He just brightens my day...


This cutie-patootie is often found under the long arm. Here, drawing, and there, doing some schoolwork. I have a trundle bed under there for when the company overflows the guest bedroom. Among other things... Nothing makes Abe happier than a fresh quilt on the frame that he can "hide" under. This quilt is giving me grief. I put the borders on and I must say there was a huge amount of "stretchage" and now I have some pretty big waves. What was a girl to do when the quilt was 5" longer on one side than the other? So... I may have to knock off the borders when I'm done. Too bad it isn't my quilt. Ain't that the way it always goes? sigh.
On a brighter note... the cold that I was wrestling with is almost down for the count. Still in my head, but not nearly as bad and I might be able to skip the nap today. Maybe. I have all 10 dresses sewn up for the girls and now I just need to dig out the machine that does automatic button holes- it's under the longarm...somewhere. Then there are 6 pinafores... I finished all the blocks for the wedding quilt- just need to join those together- it's gonna be a pretty one, if I do say so, myself. Hope everyone that is snowed in has a big supply of thread and lots of good hot cups of tea.

If it were your quilt it would be square (or at least squarer. Love your under the long arm camper..he's brighten anyone's day, I'd say.

Isn't he a cutie?!! I love your valentine-y header. And those "Anne" dresses are adorable. Is there a pattern or did you just wing it?

And yes...cutie patootie is exactly what came to mind when I saw Abe under the longarm. Must be quite an adventure under there, eh!

You've been so busy...and under-the-weather?! How do you do it, girlfriend?! Love the girls' dresses!

Love and hugs to you....

Remember when Ian and Boo used to scoot around under there in their footie PJ's , cleaning up all loose threads?

Miss you!

He looks like fun company! And loosing teeth, oh my! My boy is 6 1/2 and still has all his baby teeth. Oh boy - they do grow fast, don't they? I hope you feel better soon. And 10 dresses, oh my! But - I often sew several of the same pattern and tell people - it is just as easy since you have everything out anyway. I am sure the girls will love their new frocks! Cheers! Evelyn
