A BIT HERE AND THERE--

This week--
unfortunately  has been another hard emotional week--
living in a Senior apt complex--
SO--
I have sorta keep my nose in  books so I don't keep 'thinking' --
about all the hurt--
But I did get the next wool block prepped--
can't believe that we are doing 'fall' blocks now!!
but I did find a neat piece of background for this fall row--
it has dashes on it --but reminds me of falling leaves!!!!

and I did get the blue log cabin block done--
to go with the cat block--

I hope to get more motivated tomorrow and get some actual sewing done--
time will tell--
Oh and I did do some hand quilting this week on a quilt--

well--sounds like another big thunderstorm is coming so best go for now--

CHRISTMAS ON SUNDAY--

REPORT--
I did work on my project--
there is alot of coloring on this--
Here is what I did--I turned one of my large cutting mats to the back--
then I got a large piece of freezer paper and taped it down and
then taped down the white fabric--that way I had a nice stable surface for coloring--
did all the white crayon first then worked on the colors--
there is alot of Christmas trees--
and I got so busy shading them with a couple green crayons--
that --
I forgot there was also to be some branches that were white for snow--
Luckily--
I had gotten this product that they mentioned in the directions--
and boy it did a great job of removing the crayon color--
though you did have to dab-dab--then get another small piece--
and dab-dab--cause once the piece of funtak got some color on it--
it wouldn't pick up more color--so I did use a bit of it--

Later I did start the embroidery on it--
got the candy cane done--
there is lots and lots and lots of embroidery on this piece!!!!!

GUESS WHAT I AM DOING????

This---
Yep--I am Happy Dancing--
Cause--
I really really did get  the Bed quilt all finished--
See the top is all sewn together--
and quilted--
and--
binding is all sewn on it--
the binding fabric is a piece that Anne in NY sent me for my Birthday--
and it was perfect--I have navy curtains in this room--
It was a 'monster' to do on my little machine and we went from Plan A--
to probably Plan J before it was all said and done--
the only thing I am unhappy about it is--
it is heavy--I had hoped it would be light weight--
as I have to take it off the bed each night and fold it up--
guess I will develop good arm muscles!!!!!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Spent a bit of time this afternoon cleaning up the sewing area,
and putting thread away and winding bobbins of the main color I use for all my blocks--
so I am ready to get back into the block of the months--
and they all came in today--
First there is the wool block-

and then the Patchwork one--
I do one 10" block and 4-5" ones--

and
for the Christmas quilt--this month is the reindeer block--
and I still need to do the blue bird for this month and a couple blue blocks--
so I have work to do--
wonder if it will keep me out of trouble around here--
probably not--
this week was a rough one--living with so many seniors is a really hard job--
no matter what one does--someone doesn't like it and causes trouble--
and cause I like to help people--
I am in trouble all the time!!!
