What?? Where Does Time Go??

Wow.  Just Wow.  

It has been 2 years since I have posted here... well, almost.

I have been doing things here and there, where the pictures might be I don't know but I will see if I can find some...

I made this baby quilt.. didn't take a finished picture.  It was for my grandson's cousin when she was born.

We remodeled our bedroom.  Didn't take pictures of that but it is a lot nicer than it used to be.

We spent 9 months building an 12x16 small shop building for my spouse to have all of his wood working things in a space where he could set it all up and have it organized.  It has a gabled roof and he has 2 lofts, a small 4 foot loft and an 8 foot loft, both about 5.5 feet of head room.  He also has his photo box and stuff out there.

The other big news is he retired at the end of September, I will continue to work since I like my job and we need health insurance. 

I'm currently working on this for my friend Jannett.



I have a wedding quilt that I messed up in October of 2017 that I finally figured out how to fix so I'm doing that for the 2nd anniversary of the couple.  Pictures when it is done....

I repaired and delivered this to the little girl who is now a young lady that I made it for.  She was just 4 or 5 when I made it and now she is 21!  When she told me she still had it but that the backing was shredded I told her to bring it to me and I'd fix it.  The top was made from a cotton/poly blend so it wore very well.



I'm also finishing a couple of things that are almost done that I pulled off the shelf to list on Etsy.  Husband person is making wood crafts and he sold his first fountain pen so he is pretty excited to get more things made and listed.  We are also listing some of my daughter's bead work.

This person started Kindergarten 2 weeks ago and will be 6 at the end of October.  



Aunt Tasha likes to play with Snapchat...

Pictures of his quilt after I give it to him.  I make him one every 2 years.  Baby quilt was wild animals:



Next quilt was Avengers/Batman.



The 4 year quilt was a Fleece with Cars on one side and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles on the other.

The 6 year quilt is Spiderman on the front and the Solar System on the back.  I let him choose so the quilt every 2 years is representative of what he is into at the time.

There were a lot more things that I did and made, small things.  A lot of time working and building his shop building and gardening and Bible study and Ministry.

Seems like the older I get, the busier I am.  I thought it was supposed to be the other way around? :)

That's it from here, for now.
