    I will be going to JoAnn's with my shopping list, then a visit with Grandson. Back home to watch the game and do some sewing. No quilting today , working on jacket for myself and pjs for sister's Christmas gift.

    I love the rug, too! Will need to search out that book. Very busy day ahead for me...need to sweep and dust and run to grocery store. All 3 of our kids plus spouses/boyfriend will be here this afternoon to watch college football and then to have a weinie roast. I also will try to sneak a little time to work on my American Beauty quilt.

    I'd like to know what the ruler method of folding is too. Can someone tell us how it's done? I'm working on organizing my sewing room and found a couple of unfinished projects to work on. Don't know what I'm going to do today, but after 5 cloudy, rainy days, it's a beautiful morning to enjoy.

    Great organization! I love your latch hook rug! I'm on my way to my sewing room to pin together a quilt sandwich. I need to get it off my cutting table as I want to start working on tracing the pattern and getting my fabric cut for an appliqued Autumn BOM. Hopefully, I can finish the pinning this morning and start on the BOM this afternoon. Guess it will be Monday before I start doing the quilting on the quilt I am pinning. Wish me luck. Today I need it.

    Woke in my recliner and cleaned up the kitchen after family supper last night. Now its "morning tea and the board time", then choosing fabrics for the rest of Row G of my Dear Jane after I let the chickens out. (Boy, did they stop laying early this year and starting to molt already! Cold winter coming?)

    Enjoy your day!

Size:  982.5 KBYou are right...Locker hooking...don't know why my fingers type the wrong words ; ) I just finished cutting and sewing the batting in the middle of my squares now to start sewing them all together.

We carry a book at the LQS where I work, entitled "Fabric Locker Hooking" by Kathleen Carpenter. She gives step-by-step instructions on how to do this technique. It's a great way to use up your crappy WM fabric.

    Here is the book on locker hooking. I bought the book but you really do not need one. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8hahk...eature=related - the locker hook is like $5.00 its a nice cheap hobbie.

    I am still working on UFOs. My goal was to finish 5 a week, but I went through all the almost done (easy) ones quickly and so I have slowed down. I am working on quilting the border on My French Hens quilt. Hope to have it done before noon. Still have some quilting to do in the body of the quilt but it won't take too long.

    Got it at goodwill...$80.00 plus 20.00 for a glass shelf that was missing. It makes shopping the stash so easy!
    Happy Quilting.

    Nanna up North with the cold snowy weather...I would love to see some of your rugs that you have made.

I'll be working on a lap quilt for my great nephew as well.

    I love those locker hooking rugs.... they make my ugly fabric disappear. I made one rug with a bear in the middle for our cabin and another rug is just lots of different fabrics. I'm planning on doing another one this winter with a fish in the center.... again to take to the cabin. But, I turn the outside edge in and do 4 rows all the way around. I don't have to make any kind of border that way.

    You all go have a wonderful Saturday.

    I just sat down with my coffee after cleaning all of the house except the 2 bathrooms. Today will not be a sewing day for me, we are having our friends in to play bridge, the a pizza and salad dinner. Also DH favourite cousin is coming from VA on Wednesday fro 10 days (thus the reason to clean the house from top to bottom) we will be taking her to Las Vegas next w/e - so I am afraid there will not be too much sewing taking place for the next couple of weeks. I know I will go into withdrawal, but I will be able to knit some dishclothes for Xmas gifts while visiting in the evening.
    A bed without a quilt is like the night sky without stars.

    We bought a new car that has a clearance too low to go over a cement ridge under the gate to our property so today my husband and I are going to be breaking up cement! Lots of exercise. Then I am going to paint, read and get our clothes ready to go to church tomorrow.

    GOOD GRIEF! What are all of you doing up in the middle of the night? ;-))

    What I am doing today is making vegetable relish from all of the leftover vegetables cleaned out from the garden yesterday. We pulled or picked green tomatoes, carrots, red and green peppers, cabbage, onions. Cutting them all up today and letting them sit overnight in salt. I will be canning it all in pint jars tomorrow.

    I will be quilting tonight, after DH goes to bed.

    Guests tonight so I have dinner in the oven and a clean kitchen. Babysitting daughter's dogs while she goes to yard sales; and for me I'm cutting fabric for making a One Block Wonder. Oh, yeah. I'm also waiting for the furnace man to come.

    Dh is away camping. This morning I sewed the main squares for a laptop. I spent an hour hand quilting a quilt.

    I was up at midnight and couldn't get back to sleep until at least 2 and then I was up at 5 so I just took a 20 minute nap. I have to go clean up the kitchen.

    I want to cut and sew the D9P top together and then hand quilt some more.

    I do have to run to grocery store and pick up a prescription.

    Have a great day everyone.

    This is the only one I can show you right now. I made it about 5 years ago and it still washes up just fine. It is at the back door so it gets lots of use. The other one I made is at my son's house, down state. And, I really want to make one with a fish to bring up to the cabin next spring.

    Love it! Now that I think about it, I think the LQS I go to had a class to do something similar several years ago. I did not have time to do the class but I bought a book. Think I will search for it later on!

    Everyone is so busy.. I just got on the board after my nap. lol .. So far today I did take the dog for a walk, get 2 pkgs. ready to mail out on Monday and give the dog(and me) a bath.
    This is what was in the one pkg I mailed out. The other was a Willie Nelson doll that a friends dog had gotten ahold of and I repaired.
    I have to give a big thanks to Dawn from the board who made my labels for me..
