No Sew Day

Ok - did the title catch your eye?  Are you concerned about me?  I have a ton of errands to do today.  I've already crossed a bunch of things off my " to do" list ... paper work (ugh!)

I did get a package in the mail yesterday. 

I won a prize from Alpcaca With A Twist!!!! All I had to do was follow along on a KAL (knit along) and post a finished photo ... how easy was that !!!

Lots of goodies ...

I know what my Thanksgiving travel project is going to be.

It's now 9:45 - time to shower/dress and get moving ... there might be time later for a teeny bit of sewing.

Done Times 3

Yesterday was a DONE day!
1. Quilted a top that was pieced from the leftovers of the leftovers.

Yes, you read that correctly - the leftovers from the leftovers of a quilt.

2.  A flannel baby pillow, also leftovers.

The triangles are all leftovers from a baby quilt I made a while back.  I used glow-in-the-dark thread.  How fun - and it really does glow.  I took it into my dark laundry room - yep - the thread glowed.

3.  A Christmas table topper

I used glitter thread to quilt this - pretty and shiny!

All of these were delivered today to Spring Water Designs ... I have mentioned - I love my job!

Pretty OP

Another pretty OP is going out into the world tonight.

I believe this was from a Norma Campbell class that our guild had a few weeks ago.  Look at this fun back ...

Elfrieda will have this quilt bound - probably tomorrow.  She's a faster worker.

Road Trip

Nope ... I did not go anywhere. I quilted a play mat for some lucky little kid. (OP quilt).

It still needs a binding and then it will be mailed back to it's owner.  I made one for a Grandie a couple of years ago.  He loves using it with his matchbox cars.

AND ...
Another sweet baby quilt

I don't know who will get snuggled in this but it sure is cuddly. I love that it has Minkie on the back.

Bible Stories

Oops - sorry I missed yesterday.  We had a lovely relaxing Sunday which was very much enjoyed after a really busy Saturday.  

Have yo seen Debra Gabel, of Zebra Patterns, Bible Story quilt?  I don't even know if that's the name of the pattern but the quilt is awesome!  I saw Debra's at a quilt show.  I saw (and quilted!) Ruth's this past week, at MY house.

I knew most of the stories.  The detailed appliqué is wonderful.

I can't imagine even starting this project.  Ruth started it AND finished it!

It's so pretty!

No-Finish Friday

A typically busy day here and a cold one.  Well ... the weather app said it was cold, I did not put one toe out the door.  When I was thinking about this blog post, I thought I was going to write ... I wasn't nearly as productive today as I was yesterday.  But then I really thought about my day.

Just because I didn't make a list and didn't have a finish does not mean I was unproductive.

I worked in my new scarf.

Such pretty sock yarn and it will be more visible around my neck than in my shoes.

I had a nice chat with Kid#1.  She lives local but I don't get to hang out with her very often.  While we visited, I hemmed a pair of pants for a grandie.

I prepped another block for my Imperial Blooms quilt.  And worked on my Enchanted Garden a bit.

I wrapped some Christmas gifts.  These will be going to Florida with us for Thanksgiving.

Mostly - I spent the day quilting on a very involved project - lots of stops and starts and thread changes.  It's a great quilt, not mine but certainly one of those that I dream about making.
