    Drove straight home to eastern NC from St Louis where we saw grandson in his banjo concert Thursday night. HE was Great! Left (after a stop at Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate Factory!) after 2pm and arrived home @ 7:30am. Spent most of day in bed and unpacking/laundry. Did stop on the way there at Hancock's in Paducah! Now today you will be able to hear my machine purring for sure!!

    I cut out an "Enderman" (a Minecraft creeper character; Minecraft is an online computer game) to make for my grandson for Christmas. Though sewing that black fleece may do me in!

    I am a new quilter, this is my first completed project (BOM from Craftsy). I have a number of 'goof-ups' but am still proud that I finished it, didn't become too frustrated and have something to give to my granddaughter for her first Christmas with their two newly adopted children.

    If I sew on a Saturday during college football season, I'm done by 11:00 CST. I am a football fan and a Nebraska football fanatic, so my day revolves around all the good games.

    Try the Log Cabin Quilt in a Day Pattern from Eleanor Burns. This was my first EB pattern. It is strip pieced, and you don't make one block at a time. You cut 2 1/2" x 45" long strips, sew together the center block strip (usually red, but can be any color) with the first light, then cut those into 2 1/2" segments. Sew the next light strip on these segments, then cut them . . .It goes really fast and the blocks should be squared up as you go, so the blocks are square.
    You have to try this, if you like log cabins.!

I have made several quilts I can't figure why this intimadates me so much..oh well...onward I go.

    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!
    Spent Saturday straightening up sewing room - ready to some more Christmas
    gifts as soon as Thanksgiving is over!

    Spent the morning doing work work and dusting ( when I can write my name on the furniture, I decide to dust). Wanted to quilt, but DH has decided to clean out my former sewing room in the basement, and I know to keep a low profile lol. He's informed me that I have enough fabric and batting to open a store--this from a man who added a workshop addition to the back of the garage to store all his tools and power equipment that rarely get used. Oh well, after 40 years, we have learned to ignore each other's tiny barbs . Beautiful day here in NE Wisconsin, and the Packers just won!

    I finished a small table runner & have worked on a 54 x 78 wall hanging of a Christmas tree.
