Winurse, it was my favorite project so far. We learned the embroidery techniques and the pattern has the stitching lines on it. This is where you fold up around the iron to carry it. Then when it's flat, it becomes your ironing surface.

Probably no sewing today...run to Reno for DH's VA appointments, lawn mowing day when we get back (if it's not too hot or too windy).  I need to start a new baby quilt (DD1 is expecting a girl in December, woo hoo, a girl to add to my 4 grandsons) and need to get started on the HST's for the swap.  Have MQ6 backing loaded on the frame, but need to pick up some more batting before I can get it started.  Need to make labels for several quilts, also need to make a baby boy quilt for 2nd cousin who just had a big baby boy, 9-1/2 pounds.  Wow, he's half grown already.

Michelle, I love your embroidery work on the iron caddy! I make the caddies but without the embroidery. Your extra touch makes the project though!

Roxana, it's a Huskvarna diamond something. I use a few of Anita good designs. I also get a lot off a free embroidery site.  U can download 3 free a week. Some I buy if someone wants something specific. The soft ware came with it 5D. I haven't done any designing so didn't want money into an elaborate software. What I'm doing so far has worked well.

I have been using my embroidery machine a lot the last week or so.  I am absolutely loving the new model.

I worked on a quilt for a customer from the shop today.  I made her one last year.  She gave me a panel to which she wanted me to add borders and then quilt for her.  Got it sandwiched today and started quilting it.  It's a map of the US so I am sort of quilting around the states.  Not as easy as I thought since the only "nice" shaped states are Colorado and Wyoming.  :o)  Before I started on the quilting, I finished up a bunch of pillowcases - some for charity and some for gifts.  Need to go out to the shed and bring in some more scraps to stuff pet pillows with.  Nice to have off until next Monday.  Planning on getting a lot done since I have so many days in a row to "play".

I have been working on my Kansas blocks for the state swap and will definitely fired those off by weeks end.  Then I have a lot of other projects to do.

Hey Marge, I stuffed my first pet pillow yesterday.  I have bags and bags of tiny scraps, so I thought it was about time to use some.  I made Pickles a pillow just her size, and tomorrow I will use your hot dog pillowcase tutorial to make a pillowcase for it. in a pretty cat pattern.

the pattern is Sisters Common Thread, caddy pad.  not sure if there's other patterns like it.  This one is very easy to do, the only hard part is drawing out the pattern on pattern paper.  I made a copy of it on pattern paper, so I can make more now.  There are 2 different sizes

Can you bring these to the retreat?  Do you use regular batting or Insul-brite or something else entirely?

I di not make our thread catcher. I bought them and worth everynpenny. Got it by calling the Scarlet Letterr quilt store. 

Mine is metal cup holder with black stuff bag hangs off it.  If AndreaDee comes to retreat you can see hers. And currently I am using the cup holder for my drink at bedside..Maddie's, it is south of Atlanta and easy to get to., really sturdy and i bought 2 of them. Think they were about $30 each with shipping but do not hold me to it.

safe travels to retreat and enjoy your week coming up.

My kitty Pickles likes to sit at the top of the stairs to watch the comings and goings of her people and her dog.  I finally made her a floor pillow for that location.  Marge taught me that scraps make great pillow fillers, and she taught me how to make pillow cases with finished seams so there are no stray threads.  Here is Pickle's new pillow (18 inch square) with washable pillow case overlooking the stairs...

I have coordinating fabric, so maybe I can get a quilt made for her before winter.  She's never forgiven me for making the dog a quilt first.
