I'M TELLIN ON 'MOM'!!

While I was playing and napping--
Guess what 'Mom' did today?????

Yep--she was actually in the the sewing room--
and she wasn't just standing in the middle of it wondering what to do--
she was working on some projects--
And this is what she accomplished today--
First she finished this little project--
she told me she had done this needlepunched pumpkin a couple years ago--
and then never knew how to finish it off--
so she got around and made it into a mini wall hanging--
now to find a 'mini' wall space to hang it up?????

Then she did 'a' counted cross stitch last week end--
but what to do with it--
then she found this--from last year--
And she said it looked lonely--was the only other thing she really had that was in purples--
sooooo-
now it has some 'company'!!!
and I think the saying is soooo cute!!!!
then she has a couple things on the cutting counter that she needs to finish--
so she tackled one of them--
I am glad I was sleeping==cause I know she got really 'frustrated' a few times--
and even though my Mom does not swear--
she came real close a few times==I just know she did!!!
says she now knows why she had to take a break!!!
so here is this wall hanging top--
I did finally make her take a 'nap' at 4:30--
told her that they always make me feel better--
must of worked for her too--
as now it is ready to be put together with back and batting--
then to decide how to quilt it--
and she says there is about 4 quilts/wall hangings ahead of this one--
so I think she better get busy hand quilting--
unless it is my feeding or play time==those things are more important that quilting
especially when she likes to 'stab' herself with the needles!!!!!!!!!
Hugs from me--Miss Gracie and her 'mom'!!!

  4. Well, aren't you the busy bee? Love the purples and the Christmas one of course.
    I am still at the "standing in the workroom looking" stage. Maybe I need another nap?
    Hugs!
