I got busy yesterday evening and did the binding on the Wild Turkey quilt so it is now complete. Not in time for fall or Thanksgiving but done.
Hey, Lori! I should have mentioned the doll quilt to you sooner. I wrote Lori an e-mail yesterday telling her that I had made a doll quilt from her last sew-long and had not been able to find the quilt since I put it together. I had looked more than once and the sewing room had been cleaned a couple times so things had been put away. I told her that it either went to the thrift store in a donated bag of fabric or was hidden in the folds of a big piece of fabric. I needed a piece of red fabric yesterday and began pulling some reds off the shelf. I saw that there was a smaller piece of batting in between some red and black check fabric and pulled it out. Here was the doll quilt stuck to the piece of batting waiting for machine quilting. Before I lost it again, I sat right down at the sewing machine and completed the work. I should have e-mailed Lori a good while back about the lost little quilt. Maybe I would have found it a lot sooner.
The mailman brought me two packages yesterday. The first was from Julie and I was bad. The little wrapped package inside said "Don't Peek" and I peeked anyhow. She sent me one of the pincushions she was making back around Thanksgiving time. Made from nine patches and a button center. I especially like that she used a plaid in red and green. A big thank you! I so appreciate a hand made gift. It is going into my pincushion collection that I keep in a Longaberger basket. On display in the family room.
Colleen. She has been my blog buddy right from the very beginning of starting my blog. We both like prim style and developed a good friendship. She sent me some plaid squares, a prim style decorative plate and a wonderful little cushion that she made. Take a look.
I am playing in the sewing room a bit this morning. I pulled out one of my Cheri quilt patterns that has a Christmas theme. I can't complete it before the holiday but it will be fun to work on it.
Come back soon!
