My Hobo Pocketbook

When I was at one of the quilt shows I saw this Hobo Pocketbook pattern ... I fell in love with it and decided to make one for me... I made this pocketbook in November.... I was having computer issues so, I was not able to post this... Everyone stops me and tells me that love it and where I got it... When I went home for Thanksgiving my Aunt and her girls all wanted one... Now I have five more to make... I guess I will be busy for a while...Hugs :)


Jacob's Quilt

My grandson out grew his quilt I made him some time ago... So, I made this football quilt for him .... The pattern is called "Disappearing Nine Patch".... If you click you can get a better look... Jacob's colors for his team is gold and burgundy.... The green is the grass, light blue is the sky, the brown is the texture of the football and the gray is the color of his sweatshirt.... This quilt will fit his new bed that is full size... :)

I also made two pillow cases for him... He will have one at his Dad's house as well at his Mom's house... Jacob was so excited to get this quilt that he crawled under it right away.... Then he brought it up to his bedroom and put it on his bed .... A friend of mine (Lisa P.) quilted it for me because it was just to big to do on my machine... I will defiantly say Jacob was happy with his Christmas gift... Hugs :)

Christmas Eve

Jacob and his sister were decorating a Gingerbread House... Jacob is waiting his turn and he was pretending to take a bite out of it.... My Grandson was eating more icing than putting it on the house... :)

Jacob was pleased in how it came out... He had both thumbs up... He did more decorating on the tray before he was finished... :)

I have to share this picture of my son... He was cooking our dinner... While he was getting the ham together for Christmas dinner, He cut the netting off the outside of the ham and put it on his head... he said he did not want to get hair in the food... He is always doing some funny.. I just love him ... Hugs :)

My Trip to the Amish Country

I went on a trip to Lancaster PA in November.... There were 23 of us ladies who took this trip... We shopped and shopped.... We ate in 4 Amish homes... They were all wonderful host and served wonderful dinners... Here is the sign we saw as we entered Intercourse... Enjoy the pictures....:)

We saw a lot of these buggies, this is what the Amish families use for transportation...:)

It was wash day when we were driving through the towns... :)

This is a very popular spot to shop... This was in Intercourse town.... We all had fun shopping... :)

This gal was getting around on her scooter.... :)

This is on of many schools for the Amish children... This school is from first grade to eight grade... The children for all grades go to the one school... They only go to school til the eight grade....There are many around because the children all walk or take there scooters to school... :)

Here are some of the children at recess,,, Ther were playing kickball... :)

I will post more later... There are so many pictures I took... You can not take pictures of the Amish folks because they do not want their picture taken... The farms land were beautiful and goes for miles and miles... Hugs :)
