Friday, October 7th, Kynlee turned 3 and the big celebration was Saturday. It was fun watching the kids play and seeing the grand-kiddoes grow up. She had a great party and enjoyed getting a bunch of clothes to play “dress-up”.
After we got home from the party I decided to do a couple of replacements on my bow tie quilt. I decided they were to light and it would forever bug me and might look like I had a hole in it, so I made 2 more bow ties and put in the new ones.
I’m a little behind on my Primitive Gatherings, Magic of Christmas, so it was time to work on Block 8. That little block was a bit of a challenge, especially since I decided to use directional fabric, but I got it done and I like it.
We had a small gathering for our Farm Girl Vintage group on Columbus Day. I got a couple of blocks done. Wahoo!
I finally got a chance to go to LaPorte and do a few “fall” décor updates. I really enjoy decorating for fall and hopefully all the ones coming during the next few weeks will like it.
Julie Moser had invited her family down from Michigan to attend a retreat and I was invited to join their family to sew and teach a wool class. So I did. I taught them a Primitive Gatherings table runner, Snowman for Hire. They all did good.
I got some sewing time in. I had cut out my Sew Kind of Wonderful, Mini Pumpkin top on Wednesday and I was ready to sew it. This was my first time to use the Quick Curve ruler and I got to work on the curved piecing. That was a bit of a slow process, but I finally worked through it. The blocks are oversized so you don’t have to worry abut being precise, but I wasn’t sure on how to do the trimming up, but with the help of Marcia Henry, we got it worked out. I got it all sewn together Friday night.
I wanted to just play with this pattern and use a mix of fun fabrics and reproduction styled fabrics and I used some grunge fabric as my background. I was very pleased how it came out. Proof that the old and new fabrics can work together in the right setting! Ha!
I want to thank Julie and her family for allowing me to spend time with them and get to know them. I sure had a good time!
After getting home and trying to move back into my room I got to work on my Primitive Gatherings, Magic of Christmas, Block 9. I got it done. Who knew that the square-in-a-square block would be so popular in all these little blocks?
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
