So while I am sitting with her through the day and she is sleeping, I have been working on yo-yo's and bindings. Here are some of the yo-yo's that I did.
The other day Richard helped me pin a quilt on the frame. Right now, I have the frame almost against the wall and it hurts my legs to try to stretch and get to the back roller so he was a sweetie and helped me. I thought that since I am doing some short walks that I would be able to stand there and quilt at the frame for a few minutes at a time. I didn't want to start with anything large so these are lap size quilts.
These are nothing special just fabric with a border sewn on it. This first one is for my nephew, Gabe for Christmas. He likes Thomas the Train. I also wanted to quilt them with a very large and loose design so that they would go faster and I would not have to stand there that long. The quilting design is called "Happy Times" It did feel great to be back at the frame again, although I had to do some major cleaning to my machine it had set too long.
This is the other one. Remember the horse fabric that I bought at Hobby Lobby the other day?? I loved it but did not want to cut it up so I just sewed a border on it too. I quilted it with the same design....big and loose!
Here are some cute little photos that I took the other night. Hunter has always loved falling asleep in his daddy's lap. I know he is 8 but he still enjoys it. So I look over there and this is what I see....Richard with Hunter laying asleep across his lap and Jazz and Festus asleep on top of him. Anymore and I think his recliner would fall!!!
Here is a close up of Hunter....he sleeps with his eyes half open!!!
And of course, Donkey cuddled up in my batting pile snoozing!!!! My stepdaughter, Lexie started a blog!!!! I noticed earlier that I was her only follower so far which I'm sure that will change soon...you know how teenagers are they have a ton of friends.
Oh before I go, I have to brag on Richard. He has been so sweet. He knows that I am needed at mom's so before he goes to school he has been doing the laundry, dishes and all of the housework! When I got home the other evening he even had a big fire going in the fireplace! He is the best!!!!!
