SUNDAY - I tackled Mt. Washmore, caught up on some of my favorite blogs, and visited with a friend who stopped by briefly.
Oh! I also completed the set of 4 holiday napkins that I started on Friday. They look very festive:
Diann at Little Penguin Quilts asked if I had a pattern link. Oops!! I meant to include that in my post (and one for the table runner that I shared last week.) Diann, your wish is my command:
Yes. I realize that it doesn't look much bigger than the last time you saw it, but it really is. Two whole pattern repeats bigger!! Better yet, my Thanksgiving project bag is made of BROWN fabric and the turkeys have BLACK top hats so they tie into November's RSC Color(s) of the Month. :o))
The evening was spent learning a little about North Carolina quilt history at the Durham Orange Quilt Guild meeting. It reinforced my theory that there is nothing much that is NEW in the quilt world. Even the "Jelly Roll Race" style of quiltmaking (using burial ribbons as strips) was done back in the early 1900's:
I remembered my name tag this month!!!
Wonder of wonders, I won a Door Prize:
Between the two events, I even found time to complete the second set of 4 napkins, giving me a total of 8:
TUESDAY - It's a happy day!! I spent the day stitching away at Needleb's house. Would YOU like to see what I accomplished? It's not much, but...
... I built a quilt back for my Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt. It's been a UFO since January of 2015. I need to add a border to it for ease of quilting on the longarm and plan to use some leftover yellow yardage from this year's commission quilt finish.
WEDNESDAY - Sweater Class and lunch with friends:
... and a quick visit to the area's newest needlework shop:
Once home, you can just call me "The Joyful Baker"!! The pumpkin pies (and muffins, too) are cooling on the rack. Bring on the turkey!! Well, I guess I better wait for tomorrow for that task.
In the meantime, let's see how those new wheels work:
Here is a better look at the quilting:
THURSDAY - Happy Thanksgiving!! As soon as the turkey comes out of the oven, we'll be on our way to Grandma's house.
FRIDAY - 'Twas the day after Thanksgiving and all through the house Joyful could be heard yelling, "Let's GO!! I've got to get home to start my On Ringo Lake Mystery Quilt from Bonnie Hunter!!!" These are the fabrics that I plan to use:
SATURDAY - With the passing of another quick week, we have arrived at LINK PARTY day over on the So Scrappy blog. I'm headed over to see who is working on their DARK blocks and who has posted a rainbow finish. Come along, you won't believe your eyes... and your project list will never be the same! LOL!!
Until next time...
