Welcome to my blog

Please don't remind me that I'm poor; I'm having too much fun pretending I'm simply "living green" like everyone else these days.

Happy Thanksgiving

I hope everyone is having a great holiday filled with family, friends, and lots of good food!
Yesterday, I finished the 3 necktie quilts yesterday. There were only 20 ties to make three quilts. The customer has picked them up already. She was very pleased with how they turned out. Two were this color.

One was this color. All three were quilted with the same freehand designs.

The center of the medallion got simple circles.

I like this feather design. It travels around the center spine.

I did mark straight lines for the corner designs. This is to mimic the straight lines of the center.

Today will be a casual Thanksgiving late lunch with my daughter and grand daughter then a relaxing afternoon of ..... ? I haven't decided yet. I'll call my son's later this evening to see how their day went. They will be spending Thanksgiving with their in laws. Since they live a good distance from me, it would be too difficult for my sons to get here for a visit after their meal.
I have so many blessings. Too numerous to count. Today will be filled with thoughts of many, many people. Some near, some far away. Some relatives, some friends. Some have passed on, some are still here.
Everyone have a great day!

I love the feathers and I love how you did the corners of the tie quilts!

I spent about 6 hours cooking and cleaning up today and I had help, but I'm still too worn out to do much except websurf.

Thank you Theresa. Websurfing is fine. Searching for eye candy can be fun and inspiring.

Thank you too Sandy. I'm grateful to have all my internet friends.

Way cool quilt it makes me wish I had saved all my hubby's old ties. You do great work. I am shopping for a long arm. What kind of machine do you use. Any advise.
Thanks Stacy sntsimmons@q.com

Happy Thanksgiving to you! I celebrated mine a few weeks ago (in Canada). It is always a lovely time of year and I like that we can take the time to be thankful for all our blessings.

I love what you did with the necktie quilts. I've never liked necktie quilts but these ones are very beautiful and you've done a super quilting job as always. You are one talented lady.
