pesky margaret done...

FWS margaret block, now done, papers not removed but it WILL lie flat once they are taken out!

my tiny HST little quilt flimsy, ready for basting...these finish at 1.5", which is tiny for me but nowhere near the expertise of rogue quilter's tiny HSTs....she is a pro at tiny blocks and quilts....

"granny" redo and latest blocks

my "granny" block had a rough edge that would have been hidden in the seam allowance, but as it turns out, the foundations were printed too large so it got a redo and no more rough edge! 

that's "granny" lower right, on the left is "addie" and top right is "jenny"....got to use some of my newly gifted fabrics...and so up to date on these.  good thing, tomorrow is "stars" day.  have started binding the mod spools that's been named "variegated threads," and the little HST project is ready for a border, thinking a poison green here as it's a color not used often.  more hexies got prepped too.  many more ideas swirling around, but for now these are keeping my sewing muse quiescent.  and 58 days to the 365 challenge that is getting more and more thought, mostly regarding colors, values, etc.  *** other than that, it was a lovely warm and sunny day, just right for some yummy scallops at lunch.  now back to the old viking and more stitching fun!

just another manic monday....

well really too early to say but it IS monday, it's on the warm side for november, and another exciting week ahead for lots of (hopefully) sewing time...my dance card is filled for today already!  just last week another delightful package arrived in the mail from a sharing quilter.  here is most of it, the smallest pieces didn't go in the wash as my laundry bag is elsewhere at the moment.  i do like to wash/dry everything before it goes into the stash.  it may have been washed already, i don't know, but another swim won't hurt....


some new prints for the stash and some i've seen before.  no matter, it was a kind gesture and one that is gratefully accepted.  ***  nothing else new in lobsterville except windy, whirling leaves and a rainy weekend now over.   the holiday rush is on, though for us it is a mild flurry with a small family for whom to plan dinners and gifts.  doesn't matter, the excitement of the season is for everyone!
