But first…………….Happy Thanksgiving Day to Canada
Happy Columbus Day to the US!
We had such a good time – I can hardly wait for the gathering later today with another side of the family!
In the meantime – I actually do have a design wall again! Thanks to everybody that shared ideas with me. In the end we adapted the idea that Barb (no blog) sent. A flannel sheet and a couple of pieces of doweling that were standing around. I sewed a sleeve in each end of the sheet, threaded the doweling through, added string, and hung it up on a couple of picture hooks. Two holes in the wall, and the bottom doweling adds enough weight to keep the ‘wall’ fairly taut and steady.
I can’t get back far enough to get the whole wall in the pic, but I’m sure you ‘get the picture’. The wall is about 90 inches square, so big enough for most quilts.
So, on the wall already, you see the beginnings of a couple of quilts.
On the left – the first three blocks for Myra’s Mystery Quilt-a-long. I’m a little behind, but also got these 32 cuties done for the same quilt:
Back to the design wall – on the right are the first steps of Down Winterberry Lane. Both Jo and I have been experiencing some limitations to our ability to actually sit and sew, so we’re slowed down somewhat. And now Jo is headed to Virginia to meet her newest grandson, and we’ve just decided to pick away at this the best we can. When we get back to it we’ll get going with our posts at Cross-Border Quilters.
Also got completed the October block for the Canadian BOM with Quilting Canadians:
It has been a fulfilling and satisfying week – once again, thankful that we have all we have, can do all we do, are blessed with family, friends, fun and fellowship! Blessings to all of you! Peg
