My Eventide is all done, I'll post the picture tomorrow, for Tuesday, Eventide update day!! I'm renaming mine, "Dancing with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight". We have at least two other finishes also, not only has Judith pieced her Eventide, it's quilted and Deb's is all pieced too.
Now that my sew along project is done, I'm playing catch up and finish up with some other projects .
Somehow I got 5 months behind on my Fat Quarter Shop 2010 Designer Mystery Block of the Month.
Initially, I wasn't using any of the blue fabric that was included with each block, but when my daughter was home, she thought this quilt would look cute hanging in her apartment, and she liked the blue, so it's back in. I'm so relieved, I was really stumped on what to do about the blue background in the tree block.
So far I have "tweaked" every block but one. The mitten block is exactly like the pattern, except I made mine a little shorter, to add a thin strip of background fabric to the top of the block. The sashing for the finishing kit is the same fabric as the mitten and I thought a little separation would be a good thing. I also changed up the fabric for the tree and the ornaments.
So now I'm only 2 months behind on the kits that have been mailed with only 2 more kits left for the whole project.
This cute quilt is still available at the Fat Quarter Shop, but I wouldn't wait much longer, I'm guessing it would be selling out pretty soon.
I finally learned how to make collages for my blog! Poor you, you'll have to put up with them all the time now.
Like this one, which I am naming "Ode to Reese's"
What's up with all the sizes of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups these days? I found 4 different sizes at one store, and that's not including my all time favorite, the Reese's Easter Egg. ( No Reese's Peanut Butter Cups were wasted in the making of this collage.)
And one last update, we have a new member of the family. . .

my daughter has spent the last several weeks searching shelters and dog adoption events for a dog, and this weekend she found her dog. He weighs around 10 pounds, is 6 months old, and my daughter was told he was a "chiweenie", that's a chihauhau dachshund mix. We don't see dogs like this where we live, but they seem to be pretty popular in California. This pup was rescued when he was just 3 months old from an over crowded shelter in Los Angeles County and has been living with its foster family, just waiting for my daughter to find him. He doesn't have a name yet, but he couldn't have a more loving home. Welcome little guy!
I can hardly wait to see him and Cooper together at Thanksgiving, I'm guessing what my daughter's dog lacks in size, he'll make up for in speed.
See ya tomorrow for the Eventide Sew Along Update!!
