To Do....To Do

What the heck....maybe if I put it in writing it'll get done. :)

1.  Get a load of laundry done.
2.  Get quilt top for QOV finished. Backing made, batting cut. Ready to load on quilting machine.
3.  Get returns packaged up.  Just before I crawled into bed.
4.  Make Blueberry Sour Cream Pie before sour cream goes bad.  Yum.
5.  Put roast in oven for supper.  Leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

I think that's enough goals for one day, don't you?

Teenager!!! & QOV Quilt

Yep, Granddaughter #2 is a teenager now. Heaven help us!!

And Friday she broke her wrist in basketball practice. No matter what she's doing she gives it all she's got. We keep telling her to "slow down", but that's just not who she is.

Another QOV quilt finished. This one is from the blocks I did back in May. Instead of spending six hours on the road to go to the Fremont Heartstrings Sew-in I stayed home and sewed blocks.  The quilt is in the washer as I type and will be off in the mail to Alycia in CO on Monday or Tuesday. (Hopefully. LOL)

Recent Finishes

These will be my Show & Tell at Quilt Club tonight.

On the left is a table runner project done at Quilt Club a couple months ago. On the right is also a Quilt Club project.....from more than 10 years ago.

This was either a Quilt Club project or a class at Cornerstone Quilts. I remember there was a group of us and we all brought strips of fabric to trade. I don't remember the name of the pattern, but I think it was in the Fons & Porter magazine.

Orange Crush. A Bonnie Hunter mystery pattern. LOTS of pieces.

Roll Roll Cotton Boll. Another Bonnie Hunter mystery pattern. Even MORE piecing...and it's BIG. I think it will serve as my Christmas quilt this year.

The last ten pints of squash that I intend to can this year are finished. Now on to putting together the chicken casserole and broccoli salad for the Quilt Club potluck tonight. Tomorrow morning I'm off to a meeting of the Antelope County librarians...I get to go the round about way to Clearwater.  Will that bridge EVER get rebuilt???

I'm Keeping Busy....

...but the results don't really look like much:

14 pints of squash done on Friday

Small Christmas gift projects

NONE of these buttons work for these table runners. Drat!!!
I really couldn't believe that NONE of these buttons matched the table runners. And I thought I had bought buttons to match any project the last time I was in Hobby Lobby. Maybe I'll pay them another visit?? It isn't even easy to find buttons anymore. Doesn't anybody sew clothes??

Working on canning more squash today...another 10-15 pints. DH had a bumper crop and we've already given lots away and once I get what I want we'll give more away.

I have some more finished projects to show but it will have to wait until I get around to "staging" them and take some pictures.
