T-shirt quilts

My friend, Tammy, came through again.  This is the double sided T-shirt quilt that I just quilted for her.  Tammy sent me photos of it so I could share it with y'all.

It is cold over here!!!  37 degrees is cold for Central Texas.  Been having lots of family things going on, mostly in the middle of the night.  :(  Not a fun time when Mom calls EMS because she is cold.  :(  She is beginning to grieve more, so that will mean we have to watch all that is going on.

I did quilt a quilt for Tammy, but didn't take a photo.  It was a double sided T-shirt quilt.  It is back in her hands, so that is good.

I used my gift card from winning a UFO Challenge to buy fabric for a quilt I'm testing (I can't show you the pattern or material).

I finally finished un-sewing the baby quilt and now I need to quilt it again.  I'll not take out Baptist Fan quilting again.  LOL

I have a robot quilt to quilt also.  Between loading, quilting and cutting, I hope to get some cleaning done.

November brings a new chapter in our lives.  A chapter without my Father with us.
Last year

In Albuquerque when Jon was little

Their 50th anniversary -- they made it to 63 years together.

My favorite of Little Miss Ashley flirting with Grandfather.

The holidays and life won't be the same, but there are sooooo many happy memories with my Dad, Ray Mitchell!

I am focusing on getting myself back into the studio, because it will make me feel better.  I know Mom will need some help, but I'm needing some peace and quiet in my studio creating and grieving.

Maybe Dad be enjoying all the music in heaven.  We love you and miss you.
