    Saturday Sewing

    Is anyone spending at least part of the day sewing today?
    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!

    I made my first log cabin block today. ...I have heard it said a lot of people say this is an easy block. I have looked at log cabins for some time & never did one. So I took the plunge today & did my first one. It came out better then I expected but still not exactly as I would have liked. I think I tend to be to much of a perfectionest. I have made several quilts I can't figure why this intimadates me so much..oh well...onward I go.

    I'm working on a black/white and hot pink French braid quilt for our granddaughter. I can only look at those strips for so long, and then I need to walk away. That's why I'm here now!

    An apron and catching up on the train mystery quilt in between laundry and dog walking. Oh, and a Spicy Spiral table runner on another machine. I just stopped to catch my breath after the walk.

    I'm making a sweatshirt jacket for my older DD's neighbor girl. It's going to have a woven fabric edge on the fronts, two different sized yo-yo's and 4 folded diamond patches. Got all the fabric cut-------------still have not decided on what color sweatshirt to use. DD thinks hot pink or teal and I'm leaning toward forest green.

    Been making my meatballs and sauce to freeze for three Christmas family dinners. Trying to get a jump start on the holidays. I'm done now and need to embroidery a label for a quilt and finish some Winding Road blocks. I can't wait to get to my sewing machine.

    I worked on Judy Niemeyer's Indian Summer quilt pattern. I got the center section together and was somewhat disappointed in the look. Then I layed out the 120 piece border and WOW! Now the quilt looks great. Fun day for me.

    I've spent most of the last to days at machine embroidery classes. Figured since I have all my Christmas presents bought and wrapped ready for delivery next week, that I could have time for classes and enjoying myself.

    I was sewing and watching the game, too. I did age about 100 yrs watching that game - and it's a good thing that i had my grays covered last weekend, because I'm sure that i got about 100 more gray hairs, too!!!!

    I'm making this quilt that takes about 25 min to make each block....I don't know why I figured that out, and kinda wish I didn't know that bit of info??? LOL!!
    my name is becca and i'm a quilt-a-holic :-)

    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!

    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!
