Here is my current quilt top

I am working on this one for our oldest boy, Danny. I still have a couple borders to add, but I can't decide the width I want. I am considering a 2 1/2 black and a 4 1/2 matching red.. And of course it needs a back. I'm thinking of another Razorback fabric, but need another With the fabric being $10 a yard and I'll need 6 yards..

Aren't y'all glad Handmade is so

It's almost time

Giveaway entry deadline is just a week away., February 26th.  Don't miss out.  Go to the Giveaway tab and comment to enter...

My Giveaway Contributions

Sorry I didn't make it to quilting last night.  I'll bring my contributions to the giveaway next Tuesday.  (2 Fat Quarters, One 9" X 44" quarter yard, and a quilt book.)  The "Hobo Quilts" book is not only a pattern book for symbols/signs that the Hobo's used from the 1880s to the 1940s, it also contains photos and brief stories told by those who either rode the rails or had other experiences with them.  Very interesting bit of American history.   My mom and one of her brothers and his wife rode as "hobos" once trying to go see her dad.  They started out on Hwy 71 between Mena and Ft. Smith but couldn't catch a car ride and wound up catching a train.  I have a home-made book put together by my sister.  It is titled "Your Daddy and Me - The Early Years".   Mom's hobo story is included in this book.  Here's an piece of the story:  "Finally , about three in the afternoon, the train stopped again.  Max asked me if I had any money left and I told him I had a dollar, and he said for me and Irene to go find some water, and he took the dollar and went to get some bread and bologna.  We found a fruit jar in a garbage pail and grabbed it and ran on down the road 'til we saw a house with a well.  We drew up a bucket of water to wash out the jar and started to draw up another'n when a woman came out and yelled at us to get away from her well.  It scared us, but we got another bucket anyway and filled our jar and ran back to the freight train."   I think this took place around 1938.   Mom related all the stories to my sister - most of them during a bus trip to New England to see the fall foliage.

5 Miniatures Completed So Far

I've managed to complete 5 of my UFO miniature quilts so far - but I've also started 2 new ones!  And....there are others still waiting to be completed.    The Churn Dash is 7" X 9".  The one with the little cottage is 11" square.  The smallest one is a 4-patch strippy.   I love miniature quilts!

Our Very First Giveaway!

Go to the Giveaways tab and enter.

Post #100

Many of you will be gathering in front of a television to watch the Super Bowl.  Our church and community will gather at the gym/auditorium for a chili cook off and watch party.  I personally don't care one way or another.  I sleep well to television sports, therefore I will be staying home.  The hubby is going but since my back has been out. I will stay on my heating pad in the recliner.  I will just have to skip sitting on a cafeteria table or school chair for hours.

I would love to sew but no bending for me.  I have some cutting to do but again my desk is just too short to cut on without bending.  I might try using the ironing board since it is adjustable height.   Hum, I will have to think on that.

I hope you all enjoy your Sunday afternoon, the ball game, sewing, or whatever your day holds.
