Hellloooo is anyone home? 

On a whim the other day I decided to cut some fleece I have had for ages in to 10" wide strips & make scarves for my sisters and daughter for Christmas.  Quick & easy gifts.  I have a rotary blade that has kind of a crimped edge so that is what I used to cut the strips with just to give a bit more pizzazz.  The pic is not the best, but you get the idea.

Diana I can relate to having the furniture all over the place. We are just having hardwood put down in living rm dining rm so had to pack China cabinet again! Seems not long ago I inboxed the China when we moved but it is going on two years, where does the time go!!LOL. I am sure you'll be glad to get your kitchen back. Then it will be remember where you have put things in their new home, been there too!!
Not much sewing done lately as this last week had a bad cold and chest cough, that has made me feel rotten.

Very nice Janet, it feels good to finish a quilt. I have one made sometime ago just waiting for the binding to be sewn down, not my favourite job.
Today is the final 'kitchen day' the flooring goes down and then the fridge/freezer that is standing in the hall can be moved into the kitchen. Then I need to decide where to put things and have a sort out, probably the hardest part for me.

I had a lot of fun at the festival on Saturday.  The weather was very hot & humid though which made walking around feel kind of oppressive.  I did see my friend Beth at the quilt show which was nice.  Once again I was invited to join that guild so I think I'm going to visit one of their meetings & then decide.  The problem is they meet almost 40 miles away & at night so I'm not sure I want to go to the meetings when there is snow on the ground. 

I put the last stitch in the binding of another quilt last night.  Members of the Piece Around the World group made the blocks for me about 3 yrs ago for my birthday.  It feels so good to see these tops actually turn in to real quilts!

Have fun, Janet! Hope the rain holds off!

Thanks Rachel & Debbi.  This one definitely took patience! 

I'm going to a fall festival in a neighboring town today.  This is the very first town to be entirely designated as a national historic site and it is always fun to go to the festivals they hold there.  There will also be a small quilt show which I enjoy going to as well.  It is overcast & we are supposed to get rain later on tonight so I figure I had better go today instead of tomorrow!

Wow, Janet! I don't know if I would have had the patience to stitch that label out. You are awesome for doing that!
