Two more tops for project jimmy. we had a great day, the all come over and we watched soccer and golf most of the day. I tried to sew the one top together and must of ripped twenty times , I don't like jack. so I'm just going to go read. have a nice fathers day.
I saw this pattern on KathyHolland'sblog inspired by antique quilts and wanted to use red white and blue. i had the back ground fabric left from a quilt back as well as the stars .the red was a strange buy at a shop in Bethlehem, pa shop. but works. totals tops 7. now to watch some soccer with john . then clean my room up.
