I hope everyone had as wonderful a Thanksgiving as I did. Family and great food. Can’t get much better. After clean-up my sister and I headed to Wally World. I wanted to get new movies for my sewing room. I like to play animated movies while I sew. I like the background music. So I got about 8 new movies for $1.97 each and , ta da this for $9.95
So excited. I use permanent markers to make my quilt labels. Now they can be in technicolor!
I wouldn’t have minded to have gone black Friday shopping only quilt shop hopping, but my sister gets cross-eyed when I start talking quilting. She has no interest in sewing. Instead we had a great time at Menards, Kohl’s and Bed Bath & Beyond. Two days shopping, no sewing, I’m having withdrawals. Today hopefully will be spent in my sewing room. I still have not finished my November list. I’m getting there, just not finished. I need to focus on The List.
UFO for November – almost completed. Need to head to quilt shop for border fabric. Then the top will be finished. Will quilt it later.
The Grand Slam – Apparently there are 4 different types of Turkeys in the United States. Hunters try to bag one of each. This is called a grand slam. It is considered a great accomplishment. Well my brother has achieved this accolade. Guess what? He wants a quilt to commemorate his experience. I went on line and found these descriptions defining the differences of each type of turkey. I will use these while trying to design the quilt top. Let me say this. I am not an artist. I will try though.
Currently under my needle…. I am finishing prepping Block # 4 of a Bed of Roses. Hoping to get this finished today. Then I will start prepping the final border for A Boy and A girl. Then November list will be completed. Yeah!
The Doxie quilt is finished and gifted. She loved it.
I also completed my Long Time Gone monthly installment. Those cross blocks were a challenge for me. I’m not sure but I think it has to do with me getting dizzy when I look at kaleidoscope type things. Placing the square and strips to achieve the cross pattern were similar to that for me. But I got it done! Yeah for me.
Here’s hoping everyone has everything they need and are blessed with love and kindness.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
