I was finally able to spend the "whole" day --pretty much--
in the sewing room--yea!!!!!!!!!!!
I had gotten a panel in of Fall scenes--each block was 3 1/2 inches square and there is 9 of them---
I decided I wanted to make a table runner with them--but at first was not sure how to work it with "9" blocks--but---
Here is the first four--came out to be 12 1/2 block--just cut a bunch of 1 1/2" strips in colors that would go with the prints--and made 4-6 1/2" blocks--
Here's the other set of 4---but where is the 9th one---
and this is what it looks like with all three sewed together----
but now I am thinking I should of turned the two end ones to face up and down
instead of end to end-----oh well!!!!!!!
Have batting and backing all cut for this one--
and for the two I got down yesterday--
and project #4 is a "fussy cut" one and will also be hand pieced--got that one all cut out tonight and it is on the table to stitch!!!!
some have asked what a Library Quilt is--
Well--I get lazy at times and forget to "explain" myself each time--
Here is the Library quilt--
It is the Bouquet bom by Jenny for this year and I have it all together and am hand quilting on each day--when done I am "donating" it to the Library where I get my books---I have 5 blocks all done now--I make myself do one whole block each day--
just have the four corner blocks to do --then the binding --then some bead work--and I really want to get it done by the end of the month--or sooner!!!!
And we all know what is on the "heels" of Fall---
so look at what I got in the mail today????
I love these--those kitties are just sooooo cute--and the other two prints are from the same line--- I love the stripped one!!!
And these are just soooo pretty--I love red at Christmas time--
I am a red and green Christmas nut!!!!!
the real red one on the left is from the 12 days of Christmas and will go with the layer cakes that I won a couple months ago--and the white and red one goes with a line I got a lot of last year and have not used yet!!!!!
Now you see why I am working so hard on the Fall things now--can't wait to get them done---I wanna get into the Christmas fabrics--at least by the 1st of October!!!!
How are you doing on your Fall projects????
or are you just "skipping" those and going right in to the Christmas mode?????
I have learned that the holidays waits for no man--nor no women---
it comes just like regular clock work whether we are ready or not!!!!!!!
Ahhhhh---now about the puppies--
your answers and advice was really kinda funny as each had a different idea in a way--especially about whether to get a male or a female!!!!
the first little girl is about 2 hour drive from here--at a rescue site--yet they want over $250 for her and a big application to fill out!!!
Winston is in Texas--yep--and I would not let him go on a plane with out an adult!!!!
so I would have to fly down there---
the third one---is near the Pa/Maryland border on the west corner---the owner is a guy and he has dropped the price to $300.00 and he said he had her "shaved"---my heart does go out to this little lady---but??????
I really am looking but really can't get one until around the first of November---
and I know it means walking them 3 times a day or more---but like today---other than going over to little sisters for a minute I was inside all day--and I have seen myself be inside for 4-5 days in a row---so??????
Well--that's all folks for tonight!!!!!!
