I am glad to say the piggies were finished for RSC17. I need to lay this one out to see if I need more or I have enough. I made a barn block and want to add a tractor block (yet to be made), so this one might just be at the 'let's get it done' stage.
This would photo better outdoors, but it is raining today. Happy dance that the temperature quilt had it's next row added. I am really liking how this is looking
Sadly, poor Earlene did not get a single stitch added to her. My Bag Ladies are crying in the corner because I have neglected them for so long. Hibernation days are coming and they will certainly fill in those times with their whimsy.
Speaking of neglect, hmmmm...... Actually this is my tower by the machine of all the year long projects. QALs, SALs, block play, etc... These must get to a finish and why I make November and December MY time.
And let's be honest while we're at it - there are more 'to be finished' projects on those three shelves. I won't show you the pile of quilts that are waiting to be quilted. They are stored front, batt, and backing together just waiting.
But those 'squirrels' keep popping up! Actually this is a guild challenge-sew along. The pretty pattern is one I've had for some time and is just to aid with the directions for the actual pattern we are using - no lovely pictures, just printed paper. I am using this lovely jelly roll of 'Sophie' by Mary Koval for Windham Fabrics. I will have to pull some stash from my CW tote to add yardage.
I, also, have another workshop Saturday on making landscapes. Bonnie Lindsey of the Quilt Zoo came to our guild to show technique and a trunk show and then offered workshop time at her shop for two Saturdays. Of course I am interested in the miniatures and post cards to the larger projects - a day to play.
No furkids today, they have been either outside day and night or hibernating in hideaways somewhere upstairs.
