Friday Night Sew In

Sorry to have been 'missing' for so long - we have had Bronchitis (this deserves a capital letter) and I've just been worn out at the end of each day.  Other odd and various things have also gone on, such as our car and oven quitting, costly repairs but both were repaired by my youngest son!
Thank you, Brad!!

I have my fabric cut out and ready to sew for the Friday Night Sew-In.
For more information, please click here

I used the tumbler die with the Accuquilt GO! and cut enough tumbler pieces to make a sofa quilt.
Since its getting colder and the evenings are longer, we need a TV snuggle quilt:)
I didn't buy 'new' fabric, just dug into my stash for enough yardage for a two color quilt.

This is the first die I've used other than cutting squares, and I'm very impressed with the ease of cutting perfect pieces.  I did outline the 'die' with a purple marker for ease of lining up the fabric.  Makes the pictures easier to see, too:)

Off to get busy, hopefully back with a progress report  this evening!

Ugh! Tuesday

We have some super strain of the Crud here:), I wake myself up at night breathing so loudly and coughing.
Please don't touch the screen while reading this, I hate to pass on the germs:)))

duh! Thursday

Well, I am laughing at myself right now!  I took quite a few pictures, but didn't have the memory card in my camera. Duh!
I did get a sofa cushion slipcovered, only 9 more to go.  The first one is always the hardest, so I hope to get them finished in the next couple of days. A very old sofa that is still very sturdy, just needs some updating.
Pictures soon, if I can remember to put the memory card back in the camera:)
Raining here, snow flurries expected tomorrow night.  I'm never ready for cold weather, its just too early for even a hint of snow!

Will leave you with a picture of Victoria, who is growing by leaps and bounds!  We affectionately call her Hell Cat now, as our two older cats let her get by with everything.  She is everywhere at one time, then all of a sudden, she is asleep and looks so sweet.  She is now 9 weeks old! A kitten by any other name-

What have you been doing?  Hope you are having a lovely week!
