I have gotten some sewing done!! Thanks to the fact that my scrapbooking supplies are off my cutting table. I was able to cut and add the last four borders to Mr. B's quilt, Orion's Star. Not to make the backing and buy the batting. He wants high loft and tied. No cardboard quilting for him. He calls quilt that are quilted relatively close as cardboard quilts. Of course we differ on that opinion. But since it is his quilt I will make it his way.
You can't see the whole quilt here but you get the idea.
I am also having issues with blogger tonight, I can't type on the compose tab, only on the HTML tab, so I can't change my font size or add spaces between the picture and text. Bugging me. I did all the typical problem solving tips, shut down computer, cleaned internet cookies and stuff. Oh well.
Happy Sewing! Scraping, or whatever. Be sure to stay safe and cool this summer.

About two weeks ago I had this brilliant idea. That I needed a place to scrapbook that wasn't in my sewing room. I am not getting any sewing done because the scrapbooking is on the cutting table and I don't want to put it all away to cut fabric. Especially since I need to add outside boarders to a quilt.
|Bottom drawers with 8.5 x 11 paper|
|Middle drawer with punches|
|Middle drawers and work area|
|Closed and Company Ready|
My cutting table is all cleaned off and I am going to go cut boarders now.
Have fun today! Happy Stitching or Scraping!

I severed my mission in the Bolivia Santa Cruz Mission from July 5, 1979 to January 5, 1981. I had this picture made for me by a sister in Guayarmerin, Bolivia. She made it on a treadle sewing machine and all by free motion. I had it in a frame for years but decided it needed to be in my Mission scrapbook.
This page has some pictures of the actual river and the boats. It is the Rio Mamore and the ride was about 30 minutes to cross over to Brazil. I traveled there and worked there for about 9 days as a Welfare Missionary.

On this first page, I have my grandmother on her graduating from nursing school. I hate it when I finish a page, and see one of my page elements is crooked. I never see it until it is on my computer screen. Anyway, she was a nurse, so was my Mom who raised me was a nurse and I worked as a nurse for 46 years, making our combined history of nursing in my family a 107 years old.
Below is my younger brother, his wife Kathy & their first son Kevin. Good looking family.
There are also some pictures of the younger me, making an appearance as Aunt Mary.
Hanging with Aunt Mary!
