I made a pair of these for FNSI.
The week was busy with a lot of embroidery work that had to get done, but I was also able to get a few other things sewn too.
I had a request for another doll school uniform for a Christmas luncheon being held on December 4th. I need to finish up the handwork on it, but the main sewing is finished. They always bring in so much money for the school.
I am still on track for my Christmas Cactus Quilt Along. The reds look really dark in the pictures, but they are not in real life. I am loving this project and cannot wait to start assembling the piece. I think we have about 12 more sets of blocks to do. We make four of each block and there are 25 blocks. You have to be really careful to keep them numbered for when the assembly starts.
With a large crowd coming next week for Thanksgiving, I am trying to get things finished up this week. I will be sending off my blue and yellow swap block to Emily a little ahead of schedule.
We are forecast to get a good winter storm over the next three days. The temperatures have been dropping throughout the day and we are suppose to get anywhere from one to three inches of rain. The mountains are predicted to get snow measurements into the feet. It is a great start for ski season. It would be the perfect weekend to snuggle up with hot chocolate in front of a roaring fire. Unfortunately, that is NOT going to happen as we have too much going on both days. Too bad!!!
It seems as though our weeks are always full with a large family. We had the pleasure of attending a concert last weekend for the 2010 Contemporary Music Festival gold medal winners. The performances were incredible! Our 12 year old grandson was playing the piano in it and did an amazing job. If I knew how to upload a video, I would share it with you, but I don't!! Can you ever teach an old dog a new trick????? We took my mom and she had so much fun. To see the smile on her face said it all. Same grandchild now wants to take up the violin!!!!
I hope you are all enjoying a grand weekend.
