TShirt Quilt (not really)


I wanted to make my grandson Isaac a tshirt quilt from his old tee’s. But truth is they were not in the best shape. My thoughts were why would you use beautiful new fabric and those funky old tee shirts. So, I purchased new fabric bought the screen designs and had them put on the pre cut fabrics with the fusible interfacing already ironed on them. NICE says it ALL!

Here is one of the squares made from the white medium weight Jersey fabric I bought from Joann’s Fabric.
Here you can see several they are so fresh, crisp, and clean. They also iron extremely well to the fusable pelon.
The completed quilt was the easiest one I have ever had quilted it literally came out perfect according to my quilting friend Mary Kay of Allendale. (she had alot to do with that as she is awesome) For the backing I ended up using a black flat fitted queen size sheet.
You can see it on display here in the background of the Graduation party decorations.
This is my amazing Grandson Isaac Alarcon. He will be playing football for Graceland University. They are blessed for sure to have him. Not only a great athlete but an awesome young man of integrity and compassion.

Khloe’s New Dress


So simple, yet so Sweet!
Here is the pattern I used, got it for 10 cents at our local thrift store, MISSION POSSIBLE.
Fabric was Walmart’s Easter selection.
“I love it”
She wanted pockets! Not included in pattern but were not difficult to add.

My Grand Daughter Khole has been with me almost 3 weeks. We went to Bible School at Ravenwood Christian Church last week. We have played in the river went to the pool, had cook outside at the farm with Uncle Paul and Aunt Sissy. We went to an outdoor concert that had a pool and water slide, she loved that.

I did it!

Fathers Day was totally amazing. My husband wanted a project done. He wanted electrical to his garage. We all pitched in and got it done along with good food and games.

I decided Saturday to get the carpets up in our mud room. Alot of scraping but it is getting closer to being done.

Summers as us a flying by the garden is growing and we are eating salad, peas, onions and beets. The strawberries have been amazing too.

Lots of Blessings praying to live life more Grateful!

Today is such a fun day not only is it Grandparents Day at our local school here but I am going to be a grandma again any minute.

This is our sweet grandson Paul. He is graduating from Kindergarten.

This is the dress I made last fall getting ready for spring this year Such a fun dress, I really liked the true to size pattern. Went together nicely too.

Above is the pattern I used. The beautiful vase and flowers are from my sweet daughter Leah. Yesterday, my dear husband made a delicious dinner for a few in the family to celebrate Mother’s Day. it was our grandson Isaac’s graduation from H.S.

This is my daughter Marybeth and her big family of only boys, all big football players.We had our game time together in the evening. It was a very nice day indeed.

This special cake above I made for a sweet graduating friend. I have to say that without the Lord I could do nothing, because it’s true. Blessings, Christie

I have pledged to wear only those garments which I have seen myself except a few tee shirts and under clothes for the entire month of May. I also pledged to take at least 15 pictures that I will post here during the month. The picture posting will be the hard part as i am not the slim trim GRANDMA i wish i was as a young mother.

Zipper Pouch Crazy


Well I went from one video on you tube to another. Some of them were pretty amazing and I felt like I was robbing a bank . I learned so much in a short time watching them and it was free. So far I have made 12. One with straps and pockets. Now for the double zipper!

Cooking

Ol Fashion Cinnamon Raisin Bread


 

This batter bread recipe is simply amazing.  I think I can settle down now and just enjoy baking up some simple bread that is mouth watering good. From the book, “A World of Breads”, by Dolores Casella.

I was able to deliver loaves fresh from the oven to two friends right before dinner.

That was the highlight of my day.

Blessings Everyone
