After our Friday night date is over, yes we still date every Friday night, the weekend begins with anticipation and enthusiasm. Of what you may ask.....it is uninterrupted sewing time. My husband usually plays golf, works in the yard, or works on the "Honey DO List!" I usually have no commitments on Saturday until dinner time and if we possibly have evening plans. Fun, fun time for me hibernating in my sewing room!
I worked hard completing my quilt alongs and blocks for my various bees. I definitely can't have my sister getting ahead of me. HA! First on my list was to finish and post my Alabama Spinner Block for the Layer Cake Quilt Along. Gene Black designed it for our quilt along. Check out his blog.
Next I moved on to our Charm Square Quilt along. I had everything cut out from last week's assignment so I was all ready to take off. That is exactly what I did as I chained an inner and outer border around the squares in my charm pack. It really didn't take too long and I am all set for this week's directions. I think we are cutting our squares wonky. Woo hoo!!
I was feeling pretty good about myself when I talked to Sis, and she had not only gotten her bee projects done, she also made a mug rug, blogged, and worked on her granddaughter's Christmas Stocking. Boy does she spur me on. HA!!!
Sunday afternoon I got busy working on my November house for my partner in the Calendar of Houses Bee. Cat lives in New Zealand. Having never been there I was struggling with what to do for her block. Not only do they NOT celebrate Thanksgiving, it is also the beginning of Spring for her. She told me they celebrate Guy Fawkes Day on Nov. 5th. which is celebrated with bonfires and fireworks. What do I do??? Cat also told me that on Nov. 6th she had 6 baby chicks hatch. This is what I made for her. This is so fun but it sure stretches my creativity!!
WELL, enough about me and all my projects! My sister is coming to town on Thursday and that is a good deal for YOU! We are having a "give away." Please leave us a comment telling us what you are thankful for during this season of the year. Our give away closes at midnight on Thursday, November 11th. We will post the winner and the prize on Friday by noon. Please pass along our "give away" to your blogging friends. You are in for a treat!!
Luv ya, Gigi
