Gee, Gini! Sounds like the 2:00-4:00 AM time slot is still open. You should be to get a lot done in 2 uninterrupted hours. No one really needs sleep! LOL!
Debbie-do, that is a great looking quilt. Hand quilting it will be just the right touch for it. You go girl. Ginny
Oh, Ginny, I know how you feel. Yesterday was cookie dough order pick-up day...Grandma gets to do the honors since Mom is working and Step Dad doesn't have a car and is taking care of the baby. Then after cookie dough is delivered to everyone, it's time for TaeKwonDo which means I don't get home until about 7:30 p.m. Today is "Trunk or Treat" at the school. Yes, you read that right, I said Trunk or Treat. Parents and grandparents, etc. line their vehicles up and pass out candy to the 400+ students who parade by in their costumes out of the trunks of their cars. My grandsons volunteered me again this year to that dubious honor. Then it will be back to TaeKwonDo for a Halloween party and then off "trick or treating" in the neighborhood. At least Mom will be home from work for that honor, but Grandma gets to sit at their house and pass out candy, while Grandpa mans our home front. We live in a pretty senior area, so at our house we'll be lucky if we get 10 kids...last year we had 6, and 3 of them were my grandchildren.
Saturday the oldest grandson (he's almost 14 and I don't have to run him around town most of the time) will be testing for his Black Belt in TaeKwonDo. We are volunteers for check and refreshment points on the 5 mile run. Then we will all drive into Reno (about 45 minutes from here) for the rest of the all-day testing.
My oldest daughter's in-laws arrived from Britain last night so the weekend is sure to be filled with visiting and catching up on all of the news. They own a house here in Fernley, too, so there will be reciprocal invitations for Sunday dinners, etc. They will be here until the first week of December when they fly back home to spend Christmas with her mother (in her 90's) and their other son and daughter-in-law.
Ah, the holidays, how do we ever get anything done.
Debbie ,beautiful quilt you should be very proud of it . Good luck with the hand quilting.
EAT!! SLEEP !! QUILT!!
Gini I would really like the name of this pattern, I love it.
Debbie, great flower garden quilt!
Love the baskets Gini!
gini:my baskets are together, yippee.
Gini, love your baskets!
Debbie-do:The top to my Southwestern Grandma's Flower Garden is complete!
Debbie, great job on all your hexi's, you have a great quilt.
Gini, your basket quilt is gorgeous, can't wait to see it finished by the end of the week since you don't have to sleep. Whew, said that all in one breath! Now I'm tired, time for a nap. : )
This is first of the Christmas present table runners. It is simple, my wife counseled me on colors SIL would like and to keep quilting simple. It's unbleached muslin, tea-dyed muslin and cotton batting. Besides I like the way it looks, it really feels good and like old timey soft. I need to make another one for a human not a table. Next one is the bug stuff I showed a pic of. Here is muslin, in sun and shadow, with most of my Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon Pajamas cropped out.
Joe, I love it! Looks like something I would have. Also, just a side note, I'm glad to see a table runner with some significant length! Most table runners end up looking like just a large floor for the centerpiece on our big dining room table. :)
Joe, nice long table runner in nice soft colors to go with any decor. Your wife has good taste and your SIL will love it, nice job.
I'm amazed out how the muslin tea dyes so well. That is great and all those little stitches. Great job.
