A whole day of sewing--
I finally got a full day of sewing and no interruptions!!!
so first I tackled the "'6" extra blocks for the Homespun quilt that I am working on--
Here is the first one--
Now who sewed that???
Gracie did you sew this block?????
Surely your Mommy did not sew this this "wonky" thing????
Ok I confess--it was really the new machine--
and --yes--Gracie--the fact that I can not drive straight--
But I know how to fix it--
I have my "guiding line" now--
Let's see how the next ones come out???
OH--looky looky--they are soooo much better--
and now these blocks are done--
have to decide on fabrics for the applique birds that go in the centers---
maybe next month--we don't want to rush a project that has taken us over 5 years to get this far--now do we????
Then after lunch--
I was sooo very excited cause I could start a new quilt--
a Christmas one--
with the "12 days of Christmas" layer cakes I had won--
Here is where we are sooo far--
I love making these blocks--
I have my "own" way of doing the snowball corners--
maybe some day it will make me rich when I share it?????lol
I do love all these colors--decided today that I need to pick up some aqua Christmas ornaments -too!!!!
Also did some more applique on the snowflake block--
there is alot of stitching on them!!!
And don't forget I have to "entertain" a certain young lady!!!
Ah--Di--we see a mess and alot of toys and paper balls--
but are you entertaining someone or yourself--
where is the cat????
Oh she is around here someplace--
wonder what my 'mom' is up too--
look at the mess she is making of the living room--
I hope she knows "she" is the one who is going to clean up this mess!!!
I have to do my own "cleaning"--
Then it will be time for another "cat nap"--
have fun Mom!!!!
Ok--on to the Thanksgiving menu--
we have the turkey and it is thawed and we got all the stuff for the dressing and are in the process of putting that together--and we got the Pumpkin pie, Apple pie, Mincemeat pie and the Caribbean fudge pies all made--so what's next on our shopping list????
That "red" stuff--you know the 'red" stuff that has to be on the table and you HAVE to put some on your plate -- even if you don't want to eat it--it still has to be on the plate or it isn't Thanksgiving--?????
Oh I know the Cranberry sauce--it comes two different ways--best to have both--as some folks like the Jelly kind and some like the "lumpy" kind!!!!
Ok that's today's shopping lesson--off to the Supermarket you go!!!
Hugs, Di and the napping Gracie!!!
