SEE YOU IN SEPTEMBER...GINGHAM STYLE


SEPTEMBER
IS
HERE

I've been busy with Gardening and Quilting
this Summer.  
My Brand new Grandson was adopted into our family and RJ is now with his FOREVER FAMILY. Big Brother James is Thrilled! RJ was a pre-birth adoption and my DD and SIL brought him home from the hospital 10 days ago!
  I'm going to keep my comments short and sweet because you are here to look at pictures....I know how it is, you're trying to blog hop, drink your coffee, get ready for work (unless you're retired, like ME!!), catch up on the morning news, eat breakfast, feed the dogs/cats, put in a load of laundry, fold some towels, etc...  All you want to see are the projects.  So here tis!! (and I forgot pictures of all the NICU blankets
I made ....Oh well.)


Vintage Sports Baby Blanket Back
Gingham Border

Vintage Sports Baby Quilt Front
Straight Line Quilting with Walking Foot 
and some
FMQ around border

BABY CRIB EYE CANDY
This little jewel is going to hang on the side of my new Grandson's crib! Black, White, and Red make the best color contrasts for infant eyes, especially those first few months.  Did you know that?


 Gingham is PERFECT for Baby Eye Candy



Pattern is "Great Granny Block"
Riley Blake Gingham...is there any other kind??



Grandson James's K Teacher's Quilt
Mrs. Solley's Quilt is in the pinning stage but you get the Look!
Handprints are from each student in her class 2013-2014


James' Personal Aide's Quilt
Has been appliqued and spray basted...awaiting quilting

Both Teacher Quilts
I tried my best to finish but Gardening intervened


THE T-SHIRT QUILT
This Quilt GREW...and GREW...and GREW!!!
You are only viewing the Bottom half

TOP Half of T-SHIRT Quilt
Needs Binding...My Fabric for Backing didn't work so I've 
re-ordered...do you ever change your mind from an original idea?

ONE MORE LOOK
78" x 108"

Sewing Machine Cover
with 
Pockets
I made this for ME!!


 Look at That Gingham Binding!



Another Peek...This will be the quilt that gets thrown on the floor for Baby RJ to play on, roll over on, & rock like an airplane on



RETRO APRON
for Granddaughter
I found this apron in a bag of aprons that belonged to a good friend's mother who passed away.
Once my friend Jan monogrammed it after I altered the apron to fit E.G., it was perfect and she loves it!

Fabric Box
oops, picture is blurry...these are so fun to make.
!

Mini Quilt in Hangar is from Sharon Vroomsman in a Doll Quilt Swap!
Isn't it adorable?  I wish I could claim it but alas I can not....paper piecing is NOT my gift!

DOLL QUILT VINTAGE
I made this for another Doll Quilt Swap Partner.


One Last DOLL QUILT PROJECT
My Swap Partner wanted Christmas Fabric

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 )

A GRANDSON'S WISH COMES TRUE

WISHES STILL COME TRUE


HE'S GOING TO DISNEYWORLD !!!!
MAGIC MOMENTS OF ALABAMA
MAKES JAMES' WISH COME TRUE
Check out this link for the story
http://www.al.com/news/huntsville/index.ssf/2014/06/watch_as_6-year-old_with_cereb.html

My Grandson James LOVES LOVES LOVES our local Alabama Hammers Arena Football Team.
His Favorite player is #11  Darian Barnes.
Darian helped Magic Moments along with Alabama Hammers
Reveal to James during halftime last Saturday night that he was going to Disney World.  We got the reaction we had hoped for and he tells Everyone he is going to Disney World.

I thought it would be fun to share our good news with you, my blogging and quilting friends.

Blessings
