Another Time Another Year

As we all know, the year must come to an end an another will be issued in. It is that time.
I have not been quilting so much as I have be playing, catch up. But I have been sewing and that is good. I can't say I have used up my stash as Angie over at A Quilting Reader's Garden has. Nor have I been able quilt up as many as others have this year. But I am sewing.
I started an etsy shop and so at least I can sew on little things and then share them with others.
I am still homeschooling my grand daughter so that is where most of my time is spent. Also, with the new grand babies that entered my world this last year. I have been busy. I was able to make a couple of small quilts that i think I posted, but may not have.
Time just keeps ticking away and there are times when I can't remember what today is.
Like today when I woke up and had to ask myself, what is today and who is coming. "No one", was the reply. I had the day off. So I cleaned a little bit and then hit the sewing room. I was able to finish another wallet for my shop, with hopes that someone will like it as much as I do.
I must keep this short so as not to really bore you so I will end it with this.
HAVE A HAPPY NEW YEAR and keep on stitching in your quilting play house.

Blue on Blue is Finally Done.

Oh my goodness. I can't remember when I started this, but it has been a while.
Blue on Blue

I really like how the black inner border makes the 26 different colors pop. And well because I didn't have another blue that would work as the binding, I chose black. It works!.
Hope you like it. I have it for sale over at my etsy shop that you can get to by clicking on the link at the side of this post.

November Half Done

Hello Bloggers,
           I cannot believe that this month is already half over. It seems like it was just the beginning of the new school year and yet that was over two months ago.
  With the time scooting by so quickly, I am not sure I am ready for the holidays.
My daughters anniversary is 10 days away, for their second year of being no longer newly weds. And little Caleb is already six weeks old.
Sweetie boy, will be "1" in less than a month, and he is now walking. We do laps around the kitchen/ living-room.

So, while I work with all the little ones, I also try to keep my sanity making little quick projects.
I posted a few more items for my etsy shop.

I sold a couple as well. Some friends came in to town last week and just had to have a couple of the wallets.
Well need to get going, as to brainstorm more ideas for color schemes.
Thank you for stopping and visiting, and check out the shop on your way around the web, by clicking on the link on the right.

I have managed to find time to create a couple more items for my shop on ETSY. If you want to see all that is there, just click on the tab link on the right of the page.

I was able to visit with the newest member of the family yesterday and that was fun.

And J.P. is almost walking, with the two step forward, one step back dance. Another week and there will be no stopping him.

Well I need to go. The time is slipping away.
Thank you for visiting and please visit my shop, and come back again.

New Additions

Since I was here last, I have have had a few additions.
I have a new grand-son. He arrived on Oct 4, 2013. Weighing in at 7lbs. 13ozs. , and measuring 20".
Both mom and baby are doing great. He eats about 2.5ozs. at a time. Growing like a weed already.
I also have made a couple more items for my etsy store.


I am making more items almost everyday. It is a way for me to get my sewing therapy in while, home-schooling my grand-daughter.
First time in my arms at 3 hours old
It would be great if you could stop by there and browse a bit. Let me know if there is something you would like to have and any new ideas are welcome.
African Leopard Black and Tan
Blue Hawaiian Hibiscus 
Sea Foam Green Batik
 Well I need to get back to business. Thank you for visiting. Please do return.

News from Everest Ranch

Hi there, For those who haven't been here before, Thank you for stopping by, and for those who have in the past, Thank you for coming back.
I have been busy with many different things.
I have been trying to get somethings going for better therapy  and some payoffs.
I still home school and now baby-sit my new grand-son who is almost walking on his own.
But I started my own Etsy shop. I was making the items for my daughter's etsy shop. Things just got hectic. And well now she is about to have her first baby and I Need to do this for myself.
So I opened it about a week ago now and hope to have good results with it. I made all of Hope-n-Motions wallets. Also many of the aprons and bags. I guess I did a lot.
So with a little bit of time on my very busy plate, I now have a shop to run and keep stocked.
If you want to get a special handmade-one of a kind item, quilter's wallet, or other item that will be coming soon. Then stop by my shop and see what is available.
Hope you like what you see and if you have ideas, please let me know.
 Thank you again for stopping by and hope you stop by my etsy shop as well.


Here are a few of the items.
Women's Laurel Leaf 

Black & Grey Snake

Aqua Marine Blue Turtle

I will do my best to post more often.

Remembering My Friend- Carol

I just want to say that as we live our lives for today, that time flies past us.
One of my very dear friends went home to be with the Lord before this last Christmas and it took all of who love her for a spin.
 This past weekend she was laid to rest at sea. She will be remembered by all who knew her, because she left an impression on all who met her.
She was one who would give you all she could, but if she needed something she didn't always demand it.
 She was so funny at times, as she grumbled about what she truly believed in.
She wasn't happy about where this country was going and wasn't afraid to let you know about it. She believed in the Savior and was sure to tell you about Him if you would listen, but wouldn't push Him on you.
She had more sewing machines than anyone I knew. Yet only began to sew about six maybe seven years ago.
She loved her dogs and cats and yes even her chickens. She also loved horses, but she loved flamingo's most, and PINK.
She was an avid reader and there was a list of books and authors she just had to read. She loved to share her books as well.
When ever she found something new, that excited her, she shared it with anyone and everyone who would give her the time, or not. She loved to share.
I am so pleased to know that she has been laid to rest where she wanted to go, but knowing that she is in heaven and I will one day see her again, makes me the happiest.
I will miss her until we meet again.
