    Saturdays are my sewing days. I homeschool Monday through Friday and Sundays are our church/family days, so while the girls have fun playing on Saturdays, I get some sewing done.

    I need to sew, however, nothing for Xmas gifts. This morning I tackled our bedroom....need to deep clean in there. At noon, DD (22) came to visit. We went out to lunch, visited a holiday bazaar, stopped in to see the grandbaby (14 weeks old), and then did some shopping at the mall. Came back to our house and DH grilled tbones for dinner. She just left to head back to her apt in Indy, an hour away. After church tomorrow, I will most definitely finish cleaning house. DD will be back on Weds and we want to go ahead and decorate for the holidays. Maybe I can find some time to sew Monday evening .

    I spent most of the day hand quilting a crib quilt for my neice's baby, born thursday! I will see her in about 3 weeks and have been working fairly casually on the hand quilting, but now the push is on!

    I have been so busy lately, and finally have a free weekend.
    Cleaning and laundry are waiting for tomorrow.
    I did some work around the house this morning, but
    this afternoon I have been spending sewing. Needed to '
    take a quick break to give my eyes and neck a break.
    Am working on some Christmas presents for family and
    friends.

    Hope others are finding time to sew today too!
    Saturdays at our house in the fall are mostly for watching football! I hope to get started on a new quilt after Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone!

    I finished binding a baby quilt today. The baby was born two weeks ago. Not too bad!

    I spent the day sharing the History of Sewing machines at a library. We took 6 machines from our collection as visual aids. Did not take any of the featherweights or 301's we have for sale cuz I just wanted the talk to be informative and not appear like a sales pitch. I did see some people pick up business cards and brochures so thinking good thoughts here! To night I sewed on a featherweight DH had refurbished today to make sure it was running nicely - making king size strip quilt for our bed. Hope it turns out ok. It has been sewn on by a lot of different sewing machines.

    I spent most of the day sewing on another Illusion quilt, two colors. I finished one last Sunday and started this one last Sunday. I would have it finished by this coming Sunday but, Wednesday I will be baking pies and dressing for Thanksgiving, then off to our country place where we celebrate a country Thanksgiving. We started this tradition about 33 years ago. We will come home about Friday noon and then I will sew the rest of the day and Saturday and Sunday. I was also doing laundry, I will do housework tomorrow and then sew some more. I sew at least a couple hours each evening after work and weekends while I do laundry nd housework. Most quilts I can make in two weeks.

    I spent most of the afternoon in the sewing room working on a purse. Turned into a total screw-up, ..don't ask. So doing laundry today will be a relief

    I was cleaning up/out my sewing room, and found so much stuff I started and didn't finish. 2 quilt tops, that I would never finish, 8-unused 1-1/2 yds of broadcloth in primary colors, so many square in a squares I couldn't count them, at least 100 - 4x4" 4 patch squares, about the same amount of Flying geese 3x6", so I bundled them up nicely, put labels on them, and took to one of our local Thrift Shops. Someone will be happy to have them, and I wouldn't use them. Have a lot more to clean out. So much stuff I forgot I had! I didn't sew tho.

    No sewing for me. Our church is having our Thanksgiving dinner today so yesterday was spent in the kitchen while washing bed clothes and putting them back on the bed. Never did get aroung to vacuuming the dog hair up off the floor.
