I was working hard here at home and never spent even a thin dime!!!!
Not even on the Internet!!!!!
Last night before I went to bed and then again in the middle night when I was up for awhile--
I got 2 more little mittens knitted up--
these two do fit the wood key chain--
but my favorite is still that little 'blue' one!!!
are you ready--
I got another 'ufo' finished--
this is the new one to go with the new set of wall hangings for outside my apartment door--
I made another one last year--and donated it to the Library--
then I missed it so did one for me--but it did not get hand quilted until this year!!!!
And while I was in the sewing room sewing on the binding for Sunbonnet Sue, here, I also got two other quilts ready to hand quilt--
the first one is one I did a month or so ago--
with one of the new Christmas lines for this year--
I have only 'pinned' it--
will try to quilt it that way--but If I have problems I will baste it and get rid of the pins!!!!
And I got this one 'pinned'--
remember this one--it has taken me two Christmas seasons to do all the work on the top--
lots of hand applique on this one--it may take all month to just do the hand quilting on this one!!!!
Now for some more Turkey news--
these 'Turkeys' grow on you--so be careful--
Here is the pattern--
the main tail feather on the turkey and on the leaf--take a new E.B.'s ruler--
but everything went well with making the blocks--except for the color choices of fabric and that is my problem at times--colors!!
Well remember I did get one all done yesterday--
I kept looking at him and the more I looked at him--
the more I fell in love with him--
so while the threads for the applique pieces where still out--
I did the second one!!!
Still not sure how I want to finish them off--
but--I have decided they will be put away until next year--
and who knows--maybe there will be babies next fall when I get them out!!!!!!!!
And here is how 'wore out' Miss Gracie got today just watching me--
Welllllll--she did chase my 'toes' under the bed where I was pinning the quilt tops and she did follow me from room to room to keep an eye on me--
I mean -- she would not want to miss anything!!!!
Don't forget to get alittle 'extra' rest this week end--
cause from then on it is 'full steam' ahead for the next holiday!!!!!
Hugs, Di and her ball of fur!!!!
