Got this one ironed yesterday.
Maybe i can get it quilted this weekend.
I am trying to do at least two or more log cabin blocks every day so yesterday put the eight up and started making them again.
yesterday all i did was go get a haircut so should have gotten more done. But it was my night to mop and clean. At least i got finished with that and today i feel awful! Maybe i did to much! I can hear my mom saying that!
Drinking a cup of tea hoping to get some energy.
Have a great weekend

We ran around yesterday so i didn't think I would get any sewing done.
But last night I made a few more blocks.
We came back and paid out taxes , car and property and ran a bunch of errands and bought groceries.
By the time we got home it was to late to go to the meeting where they gave our quilt to the winner and then they were going to give the 390.00 we raised to the fire dept.
I guess their will be pictures in the paper. I will post them when I see them.
On the Dr. yesterday morning , they said that drinking English breakfast tea would help you lose weight. So bough some and tried it !
I think it has lots of caffeine. I didn't tire and was able to sew after all that running around.
We will see about the lose weight thing!!!!

I see one out of these four that i will have to redo.
I laid it over, how i don't know!
I am going to have to set me up a system and do them one section at a time.
Yesterday the mail man brought me these.
Beautiful fabrics. and it came really fast to be coming across the ocean.
We went yesterday and picked up Tommy's new glasses. and the our fall colors are vanishing fast.

This is Luke's sister. You remember him staying one day.
I like it a whole lot better.

This is Vickie holding up Sharon's Quilt. She couldn't be there but she brought her quilt to me to take to the meeting.
It is beautiful! She did a really good job.
We had a great time as usual! Last night we added food! Bonnie made the greatest tasting cookies! So we all had to know what was in them.
Have a great weekend

I made this but think i will go back and start with a 2 1/2 inch center. This size makes it look strange.
Made last week when the sun was shining!
Isn't shining now and hasn't in a few days and after a while it gets me down. So i read instead of sewing !
Q_Bees meeting tonight so i have been gathering things up to carry down there.

I got it sandwiched!
It has a really crazy backing to it , three different fabrics sewed together.
Hoping to be able to give it to him Thanksgiving.
I love that quilt , and they sent me a pattern to make it . Hopefully after Christmas i will have time to start this beauty.
But Christmas sewing comes first.
Have a good one , cool here and cloudy. a good sewing day.

This is my brother and sis in law with their two kids and two grands with Clint's girlfriend. Mel's hubby Greg is in the hospital but his sis came up to stay with him while Mel did this.And Clint's friend is on Chemo so no hair.
He is the best brother!
We went there Saturday after the funeral of Tommy's last aunt. She was over my boss for 18 years when i worked at Best.
She was a sweet lady.
But i was getting tired after this so we came home . I nearly feel asleep before bed time. Then was awake during the nigh from hurting. to much standing on coment floors in my life.

We stayed at home yesterday and rested.
I rested by sewing!
Started putting together Mark's quilt. I still needed to make some more blocks but hope to find the time this weekend to do it.
It is certainly going to be the brightest quilt i have every made.
Have a good weekend

Next row on Mark's quilt.
I had ordered some more battening from Walmart and picked it up at the store saving shipping .
I will have to buy some more to finish all my Christmas things i am sure!
I will have some secret sewing between now and then. But Mark's is a late birthday present!
It's safe to talk about it.
It takes a whole lot of battening!
I had better get to work!

Our only trick or treaters last night.
I tried to give all of the candy to them so i wouldn't eat the rest of the candy but their mother wouldn't let me.
Last year we didn't have a one.
We love our great grands. Our grands have gotten to old to go around for candy.
Have a good one
