..today is a 'calendar' picture day in November...the world around my corner, looks like this. The temps are hovering in the high 30's but snow sputters and spits occasionally. A day for reflecting or reading, cleaning one's stash or baking cookies.
No good news here either, and worse to come with the holidays approaching. At least from this angle it looks good *S*
The new bag pattern I picked up at the quilt show. Not a good picture on the pattern, but the bag is gorgeous. It's embellished along that top row with yo-yo's...an all together neat compact bag. I asked DD#1 if she would like something like that, and I now have pulled jewel tones for the 2.5" squares. Black for an accent and lining I think.And one more from the Hudson Show....a very simple snow ball-9 patch, but with Betty Boop in the center, it was such a fun quilt. One shouldn't underestimate the impact of a snow ball/9 patch if you have a great novelty fabric for that center. And speaking of snowball centers, I saw the MOST wonderful snowball center with an unusual set over at Ms. Jan's blog.
She made it for her newest grandson, Alex and it's a really awesome quilt. Benjamin is pretty terrific too, great picture of him...pop over and have a look. It's back last week sometime..I've master the name linking, but still am unsure how to link you to the actual post *VBS*.
Not much sewing has happened, despite my fervent desire of Thuraday. Friday and the State inspection came and went, and I seem to be in the "move it" mode. Had coffee with Betsy yesterday(deer season has begun...ug!) Stopped at the nursing home to drop of a bag full of puzzles for the residents who like doing them. Ended up having coffee with Jean...LOL.
I have been cleaning and folding fabric in my sewing room today. I've rounded up 11, at last count, tops that needed to be put on hangers and have backing made for them. Those are just the small ones, bigger ones are folded in a dresser drawer. I see that I should get busy and machine quilt up a couple of these smaller ones, and also get a box off to Linda J for the WTIL project. Doesn't look like I'll be running out of things that need doing any time soon.
Moving It Forward
