Lazy weekend

This was a lazy no-sew weekend. I just could not get in the mood. I looked at a few interesting blogs. Played games on Facebook. Ugh! Such a waste of time, I know.  Reading a book that is going nowhere. I really need to get moving on a few projects.

 Getting ready for Thanksgiving. My oldest (military son) is frying a turkey this year. Hubby and I will drive up and have dinner with him and daughter-in-law. I am also bringing a surprise. SSSHHHH!!! My 82 year old dad is driving here Wednesday. Kids don't know that Paw is coming! They will be so happy to see him. Plus I get to have my dad to myself (sort of) for 3 whole days! Then I get to go on a 5 day cruise with hubby! God is good! I am blessed!!

So many quilt patterns!! I have piles of books and patterns and even more ideas for quilts! Organize? I don't think I know how. I try. I fill totes and bins and binders and drawers. I just want to sew! Here's an idea...don't buy any more fabric until I sew all the fabric I now own. Yeah, right!

Also, I have a quilt in the works that MUST be finished (top anyway) by January. It's for a quilt show in March 2014. I have a few blocks made, all paper pieced, but I have a LONG way to go! The theme for the show is "Pineapple Fields Forever". I do love pineapple....but pineapple blocks....well, not my favorite. They are pretty though! Perhaps I'll give you a preview and show you a block here and there as I go. Wouldn't want show you the entire quilt until it hangs in the show.

Here is one of 14 pineapple blocks ( they will be of two different colors), I have five done. THEN there are 13 applique blocks (not cut out , yet) and a few pieces blocks and paper pieced border. YIKES!!!! Let me get off of here and sew.

P.S. I little encouragement here and there won't hurt :)

I got hooked on these scrumptious scarves!

They are crocheted using a yarn called Sashay. Comes in so many colors! I have sold several of them and also made some for my girls. SSHHH!!!

Deonn's Portable Design Wall (UFO to Go)

If you have not made one of these, now is the time! Here's one I made. After watching the video I may turn it into the "semi-deluxe" version.
