Catching up a UFO…

Hi, the other day I mentioned walking into my sewing room, looking around and seeing UFOs on my sewing table, then walking out…

Well, this evening I walked back in and took one of the UFOs in hand.  I’ve had these pieces for some time… long enough that I don’t remember what I had planned for them.

Here’s what they became.  I still need to back it, quilt it and bind it but it will be a wheelchair quilt.

After I took the picture above I set my camera down on my sewing table, as I finished up in the room.  I didn’t know this picture was taken until I was going through the pictures to download.  As you can see it’s time to clean my machine.

Another project I’m working on is a collection of recipes I’ve gathered over the years.   I’m going to type the smaller recipes so they can be combined on one page. I plan to keep the handwritten recipes handed down in the family, as they are.  It is going to be indexed so that recipes will be easier to find and the recipes will be in sheet protectors to help keep them clean for future use.


We had another beautiful sunset this evening.  I tried to get a good picture but I was shivering so much, it didn’t turn out clear, but you can still get an idea of the colors we had.  There was lavender, blue/gray, yellows, and oranges turning to a darker orange/pink.  It was like God’s painting pallet.  🙂

Well, until next time, please stay warm and try to find something beautiful in your day.

I'm a happily married mom of two, living in Arkansas and selling AVON. Both of my children are grown and in college. I often wonder where the time went. I never thought I'd have blog but when blogs came along, I jumped on board. That just goes to show one doesn't know what the future holds. I was born in 1967 but my life truly began in 1996. That is the year I realized I need God in my life. That is the year I asked Jesus Christ into my life. So, you will see, as you follow my blog, there will be mention of God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit from time to time. I can't live without sharing that part of my life. I like to go to flea markets and visit antique shops and I usually find something to take home with me. I'm fairly new at crocheting. I tried to learn to crochet in my twenties but I didn't have left handed instructions. I could do it right handed but it was hard for me to keep my stitches consistent. Then a few years ago a left handed friend of mine gave me a book with left handed crocheting instructions and I learned to crochet. My first quilt was in done in 2001. Money was tight and I wanted to give my husband something nice. So I decided to make him a "blanket". Little did I know I would be hooked and still be making quilts years later. I'm starting my hand at scrapbooking and watercoloring. We will see how that goes. :) I update my AVON page each week with a special deal, so be sure to check it out. Well, that's a little about me. Hope you enjoy my blog and follow me on this journey.
