My Boy and My Garden......

Hello everyone....

My oldest son, Tyler, got baptized at church on Sunday. It was a wonderful day. I am so pleased he made this decision and all on his own. Sonny Owens is our preacher. We go to Eastwood Church of Christ in Florence, ALabama. It is a great church and now our family.

My garden has gotten huge. I planted tons of things. So far we have tomatoes and watermelons growing. I think I planted the watermelons too close to the cantaloupes. They have taking over. So far no cantaloupe blooms have produced fruit. My hot and green peppers are getting ready to produce. My cauliflower has been over run by the watermelons too. Next year I will know better.

So who has started making or buying Christmas presents yet? Sad isn't it. It will be here before we know it.

Have a great day.....

Sewing Away......

Joshua & Emily eating cereal and being cute for the camera.

Joshua wearing a dirt bike helmet and weilding an axe. He thought he was too cool.

My precious lady. She looks so happy, LOL.

This is a wall hanging I received last month from a friend through a swap. It is lovely.

I am mailing this wall hanging off today to a friend in a swap. The idea was anything goes for July. They encouraged us to us fabric other than cotton.

This quilt is for my dear friend Amy and her family. We met through church. They are moving in 2 weeks to go to Mississippi. They are moving to Nathan's home town. He will be a preacher at his home church. They are wonderful people with very big caring and helping hearts. I am sure the Lord has great things in store for them. We will sorely miss them here in Alabama.
The quilt pattern is the friendship star. I made it with Batiks. Amy was an interior designer. So I knew she would love all the color. It is a lap sized quilt for them to snuggle up on the couch in. It is exactly as wide as the entertainment center which is on the wall behind us. LOL.

I have been busy sewing. I gave Amy this quilt Sunday. We had a going away get together after the evening service. It was fun. It has been raining all week. We needed it so bad. We are at least half way back to normal as far as the amount of rain we need. We have been in a bad drought. My garden has gone crazy. I have watermelons that have come up in the last few days. This morning I found little green tomatoes on the plants. Yeah. I can't wait to eat this stuff. I called my hubby at work right away to share my excitement. I will post a picture of the garden soon. Well I gotta run. I just wanted to get caught up on my blog and share some pictures. God Bless.
