Thanks so much for all your words of encouragement over my discouragement.....
I've finished the star blocks for Mocha Trail and am thrilled that you all think these blocks are winners.
Nicole, at Sister's Choice, who is also working on this pattern, mentioned she made a star block then the alternate 9 patches block, to even things out. Great idea, something I probably should have done.
Oh well, here they are.....
I don't think my humility block is going to make the cut.
So now it's on to these.
I just need 11 more. And I'm sure you're all correct, once I get these blocks in the mix, things will improve.
I tend to have an unrealistic expectation that my current project will surpass my last project. I've had a pretty good run, my last 7 projects are some of my all time favorites, but we'll see, maybe once the blocks are all done and the is quilt assembled, this project will really come to life for me. I'm not quitting until it's done, like it or not!!
I won a giveaway!
A book, Fresh Vintage Sewing by Joann Figueroa, some lovely fall fabric, and pumpkin coasters.
I have a couple of Fig Tree patterns but this is my first book, I've really enjoyed reading it.
Those fall fabrics sure will make a great table runner.
But look at these coasters...
I just love them! I have them setting out in my living room, they'll be out until Thanksgiving is over, and nobody better even think about sitting anything on them!!
Thanks so much Brandie, I love it all.!!
The time I'm able to spend in my sewing room just took a hit, it's official, I've started decorating for Christmas!!
Saturday we got all the Snow Village houses out of the attic. My daughter is coming home for Thanksgiving and since she's home for such a short time, we like to have a few Christmas decorations ready to light up on Thanksgiving evening. We have our own little lighting ceremony once it gets dark, we turn out the lights, light up the villages, and eat dessert.
If I can't be sewing, my next favorite pastime would be decorating. Getting each one of these houses out of their boxes and setting them up out all over the house is like Christmas morning to me.
