My Son wanted me to make him a cover for his new tablet.  I took the measurements 
                            So I  chose Black and red material.
                           It  fits so happy.
                      The front,     Closed up.
                                   The back.
 The green one I had made before.
  Here they are all  closed and protected.

This is  another book by Walter Lord with the same title A Night to Remember but
it tells how the survivors  got  in the life boats and the names of the people and the
ones who swam and were picked up and got in the life boats. Also how the Carpathia
ship didn't believe the Titanic need help. How they went full steam to get to them but
were too late the Titanic had sunk with just life boats and people swimming in the
cold water. It took 4 hours to collect them. All the band members were lost because
they played till it sank. The book has many actual pictures of the passengers.

 Walter Lord interviewed 60  survivors  from the Titanic. He tells all about how no body believed the ship would sink. The water was terrible cold and many swam till they were lifted in to life boats.Some of the people were very rich one lady left over $11,000.00 worth of jewelry on the ship. One man $200,000.00 in stocks and $400,000.00 in bonds. The ship that finally got their signal did not believe they needed help.THIS IS A GREAT BOOK if you are interested in the TITANIC.. This has the list of passengers. Real names of the persons and their experience of what they lived through. I also read THE GIRL WHO CAME HOME  the names were changed in that book Hazel Gaynor wrote the book it is great too how a lady never told her story till her Great Grand daughter wanted to write about it for college credit.

Pot Holders

This disappearing Hour Class Block

This disappearing Pin Wheel Block

Disappearing 4 Patch Block


 November is here and the chill is in the air. I spent a week end with Park View  Christian Church Ladies at a quilting retreat at Round Lake near Loundonville. I had a wonderful time making new friends and taking 7  classes. I made some more pot holders. I learned how to make the 10 minute table runner, which took me 6 hours in between all the classes. Made a Sewing Tool Caddy.  I also worked on my Wedding Dress Blues Quilt. I taught a class on making a  wallet to hold credit cards, Steno Pad cover, and grocery bag holder. It was an enjoyable 4 day week end.

 These are pink although they look yellow. The FFA of Northwestern School sold them last year.
They are over a year old and are still as solid and firm as when my son got them. They have a little
green on them now. but are still PINK in color. Very Odd.
