3rd Time In May

I am really on a roll. 3 posts in the month of May. I have to pat myself on the back. Now that I am a homemaker life is more relaxing. I don't have to stress any more about getting things done before or after work.
I finally planted the seeds I bought. Some of them are starting to sprout. I planted tons of seeds. Fruit, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. We will see. My problem in the past was that I either over watered them or didn't give them enough water. We are having a drought here and it has been hot so I have been checking them everyday.
I have a few sewing projects in the works. I am going to finish my sister-in-laws quilt tomorrow. She is going to watch the boys for me. It is king sized and takes a lot of concentration on my part to finish it. A friend is making me a driftwood lamp. So I am making her a quilt in return using civil war reproduction fabric. It will be lovely.
I found out last night that a dear friend is moving to another state. I am sad about this. I am also very happy for them. They will be about four hours away now. I want to make her a quilt before they leave in August.
Well have a great day where ever you are in this world. GOD BLESS YOU AND YOURS.

Bow Tie Baby Quilt

Hello everyone.....A friend at church is getting ready to have a baby on June 11th. We had her baby shower today. She is having a boy. I made her this quilt. It took 8 1/2 hours to make it. I was up until 3:30 am and got it all sewn and pinned for quilting. I quilted it this morning after church. Talk about the last minute. I knew I had to make this. LOL. I am a procrastinator big time.
I quit my job on Thursday. My boss wasn't a very nice person. So I decided I had enough and quit. It felt so great knowing I didn't have to put up with his crap anymore. YEAH..... I now have tons of time to take care of my family and for sewing and other crafts and so on and so forth.
I am going to try to make some things. I have a ton of UFO's. And a lot of ideas of things I want to try but haven't had the time.
God Bless....

Baby Quilt and Wall Hanging

Hello everyone.....Today I made a top for a baby quilt. After church tonight I have to sandwich it and get it sewn together. I am giving it to a friend from church for a baby shower gift. Her baby is due the end of this month. This is the first top I have made this year and the second wall hanging. I need to make three more baby quilts for friends and family. God Bless to all of you.

Say a prayer for my uncle who is in Iraq. He won't be home until October. God Bless our troops.
