GARDEN BURN-OUT...SEWING ROOM, TAKE ME AWAAAAAAAY

GARDEN BURN-OUT
2014

SEWING ROOM TAKE ME AWAAAY !!
(This may take some time to load because of the video at the end)


Tomato Sauce

Veggies

Banana Peppers

The Garden had a mind of its own this summer but the end result was a pantry full of canned tomatoes, tomato sauce, squash pickle, marinated banana pepper rings (great on that Thanksgiving Turkey sandwich), grape jelly, blueberry jam, blackberry jam, blackberrries frozen, blueberries frozen, etc...

WHEW!!!

I am SEW ready to get back into my sewing room.  I have to admit to stealing some time for the 
See You September Blog Hop
My Date is September 10th

I have some "inspirational projects, utilitarian projects, and some just plain fun to sew projects.  I have lots to show you now that I have more time to sew.  School is back in session around here so my babysitting duties are reduced and less garden chores.

RUSH HOUR Blog Hop
is coming up right after See You In September
My Day is SEPT. 29th

It's Peach Season in Alabama and I live 10 miles from a working commercial Peach Orchard.
Does that mean I'm obligated to "put up" peaches & Peach Jam???  Put Up being the southern term for canning and freezing.  There is a 1/2 bushel sitting in my kitchen...HELP!

OH NO, I forgot about APPLE SEASON
That same Peach Orchard is also a HUGE Apple Orchard.
Red Delicious, Rome, McIntosh, Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Pink Lady, Gala, Braeburn, Arkansas Black are just some of the apple varieties grown around here.

I am determined to get into my Sewing Room
Here are a few projects since May


Doll Quilt from Sharon Vroomsman
in Doll Quilt Swap
I made the fabric box

Last But Not Least
here is a video of my grandson James getting to be a Guest Chef at a restaurant in Birmingham, Alabama as part of his Magic Moments Dream Wish. He and the family just returned home from 7 days and nights in DisneyWorld. (I hope this video clip goes thru, if not let me know )

My Sweet Scott
Some of you recall that Scott was a baby when I began blogging.  I had just retired and started babysitting this little guy when he was only 6 months old.  My how 5 yrs does pass quickly! That cheesy grin is so fake which shows how much he Hates having his picture made.

Sweet Baby James
Born Oct. 8, 2007
Premature...diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy

Look at this Cool Little man "WALK" to get his diploma!! Got that Miami Vice look going on.
This day came as a result of a LOT of therapy and sheer determination by James and my daughter Mary Ellen aka, James' mother!  I have to admit I shed some tears watching my boy trying so hard to get across that gym floor.  The lady with blond hair is James' aide and she is Wonderful as is his Teacher!!  
Hats off to Mrs. Jamie Solley, K Teacher and Mrs. Linda, James' personal assistant!!


A few Doll Quilt Swaps

Keen On Green March Swap

Cozy Cup Holder ready to be sewn.  
I've made 6 of these to put away for Christmas gifts


PaPaw aka Tractor Man and his wing-man, James cut grass

I lost some pictures of the garden and a few quilt projects due to my lack of tech savy.  I just hope I can retrieve them with the help of my son.
Currently working on 3 throw size teacher quilts, a T-Shirt quilt, 2 more T-Shirt quilts on back order, and May's Doll Quilt Swap Quilt "Something Modern".  I don't normally do modern quilting so this is out of my wheelhouse BUT....I'm actually liking it.  Who Knew?

Blessings
