    i am working on finishing the border and then i think he needs more thread painting in the blue sections. He is a wall hanging so the fact that he is turning out to be a bit stiff is okay.[/QUOTE]

    Pet, oh I feel your pain as far as the shoes goes. I could not imagine life without my heels. I love them. They make me feel like I can take on the world when I am in them. I dont have many opprotunities to wear them but I make the times. I have been known to wear them to football games and such. Not really practical around here in the boonies but got have my shoe time. The pincushion I made was actually a ring holder. Just ripped out the holder and placed a cushion in there. Not sure how using an actual shoe would work. Seems like it could be almost to large of a pincushion. I guess for those that have tons of room in their sewing area. I have a pair of heels that would make a mind blowing cushion. The shoes themselves are mind blowing. I still havent mastered walking in them. One day it will happen, then off to the ballgame I will go.LOL

    Although I don't have much to show, I thought I'd share the Nov BOM that I have just finished laying out all the teensie parts to and now have to try to assemble them and come out with a 12" finished block

    Two quilts quilted today! I love, love, love glue basting with Elmers and mindless meandering. I've got it down to 1 hour and 45 minutes for a 4 x 6 quilt. But boy are my shoulders tired and sore, thank goodness for coffee!

    Wow, those of you working on tiny blocks--I'm impressed! I don't have the patience work on pieces that small. I did manage to complete everything I wanted this weekend. This is my last Thanksgiving wall hanging ready to hang as soon as I find a hanger! And I have a Christmas quilt top to add to the pile for finishing later this month. That's a completely separate goal--to finish the several quilt tops by the end of the month

    I've really enjoyed quilting with all of you this weekend. Let's plan the next one for the weekend of Dec 13-15. That should be helpful for last minute gifts. I'll keep checking in tonight to see what else people are doing.

    DebraK, I think that stars quilt will be beautiful when complete.
    Thimblebug, you are very brave!
    Toverly, congrats in the finishes.

    Here is my update. I didn't get nearly as far as I had hoped, somehow the weekends are never long enough, but progress is progress, yes?

    I finally finished that red quilt!!! All that's left, besides taking a photo of it, is the binding & I don't have enough fabric, so will have to get more tomorrow. Today was a press all the fabric I used as packing material when we moved in June. Gonna break in my Go! Baby making squares & triangles. I have several projects in mind for them.

    Thanks to the Virtual Quilt weekend I managed to get my avatar quilt ...Fading charms completed. It is not perfect by any means, I am still a beginner quilter and know that I tend to be more creative than accurate in my piecing but I am learning with every quilt I make.

    This quilt will be a birthday gift for a very dear friend. She fell in love with this from the moment she first saw me starting to put 2 inch squares together. She will not admit to her age... and will only say that this is a Big Birthday... all I can say that when I get to be her age and look as good as she does and have the energy to do all that she does... I will be proud to tell folks my age.

    I sewed some on my braid quilt and sandwiched, quilted, and bound from the back a baby quilt. The top, batting, and backing were provided for me but it was the first time that I stitched diagonally rather than tie it or tack it with a small design like a butterfly. I sure have some crooked sewing lines in the middle. I remembered to quilt the center first thanks to postings on QB. My back is sore from wrestling just a baby quilt!

    Judy5cents, your quilt is on my to-do list as a baby quilt but I will use 4 inch squares that were given to me.

    It is very pretty.

    You all have been a busy bunch this weekend! I enjoy reading about all you are doing and the pictures provide such inspiration. No sewing for me this weekend - went to 13 year old grandson's football game. They won the Super Bowl in their age group!! Took my Mom and husband to lunch with the team to celebrate. Then brought two grandkids home to spend the night. This morning my husband and son sorted cows and calves while 4 grandkids and I played. They left about 12:30. After cleaning up the house and reading for a while we took my Mom to supper. Now home and settling in the night. Maybe I can get to my sewing tomorrow!

    Well I did do some brain quilting. After a long search I found Missourie star video for merry I go. I took off the pattern and then started to cut all the 5" blocks and joins them . They are all ready now for cutting and then make into blocks.
    It took ages to find the viseo tutorial. Sometimes it was not in the list . It took longer as I couldn't remember the. Name but knew the pattern. Will post picture at end of today Monday when it is all together.
    Finished is better than a UFO
