I had some fun today--
right here at home!!!!
and I even made it into the sewing room--

and now --
no fainting on me--
just grab some chocolate instead!!!!!
After a couple of those daily household chores--
I went to the sewing room--
and the first thing I needed to do was decide on which fabrics I wanted to use for the "Some kind of wonderful" SAL that Chookyblue is doing next!!!
and I think I will mainly use this one--
"Juliet's song by Anna Fishkin for Red Rooster--
It may be an older line--but I love the colors they are a perfect shade for me--
I will add others for the background and maybe another fabric here or there!!

then I found fabric for the binding on the frog wall hanging and am happy to say it got sewed on
not to turn it and stitch it down--then you get to see it!!!

Did a mend --rather a hem job--
love this new nightgown--but it was several inches too long--
yet I loved the ruffle--so just took up alot of the fabric above the hem and sewed it--
now it is perfect!!!

I even got outside as it was another nice day here--
did need a sweater though--
went to the Health food store for some 'health food"!!!!!

Over the week end I did hand quilt a lot on the Gardner's Journal quilt--
and it felt good to hand quilt again--I am hopefully about half done with it--
it does have alot of hand quilting to it--soooooo!!!!!

and now of course is the question--
what to work on in the sewing room--
1. I have two fall/thanksgiving projects I like to do--
one is a table runner and one is a wall hanging--
2.I found a Christmas quilt that needs quilting--
do I set the Gardners Journal aside and do the Christmas one???
3.I have the Schnibbles pattern 'Full House' and want to do that--
or do I be good and do the fall or a Christmas project--
Oh my I am even confused now--what to do??????
I also have been still working on knitting and crocheting projects
for the classes and such--But I am moving those 'reports' over to Di's workbasket site--
Just click on the title on the top side bar and it will magically take you there!!!!

Well--be good now--
from Miss Gracie and her mom!!!!
