Sit and Sew

Posted on Updated on

I have found a new hobby. Quilting.

I enjoy sitting at my sewing machine and put together something that my family will have to remember me by!

I formed a sewing group here at Timber Valley SKP Park and we have a great time sitting around and working on whatever project we have handy at the time. We do get a lot of chatting done along with our sewing! It’s a great way to get to know one another too.

Jeanie is working on her beautiful flower quilt. Here she is getting her binding ready to finish of the quilt.
Linda, Sally and Joy discuss what color to border Linda’s placemats.
Sally is working on a “camper” themed quilt and is cutting out all the little pieces she needs to put material to.

 

We have show and tell about our projects and Marlene shows off her bag and pillow cases.

I finally finished my Downton Abbey “Sybil” lap quilt. This will keep me warm in the motorhome as we travel down the road. Chicks and Roosters quilted it for me and she did a beautiful job.

Us gals are going to make barn quilts for our sheds. ((Photos when they are done)) but I made this small one for the motorhome. I used the material I purchased in Whitehorse, YK and Alaska (Denali). The design is the bear paw block. Dale made the wooden bear paws and we mounted them on a piece of bamboo.

So we do more than sewing! Some of the gals are working on the corded baskets. This is Joy’s favorite craft.

I will miss this time with some good, good friends when we leave for the summer. I will also miss all the wonderful projects these gals craft. I’m asking for photo’s from them so I can keep up.

Life is good, awesome, beautiful, fantastic, crafty, delightful! God happens to be the same.

Here’s our new stairs!  It is so much easier getting in and out of the rig with steady stairs. And look how awesome they are decorated!  My honey is one crafty dude.

And ……John is home!

Life is good. Gods blessings make this child humble.
