Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I've got a Chamber of Commerce Arts and Crafts Fair to work tomorrow, then a trip to the hospital to see Val. Sunday is church day and we've got a lot to be thankful for with the great news on Val today. It's like Christmas around here. My daughter loves her too and started crying when she heard the news. Tears of joy really rock.

Worked on my pinwheels tonight and desided they are just too busy next to each other....so.. stash busting, I found some and added borders....I like it much better now. I'm glad this was just made out of fq's. It's a great way to practice and learn about values. I like pinwheels a lot too.
Hope everyone has a great Sunday. Sundays are super busy here. Church in the morning, then dinner with friends, then my favorite time....Sunday afternoon nap....and back to church for Sunday night service. I know...I do go to church a lot. Three times a week. I love my church family and the time we spend in worship. It's changed my life in a lot of ways. It just works for my family. So, I'm off to bed soon, although, the movie Saharra is on, and I sure hate to miss the chance to see so much of Matthew McCuddly. I do own the movie though, so I guess I can let this one on tv go. LOL!

I was sooooo domestic yesterday. I even made homemade, and by homemade I mean bread machine, raisin oat bread. It's a pretty heavy bread, but my daughter loves it for breakfast and it was still warm in the machine this morning. Sometimes it takes so little to make 'em happy. Garry does not eat bread. He just doesn't care for most breads. The one bread he does like is Johnny Cake...ya know...sweet cornbread. I also make a single layer white cake, chocolate frosting of course. I have the bread machine going again today, making some dough for rolls for dinner tonight. Company coming....fried chicken, mashed taters, gravy, salad and a veggie...undecided what veggie..... and speaking of weight gain....ahahhahhahaaaa...... Ok...I was raised by southern people. Frying is what I learned, but actually I cheat. I fry it in good oil just until it's "purty" and then I move it to baking racks and bake it till it's done. Most of the grease bakes out into the pan and then I don't feel quite so bad about fixing it. And...I don't do it often. Well....time for some sewing...a few more pinwheels and then the math part......
Have a fabulous Friday....Yipppeeeee......Friday!!!!!!!!

Thanks for all the suggestions on the black and white fabrics. I agree with you all. Oh darn, (insert sarcasm here), that means more fabric shopping. Will it never end? Hahahahahhaaa
I'm playing with some fat quarters I have. I have a couple hundred now. Is that a lot? I really don't know if it is or not. Anyway, I want to do some pinwheels and rotate them with a nine patch, but the math has got my head all warped now. And I'm good at math. I'll figure it out, but it's kinda messing with my head. See how new I really am to all of this? Ahhhh...back to the fat quarters.....and math.....Later!

I've become addicted to 30's prints. They just make me so happy. So...of course...I ebay-ed. And got lots of fat quarters. Six months ago, I didn't even know what a fat quarter was. I used the Yellow Brick Road Pattern and here's the top. Hanging all kitty-wambassed on my wall. But...I love this one. I have to add borders and then...I'ma quilt it!!!I made these "sewing kits" for Ladies Day at my church. Each year in the fall, we have a Ladies Day and it's amazing. We have breakfast, and singing, and speakers, prayers, skits, lunch. It's the most wonderful day of the year for me. This year, my third Ladies Day, I jumped in head first. My friend Val and I did breakfast, crepes, muffins, fruit. Then my daughter, Cyn, was in the skit and I was the "soundwoman". She also did some singing, so we had lots of rehearsals for both. And each year we give everyone a "favor" to remember the day. I volunteered to do that also. The theme for this year was Patterns for Living. Sewing kits seemed to fit. I bought medicine bottles from Walmart. Made pincushions to hot clue to the tops. Lots of basting there. Then I added a button, spool of thread, saftey pin, and on a piece of cloth a straight pin and a needle. I made 220 of those bad boys and loved every minute of it. My other friend, Jan, made the labels for them. A little sewing machine pic and the words..."A day hemmed in prayer is less likely to unravel". As always it was the best day. There is something very special about 200 women singing praises to the Lord. It moves me beyond words and I just thought I'd share a bit of it. And yes....under the sewing kits is a little table runner I made last week. And...only 48 weeks till the next Ladies Day...and I can't wait ....

This is one I like pretty well. Just big enough to snuggle and hang on the back of the couch. My first one that I'm really happy with and is completed.
