Granny Is Part Of My Fridays Fave Five

Fridays Fave Five is hosted by Susanne!

The purpose of this FFF is to have an attitude of Gratitude

for the week we just came through and to name 5 of your favorite things this week.


1. My Sweet Granny

I walked in her livingroom and she didn't hear me come in.

Looks like she is pondering what to do next on this quilt.

When she realized that I was there she told me to go into the quilt room and get the latest quilt out. She actually had 2 but I have already sold one locally. This is one of the best quilts that I have ever saw Granny do. It is a scrappy quilt! It is so pretty. It has a pink backing. This quilt will be on my sidebar for sale if anyone is interested. UPDATE: Quilt is sold.

Here she is showing me the next quilt that she already has started.
I am so thankful for my little 96 year old Quilting Granny.
I love her so much.


2. My Design Wall
I worked hard in my sewing room this week and I was determined to get my design wall up so I can see what I am working on. I am so thankful that it is up and looks great if I do say so myself.

3. Snow Days
We only got a dusting but the temps were so cold that my frozen pond was covered in white before the snow even hit the ground. I love snow as long as I have electricity and Coke!


4. The innocence of a child....my grandson.
Brother asked, "Granny, Can I sew too?"
I said, "Of course you can baby."

5. A Pan of Hot Corn Bread
Yummy!

That is a beautiful scrappy quilt. She does very nice work. I am thankful for my internet friends.

Susanne said...

Your grandmother's quilt is lovely. I love the colors. I am totally in awe that she is 96 and still quilts!

Love your quilting wall too. You ladies are very talented. And how sweet of your grandson to want to sew too.

I've only ever made cornbread once in my life. We had it with chili I believe. It was delicious.

Val,
I would like to buy Granny's #40 quilt. How pretty. She is really getting creative!

I am thrilled that Brother wants to sew. It is not just a girl thing, it is an creative outlet. Keep encouraging him!

Your design wall looks wonderful! I can't believe how creative you are getting in that sewing room of yours!

I am thankful for your friendship, and I am thankful that you share Granny with us.
Be blessed, my friend!
