Another Quilt is in the books

I used a blanket stitch for the binding on this quilt, it doesn't show up well in the photo but turned out really cute.

My Brother in law is a retired fire chief with the Miami/Dade fire department, when I saw this material I knew it would be perfect for his first Grandson who is now 5 months old. Our BIL retired from station #6, the fabric has designs that say ladder #6, perfect!!

This afternoon my Sister and BIL came by to hook up hubbies travel TV for me, our monster of a TV in the family room made a huge POP noise Sunday night (sounded expensive). I don't watch much TV but I do like to keep up with the weather and news, having the itty bitty TV working now feels like a luxury! HA Unlike many families we have only one TV by choice, even when we had all the kiddo's home it was one TV for us. Now that our girls are on their own I wouldn't venture to guess how many they have in their own homes :(, it just seems like such a waste of time to me.
The rest of the week will be filled with the little girls and maybe squeeze in a little catch up sewing until the weekend when I hope to do some butt kicking work on a pile of projects that await my attention. I also have an ever growing pile of tomatoes that need to be worked up and canned into something, maybe tomorrow night I can knock that dreaded job out. As well as some MAJOR organizing the the scrap/sewing room, what a durn mess that is turning into!!!


  1. Such a cute quilt!! :) Love the bright colours!

    I'm not big on tv either... I probably watch 2-3 hrs a week, then maybe a movie or two. Other than that, it's off. If it wasn't for hubby I wouldn't bother with cable. lol! But he works hard & enjoys it, so it stays!

  2. Sounds like we have about the same amount of TV time! Ha, Except for football season when our set goes on for college football Saturday AM until the last game that night
