Hexie/CSA and Taking a Brake

I have my hexie quilt on my dining room table, I want the grand kids to see the finished product.
My grand kids loved helping me.  they would clue the template, thread my needle, do stitching, cut the hexies and fabric.

I am going to take a brake from blogging, family are coming in for about 2 weeks.  Today I made stuffed cabbage, pork roast and tomorrow baked ziti.  I need some meals on hand since we will be busy and I don't want the oven on - it just get to warm in the house.

I am so excited about joining the CSA - I received broccoli, cabbage and wonderful lettuce.
 Make sure you sign up - it helps the farmers and I am prepping meals ahead of time.

Nylons/Panty Hose


I want to know what elderly citizens wear in the summer, nylons/panty hose seems to be outdated.
I wear pants/capris but with hot flashes we need to be cool as can be.  Do I spray my legs with tanning spray?  Rather not go there.  I have terrible veins on my legs- so the nylons (from eons ago) helped and the panty hose was a nice tummy tuck. 

Do women still wear stocking/nylons/panty hose?  Help...

P.S.  I decided I can wear dresses that are 3/4 in length.


I love wearing dresses but when you buy them on line all you see is size 4, 6.

Enough worrying about fashion, time to get things done around here - scraps!

Let me Hexie!

I need to clean the house, dust and do chores but no I just want to do hexies.
You know why - they are so so relaxing......

So much fun....I have saved way too many scraps.  My plan was to make an easy hexie quilt each year, this took 2 years.

The photo didn't come out great but I love the striped fabric.

I decided not to clean today just sew...

Great weekend, happy Father's Day will be with my sons.  Yippee!

Something Creative w/Books/cute family

I love how the library wrapped books and made houses.    
Look closely these ducks were at our book store, lovely family. 
My trip from Oklahoma to TX.

Crossed the Red River and always a wonderful place to stop.
Always a warm fire in the winter.

Sewing Outside

Do you ever sew outside, I did & made pillow cases for the children's hospital in TX.


















I always have good luck with Fort Worth Fabric.

This was a snoopy pillowcase for heroes.  The hospital needed boy pillowcases.


In the evening when it cooled off we went for a walk along the trail.




A great day in Texas.

Have an "Elsa" party

I went to an "Elsa" party and the girls were so so surprised.

Elsa looked beautiful and was so kind to the children.  The girls were so surprised.


Elsa painted their faces, hid snowflakes, read a book and of course sang "Let It Go".

The birthday girl was so excited - she was crowned a princess - and received a certificate.
The adults enjoyed it as well.

Have a great day.

I have to leave my garden for awhile.

I decided not to travel this summer since I have been working on my garden but duty calls as a grandma.

My neighbor's peonies.


rabbits have been eating everything.  

I use to pull these flowers out and then i saw them at a nursery for a high pric.
I think I will have lots of raspberries.
I hope my son keeps up with the watering.


  • Will be gone for awhile.
Have a great week everyone.
