Well, I have had one of the least productive weeks ever, but at least I have a good excuse. I came down with a terrible cold--you know it is bad when even the kids in my class avoided me and told me to use hand sanitizer! I did not touch a sewing thing until today. I did manage to cut and sew the borders on my 2016 Butterfly Threads Mystery Quilt during this morning's football games.
I ran outside when the wind seemed to calm to down for a picture because this is my October One Monthly Goal (OMG) and I have to get it posted ASAP. Here is the link for that:
I love this picture because Fergie made an appearance and got rather spooked by my flapping in the wind quilt/kite. She even put her ears down and cowered a bit. Not much scares her...
This is the backing I have in my stash for the mystery quilt. I have five yards which is good because the quilt is big! Now, it heads to the large to be quilted pile.
One of my schools is having a Halloween Carnival tomorrow night, so I am making bundt cakes for the cake walk. I made two devil's food this morning and have two spice cakes in the oven now. I will melt the cans of icing in the microwave and drizzle them on top. Wrap them up in plastic wrap, label them, and deliver in the morning.
I am working on an embroidery project for Slow Sunday Stitching, but it is secret--so no pictures yet. Be inspired with other handwork here:
Have you been participating in the Missing Market posts over on Instagram? I have and have loved seeing all the things there and from the Quilt Market in Houston. My Instagram is @tanyaquiltsinco
This will be another Lori Holt Sew Along in 2017--count me in!
Have a great week!
