catching up is hard to do..

hello all..

it's been a while since i've posted... i've been very very busy.. my lovely sister came to visit for the last week so we've had a fantastic week of fun.. fun.. fun...  spent a couple of days at the Hard Rock hotel and casino in Hollywood, florida.. and had a blast..  and i didn't do to bad with the gambling either..  broke about even!!...  saturday we had a big family party to celebrate all the family's fall birthdays... yummy italian menu!!.. ate to much but was soooo worth it!!..  and we also did a day trip to Downtown Disney for some lunch and shopping lot's of fun... and lunch at our local seafood place Crabby Bill's where we could sit outside in the sun and have a few drinks with our lunch... but then came the bad news.. our wonderful Uncle Ernie passed away... :(   so mom and my sister took off this morning for NYC..  and i stayed home to keep an eye on dad...  RIP Uncle!!... i love you!!..

so... needless to say i haven't done much sewing.. quilting or even cross stitch... i did finish a couple of things before she got here... so i'll show those..

this is the mini quilt i did for the guild's challenge... we all picked a crayon out of a bag and had to use that colour with either white or black for the quilt... i like how this one came out... and .. i won best of show for the quilts that were submitted... ..

and i finished getting the borders on my Halloween quilt.. it came out pretty cute.. i'll have to remember to get it quilted sometime next year so i can use it for next Halloween..

and i got the borders on the let's twist fall table runner...

and put together another fall runner top done using the easy striped tablerunner pattern...  and a candle mat..

and i made this little case for my sister... it was supposed to be for her Nook.. but.. she had one... so she's using it to keep all kinds of stuff handy in her purse..

and the only cross stitch i've done is work more on the Winter Village for the shop model..

hmmm... i think that's it... now i just need to get some MOJO going.. and get busy on the rest of the stuff that i need to get done for the holidays..

  1. WOW! I'd say you've been busy! I love the last table runner - gorgeous fabric and style.... another CQ project... shirt girl... I can't get mine going let alone dstart something new! I'm in a bad mojo funk... I think I've just got too many house things going on here to concentrate on any sewing projects. Might have to remedy that some time next week.

    Glad to hear you and your sister had a good time!
