The second P is Patchwork. It seems like I have not been sewing enough lately. I work full time, am active at my church, have a husband that I love too distraction and 10 grandchildren that I love spending time with. But I have managed to keep in the game a little. I currently have a Hobby Grand Quilter on an Inspira Frame sitting in my living room. It isn't mine, but due to some fortunate circumstances it resides in my household rather than its owner's for the time being. I will introduce you to her later. I have a quilt on the frame, that is definitely not my style. It is a novelty print of long haul semis. My friend Gail Bohannon died several months ago after a long battle with cancer. She had started this quilt for her brother(He is a truck driver), her daughters don't quilt and so asked me to quilt this top for their uncle. His birthday is in December so I will have it done before then.
needs to go on the frame and be quilted in time to go with me to Gainesville to visit my sister next weekend for her birthday. About 6 years ago, she said she would never get a quilt and I told her she would if my kids would ever stop making babies. (They still haven't) I told her I would make her one before she turned 50, well she turns 50 next Saturday. I will have to get it on the frame tomorrow to get it quilted in time for our sisters weekend, scheduled for next Friday. I guess I need prayer to get it done.
The 3rd P is for Popups - My husband and I bought a popup travel trailer in March of this year. It is actually what precipitated my entrance into blogland. I thought blogging would be a way of keeping track of our travels in our new mini rv, and then found out that quilters all over the world blogged about fabric, quilts, their families and yes their travels. We have been on just a few trips with our popup, but we really like it. Well I love it and he likes it. We will see how long it takes him to upgrade.
Our popup is a Coleman/Fleetwood Americana/Utah. It has a small bumpout, and sleeps 7-8. But my husband says camping is supposed to be restful. So after the last time we took some of the munchkins, he decided it was an adult activity. Our last trip was to the mountains to see the change of colors, but we are planning a short weekend a couple hours away from our house. The temperatures in Florida are alot milder than the mountains this time of year, so we will try out a few of the state parks close to home.
It should be fun and I love to sit out by the camper and watch the birds and listen to the sounds around me.
Now to find a hand sewing project to take with me.
Until next time,
Look at the birds. They don't plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren't you far more valuable to him than they are?—Matthew 6:26
