Impromptu sewing at the cabin..

sister Jana was going to spend the weekend at the lake since the guys were all hunting, soo she ended up with cobbler company! 
when i got there Auntie Mary & Uncle Doodles (Doug) were just leaving..they live out the lake just a few cabins from Jana/Steve.

 Jana and I were waiting for Carol P and looked out the window and there she was, checking out the lake! Carol loves the lake..
we got right to work!

Auntie Mary came back and it was time for lunch, sister Jana always has great food on hand!

Jana was working on some (hockey motif) pillow cases for a school fundraiser her son teaches at..i think it was for the hockey team he coaches.. 

 Auntie Mary was checking out my Christmas quilt as i was using hers as a pattern.

 I finished the backing for my Christmas quilt last night. it ended up being bigger than i had planned 100 x 70 so i incorporated an extra block sister Jana had made me.

Mary was there the night before and they were up late sewing & bonding!

Carol stayed late Saturday and kept busy stitching..
it was a great spur of the moment get together to bond, sew, eat, chat.... Thank You sister Jana!!

enjoy your day my Blog Friends!                          Jody

Gosh its been awhile...

i don't even know where to start.. I guess I'll start with today!
Last week i decided it was time to finish my Cobbler Christmas Quilt. We exchanged
12 inch quilt blocks in i think 2008 and were each to make them into a quilt. i decided to use Auntie Mary's as a pattern, i just hadn't been able to find a pattern i wanted to make.

enlarge and look at the inner red paisley border. it looks washed out in the picture
but i love the fabric and love it in the quilt! i do need to replace a red circle in my block
(2nd block down on the right) and work on the back yet. then i am going to bring it to get lightly machine quilted.
A gal friend of my children who buys, renovates then flips houses left me a treasure by my back door!!!

I know nothing about these and don't even know if it is all here? if any one has any info or know of a good place to research this, please let me know! I'm so excited! i cleaned it all up today and if i don't get it to work at least it looks perfect in my house!

well its great posting and touching base with you all!
enjoy your evening!                 Jody
