My tree.

I got my tree up right after Thanksgiving. But Jennie came a week later and put the ornaments on for me. It looks so much better than this photo shows. I have really enjoyed it.

More bags!!

I made these for gifts on Sat. My granddaughter Sara,14 needed gift for all her friends . So Sara and I cut them out and Jennie and I sewed and Sara turned them She needed 8 of them and Jennie took some for gifts for her co-workers at the Quilt shop. I kept the brown poke-a-dot.

My friend Janie come over Friday and I showed her how to put them together the 2 below are hers.

The ones we made for Kristin were a great success. The girl's in the apartment at collage loved them.

Me and my girls!

Jennie and Kristin came and the 3 off us had a sew in to make gifts for here room mates at collage. I think there is 5 in her apartment with her. We had a good time and made 18 sleep mask and 10 large cosmetic bags in all. We stopped about 11:30 P.M. Sat. night. I think it was a very productive night of sewing. We were all 3 happy with the finished product. There is one small bag we made 1st . We decided to enlarge it. I like the larger ones much better.

Some of the mask have yellow lining and some red lining.

New window in the building.

I got a new window in the $$ pit. For 2 days I had a big open hole in my bedroom now everyone in town has seem my bedroom!

It turned into a bigger job than I expected. The wall was not good and we had to replace all the inside wall in the room.

I hope this stops the rain and water from coming in. The top of the old window had slipped 1/2" and was open . Water was coming in from the sidewalk when it rained. After all the work , $$ and time I hope it's fixed!

My new window.

Now to get the $$ for the other window!!!

My kitchen sink

This is my kitchen sink. It was in the building and looking bad with drawers missing. With new facets and lots of scrubbing and a coat of apple green paint. Some selves made out of some stuff all ready here. I love it! Dear Granddaughter Kristin painted it for me. Then she took a old recipe book from the 50's and did a collage of the pages for me on the wall. The chair is one of five I got for $2.00 each at the Goodwill.
The building is a mess but it will get better with work and lot's of $$. It will be slow but I have more time than $$.

What's nice is I can have fun and do as I like with it.

In Nebraska now. And don't you just love duck tape?

My poor dog packed in the van. He hates to ride in the van. He was one sad puppy! Here we are packed and ready to head out from AZ. We couldn't get one more thing in IT!

It looks like the Beverly Hillbilly's on the move! Jennie did the packing of the van and the Duck tape wounder on top. We didn't have a problem with it all the way home.

We left AZ in the middle of July . Went to Waco , TX. to see #1 Grand Daughter , Kristin at Mission Waco where she spent 10 weeks this Summer. Then it was on to NE.

I will have some photos of my living space in the old building I bought last Oct. When I have time to post them.

I have a job taking care of a couple that are so nice. They are a joy to be with and to do for.

Jennie my DD came in yesterday to spend a week and then we are heading back to Nebraska. Were I will spend a few months. I hope to back in AZ. by Oct. 1st. For the winter. I don't like the cold NE. winters with ice and snow and blowing cold winds. This is my DA Gladys's house that I have lived in for the last year.

This is part of the main st. in Old Bisbee . Jennie took it because she liked the building with all the bright colors.

I am back and got a new puppy!

This is Kota. He is a mix of pug and pick. 6 months old and his birthday is 1/1/2011. I got him from the border rescue here in Bisbee. He was not socialized and was afraid of everything .

He is coming along very well . Acting like a puppy and happy.

I was in Nebraska for 3 weeks and went to #1 grandsons graduation and #3 granddaughters 8th grade graduation. This is my DD Jennie and Sara at the ceremony.

Here is my Josh. He was #3 in his class. I am so proud of the grand kids they all do very well in school.

This is Kristin and Sara. Kristin is in her last year of collage and is in Waco TX. this Summer doing missionary work there.

From the left overs!

I made this tote, a key fob and a coin purse from the left overs from my large bag . It's all box up to send to Jennie so I don't have to carry it all on the plane the May 3. It will be nice to see all my quilt friends at the quilt meeting in Orchard. I am looking forward to seeing their projects.

Josh the oldest grandchild is graduating the 7th of May. They all are growing up to fast to suit me!!

Jennie's callenge is done!!!

This is the back of my bag I made for Jennie's challenge she sent me. It was a 1/2 a sweatshirt panel she sent me and gave the quilt group members back in Orchard.
I used instructions and all that was on the panel.

If you look and see the woman's eyes and parts of her on the front here.

It will hold my lap top or something just fine.

What is it?

This is a challenge Jennie sent me. She sent me a pre-print panel for a quilted sweat shirt . From the late 80's or early 90's? Not my kind of thing it was mostly blue. So I pulled 4 other patriotic fabrics and cut them in strips and pin weaved them together. Now I am sewing red metallic cord over the seams that join. You can see the 2 rows I have done on the bottom. I think it will be a bag to put in the car for a carry all.

Love flowers in the yard!

Linda a DF and I stopped at a nursery and we had to buy these pretty little flowers. It's a Iceplant . Used mostly for ground cover.
In time it will fill in very nicely. I wanted something easy to care for here in the high desert. It likes the dry heat.
I got going on a new cloths line bowl . I got the strips for the free stuff at the Fiber Arts Studio.
We are having a festival in the middle of may. I will be in NE. but I will donate things for the ticket drawing. This bowl is up for grabs if you are in the Bisbee area on May 14th at the Festival.
