FW 1930s Grandma

Block 39 GrandmaHello Everyone! Well here we are at my day for posting in the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sampler Quilt Sew-along, The day after Thanksgiving for those of you living in the USA. I have seen so many beautiful blocks in all kinds of fabric combinations that you can view in the Facebook Group. This is the first of four post I will be doing over the next year. I am a Blogger of the week. Exciting and scary at the same time. I am very grateful to the Fat Quarter Shop, and Gnomeangel for giving me the opportunity to participate as an official blogger. The letter for this block from a woman of later age really hit home for me. She reminded me of my grandma. Grandma came to live with use when I was 2. She had married young, raised 5 children, on a farm not 5 miles from her parents farm, her birthplace. When the last child graduated from high school and married she came to live with us to help care for me while my parents worked. She was a strong woman who had never left…

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving! Hello all! Family home to eat and hunt so as a record my 24 years old baby girl got the first buck for the family today. Good to see her looking so happy beating her Uncle and cousin to get the first deer. If you don't hunt I apologize for the picture. But for the record our family hunts for food that we eat through out the year. We are not trophy hunters but meat eaters.Enjoy your holiday and I'll be back Friday!© COPYRIGHT 2012 - 2015In The Boon Docks. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED. Create and be unique - Lisa

I decided I would make a quilt for my cousin and his wife as my project. The two lines of hearts show how their love will endure the test of time. Every year my cousin and his family come for the week of Thanksgiving including last year when my husband had a heart attack the Saturday after. This quilt is giving thanks for all the love and help Jessie (my cousin) gave us in the days and weeks that followed. As you can see below my husband is very lucky…

Lifetime Health Checks

Lifetime Health ChecksOver the last couple weeks and coming months I am having medical checkups to insure I am healthy. So far so good.
I have a great team of doctors who told me it is time for X-rays, GYN Pap, Mammogram, Ultrasounds, Colonoscopy, Radio Frequencies, Nerve Blocks, Trigger Point Injections, and anything else they might think of over the coming months. Mobility is an ongoing issue for me. I am undergoing procedures to hopefully help increasing it and decrease the amount of medication I take daily . Better mobility means more sewing! Definitely worth it. During this time I will slowing down a bit in my participation in the Farmer's Wife 1930s Sew along and possibly blogging. I will try to post blocks when I can get them done. This last week (week 6) I didn't completed any blocks. I really missed my sewing time but I did have 2 doctors appointment and a radio frequency procedure on my neck. I am working on the Addie block so I can participate in Angie's …
