Finished in the nick of Time

 This quilt got finished on Wednesday evening before Turkey day. 
And here is where it lived on thanksgiving day.  And it will be there until I get my Christmas stuff out if I decide to decorate this year.

new book

 This is my new book.  Kim Diehl always delivers the best patterns.  I think I like her.  Look what else I own.  Sorry about the sideways images, nothing I can do will change it so just tilt your head please.
Yep, 5 of her other books.  I can't get enough of her great books.  I love looking through the pictures and dreaming of a time I can make a few more of them.

A new little quilt

 This little quilt is from the newest Primitive Quilts and projects.  I love it, sweet, easy and fast.
 Kinda hard to get a good pic because it is tall and skinny.    Actually I think the final measurements are 6" x 36"  or something close to that.

Weekend update

 Worked on my pumpkin quilt.  Got 16 of the blocks together and have put a small border on, oops didn't get a pic of that yet.  Waiting to find the perfect border for this quilt.  The original quilt has 36 blocks.  I only want to do a wall hanging.  It went pretty fast and I like the results.


Yesterday (Sunday November 3rd) I picked tomatoes.  The size isn't great but the vine is still producing.  Weird.  It's 82 degrees here in Northern California today and the Redding area is supposed to be 86 degrees.

I also started the cutest snowman quilts from the Primitive Quilts and projects magazine.  As soon as I get the face sewn on I will show it!

A little place in my sewing area I like

I love old metal things and have collected a few old rake parts.  I love the way it acts as a shelf and I can hang stuff from it.  See that cookie cutter?  I plan on using it as a quilting template for a future project.

New project for the weekend

I hope to get to this project on the weekend.  These little purses can be sooooo cute!
