This and That from Thanksgiving

Here are a few more photos from our Thanksgiving trek to see Kevin.  Aimee was able to go to her folks -- her grandma had been sick and Aimee wanted to spend time with her.  And Thanksgiving day with Jenny, Brian and the girls.
 I embroidered shirts for Sophia, Natalie and Emmalina, S&N's cousin who was there for Thanksgiving. Darn, the pink shirts are bright! 

Hum, they were snacking on cheese and crackers.  But, I'm taken with the similar expressions on Sophie's and Peka's face. (Yep, for some reason she calls him Peka. Or is that Peeka?)

I love the look of this bed and the quilt on it.  I made this quilt for Kevin the summer before he went to college. It is all flannel and that was before lots of print flannels were readily available.  I got quite a few of them in Lancaster, Pa while I was attending a retreat.  Oh shoot.  That means the quilt I am hand quilting is at least 10 years old.  Maybe it will come out this winter again.  I'm tickled that Kevin and Aimee are using it on this bed.  It looks so good with the iron bed. The pattern is by Terry Atkinson.  (If you want to know which book, email me as I need to actually look at the books to see which book it is in.  But I would be happy to let folks know. )

That's it for today.  I'm still working on Clue #1 of Bonnie Hunter's Mystery, Easy Street.  And, I'm still working on the units for Scrap Squad #6.  Have I mentioned I am making it queen size?  Yikes.  I'm hoping all the units will be together by the end of the week.  I'll keep you posted.

Happy Quilting All!  


  1. Peeka is a sweet and memorable name. I hope it endures as she ages.

    Your quilt does look wonderful with the iron bed.

  2. The best kind of names are the ones the kids come up with themselves! :-)

  3. I love Kevin's quilt!! Did he use it in college?? I'm so afraid my kids will hate what I make for them!! ;)

  4. I love seeing quilts being used too!! Very cool embroidery shirts... I like Bright pink!
