Ros just posted she finished quilting My Purple Heaven! Pattern is at Quiltville (My Blue Heaven) for free. My daughter Hannah will be getting this one since purple is her favorite color and she doesn't mind a bit when I gift her with a quilt. I started it for Coleman's fiance but then they split up. They are sort of back together again but meanwhile I reassigned this quilt. Oh well! Maybe she will get one one day.

I got tons done sewing today which was fabulous, but I have less than 1000 steps on my fitbit! Sheesh! Hiking in the morning and I will be working out tomorrow during the Packer game too! Gonna shoot for 10,000 tomorrow! Lost two pounds this past week (after a gain the week before) so now I am at 67.8 total pounds lost. :)
A Bee in My Bonnet's "Tom Turkey." He whipped up pretty quickly and makes me smile!
Jo's Country Junction!
I also quilted and bound Speck. Happy to have two more off my list!
I watched the PBS special about the Roosevelts for about seven hours today and then we started some movies. So far "Signal" stinks! Now what shall I sew next?
Kathy and I spent some time tonight making backings, piecing batting and making and attaching bindings. All the busy work that piles up and never gets done until I just dig in and try to get it moving! I still need to make a backing for Lozenges and have one more small quilt to get batting and backing on. So the Packer pair have binding on and will get wrapped up for Christmas in plenty of time!
This one is now ready to be tied (old pic though).
Still have lots of little quilts to get quilted--all but one now have backing and batting and are ready to go:
|Bread and Butter|
Tomorrow nothing on the agenda but sewing!!!! I am hoping I am in the mood to quilt and bind one or two of these little ones so I can get some finishes in! :)
