    I am being taken on a fabric shopping spree and then onto lunch by my daughter-in-law as a belated birthday gift.

    Looking forward to it very much. I have an idea for my next quilt and I have a "few gaps" in colour in the fabrics that I intend using so I hope to remedy that today.

If anyone has any good ideas on how to do that, I'd sure appreciate the input. Otherwise, have a great Saturday y'all.
    My DD did a peacock wallhanging, made a sleeve on the back and inserted wire or an old cut-to-size coat hanger. It worked pretty well.

    This morning had nothing at all to do with my sewing room or quilting. I spent the morning making choc covered bacon. Had a friend that wanted to buy some from me. I Quoted him a price of $30/lb (bacon n chocolate is expensive you know, plus my time) and he quickly agreed to it!

    DD and I went to a quilt show this am. They had a resale shop & she got 4 or 5 good sized batting pieces. She paid $2. for all of them. We came back here & she straightened out some problems with my computer & looked at all 284 pictures I took on my recent trip to CA.

    Have to go to grocery store; think I'll get something to put in crock pot for dinner after work tomorrow.
    Whoever posted about the crock pot, thanks for the idea.

    THEN I'll be able to work on my brother's National Park quilt for a Christmas gift.

    Forgot to add that we registered for a couple of quilt classes at SewingExpo in Tinley Park next month.

    OMG Carol, I love that!!! What an awesome way to use scraps and also have something to do while supposidly relaxing watching TV....Would the thing with the holes come from Michaels? Would you do it the same way as rug hooking with wool? I guess you'd just cut the strips the right length? Wow I love it, so homey looking

    Up too early! Checked on crock pots for church dinner today. Now working on appliqueing blocks for DGD's little ponies quilt. I really need to get it finished before her b'day on the 18th. will be working on cleaning another vintage machine given to me yesterday by a friend. Her name is Chelsea and I think I'll paint her pink!

    Well I worked very hard on My French Hens yesterday, but had company, had to go to Lowe's for lumber so my son can repair the porch on a rent house, and then had to take a nap. So today, I will finish what I started yesterday and maybe finish the one I have about 1/2 of the quilting done. (Unless I have company again today.)

    I buy it at Ben Franklins for 3.99 size is 24x30 - its called rug canvas. I am going to try Burlap for my next one. I want to make one for the end of my bed. I think my cats will love it. I use 1 to 1 1/2 strips. You can sew the strips together or just use them. I did one that I sewed the strips and the back looked as nice as the front.

    oh and for the latch hook rug if you use burlap. The strips would be 1/4 strips.

    Great job. I sure wish that thrift store was by me. I'd be rushing there. I like your rug in process as well. Today I'm at work but I spent the past three days working on things for my DGS's first Halloween party; he's 6. So far are done on my Ruby embroidery machine. I got gifts for him to give out done, (mostly done, just a few touch ups). They are Tic Tac Toe games made from felt with a spider in the middle and all of the Xs and O pieces are little spider webs with either the x or the o on them. It folds up with a handle and you use groments and put holes in the game pieces and they go on a keyring and attach to handle so hopefully they won't get lost. I also made him some sucker (loli pops) covers in the shape of a ghost, a jackolantern and candy corn. Then last night I made him a banner that has 3 ghost held together by ribbon and they spell out Boo. Now I'm going to start his signature wall hanging. I tought it would be great to have all the kids sign his quilt for memories in the future. He's one of my biggest supporter and can't wait until I let him sew. He loves the idea so much that when I got a treadle machine he couldn't believe something could run without plugging it in. I told him that I would never sell it and it was his, that along with my antique bedroom set that he's loved since I started collecting all the marble top pieces. Thursday night my daughter and family stayed the night so that I could cut her tule for her and guide her while she makes her first Halloween costume for her 20 month old daughter. It is a Bell tutu. It's turning out very cute. This week we start on modifiying a thrift store suit for my DGS so he can be the Beast to match his sisters. Next we are modifiing and another thrift store find to make the wedding dress in Beetle Juice. We are doing that one so that she can still use the cute dress once Halloween is done. I did get a little cooking, a little cleaning done as well. I've had a very bust 3 days off and now back at work to relax and get a break so that I can start it over next week. The following week it'll be back to Christmas presents. Mostly on my embroidery machine.

    I am making a rag rug right now but mine is on a frame and the fabric strip are woven into each other. A quilt guild member is teaching a few of us how to do it... her hubby made the frames for us...fun to learn
