Found this cute little pillow at one of the antique stores near me...
Seems like everybody is doing a little red truck of some kind this season, so I had to join on in.

Weeks worth...

While Mark has been home sick all week, I had time to work on this here and there. We have not been sick in years....literally years! Grand baby brought a virus when he came, Ronna & I got like a 4 hr version and Mark got the full blown 7 day bit.  After he finished the stomach part, he gave me the sinus part back. My ears have been bothering me for about 3 weeks now so I go to Dr. on Tuesday. 
I have the binding cut & ironed, I will sew it on some time today. Hoping to decorate a little this weekend also. Let the season begin!

T- minus....

3 days and counting.....
Are you all ready.... Did you do you make your list, grocery shopping?
There is a lot to do... Family coming over? House cleaned and prepped? Rooms ready if there are staying overnight? There's so much to do.
Remember to sneak some sewing in whenever possible... You know that's a stress reliever. Haha.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Turkey Day and enjoy every minute!

Hope y'all have a fabulous day with the ones you love!

Pineapple quilt...

Found this one on Facebook or Instagram or maybe both, I don't remember. 

It was fun and quick... Gathering all the fabrics, they looked wonderful together. Now that they are all put together I now see my greens needed to be darker. Oh well. Here's a close up..

Pattern was free from Jackie Padesky. @jackiepadesktquilts. She made it and it looked wonderful then offered it to anyone who asked. It measures roughly 62x78. 
Now off to sew backings together.

Double 9 patch

Finished this one this past week. When I took the picture, it was super windy out & this was the best I could do.

It's called Double Nine Patch by Primitive Gatherings. I stopped at the shop today (PG) and got the backing. Well, I got the backings for 5 quilts, bought 1 more kit, and then a couple more pieces of fabric for 2 more quilts in progress. I love keeping busy. Then Dru tells me she's dropping off some samples for me to work on... Eek! I have to have them done before Road to Calif.
