    I am still plugging away at the hand embroidery. Yep, it is going to be special just because of the embroidery. I have some colors of fabric picked out to do the piecing of the top with so once I get them finished they will go together easily. I have been also doing the show presentation so after this weekend, my time will be free again!

    I am working on the quilting now...if I hadn't changed my mind "umpteen" times, I would be finished. I did hand applique on the Sunbonnet Sue and Overall Sam blocks...I didn't really intend for it to be red white and blue themed, but more of a "reproduction" theme...I guess it kind of dictated for itself what it would be as I went along...lol...Here is an in progress pic:

    Kiffie that is so pretty. Nancia, I am sure yours is so cute. We are having so many nice ones. All are so pretty. Many busy folks. I guess it will continue to get busier the closer to the holidays.

    Worked on my embroidery for 2.5 hours last night at quilting and still did not finish a block. Ugh, so frustrating. One blocks is done, the second I just have the fancy hats and feathers to do then will post a photo of it. Hoping today but that presentation is due for Sunday as well. Not sure which one is going to win. I did get a setting plan decided last night with the gals so It is going to end up longer than wide which will be nice for a wallhanging. This way you will not need as much width but able to hang in a nice slender spot.

    Thanks ssnare. I am so stinking frustrated at computers right now. I scanned in my power point material into adobe, then could not get the file from the downstairs computer to upstairs so had to do a by pass to another computer which would not let me copy onto the desktop and my computer would not network with any of them and the cd writer on the downstairs computer won't work thought I had it then my computer just formated the whole thing. Boy technology. Good thing those girls are good at power point. Wonderful news, my little brother is coming to town and so my daughter will be here as well with her boyfriend so that means I have lots of computer help becuase the all know power point. Oh how wonderful the good Lord is!!!!!! He is going to rescue me for sure.

    i have finished the basic cats. now i need to mount them on their backings, sew around, sandwich , quilt, etc. think i'll do that tomorrow. hope somebody likes purple, yellow and green, besides me that is. can't decide how to sash it or set it. it will require thought and i only think on mondays. except when monday is followed by a tuesday of the same month and year, which means i think best on monday, december 31st. it's going to be a loooong year!

    Loving it Nancia, I want that one so I can tease my dog with cats. He is old and still can't stand the neighbors cats who come in the yard. It is comical to see this 14 year old dog chase the cats.

    I did get a little bit more done on a block yesterday. I just have one hat and the feathers to do and it is done. Almost forgot how to do french knots but watched you tube and mastered them again. yeah for you tube. At least I know the last two are half done.

    Yesterday I told my husband I was going to work on mine for a long time, but first wanted to check in on my dad. So I went down to see dad, and he had fallen 2 days before, and cut his head open, niece took him to emergency room, he got those metal staple things, and was home resting from a bad headache. His phone wasn't working so we were getting him fixed up with one, which I went back down to give him, and show him how to use it. Went to get him some icecream. He never asks for anything, but wanted some icecream. Well girls, it will be today that I will be sewing some more. I hope tonight to put up here a teaser too. lol....

    Thanks for the input, y'all!
    I give a vote for green, Nancia...but then again it is my favorite color..lol..
    JuneBillie, glad your dad is recuperating, and I am sure the ice cream was an "added benefit" to your visit...
    QuilterMomma, hang in there, I just can imagine how awesome your finished quilt will be!
    Lastly, for the next wallhanging swap maybe I will use some of the blocks, which were the original ones I posted pics of that I was going to use for this one...I know it is said that it IS a "Woman's prerogative to change her mind", but I am thinking I just may change mine too much...or maybe the problem is that I do need to change it...for a different mind!!..LOL...Sorry for the bad pun...
    So, for the next wallhanging swap, here are some pics of the other blocks, I just was having such a hard time figuring out what sashing I wanted to use with any of them....feedback is welcome, good or bad. Also posting pics of 2 wallhangings that I need to finish the embellishing and quilt them...these 2 are the 1st quilts I ever made by machine before I found my lqs group..

    Kiffie, I love them all, and I would not worry about replacing that radish, then it will always have a story behind it. hehe...Um, if I post a teaser tonight it will be late, otherwise it will be tomorrow. Just saying.

    I wanted to show a bit more than this, but decided to show this small sample. I will have 4 blocks, an appliqued ornament in each block, but the finished creation will have very pretty embellishments, and pretty threads. I hope when it is completed that whoever gets it will enjoy it. I am using material I bought before my mother passed away to make her a special bow tuck purse. I wanted to use the material for something special. I consider all of you special, and know she would have enjoyed this too.

    Oh, to clarify, the material that would have been used in the bow tuck is the material that you see in the ornaments. Sorry!
    My camera did not pick up a true color to some of it.
