Sewing Day

Yeah, Thimbles weekend is finally here. It feels like forever since I have been sewing with everyone in the group. I wasn't able to go last month because of my foot surgery, so it has been a while. It was great to see everyone yesterday, unfortunately there are no photos, I forgot my camera. Everyone was busy working on their own projects. I love to go around and see what everyone is doing. Suzanne was working on a George Washington quilt, she loves Civil War fabrics. Teresa was working on a Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt, Becky was working on the "stones" quilt. Kathy, Becky's friend joined us and was working on a Yellow Brick Road in LSU fabrics. It is going to look great. Pat our fearless leader was working on another neutral quilt. I started my Grandpa's Best, all of the fabrics are cut and I made one of each of the two blocks in the quilt. I wanted to get a feel for how they were going to look. I decided that I needed to add a couple of more reds, and blues. I have been through my stash today and found just what I needed. Next week is stitch in, and I plan on going on Monday and Tuesday. I should be able to get most of the blocks put together. I do have several other projects packed and ready to go, who knows what I will work on. Can't wait for Monday.
