Library Quilters

Each year I get to meet some quilters at my library. This is what the quilters were working on this week.

This is a quilt of Valor.

Love the fabric in this quilt - she has been working on it for a long long time.

I love this dress for the doll, it is my favorite.
Have a great weekend. This is my favorite time of the year.

Doll PInk Lace Dress

I always go to the library at least 3x a week. This week I meant a lady who is making dress for a doll.
The outfit is beautiful.

I wish the photos were clearer - I love the lace and the beading.

Talent in this world is beautiful.

Have a great week, been busy with blessing of the quilts. Next week I will show you quilts the ladies made.

Clean up the garden - not easy

We are getting frost this evening so it was time to clean out the garden.  I will be 65 end of this month but I felt like 70 years old. It was tough, I kept saying to myself this is good exercise.  I thought theaches & pains would hit me when I am 80.   I got the garden cleaned up only had 4 tomato plants but it took 4 extra large brown bags to clean up.

Good thing is I "got it done".

I am hooked on knitting I need to clean my house.

Learning to Knit - Prayer Shawl

I have gone to Ravelry for patterns but I like the checker board pattern from Universal yarns.
Love my bamboo needles from Germany - worth the price.

The pattern is for a throw but I got it down to casting on 60 stitches, made a few mistakes learning how to correct them.  I have enough crafts going on but my name is on the prayer shawl contact list at church.  We had quite a few shawls but running low and Pastor requested more shawls so people who are interested are coming to me.  I have to admit I enjoy learning new things.

I understand you should learn something new each day.

Have a blessed weekend, always keep children in your prayers.

Have you heard the Tony Winner Musical "Hamilton"?

 This musical has won many awards and what is great about it tells a story about American history -
Alexander Hamilton.  The cast is superb great interview on the Charlie Rose Show on PBS.

Lin-Manuel the composer lives in Washington Heights in Manhattan near the George Washington Bridge which I have been on so many times not realizing all who lived in the famous part of NY.
Too name a few Lou Gehrig, Henry Kissinger, Stan Lee, Freddie Prinez, Jacob J. Javits. Leo Grocey and many others. 

I am almost 65 years old and I am listening to Hip Hop, but it is the story it tells.  Check it out on
"I Tunes" or "You Tube" also  car karaoke  with James Corden.

What view do you have from your window?

I see this view from my living room each day.  This has become our vocal point from the living room.

 My garden is so so this year, I have these moths/flies that have been eating lots of green leaves.
I understand some of the insect are good ones.

Be careful out there and stay safe- The world needs prayers.
