Okay here is one of the cloth 'books' I am making into a nap quilt. I should have pieced some blocks for the sides but I just really do not have the time. Besides I did not think about it till I had already sewed the borders and sides on! UGH! No time to take all out and begin again! Besides it will be a well used quilt any way..;-) So just need to sandwich and quilt. Next one is an ABC book, hope to have it pieced today.
I also wanted to share a wonderful birthday gift I received from my niece D. A needle roll!! Snowmen!! I love these things...do not know why...maybe the name...hahaha! We know I love rolls..these are just not edible!!! They are yummy though! D is an awesome stitcher!!!
Remember the grapevine wreath I painted...here it is! I decided to make it my needle roll holder. So as I receive them( yes I hope for more, more , more)..will add them. I did put 2 pin cushies on there too, they were done by a gal in Texas. I hung it between the windows of my sewing room.
For window coverings I decided to use 2 vintage lace table clothes! Works for me! Maybe with the rain gone...at last...I can work some outside. I still need to sand and paint the wall shelves for sewing room. Course may just have to wait till after Thanksgiving .
So much to do before the arrival of the grands Sunday! Sent Gramps out to do some shopping yesterday! Nice that he enjoys doing it! Got to stock up on some supplies. WOW...I am trying to imagine fixing for an extra 7 every day!
We had Sunshine all day Sunday!!! YES! Light wind and was warm too!! I washed up some fabric and dried it on the line! I hope we are back to our normal Fall weather now!!
