Snow days and new toys.


I bought this quilt frame this fall.  I finally got to use it Monday when we had a snow day.



I used this quilt as my first practice quilt to quilt.



I finished quilting this quilt tonight.  This quilt is made with t-shirts and sweatshirts that were decorated by a woman’s mother.  Her mother passed away and the  woman wanted something done with the shirts, so this is what I came up with.


Projects from earlier in the fall.


I was hired to embroider on this blanket for a third grader that lost both of her parents within 10 weeks of each other.  Her class at school gave this to her.


Pillows for the Taste of Edmond in December.



Burp cloths.


More pillows.


Backs of the pillows.


These are t-shirts stretched over art canvases.  They will also be sold at the Taste of Edmond.

First year teacher gifts


Before school started I was invited to a new teacher luncheon sponsored by Rose State College for Mid-del schools.  I was adopted by a business because they sat at the table I was sitting at.  Right before fall break they brought me these letters covered with paper related to cooking and sewing.


They also brought me a cookie cake that I shared with my class.

It was neat to be adopted by someone in the community.

More Halloween festivities



Jemma helped at the carnival at church.  Justin helped too, but didn’t wear a costume.




There is also trunk or treating at the carnival at church.

Dr. Phil



I know you have been waiting on pins and needles to see what Bill is for Halloween.  He’s Dr. Phil.

Game Time

IMG_20141018_105349 Saturday, Bill and I got  the opportunity to go to the OU game with some friends from church.  Unfortunately OU lost, but we had a good time.   IMG_20141018_102426 This drummer is Tanner Brown.  His parents are in our bible class.  This is the band marching into the stadium.

Man’s best friend



Today was the day we had to put Butler to sleep.  He’d been having bladder problems since June.  He’s  been with our family for about 15 years.   At this time it’s been harder on Bill and I than the kids.

RIP Butler.  You were the best dog!




A lady asked me if I would make bears out of shirts her late husband wore for her granddaughters.  This is how they turned out.  Her husband was an under sheriff for OK county, so one bear has a patch from his uniform on it’s tummy.

Another driver



Look who got his driver’s permit today!

Birthday shirt



I made a shirt for a friend for her 9th birthday.
