    Red face FOOTBALL WIDDOWS QUILT---what are you making

    I decided last week at the beginning of football season to start an epp quilt. figuring it'll take me all season and then some to finish, maybe into the baseball world series even. so, last yr. I did a gfg in 3/4" hexes. this yr it's a scrap quilt in 3" equilateral triangles. that means the side is 3".

    so has anyone committed themselves to making a quilt during football season???? makes the time go quicker, and you get something at the end of the season

    I used to embroider tea towels during the season as gifts--haven't started anything yet this season. I finished
    a rail fence for my granddaughter today, so I'll have to think about what comes next!

    I'm prepping fabric for a quilt for DGD for Christmas -- will do serious sewing on it at a retreat next week-end. Then have an I Spy for DGS also for Christmas I need to do. That would be great for me. Guess I could finish ANY one of my 60+ UFO's. LOL!! Just finished Bonnie Hunter's Fun with Bricks in a queen size -- still needs to be bound. Love scrappies!

    I went shopping! I bought shoes and fabric! Had a great time. I usually sew during a football game. I am not a sports fan.

    Trying to finish up some UFOs and fix my sewing machine. My 40 yo Singer 758 broke gears for the second time in a year; >$200 at shop - trying to see if I can fix it myself.

    I am not a football fan and neither is my husband. He's more of a car fan but not into races much. BUT he does like to watch auto rebuilds and I just retreat to the sewing room or computer. He does like the weekly shows and this is the new season for most of the shows. I don't care for all of the shows so when that comes on I retreat again. Oh well! No biggy!

    Not a pro football fan at all. Yesterday I worked on cleaning and organizing my sewing room. From this point on, I will work on UFO s (both Christmas-y and not). I do not make gifts for people so no pressure there.

    I usually try to save my hand work for the games so I can watch them. I have to keep my DH from having a heart attack when his team is losing!
