What I've been Doing

I have been working hard sewing. As a novice quilter I bravely took this project on for All Stitched Up. A customer had the women at her daughters baby shower design these letters and my job was to put them together into a quilt. I think it's a wonderful gift for Mom and baby. The grandmother picked out the fabric and I did the sewing. It was good fun. I have really been getting back into sewing. Next is figuring out how to put the quilt together and quilt or tie.
I have to tell you this is the coolest house plant I've had in ages. I bought this at my local farm shop. It cost a little more that a head of lettuce and we've had fun putting the leaves in our sandwiches. What could be better than a kitchen plant that you can use.

Block two of the Saturday Sampler. My friend and I did our squares together this time and it was a fun afternoon. I have become friends with a seam ripper thanks to all your encouragement. We saw the small quilt of all these squares and it's beautiful. I'll take a picture to show you.
I'm skipping the bathroom pictures. I don't know what crazy lady thought now would be a good time to do this. Between my jobs and holiday life I've been going slowly on this. So far my husband is finished spackling old cracks and I'm washing the wallpaper paste off the walls. Hopefully when I actually get to paint it will finish up quickly.

Happy Thanksgiving to you!

You've been so busy. I'm best friends with my seam ripper too. I should wear it around my neck. Your quilts look so beautiful. That mother-baby combo is going to treasure your creation.
