Another Granny Visit

Here is Granny telling us not to use that "picture taker" again!
The last few times I have been there I have forgot the camera and everytime she says, "You don't have that picture taker this time?"
Here is her sweet old sewing machine. She had been sewing before I got there.
I just loved seeing the scissors & glasses and the quilt squares right there. It is almost like I placed them there just for the picture but I promise this is how I found it.

Here she is showing me how many rows she had done that morning.
She said that she has to get 16 rows.

This is the last quilt she made.
She said she just used scraps.

Here is the one before that. This Granny is a go-getter!
She also froze homemade soup this week and froze tomatoes out of the garden.
She makes me tired. I am 54 years old and she is 95!!!!

I saw these quilts the last time I was home(7/10). She had just finished the "scrap" one and I fell in love with them both! She was tired that day but kept pressing on... just like you!

Love, Brenda
