WIP Wed and Happy Thanksgiving Thursday!

I've got a few things in progress going on.  I took the week off but didn't get nearly as much done as I would have liked.  Sometimes it's really nice just taking it easy and having a lazy day or two!  Here's how far I've gotten on the log cabin blocks.  There's 169 of those sweet little things.  Long way to go....Tumbler quilt in progress at the top.  I'm using those as leaders and enders.

Here's all the logs waiting patiently for their turn to join the other logs in the blocks.

The label for the Freedom quilt.  I got a quote from the Army facebook page and added 3 stars, one for each soldier that did not come back with them.  Just need to get this sewn on

Made a little tote for a 4 years for my daughter.  Every year they provide a tote with art supplies and books.  I made this one portfolio size for her latest art samples and a few books on her reading list.  I was in such a hurry to get this done that I didn't mark from side to side where the handles should go.  I just marked up and down and between the handles.  I don't know why I thought going from the inside of the V was a good idea.  If I would have gone on the outside of the V all would have close enough you wouldn't even notice.  I sewed those handles on so well that I'm not sure I can get them off without ripping the fabric.  Oh boy!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving day.


  1. Happy Thanksgiving!
    I love the colors you choose.
    I'm running a giveaway, would you like to enter?

  2. You said..."Long way to go....Tumbler quilt in progress at the top. I'm using those as leaders and enders."....I know what leaders are as I have to use them just to get the thread caught on the leaders (I call them thread heads, in this case! ) question and why do you do this? I am thinking to sew the little pieces together while using as a thread-head, but...what does the ender do? And how do you keep it all organized so you know what you have going on?

  3. Yes I would so agree with you that taking a day or 2 off is wonderful!! Happy Turkey Day!!

  4. Hmmmm......I take lots of days off....giggle.


I would love to hear from you, comments and questions welcome!
