks in bags!!!!  They have to get used up soon before they may move me out.🐸🐸🐸
