May Finish!

Finally! Some sewing has gotten done!!! I am very happy to finally find some time to do some sewing! I finished the star quilt along from last year that Crazy Mom quilts put on. This is Rich's least favorite quilt. He doesn't like the colors of it. Oh well, tomorrow I will wash it so it is nice and crinkly! Then I hope to work on my batik/black quilt.


And check out these old spools I was given! The prices on them range from 15 cents to 40 cents. There are brands I have never heard of before! Very cool!

Last night in baseball we played Columbia and lost, we play the same team tomorrow night and I hope we win. Our record is 3-3 right now. Tonight is a CC meeting, 4-H and T is supposed to ump a game tonight. Tomorrow night is also Hippology. Very busy, and only 7 more days of school left!!

The neighbor and I have also been walking 4 miles a day, but its pouring rain right now so we are not going to get to walk today. Off to enjoy the cool air that the rain brought, do some blog reading and get kids started on homework!

I like your quilt! I love how they get all crinkly when you wash them.

I have a collection of wooden spools of thread. A few weeks back I bought a shoebox full, I think it had close to 90 spools in it!

Lovely quilt! I love the colors no matter what Rich says.I have my mom's old spools and some still have needles in them.I remember when I was a kid stores that sold fabric use to have this device on the edge of the cutting table that had a horizontal slit.You would run the edge of the fabric through it and the device would automatically measure the fabric. When you would measure what you wanted you would push a button and it would cut a 1/4 inch in the fabric where you could rip it.I haven't seen any of those anymore.
