the party’s over…

Wow! What a wonderful Open House we had! Thanks to everyone who came or participated via the internet!  It took us all day Monday to sort and pick through orders, and we still didn’t get to them all.  We are cutting kits for the “I’ll be home for christmas” quilt.  We had to make 61 more coupon books just for the people who were at the open house.  So the last two days have been work, work, work…no sewing, but…Here is one of the things…I am working on…my shop kit for the Civil War Tribute quilt came in and I am having a blast making these big blocks…18″, the last blocks I made finished 4 1/2″ so it is nice to do a switch..Here is my kit..

Here is the first months blocks finished…two blocks are in the first month, 18″ and 12″ finished.  It is so fun…and the fabrics are so cool…  

getting back to the open house, we had a great response to the bed turning ….Carole Charles graciously showed some of  her quilts with us….we will do it again! Here is the grand finally of the bed turning…I am looking forward to going this weekend to Homestead Cabin Retreat, in Hillpoint WI, It is pot luck weekend so each few of us is responsible for a meal and that means that Patsy gets to sew with us!  I am trying to pull fabrics together to start working on a new quilt for the next book Carole and I will be doing…along with trying to do my part of the meal preparations…my list is as follows: Strawberry Slush, Chicken Enchiladas…i just have to make the meat, we will assemble there, and Texas Caviar…plus anything else I want to eat…sounds good doesn’t it.  So far, the groceries have been bought and the slush is in the freezer…well it is time to get ready for exercise…and I need to remember to get more sizing….this time i am buying all they have…all for now!
