A Quiet Day Sewing

Hey, Y'all,
Well, I was up about 7:30 this morning and decided to tackle a little job that Mark and Allie asked of me. They are having work done in the home they bought to live in that is located in Sevierville. One of the things that they did was to wash some denim covered cushions that go on chairs on the screened in back porch. After they dried them, the cushions inside the denim were all bunched up, so they ripped the end seams of the denim covers so they could straighten out the cushions. Mark asked me if I would restitch the covers after refilling them with the cushions. That is what I tackled today.

I began the task before breakfast but had to continue it after breakfast and finished it just before two o'clock when I stopped for lunch. Much of the stitching was done by hand, and just a bit was on the sewing machine.

After lunch, I spent the rest of my time working on the quilt for my grandson, Will. (B.J.) Gramps spent most of the day in bed, and finally arose at 5 p.m. I made some supper for us and we ate supper and enjoyed some time together.

I talked to Imazo a couple of times today. She is slowly feeling a little better, but not as much as we would like her to. She was excited about getting to go to Jeff's home for supper tonight. Peggy had been home today from work and had made a roast. I was so happy for her sounding so glad. She was also excited about getting a bouquet of fresh cut tulips by way of FTD. I will be taking a pic of it tomorrow when we go in to see her and Mae and post it in my blog tomorrow evening. She was looking for the card with it when I talked to her.

Well, I am looking forward to bed tonight, hoping to get a good night's rest. Since Gramps has spent so much time in bed today, goodness knows if he will be up during the night eating cereal thinking it is breakfast time. ha.

That is about it for today. More tomorrow. This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Good Night, All. Bye for now.
