Labor Day Weekend at my house
AWESOME buns. From Joy the Baker. I can't tell you how wonderful they made my house smell. Between the smell of raspberry - lemon buns, my sweet family and all the fabric and sewing machines this place was heaven today.
Youtube video to figure out how to load my own quilts. June (the lady I bought the machine from) is coming over Tuesday to give me some pointers, but I really did not want to wait until Tuesday to use it. Mom, you should watch that movie. It may make the whole process more clear.
This quilt is not a fancy thing, it is really a horrible one that I started about 3 years ago. I think that it was the first Jelly Roll I ever bought. It is one by Fig Tree quilts. I stitched all these strips together, but it ended up being a really long narrow quilt top, so for a couple occasions I used it as a table cloth, but now it is a quilt...I unpicked a bunch and did some cutting and more sewing...and I think this will be about 80 by 100 when all is said and done. Anyway the quilting has gone well. I am already learning some tricks about this older Gammill.
I think we are just going to grill burgers tomorrow...maybe try the Cowboy church. The kids get to rope goats during Sunday school.
I hope your weekend is going to go well. Thanks for stopping by!
