Yup, it's my birthday! 43. Wow. That sounds really old to me. But that's okay. My birthday will be over soon enough and then it's on to Thing 1's birthday on Saturday, then hubby's next Wednesday. Yeah, as I mentioned yesterday, it's birthday week around here. Actually my neighbor's birthday is today as well and she always remembers to send me something. We got home from Girl Scouts last night and she had sent over some flowers and a little loaf of pumpkin bread (yum!). Anyway, I've had some birthday sewing to do. About that...
(don't forget to go check out Lee and everyone at Freshly Pieced!)
As for birthday sewing, I am making pillowcases for the girls to take home instead of junk bags. It's so close to Halloween, nobody wants more candy at their house so I like sending something useful. Thing 1 picked out the fabric and I have two done so far.
Just Sew Y'all Know. So far I've done two and I have the others cut out.
here. I also made a belated Ghastlie project, a Halloween sign, that I showed here. Check out the other sistahs and their projects today as listed over in the right side of my sidebar!
Along with everything else, I really wanted to make some progress on my red and white hexie quilt. I've primarily been working on sewing together the 'filler' white. I did tell me husband if I EVER decide to do another quilt like this to please tell me there is nothing wrong with applique. I know I'll love it when it's done but, oh my! Here's the bottom connected up.
Well, that's it. No finishes. Oh yeah, I did attend a baby shower yesterday for the Japanese/Austrian baby quilt. Yeah! Done and delivered. I ran into another friend for whom I made a baby/big boy quilt for her third boy and she repeatedly told me how much he loves it. THAT is why we do it my friends! For people who love it and appreciate it!
