Columbus Day-Weekend Update

GORGEOUS Columbus Day out there isn't it? Not only is it 79 here in NJ, it's a day off from school....double nice!

How can you tell you've been doing some catch up sewing?

Lots of empty bobbins! Spent some time this morning refilling them with my usuals...grey, cream and white.

Then onto photographing a charity top I made for retreat in November. This pattern is called "Glorious Geese". The cutting took about an hour if that, then the assembly maybe 2-3 hours.....It finished up to be 60 x 72 which will be perfect for a little boy. The black and white print is a town with multi colored cars, trucks, busses etc. all driving around. I picked a red, yellow and blue print to accent it. I think you can click on it to see better... I'm going to ship this one off to be quilted once I find a back for it.

Then I decided this week I needed to get some binding on some quilts. I can't just sit in front of the TV at night so when I'm not in the embroidery mood I do binding.... Here's the 3 that are in line now.....The flannel on the bottom may win out as the first one to get done since "someone" in my house has been fondling it and saying how much she likes "flannel". We won't name names though :)

I have some machine buttonholing to do on the November mini for my mom..... I'll report back on that once I finish.

Hope you're all having a nice holiday.

Oh, Peggy, I love the look of the Glorious Geese! Would be a great one for using up scraps and leftover fabrics.
