Stars-- most all this week--
and here is where they are--
The actual 'star' blocks are so easy and quick to stitch--
but then putting them together takes time and alot of stitching!!
and figuring out where to sew the next block on--
is anyone's guess--I guess!!!????
that 'piece' of black on the right side--is--
Miss gracie helping me take the photo?????

But watching these cute birdies out the window here in the living room is her main job!!!

It really is fall here now--and it is even very cool today--so it even feels like fall!!
Do you realize that Halloween is only about 10 days away---
How'd that happen!!!!!

By a land slide--
this one got basted first--
and I even started hand quilting it this morning--

And I got this one finished--
I really like the colors of this one and enjoyed doing all the hand quilting on it--
Here is how I did the border rows!!!

I have also been working on the hand pieced star quilt--
so it is now much larger--
but forgot to take a picture of where it is at now--
I do find it challenging to know where to sew the next star on--
wonder what kind of shape and size I will get in the end!!!!

So is everyone joining me in working on Christmas????
and if so what are you working on????

Hugs, di and miss gracie

WHAT TO DO??????

Do I baste some more just regular--anytime quilts--

do I work on Christmas quilts--there is 4 of them in this pile--
2 large ones and 2 smaller ones!!!!

So help me decide--
Christmas or Regular?????????

got some good reading --
one came in the mail---
The newest book from Michele May at the Raspberry Rabbit!!
can't decide which rabbit to do first--or whether to do another one of her great designs????

And I went shopping yesterday --
and these two magazines jumped into my cart--
Have enjoyed both!!!

and someone wants to say 'Hi'--
My very own--Miss Gracie!!!

Have a great wonderful day where ever you live--
hugs, di and miss gracie

four letter word--
and I do like it--it's just what comes with it--
that I don't care for--
but this year even that is missing--
here it is a week into Oct and I still have to have the air conditioner running!!!!

I did get larger quilt all basted--so now I have to get out the next one to do--
think I have a couple Christmas ones that should probably be next????
and the quilt that I have been working on with hand quilting I --
I did get finished--now to sew some binding on it!!

I have been concerned about how 'slow' I have been working lately--
then a lovely blog friend-Joy--sent me an email that said--
slow is better than stop!!!
thank you Joy!!!
Hugs, di and miss gracie
