Hi, Everyone

Today was a good day. I got all of my wash and ironing done. Did some necessary shopping and worked on a fall table runner that I really want to finish before it is time to put my Chms things out. I made a lunch bag and started some pillow cases for a friend. I skipped Bible study so I could stay home and take care of the "trick or treaters". Now I'm going to get my book and get in bed. Good night and sweet dreams, Everyone...

Some new finishes

Hi Everyone. I have some new finishes that I would like to show you.

This evening I finally finished my Straw Man wall hanging and hung him on my back porch. I think he is cute and he needs a name. Any suggestions???

A couple of evenings ago I finished two more blocks for Steven's quilt. I messed up on one of them and put it together wrong. Everything is balanced, so I'm going to leave it as it is. The block should have been "Corn and Beans". I named my booboo "Corn and Mush". It works for me.

My last one is the first in a series of three machine appliqued "Old Time Santas". This was my first attempt at this kind of machine applique. It was interesting. I'm looking forward to doing the next two.

The weather is turning cold around here and I don't like it. We are getting lots of rain and can expect snow any time. I'm certainly not looking forward to that. The older I get the less I like cold winter weather. Alot of our pretty fall leaves have fallen already. It won't be long and I will be raking leaves in my back yard again.

I'm headed for bed shortly. Tomorrow is another work day, followed by Bible study.
Good night and sweet dreams, everyone...

More Blocks for Steven's Quilt

Yesterday I completed three more blocks for Stevens quilt. I am amazed at how good they are going together. Almost perfect points. That is really something for me. My points usually leave a lot to be desired.

Today was another busy day for me. This morning I tinkered with my embroidery machine. I want to embroider a design on one of my sweat shirts. I think I have it figured out how to set up the design. I would start stitching it out this evening, but it is sort of late right now. Maybe tomorrow.
This afternoon I was at the LQS. We did an applique project. A garden flag. It's nice. I like it. I still need to get a photo of it so I can post.
This evening I worked at JoAnn's. It was another pleasant evening. I always (almost always) have a good time there. I work with a group of nice ladies.

I have finished my cup of chilli. Now I'm going to get a cup of ovaltine and some cookies and watch a little TV before I go to bed. Good night and sweet dreams, everyone.

My Saturday

My Saturday

Hi Everyone. I spent today at the LQS doing a "craft show". There were only three vendors, so nothing spectacular happened. Very few customers came through, but I did sell an Expandale Tote/Duffle bag. That made me happy :)...

Two of us started another one of those fast Jelly Roll quilt top. My friend finished her top and was working on borders when we left. I got only these few strips sewn together.(I will post a photo) Maybe I talked to much ??? I don't think I especially like it, but it will be wonderful when it is finished.

It poured down rain again this afternoon. It can stop any time, as far as I'm concerned. We are hoping all of this constant rain doesn't turn into snow as the weather gets colder.

I'm going to get a dish of ice cream and try to sew a little and watch some TV. I'm so tired I have a head ache. I REALLY need to get to bed early tonight. Have a nice evening, Everyone...
